->''Film/HammerHorror was ''set'' in Uberwald, where [[RustproofBlood blood is bright red]] and [[GoryDiscretionShot there's never too much of it]].''
-->--'''Creator/TerryPratchett''', ''The Art of Literature/{{Discworld}}''

->"It was a dreadful place; a land perpetually shrouded in gloom and mist, where abandoned castles glared down like hungry ogres on the dismal roads; where sullen villagers, some bearing obvious stigmata of mutation, mumbled dark warnings against going abroad by night; and where, one evening, a red-eyed, pale-faced nobleman studied us hungrily through the curtained window of his night-black coach, for all the world like a Bretonnian epicure inspecting his next meal... Of all the awful lands that I had then journeyed through, I have no hesitation in saying that Sylvania was easily the most dire."
