A creature of the lore of Scotland, Nuckelavee is known to be a monster that spread disease and ruin crops.  They usually live in the seas.  The appearance of this creature is somehow similar to a centaur which is a combination of a horse and a rider.  But the nuckelavee is a very disgusting creature, it doesn’t have an outer skin thus his veins and muscles are visible to the naked eye.

They usually leave their home during the night.  They emerge from seas and search for a human prey.  In some instances they would kill or spread plague on the livestock.  They are able to spread sickness by their breath.  Legends say that their breath is too toxic that they can kill livestock or human.

These creatures, though living in seas are scared of salt and iron.  However one has to know that they are also scared of fresh water.  If one is being pursued by a nuckelavee and managed to stumble upon a fresh water stream, the nuckelavee would stop chasing him if he managed to cross that stream.

Other than that, the only powerful creature that can stop a Nuckelavee is said to be “The Sea Mother”.  They are said to be the goddess of sea which is a part of the Scottish pagan.  One has to be reminded to not burn kelp if he suspected that a nuckelavee lives nearby.  The smell of the burning kelp is said to drive the creature insane and go into a rampage.

The Moonlight Murders

The Moonlight murders are a series of unsolved murders that happened on a night thus dubbing as “moonlight murders”.  The series of murders happened around Texarkana on 1946 during a span of 10 weeks.  The unknown killer named by the media as “The Phantom killer” or the “Phantom Slayer” is held responsible for 8 attacks killing 5 of them.  The crimes happened during the weekends that started on February 22, 1946-May 3, 1946.  The killer always attack late at night.

The first two victims were Jimmy Hollis and Mary Jeanne Larey at around 11:55 pm, February 22.  The two were attacked while their car is on park in a place known as lover’s lane.  The couple claimed that they arrived on the scene at around 11:45 and after a mere 10 minutes, a stranger approached them and flashed a flashlight.  They thought it was a policeman but on a closer look they saw a man wearing a white hood on his face with holes that were cut out on its eyes and mouth area.  The man ordered them to get out of the car while holding pistol against them.  Larey and Hollis were able to survive the horrifying attack.  The local media immediately reported the incident and the police ruled it as an isolated incident, but the attack was followed on March 24.

Richard L. Griffin and Polly Ann Moore were discovered dead on a Sunday Morning.  The motorist saw their car parked on a lover’s lane called Rich road.  At that time, the motorist thought they were just sleeping.  In March 27, an edition of Texarkana Gazette made an announcement to its readers:
 You Can Help Solve Murders: Sheriff Bill Presley and his deputies have a difficult task ahead of them as they attempt to solve the shocking double murder discovered Sunday morning. Texarkana residents can help in this investigation and at the same time if they are not careful, they can hinder the investigation and cause the officers to spend many hours following blind trails. Persons who have information which might furnish a clue to the identity of the slayer or slayers or which might indicate a motive for the crime should not divulge such information on street corners or at cold drink stands but should immediately make it available to the officers. Do not spread rumors regardless of how much basis for fact there is in them. Do not say 'I heard' or 'they say', because the chances are that the person listening will repeat your information and enlarge upon it. Before long the story grows to such proportions as to necessitate a detailed investigation by the officers, thereby perhaps pulling them off the true trail and sending them up a blind alley. Stick to facts that you know of your own personal knowledge and relay those facts as quickly as possible to the officers.

On the early Sunday of April 14, Paul Martin and Betty Jo Booker were found dead.  The incident was followed with the death of Virgil Starks and the attack to Katie Starks who managed to survive.  The incident gained fame as it caught the interest of numbers of local newspaper.  The killer was described as 6 feet tall and wearing a mask to conceal his face.

Matthew Hardman

Matthew Hardman is known as a quiet man by those who knew him and constantly stays at home.  But that belief changed when he committed to a vampiric crime that involves Mabel Leyshon, 90 years old.

No one suspected him at first because of his quiet nature until he was arrested by the authority.  During his younger years, the teacher always regarded him as a student with a proper behavior.  He is always so behave that he has no history of disciplinary action.  While growing up, his hobby is almost as similar as the hobby of other kids apart from one thing; he started to become obsessed with stuff about vampires.

Hardman has frequently visited Leyshon on his place due to the daily newspaper.  He apparently told her that their place which is full of elderly people is a best place for a vampire.  He said that it wouldn’t bother anyone if someone bit them on the neck and suck their blood since authority would just declare that they died due to heart attack.  He added that killing a pensioner wouldn’t matter at all.

