I think it's pretty cool that owners of classic hearses band together into communities, create events and drive their hearses around in caravans and parades!
Denver Hearse Club
A pretty active hearse club in Colorado.
NOLA Hearses and Pro Cars
They're proud they've been banned from 6 New Orleans-area cemeteries.
Mortis City Hearse Club of Michigan
This Detroit area hearse club features forums, a gallery, mailing list and chat room for area enthusiasts.
Rain City Hearse Club
A Seattle-Tacoma area club.

Extensive photos from this blogger's visit to the themed restaurant in Tokyo. I'm jealous!
This chain of restaurants features burlesque and cabaret dinner theater shows. Dracula's in Queensland is currently featuring "Redrum Cabaret," and in Melbourne they're performing "Sin and Tonic." I definitely hope to check one of these out if my dream comes true and I get to tour Australia in the next couple of years.
This Dracula-themed dinner show takes place at several different restaurants (often hotel restaurants) in Germany. You can also book a themed show for your office party or private event. The site is in German, of course. You can browse through the photo gallery.
A pizza place in Krakow, Poland. They seem to have a large selection of pizzas, and apparently serve on plates bearing a cute Dracula illustration.
A social network for the alternative, goth and fetish lifestyles. It appears to be run on the Ning platform. There are blogs, groups, events and a section for music.
A fairly large and active vampire social network that also looks like it's run on Ning. Lots of groups, and very active forums. There's also a bit of a focus on vampire dating here.
"Werewolf Ball is the social networking website for Werewolves, Shifters, Therians, and Otherkin. We are a home for real people across the globe." Resources and databases for werewolf-related info.
Legendary horror filmmaker of the 1950s and 1960s blogs about his current projects. He recently announced that his daughter Terry is taking over William Castle Productions.
A fan site for dark director and author Guillermo del Toro. His films include the lavishly dark and beautiful Pan's Labyrinth, Hellboy, Blade 2, Mimic and several other in the dark and horror genres.
The fan site offers news on everything he's up to (I'm looking forward to his final book in the Strain Trilogy: The Night Eternal), plus an active discussion forum.
This shop sells really cool skull cameo designs on rings, bracelets, necklaces and earrings. They also sell vintage style goth necklaces, elegant hair combs, and unusual skull and pirate engagement rings. Truly gorgeous things here.
A shop selling adorably spooky goodies including skull-bedecked baby bibs; Frankenstein aprons; bat and skull kitchen mitts, pot holders and kitchen towels; monster and vampire pillows; tote bags and hats with dark and horror themes.
It makes me nervous that the copyright notice says 2008 though - is this shop still open? I'd suggest using the contact link to verify before purchasing anything.
