Product description

From the Back Cover

"Visit candlelit cemeteries in Oaxaca, duck the whips of Krampus in Salzburg, hunt zombies in Britain, and dance with witches atop Brocken Mountain on Walpurgis Night . . . a deliciously creepy companion for the free-spirited armchair traveler."
--Lesley Bannatyne, author of Halloween Nation: Behind the Scenes of America's Fright Night, Halloween expert and historian

"An insightful, personal exploration of humankind's global fascination with the monstrous."
--Lisa Morton, author of Ghosts: A Haunted History andTrick or Treat: A History of Halloween

"A fascinating glimpse into the exploration of the darker, more fantastic corners of our imagination from around the world!"
--Edward Douglas, founder of and cocomposer for the award-winning recording act Midnight Syndicate

"An excitingly macabre tour through a horror lover's best attractions and events!"
--Justin Lewis, Mr. Frights

Follow author Chris Kullstroem as she sets out on a yearlong, eleven-country tour to explore the seemingly universal fascination with fear, death, and monsters. From home to home, Kullstroem traveled the world via Couchsurfing, a hospitality network that pairs travelers with local hosts at no cost.

Chronicled with insightful detail and surprising humor, Drawn to the Dark explores why so many find thrills in forms of fright. Each eerie enactment evokes a sense of wonder, demonstrating powerful emotions that transcend language and culture to reveal a connection that we all share.

About the Author

She has researched haunted attractions, ghost tours, cemeteries and other forms of scare-based tourism in several countries. Kullstroem also holds seminars on how entertaining scare venues blend history, theater, and social interaction, and what these shows can teach us about ourselves and the world around us. Kullstroem received her bachelor's degree in philosophy and English from the University of Connecticut and her master's degree in philosophy from the University of Illinois at Springfield.
