Party Ideas

So I've just won a boxed murder mystery game on ebay (a bargain as they retail here for between £15 and £25, but you can only play once so ebay is the perfect place to get them cheap).

The setting is a Transylvanian castle, and I was wondering if anyone had any good ideas for suggesting how I can decorate my living room for this. I'm thinking a kind of toned-down Rocky Horror at the moment. Ideas for stuff to put on the walls, lighting (I'm thinking candles and lamps as much as possible at the moment), table decorations, possible party favours, confectionery etc. etc.

It's not a massive room, I'll have to bring in the garden table so there's enough seats, and it also has the TV where we'll watch the DVD cut scenes. I don't really have a budget, but I don't want to spend a massive amount, neither do I want to have to spend a ridiculous amount of time decorating and undecorating the room because I want to inconvenience my housemates as little as possible. I don't mind getting creative and making some stuff myself, however. I can bake and I'm not too bad at craft stuff.

Place cards, invites, recipe suggestions and costume suggestions are all included in the box, so whilst any ideas on these things would be great, they may not be as useful to me.

Further info.: I'm in the UK so no non-English store-specific suggestions about where I can buy stuff please. I don't want to buy anything more online if possible, because I don't want to have to use my card.

I know you guys will come up with lots of great suggestions for me, so thanks in advance! Also, I recommend you try out your own murder mystery game (either buy cheap or make up your own), they are lots of fun and fairly unusual, and a great way to socialise whilst actually having something inexpensive to do; once you've got the game, the only other necessary thing is to provide food, and you could always ask the other guests (suspects!) to contribute.
