should there by a see-also section ?[edit]

Would make sense to have a map of the cemetery, as it would be a great help for those who don't know the area.
I have heard from someone who claims to have been involved in SOME of the activities going on in Highgate in the early 1970s. They says that a group of them ended up direly drunk, and got the idea of trying to talk to the spirit of Karl Marx, using his tombstone for the focus of attention (so no desecration intended, nor done), and that everything got out of hand, and gathered a life of it's own when they were spotted/misidentified/beat a hasty retreat. (Other groups might have tried this earlier, or done other stuff.)
If it seems a reasonable explaination for part of what happened then perhaps it should be writen up, and have links to, Tulpa, Necromancy, and Karl Marx. Steve10345 (talk) 02:51, 1 August 2008 (UTC)

Spurious Copeland link and sentence fragment.[edit]

There is a strange link to a website about the "Copeland paranormal investigation" and a sentence fragment about an empty tomb under the section "Mass vampire hunt."

The website is riddled with spelling errors and poor grammar, and does not seem like a very reliable source, and indeed it is very difficult to tell what relevance it has for this article, as it is not a website about the Highgate "vampire." As such I am removing both the link and the sentence fragment "Discovered empty tomb of the Copeland family." This is all it says, and it has no logical connection to the previous sentence.

Asa Bailey Film[edit]

Can this be verified as being relevanton this page? Seems a little "tenuous" including a link to a band using material from any such film... Of course if there's an interview, or such like, detailing how/why they were inspired by the story it might be a different story.

NB Previous poster on talk page ( didn't sign with tides etc. is that normal?

Fred Vargas' book[edit]

Please note that Fred Vargas wrota a book called 'Un lieu incertain', which starts in Higegate cementry and is partially inspired by the Highgate vampire story! The book was a bestseller, at least in France and Italy. Can someone add something? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 17:39, 17 March 2010 (UTC)
