Your #Halloween Movie Choice: Already Dead @Posh_Dinosaur

DC Editor Adam writes…




If you are looking for the ideal movie to watch after our Halloween Ghost tours tonight, here's my pick.

Already Dead is a comedy mini-documentary about recovering zombies. Darren Ruston stars as George, a zombie living in the community 15 years after a zombie outbreak. Zombies now live among us, working 9-5 jobs, holidaying in Barbados and living "life" to the fullest. In Already Dead, a documentary crew have been given exclusive access to a group of zombie's day to day "lives" to discover if we've truly come to accept zombies.


Here's the trailer…





You can watch Already Dead on Amazon Prime here: www.amazon.co.uk

#HappyHalloween – A Wander in Abney Park Cemetery

DC Editor Adam writes…


Yesterday, the day before Halloween, I awakened my inner Goth and made the most of the milky October sunshine with a long wander around London's most beautiful cemetery, Abney Park in Stoke Newington. 


Abney Park Cemetery was founded in the 1840's…





It replaced Bunhill Fields as the principal burial ground for dissenters and non-conformists.




It is home to 196,843 "Permanent Londoners".



The cemetery is named for Sir Thomas Abney, Lord Mayor of London 1700-01.



It covers 31 acres of Stoke Newington.




Among the famous burials are feminist writer Mary Hays (1843) and William and Catherine Booth, founders of the Salvation Army.

In & Around London… #Halloween Tomorrow


Monday is mute on The Daily Constitutional (well, almost mute) – because Monday is the day when we post five images captured in and around London by London Walks Guides and London Walkers.









Collated on a theme or an area, if you've got some great shots of our capital and want to join in send your pictures to the usual address.


Some London Halloween shots…