The investigation took notice of his art portfolio which is full of morbid and gory images.  His art piece always involves death, murder, blood etc. 

People still find it hard to believe and could just assume what happened to quiet guy and what pushes him to killing an old lady and drinking a blood in a vampiric ritual style.  The heart of the 90-year old woman was cut out believing it would turn him into one of the creatures that he is so obsessed with.

Matthew Hardman was found guilty as the DNA of Mrs. Leyshon matched the blood on the knife found inside the Hardman’s house.  He was sentenced to spend the rest of his life inside the prison.

Konrad Von Marburg

Konrad Von Marburg, an Inquisitor from Germany ordered witches to be burned to a stake for worshipping Satan and for supposedly creating diabolical creatures.  Konrad is known to be well educated who possibly received an education from a university.  He is also known for his strong belief on the teachings of the church.

But during his work as a spiritual detector, he is known to be unfair who easily believes in every accusation made in an individual.  Those who were accused would immediately be sought out by his men and would be instantly asked to repel on their sin or else they would be burned at stake.  He was commissioned by the Pope in year 1227 to eradicate heresy totally.  It was said that a panic would occur in the town that Konrad would pass through.

He is known to be sending those proven to be witches on their final resting ground.  He also believed that these witches can raise demonical creature (includes werewolves and other vampiric creatures) and command them in tormenting a whole village.  It was also noted that Konrad was against the family of the feline as he believed that black cat was necessary for performing diabolical rituals. 

Konrad accused Count Henry II of performing satanic rituals.  Henry appealed his case to the group of bishop in Mainz and was proven innocent.  Konrad was unable to accept the verdict of the bishop and demanded them to reverse their verdict.  Eventually Konrad left Mainz and returned to Marburg where he was murdered by a group of knights which were believed to be in service of Henry II.

Konrad died on July 30, 1233.

Robert John Maudsley

Robert John Maudsley is known by his prison mate as “Hannibal the Cannibal” after a famous fictional character of the movie Silence of the Lambs.  He was sent to prison after stabbing and strangling his own uncle.  In the 25 years of his life inside the prison he was able to kill 3 prison mates.  He cut one of the victims head open and claimed that he love the sight of the blood.

When he was sent to Broadmoor, he attacked David Francis in the year 1977 and sadistically tortured him for nine hours.  After murdering his fellow inmate, he held David Francis body to the prison staff who were bargaining for the life of Francis.

He was then taken to the high-security prison; he stabbed two prisoners to death using a homemade knife in 1979.  The chief of the prison confined him into a solitary confinement, and then was later moved to a cell that is specially constructed just for him.  The Home Secretary even made a recommendation that Maudsley should never be set free.

Maudley is one of the 12 kids and spent most of his childhood days in an orphanage.  He said that he love staying at the orphanage, he found it conducive and comfortable compared to their house wherein he lived with his parents.  But his parents took him back when he was 8 years old.  He suffered a regular beating on the hands of his parents and was later rescued by the social services.

When he turned as a teenager, he confessed that he would constantly be suffering sexual abuse in the hands of an older man, which develop his hatred and began his abuse on drugs.  The series of his gruesome crimes were neglected by the authorities until the national press took an interest on his case.  The local newspaper referred to him as “The Real Hannibal Lecter” which sensationalized the news.

One of the most baffling cases of disappearing person

One of the strangest cases of a missing person would be of an elderly couple in Ireland named Conor and Sheila Dwyer.  The couple just mysteriously disappeared after hearing a mass at the St. Patrick Church on the 30th of April, 1991.

After the close relatives has not heard about the couple for a week, Sheila’s sister decided to pay them a visit on May 18.  But to her dismay, no one was answering their door, so she decided to alert the police about the matter.  Hours later, the police arrived and broke down the door of the couple.  Unfortunately the couple is nowhere to be found.

Their vehicle which is a Toyota Cressida was also nowhere to be seen.  There were no signs of foul play inside their house, all their valuables remain intact.  No traces of forced entry or struggle were found by the authorities.  Their clothing and glasses are also inside the house together with their passport.

Upon further investigation, the authorities found out that this is not the first time that Conor disappeared for a number of years during the 1980s.  They found out that he eventually returned without offering any reason behind his disappearance.  More than 20 years has passed but the case is still unresolved and the authorities were unable to find a lead about their case.

