What's On - November 2009

Confirmation that it's the Chinese year of the Vampire continues this month, with the release of the second Twilight movie: New Moon, as well as screenings of Nosferatu, Vampyr, Bram Stoker's Dracula, plus a director's cut of Thirst, showing at The London Korean Film Festival.

And, in non-vampiric related events, there's the Comica Festival to explore, a Batman All-Nighter at the IMAX, and talks on everything from Bacteria to the Afterlife, plus the end of the world (- see 2012).
