    One thought on “Vampire Circus”

    1. Ten years ago, in the rural community of Shettle, four men helped to kill a vampire called Karl Mitterhaus. He vowed revenge - “your children will die!” - before his body was consumed by fire. Today, Shettle has fallen into decline, its residents plagued with ill fortune and when the Circus of Nights rolls into town, entrancing the public, those four men - a newspaper editor, a doctor, a teacher and a private investigator - know that they must protect their own children against supernatural [...]

    2. As others have said here, this isn't a straight novelisation of the Hammer vampire flick, but instead it takes the concept, the bare bones of the plot, some of the characters (renaming some also) and updates it to modern day England. It loses some of it's appeal for me in that what attracted me to the film, and this book, was basically the gothic elements of it set as it was somewhere in middle Europe (Austria?) of roughly the 1700's I think. Some of the elements of the book I didn't find too co [...]

    3. A nine year old girl is abducted and murdered by her schoolteacher and her lover but avenged by four men from the local village. A decade later a mysterious circus comes to town, bespelling the villagers and ensuring nobody can leave or get in. Only the four men are able to see through the fug and realise that something isn't quite right. I don't think I was in the right mood for this novel as I found it too trashy and not that exciting.

    4. A good bloody moden Vampier/Hammer Horror start and end with a interesting Hammer feel in the middle, giving an old tale a fresher tuch.

    5. I'm a massive fan of the film and when I started reading this I thought what on earth? It's set in modern times and although the events are synonomous with the events in the movie they are given a modern twist. Some of the characters have changed name and profession as well. One of the criticisms of the film was that it featured too many characters - well this novel features even more! Instead of streamlining many of the characters in the film are actually several characters in the book which wa [...]

    6. Okay i do not like giving authors a slap but I am going to here.This book is too close to two other famous books to be originalI struggled through it because of it close similarities to Something wicked this way comes by Ray Bradbury and It by Stephen King.i am sorry Mark but you need to write something that does not walk in the same pathways as other books to the extent that I was going slowly nuts trying to keep going on your book which was only different in that its setting was in England ( b [...]

    7. A respectable updating of Hammer's cult horror classic (which I personally adore). Kudos to Morris for contemporizing the tale and making the characters far more proactive. On the flip side, a reason why I loved the film is that it took place in a time period that was dangerous and unpredictable and a part of me would have wanted to see the story take place in that time frame. That being said, I wouldn't mind buying this, a quick, breezy and action-packed read.

    8. A rather fun novel based upon the old Hammer classic. However rather than being set in the usual vague ye olden times somewhere in Mitteleuropea, Morris has updated the story to modern day rural England. And despite seeming like sacrilege for Hammer fans, in Morris' hands it actually works rather well, making for a fun old school tale of a small community overwhelmed by an ancient evil.

    9. This opinion is going to irk some people, but I have never really been a big fan of the movie. With that, I really enjoyed this update. If you are looking for a straight novelization, this is not for you.