Morbach Monster

The Morbach monster is a legend of the Werewolf that terrorized the area of Wittlich, Germany.  A stowaway from the Napoleon’s Army named Thomas Johannes Baptist Schwytzer is planning to go home to his hometown in Alsace.  He was with a group of Russians who were also a deserter.   By the time that they pass to Wittlich, they saw an old farm house and decided to take whatever they want.  While they were stealing stuff from the old farm house, they were discovered by the farmer and his son.  The deserters murdered both of them.

The wife saw how the deserters mutilated the dead body of her son and husband.  She allegedly cursed those people saying that every full moon, they will take the form of a vicious wolf.  Schwytzer decided to kill the wife by smashing her skull.

The curse allegedly worked on Schwytzer.  He became a rabid murderer who committed killing for his pleasure.  He would rape, steal and kill anytime he wants.  Schwytzer eventually left the company of the Russian men who have had enough of his wicked ways.  He then joined an army of bandits.  But eventually this group of men would also leave him for his wrong doings.

After some time, the legend of a wolfman who prey on cattle and human during the night spread all over the city.  There were accounts of men being brutally killed by the savage beast. 

On one night, Schwytzer saw the beautiful maiden named Elizabeth Beirle. Elizabeth was the daughter of a farmer.  He raped Elizabeth Beirle but he allowed her to survive.  After a few days, Schwytzer was spotted on the deep woods by the villagers who took him for a werewolf.  They chased him up to the village of Morbach where they managed to kill him.  She was buried to a shrine where a candle was lit.  The villagers believe that as long as the candle is burning, the werewolf would not return to their land.

After nine months, Elizabeth Beirle gave birth to a son who was allegedly the fruit of the sin that Schwytzer committed.  During this day, the descendants of her son were a respectable family from Morbach.  They never exhibited a sign of being a werewolf that was a curse from their ancestor Schwytzer.  Though there was a documented sighting of a Morbach monster on 1988 by an air force group.

Houston Batman

Other region might have the tale of the lochness monster or the Big Foot, but Houston has a legend of its own that can be traced back to 1950s, The Houston Batman. 

18th of June, 1953, 2:30 am, Somewhere in Houston Heights, three neighbors said that they saw something bizarre just a few feet away from their home. After a few moments, the bizarre creature was in the headline of Houston Chronicle.

Hilda Walker, 23 years old and a housewife along with two other neighbors were sitting on their front porch when they saw something that happens to move across the lawn.  One of the witnesses described the incident as an event that is hard to believe.  The creature appears to be a figure of a man standing at around 6 ½ feet tall with wings of a bat attached on its back.  People who saw the creature instantly froze upon seeing it.  One may think about fleeing or shouting but to those who had a glance of the Houston Batman, they were shocked and frozen.

The creature stayed for 30 seconds before the image gradually vanished.  Though the idea at that time of seeing a figure of a man with a bat wings might seem to be new, the flying humanoid has been sighted in numerous occasion even on ancient times.

The creature that visited the Houston Heights on the night of June, 1953 remains a mystery up to this day.

Florencio Roque Fernandez

Around 15 women were said to be the victim of Florencio Roque Fernandez by breaking inside their room and drinking their blood.  Fernandez is a serial killer who reigned during the 1950s and terrorized the area of Monteros.  He was also known as The Argentine Vampire and The Vampire Window.

Florencio Fernandez is said to be suffering from a mental disability.  He is having a hallucination and a delusion that he is indeed a vampire.  He is also known to take great pleasure in seeing blood.  Fernandez was already living in the street during his young age.  His family seems to neglect him due to his can be found at the outskirt of the town to help him cope with his fear of light.

Fernandez usually attacked on the warmth of spring or summers where town folks used to leave their windows open at night and let the cool breeze of night freshen up their rooms.  He would stalk his target for several days and he’ll make sure that she is alone at night.

After making sure that his victim is already asleep, he will immediately beat them.  The victim would wake up shocked about the presence of another man in her room.  He would then bite them usually at the trachea or carotid which resembles the way vampires bit their victims.  He apparently reached orgasm by feeding on the blood of his victim.  After reaching sexual satisfaction, he would let them bleed to death.

He was arrested by the police on the 14th of February 1960 when he was 25 years old.  The perpetrator did not resist the police arrest, at least not until he was brought to sunlight.  He was not held criminally liable to the crime due to his mental state and was ordered to be instated in a mental institution.  Fernandez died years later inside the mental institution.

Creating zombie with electrode implants

It was during April of 1961 when the doctor who was performing an experiment about implanting electrode on the brain of the animals decided that it is definite time to test the experiment on human since the experiment on animals turns out a positive result.  The doctor name Dr. Gottlieb has been perfecting the method on some animals for quite some time.  Unfortunately, the disturbing result of his experiment on 3 Viet-Cong prisoners has leaked out to the public.

