Lucky me: I have off! Have never been to Amberg; can anyone give me any tips? Will probably drive up and may want to spend a night=anyplace central and still within my (admittedly small-)budget
. Any information would be appreciated.
Any other English-speaking horror-fans thinking about showing up?

There are some great places to stay in Amberg. There's the TulipInn 09621/4830 and - you will have to get in quick as we have lots of filmmakers coming from around the world and the rooms are filling up fast.

We have some great additions to our film schedule including Trailer park of terror and Let the right one in. It is going to be a greta weekend of horror film watching.

Hope you can make it!

Well, we're going. My husband has really authentic looking fangs and cat eye contacts and theatrical make up. We are there! I died my hair midnight black. Not for Halloween but it was a good excuse. Always wanted to see what i would look with black hair since I'm blonde (ugh, now I"m more a dirty blonde with gray highlights) with blue eyes. I'm kind of freaked about the hair since it's sooo goth dark but excited. Should be great fun!
