Also known as nosferatu or blood-suckers, vampires are supernatural gothic beings that suck the blood from living creatures. Vampires are commonly referred to as “the undead” because they are said to be real reanimated corpses – not alive, but not yet dead. It is a common myth that vampires sleep in coffins during the daytime, modern day vampires would find this almost impossible.
It is also said that they cannot walk in the light of day or they will burn and die. Originally a part of folklore, vampires are now common in horror stories, movies, and even vampire books.
Around the world, vampires go by a number of different names, all which make the blood of humans run cold. In Eastern European countries, they’re known as Incubus, in Mexico, as Tlahuelpuchi, the Philipines call them Aswang, Portugal calls vampires the Bruxa or the Lobishomen, and Serbians call them Vampyres. There’s even a word in Latin for vampire – Strix. Every country has their own word for this undead creature. And every country has its own mythology about them too.
Here are some basic of the basic myths and facts about vampires: 1.) It is said that they are immortal creatures – meaning they live forever and do not die. 2.) They subsist on blood – of any creature, although they do prefer humans. 3.) They can potentially be destroyed, although the how of that is not quite known for sure…some of the more common methods include stake through the heart, and exposure to the sun.