The team behind the project flew to Saigon and went to the hospital located in Bien Hoa.  The prisoners during the Vietnam War were already confined on that facility.  The group of agent of Subproject 94 started to place the equipment needed in a secret compound.  Then the team of the neurologist proceeds in implanting the small electrode to the brains of the VietCong prisoners.

They provided an ample amount of time for the healing of the surgical wounds caused by the implant.  After that, they were given lethal weapons such as knives and an electric simulation was run through their brain.  The experiment was done to see if the electrodes inside their brain could provoke them in killing each other.  They were doing this method in order to create an assassin that would not be able to divulge any information and would stay loyal to the one controlling him. 

After a week of running electrical simulation to their brain, the prisoners refused to kill each other.  The people behind this project ordered them to be assassinated and their bodies were burned.

This quest for creating a perfect zombie assassin started on 1961.  One can only think that they have already been successful in creating those types of zombie since it is already 2016.  Could Sirhan Sirhan be one of the victims of these mad scientists?

David Paul Brown

David Paul brown is accused of murdering and feeding on the flesh of Zack Ramsay, he even served the remaining flesh to his neighbors including the families of the child.  He was sentenced to serve 130 years of life imprisonment for numerous counts of child abduction, sexual assault and aggravated assault with no chance of parole.

David Paul Brown would impersonate a policeman and assault kids.   In 1977, he was arrested and sentenced to 20 years of imprisonment for kidnapping and attempting to murder two boys.  While Brown was trying to strangle one of the kids, the other one managed to escape and asked for help.

In 1999, he was again arrested for impersonating a police.  After a thorough search conducted by the police in his house, they found several pictures of children, and a bone that is said to belong to unknown young boy.  He was then charged for kidnapping and as well as sexual assault for three boys.

Biochip Implants

1950-1960 started the eerie technology on mind manipulation and control.  That time they were using electrical impulse being implanted in the brain of humans and animals.  Later they saw that mind-control would be the future of war thus they focus in discovering new ways on how to manipulate the way of thinking of one person.

During the 1980’s a former Medical Officer of Finland claimed that a strange object inside the brain has been showing on the X-Ray.  Rauni-Leena Luukanen-Kilde claimed that the object is about 1 cm. long.  Then after a few years, the implant became smaller, this time it is about the size of a grain.   Luukanen-Kilde claimed that the mysterious object found inside the brain is made up of silicon and on the latter year it was made of gallium arsenide.  On this day, they said that the implants were too small that it became too impossible to remove, others have been undetectable.  These objects can easily be placed at the back of the neck if the person went under an operation.  They could implant these with or without the consent of the patient.

Last 2014, news about the government thinking about using a microchip implant as an ID surfaced the public.  The microchip would also be injected to the newborn babies.  This microchip would serve as an identification number for a person for the rest of his life.

This might be the initial purpose of the microchip, but afterwards this microchip would be connected to a super computer able to record everything they do 24/7.  Their way of thinking could easily be monitored by a computer and the radio frequency could also alter their way of thinking.  This could be the start of creating a whole nation unable to resist the command of their ruler turning each and every one of us into a slave, a modern zombification indeed.  Is there a possibility for us to turn into a zombie-nation?

Eretica is a type of vampire in Russia.  They believe that a person that is practicing a religious heresy would turn into a vampire creature after his or her death.  The witches and others who are practicing craft have a bigger chance to be an Eretica.  They can also become a vampire when one person refused to confess its sin and repent on it before he dies.   The belief about eretica started in the Russia just about the same time that Christianity starts.  They believe that being a bad Christian follower can result in a curse such as this one.  It is commonly used as a threat to those people who refused to act a normal Christian life; it’s just like scaring kids who refused to eat their broccoli with the boogeyman.

Eretica is often a woman who sold her soul to the devil when she was still alive.  He came back as a blood sucking creature cloaked in the identity of an old woman.  Every night all the ereticy (plural of erotica) would gather in one place to perform a sabbat, just like the witches of west usually do.  The Eretica’s presence can be felt during late fall or spring.

The erotica, like the western vampires also sleeps in a coffin.  But not just any type of coffin, they prefer the coffin of those people who live a life of sin.  It is said that anyone who falls into the grave of an eretica would immediately be emaciated and weaken.  What is worse than the situation is that you can get the evil eye.  The evil eye is said to grant someone a slow and very painful death.

