Actress/Writer Ingrid Pitt

Diabolique Magazine’s excursion into the world of original content continues to grow. With the exception of this entry, on the last Friday of every month, Diabolique Magazine is releasing another installment in our exclusive new original short story series: THE EXHUMATION COLLECTION.

The Exhumation Collection is devoted to bringing you, our horror readers, challenging, thought-provoking, dread-inspiring literature by the best up-and-coming genre writers in the horror community. Sometimes surreal, sometimes nightmarish, and sometimes even hilarious, these stories reflect the standards held by Diabolique as a brand, and we are proud to associate ourselves with these brilliant writers.

Our second entry into The Exhumation Collection, following “The Drowning” by Catherine E. Kovach, is the spine-tingling “Hisako San” by the late, great actress, writer and Hammer Horror icon Ingrid Pitt.

The beautiful Ingrid Pitt is best known to you from her lustful roles in The Vampire Lovers, Countess Dracula, The House That Dripped Blood, The Wicker Man and Doctor Who. However, Pitt was equally as prolific of a writer, having written the novels Cuckoo Run, The Perons, Eva’s Spell, Katarina, The Ingrid Pitt Bedside Companion for Vampire Lovers, The Autobiography of Ingrid Pitt : Life’s A Scream, Ingrid Pitt Bedside Companion for Ghosthunters, The Ingrid Pitt Book of Murder, Torture and Depravity, Annul Domini and Dracula Who…?. You can learn more about Ingrid Pitt, her writings and more at her official website.

“Hisako San” is a heart-pounding, gripping story of two detectives searching for a mysterious, small figure, inflicting a horrifying plague against all of those who obstruct her revenge. So, without further adieu, cover your mouth and investigate The Exhumation Collection with “Hisako San” by Ingrid Pitt…
