About the Project

The screaming finally stopped as the vampire turned to ash in it's stone coffin. Sergeant Mulhern continued to grip the wooden stake, his face covered in the creatures blood. "So much blood" he whispered shaking his head. "Over here" shouted Private Perkins from across the gloomy castle crypt, "There seems to be a stairwell underneath this one". The Sergeant closed his eyes and sighed. "Jolly good" exclaimed Captain Blatherdash, "Mr Mclure bring your torch".