There is a different way to destroy an eretica.  Though the staking is the same, you should not thrust her at the chest but at her back and with a stake made out of aspen.  You would then have to burn her remains.  Only then when the attack of the eretica would cease.

Flannan Isle Mystery

The Flannan Isle Mystery is the incident of the mysterious disappearance of 3 light house keeper during the 1900.  They left the equipment needed to survive the hostile condition of the area.
The lighthouse is being operated by three men namely Thomas Marshall, James Ducat and Donald Macathur.  During that time the area is experiencing severe weather condition thus Hesperus (lighthouse tender) was unable to set on a trip toward the island to send the relief.  On December 26, 1900 they were finally able to reach the island due to an improved weather condition.

But on their arrival, they were surprised to see that no one in the island welcomes them and in addition the usual boxes that can be found outside in order to be restocked are not on their original area.  The captain of Hesperus, Jim Harvie set off a distress signal but there seems to be no reply coming from the keeper.

The relief keeper, Joseph Moore discovered that the entrance gate and the main door are both closed.  The beds are still unmade and oddly the clock stopped.  He returned to the landing area to inform the others about his discovery and return to the lighthouse together with a company.  Further investigation showed that all the oil lamps in the location are filled.  The only thing that is misplaced inside is an overturned chair.  Everything seems normal except of course that the three men are missing.

Captain Harvie sent a telegram to the Northern Lighthouse board saying:

A dreadful accident has happened at the Flannans. The three keepers, Ducat, Marshall and the Occasional have disappeared from the Island... The clocks were stopped and other signs indicated that the accident must have happened about a week ago.  No bodies were ever recovered.  In a ballad of Wilfrid Wilson Gibson “Flannan Isle”, the poem states about an uneaten meal on the table which is a sign that the lighthouse keeper were disturbed by something.

Yet, as we crowded through the door,
We only saw a table spread
For dinner, meat, and cheese and bread;
But, all untouched; and no-one there,
As though, when they sat down to eat,
Ere they could even taste,
Alarm had come, and they in haste
Had risen and left the bread and meat,
For at the table head a chair
Lay tumbled on the floor

Greifsweld Werewolves

Based on the old accounts of the History books, during the year 1640, the city of Greifsweld, Germany were overrun with countless of werewolves.  They said that the number of werewolves that time were so large that they occupied the whole city.  A human that would accidentally stumble on that place would be attacked by a pack of werewolves.

It came to a point that a group of students had enough of cowering and hiding at night.  These groups of student formed an alliance that is devoted on ending the torment and terror of the werewolves.  The students give the werewolves a great fight, but in the end their human strength is nothing compared to the supernatural abilities of the werewolves.  Their bodies ended up all over the streets.  Other students who managed to survive retreated and thought of a good plan.

One of the students knew that it is not wise to fight them using their strength.  He suggested that they should all gather every silver wares they could find, buttons, silverwares, goblets, etc. They melted it and create a bullet for their pistols.  The silver bullets reinforced the students and they came back to the place to challenge the group of werewolves once again.  This time the students managed to slaughter all the werewolves and ended up the legend of the lycanthropes of Greifsweld.

Colo Colo

Colo Colo is a vampiric creature that is part of the legend of Brazil.  They are believed to be a small creature that appears to be a mix of some animals.  Like most of the vampire creatures on the South America, Colo Colo tends to feed on their victims while they were asleep.

Believing to be a part lizard, chicken and rat this creature is said to have a long neck.  Depending on the region you are in, the Colo Colo can be covered with fur, scales or feathers.   It may also possess a tail.  This vampiric does not only feed on the victim’s life force it also has a distinct taste for a person’s saliva.

While his victim is asleep, the Colo Colo would proceed in biting the person’s tongue and started to drain his life force as well as his saliva.  He will then drain you of your bodily fluids causing you to die.  There were also some accounts saying that Colo Colo loves the taste of the human brain.

If the victim managed to survive on the 1st attack, the Colo Colo would repeatedly perform the draining until his victim dies.  The victim can be easily identified; they are usually in a trance state and generally look like a zombie.

Also based on the legends, the Colo Colo is not cursed on an incarceration of evil spirit.  The Colo Colo hatched from the eggs of a hen making them similar to cockatrice and the basilisk.  They are also known to be shape shifters.

To defend yourself against the attack of the Colo Colo one should remember that the creature is vulnerable to fire.  It is also easy to tell if a Colo Colo is nearby, sometimes you can hear the cry of a new born baby, even though there is no infant present within the area.  In addition, a foul smell would permeate the air when the creature is near.

