Our Biggest Nightmare Came True — It is Raining Ghost Bones in the UK
The castle made famous by Bram Stokerâs 1897 gothic horror novel âDraculaâ has been terrorizing it’s neighboring residents in Whitby, North Yorkshire with aÂ Â shower of human bonesÂ –Â a recent landslide has caused the townâs seaside cemetery to slowly cascade down the mountain.
Residents say that a leaky drainage pipe is responsible for deteriorating the cliff where the castle sits for many years now, and recent heavy rains threaten to be the final push needed to send the rest of the ancient resting places into the communityâs backyard.
For many of the townspeople, this grave condition is an all-too-real horror story. âDracula is fantasy, but this is reality and it has given us sleepless nights,â said local business owner Barry Brown. “Some people have already packed up and left.â Uh, our question is: why has anyone stayed?
Town officials say they are âmonitoring the situationâ and reassured the public that the only remains being exposed are bones, since the cemetery at St. Maryâs church has not provided any new homes for the dead since 1865. Oh, phew, so no rotting flesh or anything, justÂ ancient ghost bones.Â Cool, way less creepy.
Apparently, tourists a good majority of tourists visit Whitby to visit Dracula’s grave, further proving that we humans are idiots who also probably believe that ‘The Highlander’ was a documentary, and the events happened in real time.