Claudia Gaillard

Claudia Gaillard is also known as the Werewolf of Burgundy.  But she was more likely one of the victims of the werewolf hysteria and witch trials during the 15th century.  Between the year 1529-1630, it was documented that at least 300,000 individuals suspected of practicing witchcraft and have the ability to transform into a werewolf were executed in France alone.  Those people accused had to suffer extreme and inhumane torture before they finally admitted to the accusations.

Claudia Gaillard was a young lady then who was accused by his friends, family and neighbours that she is a werewolf.  She was examined by the Inquisitor, Henri Boguet known as one of those Inquisitors that brought many of the alleged witches to their death.  Henri Boguet, believes that the demon taught the witches the knowledge to transform into a werewolf, that is why most werewolves that day suffer the same fate of the witches.

Boguet went to Gaillard house to gather more evidence.  One of the neighbors testified that he witnessed the transformation of Gaillard to a werewolf under a bush.  The testimony of the neighbors became the basis of Boguet to skip the trial and proceed in torturing Gaillard. During her torture, it was claimed that Gaillard never showed a sign of pain and did not even cry, a sign that is telling that she was indeed a witch.  She was then burned to a stake for being a witch.

Helleborus; a Case of Austrian Vampire

This particular vampire case was more of a psychic vampirism.  It was believed to happen in Austria which was documented in the Occult review during the 19th Century.  A young girl was believed to be tricked by his vile uncle into robbing her with all her inheritance.  The uncle disinherited the young woman with all her richness, and pledge that he will give her with a tiny bit amount of money.

Apparently the young girl and her husband are not willing to go down without a fight.  They decided to search for a lawyer to defend their rights against the wicked uncle named Helleborus.  The couple managed to find a lawyer and court sided on the young girl, giving her back everything that her uncle stole from her.  During that time, Helleborus was already weak and suffering from tuberculosis (which is still a mystery during that time).  But despite of his ailing body he swore to the lawyer that he will take his revenge against the man.

Suddenly the lawyer fell ill; he grew weaker and weaker as the unknown sickness drained his energy.  Meanwhile the uncle gains his strength back to the amaze of the people.  As the lawyer died due to unexplained circumstances, Helleborus was in perfect condition and once again out to torment the life of the young girl.

But due to the loss of the host where he can draw the energy, Helleborus strength deteriorated and died after.  But it was said that Helleborus showed no sign of remorse for the vile thing that he has done and felt completely satisfied that his revenge against the lawyer was implemented.

Hantu Langsuir

Hantu Langsuir is a vampire demon of Malaysia that shares some similar traits with the Penanggalan.  The Hantu Langsuir is described as a beautiful woman or a head of a beautiful maiden floating with its entrails and spinal column hanging down on its severed head making it looks like a tail.

People would find it difficult to prevent it from entering their house as the Hantu Langsuir can enter even the small cracks and openings of a house.  It also doesn’t just victimize random people.  The hantu langsuir has a very picky appetite and only wants the blood of a new born boy.  If at times there is no male infant present for him to feed on, it would settle on feeding on a female infant.  While other vampire would love to eat the liver and heart of a victim, this vampire entity loves to eat the entrails of the infants.  It would first drill a tiny hole in the neck of his victim to feed on their blood.

It also occasionally drinks milk from any sources he could find.  It was believed to lick the blood on the sanitary napkin of a girl with a menstrual period.  People believe that if a hantu langsuir licked the blood on the napkin, the owner of that napkin would start to feel weak since the creature is mystically draining her life energy.

If the hantu langsuir was caught in the act of feeding, it can immediately detach its head to its body and escape in a form of an owl. It also lets out a horrifying shriek as it escapes.  For a hantu langsuir to be fully destroyed, both the body and the head need to be incinerated completely.

Others believed that there are women who have the ability to see the hantu langsuir in broad daylight.

Harppe Vampire

Dom Agustin Calmet, who reported the incident about the Lievaba vampire also include the account of the Harppe Vampire in his journal.  But originally it was Chevalier Ricaut, who heard the tale about the Harppe Vampire.  A monk named Sophrones told him while he is studying the Greek Church.

The monk was well known in the local community of Smyrna, where the Vampire of Milos originated.  The account was included in the works of Calmet “Dissertation of Revenants, the Excommunicated, and the Ghosts of Vampires” published in the year 1751.

Harppe was the name of the man who was excommunicated by the church.  On the time of his demise, he was buried in a low lying ground.  After a short time, he reportedly came back to the land of the living as a vampire.  The community wanted to dispose the vampire in the traditional way.  They wanted to disinter the body, decapitate and pour a boiling wine on the body of the suspected vampire.

But the family of the deceased begged to the monk to prevent those things from happening.  The family members were planning to reach Constantinople to get an absolution for their son.  The monk agreed under the agreement that the body of Harppe would be moved inside the church premise.  Starting that day, morning mass was held and prayers throughout the day hoping that the soul of Harppe would be restored.

One day while the church is holding its mass, the attendees reported about the horrifying shriek that they heard inside the coffin.  The monks opened the coffin hoping that they will saw the body of Harppe in perfect condition with no sign of decomposition.  But they were shocked to see the sudden change in the body of Harppe; it has withered and starting to enter the phase of decaying.  It was then that the monks discovered that the parents of Harppe has returned and was granted the absolution for their son.

Dead Columbiana Woman Came Back to Life

A 45-year old woman from Colombiana City walks after two hours of her death.  The woman named Noevia Sernia was pronounced dead and his body was advised to be taken to funeral.  When the funeral attendant was about to inject formaldehyde on the body, the woman responded and moved her arms.  The attendant was in total shock to see that a dead person is moving.

Sernia was admitted at the Comfenalco Clinic.  The official of the clinic started the investigation but they could not produce a better explanation that could explain the bizarre incident.  Even her daughter is totally shocked to hear that her mother was alive.  Apparently her daughter was already in the funeral with her father processing the documents needed for the burial.

Prior to this the woman already suffered two cardiac arrests.  On her last heart attack, Noevia no longer responds to the resuscitation made by the doctor.  The efforts of the medical team on reviving her took almost 15-20 minutes but they are unsuccessful.

The doctors only presented the possible reason why Noevia came back to life.  One is the Lazarus Syndrome; it is the spontaneous return of the circulation after failed attempts of resuscitation.  Another possible reason is that Noevia, responded late on the drug administered to her on reviving her.

But despite of that, the thought of a dead person going back to life is an eerie incident.  The daughter is not sure whether to approach her Mom who just returns from the dead.  Is this a sign of an undead manifestation or just a case of a medical malpractice done by the clinic?

Curse in Armenia

There is a belief in Armenia that any woman who committed a cardinal sin would be punished by a wolf curse.  Those women who will commit murder or adultery would be engulfed by the dark spirit.  The dark spirit would demand the woman to wear a skin of a wolf. The woman would have no power to resist the will of the dark spirit and once she was able to put on the wolf skin, she would be doomed to walk the earth as a wolf for seven years.

Cardinal sin does not refer to violating the Ten Commandments but it refers to the seven deadly sins that were taught by the Catholic Church.   The Seven Deadly Sins includes greed, envy, sloth, gluttony, lust, pride and wrath.

Once the woman takes the appearance of the wolf, she would start acting like a wolf and have the instinct of a wild animal.  Their humanity would be consumed by the spirit of the wolf; it wouldn’t be long before they felt the urge to kill humans.  She would first devour the flesh of her own children.  After having a feast of her children she would turn on the children of her relatives.  After every child of her relatives has been killed, she would start to prey on the innocent child in the village.  She is known to attack during the night and it is useless to lock your door since the door would magically open on her arrival.

After seven years, the woman is allowed to take off the wolf skin and return to her original form.

Doppelsauger is different from doppelganger; they are a vampire of the Hanover in Germany.  They are different from other types of vampires.  Doppelsauger which literally means double sucker has an odd obsession on breast.  The probable cause of that obsession can be related to their habit when they still belong to the human world.  Doppelsauger are believed to be children who started to eat solid food but are still feeding from their mother’s breast.  They turned into a hideous creature after they died.  This child will continue to suck his own breast until it enters a form of decomposition, he will then attack a family member by sucking her breast.  It is said that his victim will undergo a rapid weight loss and eventually die.   It is interesting to note that the only part of this creature that remained fresh is his lips.

They said that there are ways in order to prevent someone from turning into a doppelsauger.  Something made of gold (cross or a coin) that is placed in the gap of the teeth is believed to be a good way to stop him from turning into a creature of the night. Dismembering the corpse head is also taken as a measure by those who believe in doppelsauger. 

Based on the local legends, the doppelsauger return to his home the same way he left the house.  So if one considered on removing the window of the house, the doppelsauger will find it impossible to return to the family’s house.  But it won’t stop him from turning into a blood sucking vampire.  The only way to ensure that he won’t turn into one is to dig his grave and hack his neck with a spade.  At that moment the doppelsauger will release a loud scream and the attack would then cease.

The Case of Bill Ramsey

Bill Ramsey is known as a respectable man and work as a carpenter on the southern part of London.  He has no history of criminal record or violence.  No one predicted that the gentle carpenter would soon exhibit a sign of werewolf activity.

On the night of July 22, 1987, Ramsey went to the police station.  When he was asked by the police why he was there, he said he cannot remember anything but he is sure that he must be apprehended.  The officers laugh thinking that it was just a joke.  Suddenly Bill Ramsey went on a rampage.

He started by snarling and making movement similar to a wild animal.  He was said to lift an officer that is much bigger than him and tossed him.  The other officers came to the rescue and try to subdue Bill Ramsey.  There were about six men who tried to restraint his movement.

The 6 officers dragged him inside the cell where he continued his rampage.  Then he managed to insert his head on the dinner slot where he was trapped.  But that didn’t stop him from gnarling to those who would pass his way trying to bite and claw those who would come near him.

The police call the help of the fire fighter to remove him from the tray slot.  But the fire fighters were afraid to go near him.  They call the help of a doctor to sedate him and calm his nerves.  It supposedly took three times the average dosage for human before it took effect on him.

The next morning, Bill Ramsey woke up and claimed that he had no memory of what happened yesterday.  He was taken to the mental facility where he was first diagnosed with a clinical Lycanthropy, but unlike those who have similar cases, the drug administered to him seems no effect to remove his wolf behavior.

Then his case caught the attention of the Warren family.  Ed and Lorraine Warren was famous demonologist who works in the cases of the Amityville Horror, The Haunting in Connecticut, The Perrons (The Conjuring) and have at least 50 years experience in ghost hunting.  They first went into the detective who investigated the case.  The detective believed that the case of Bill Ramsey concerns something that is beyond the scope of science.  Bill Ramsey was called by some as the Werewolf of Southend”.

The incident of his wolf like behavior started when he was just young, He said that there were times that his parents were scared of him because of the behavior that he is exhibiting.  Ed and Lorraine Warren were convinced that he was not suffering from Clinical Lycanthropy but with a demonic possession of a wolf spirit.  Ed and Lorraine Warren performed an exorcism.   After the exorcism Bill Ramsey no longer experience the same incident.  Other people started calling him as a werewolf-no more.

Francesco-Maria Guazzo

Francesco-Maria Guazzo is a monk who was considered to be a leader on the study of witchcraft, demonology and lycanthropy.  No sufficient information was found on the record regarding his life; the only thing clear is that he was active during the late 16th century.  Montague Summers noted that he passed away in the year 1640’s.

A member of an organization of monk that is based on Milan, Guazzo was assigned to study on the superstitious belief on witches and their connection to the demon.  During the 16th century the Europe is so engulf on the idea of witches and Sabbats and other demonological activities.  It was in the year 1595 when Guazzo started his study about witches and their abilities.

During 1605 where witches trial is happening on Cleves, Guazzo was asked to aid them on their investigation about the alleged witch activity.  It involves a case of a witch hunter named Serene Duke John William.  The accused who was an old man at around the age of 90’s was forced to admit of bewitching the witch hunter.  He confessed that he laid a curse on the witch hunter.  He was sentenced to die by burning at a stake.  But this did not pursue, as the old man slit his throat while he was in the prison.  Some says that this act was done by the devil in order to spare the old man from burning at a stake.

Guazzo spent a favorable amount of time in writing the Handbook of the witches.  In his book he states that the witches are capable of shape shifting in a form of a wolf or lycanthropy, but only as an illusion to deceive the human minds.  He states:

“No one can doubt but that all the arts and metamorphosesby which witches change men into beasts aredeceptive illusions and opposed to all nature. I add thatanyone who holds the contrary opinion is in danger ofAnathema; and in this I am supported by the opinion of S.Augustine, and also by logical reasoning. For a humansoul cannot inform the body of a beast . . .For the devil . . . deceives our senses in various ways.Sometimes he substitutes another body, while the witchesthemselves are absent or hidden somewhere in a secretplace, and himself assumes the body of a wolf formedfrom the air and wrapped around him, and does thoseactions which men think are done by the wretched absentwitch who is asleep.Sometimes, in accordance with his pact, he surrounds awitch with an aerial effigy of a beast, each part of whichfits onto the correspondent part of the witch’s body, headto head, mouth to mouth, belly to belly, foot to foot, andarm to arm; but this only happens when they use certainointments and words . . . 

Guazzo’s Compendium is considered as his best work.  It has been used as a basis on witch trial that happened during the medieval period.
