Groac’h

The Groac’h is believed to be protecting a great deal of treasure that often caught the interest of greedy men.  But those treasures are almost impossible to find since the Groac’h is said to protect it with its life.  The men who dare to seek for her treasure would be lured by the beauty of the maiden, if a man lets his guard down; the groac’h would immediately attack him and drained him of his blood.

They are not drunk, but they are intoxicated. This seems to be the findings of the authorities to some of the incident that includes a rampaging naked psycho in Florida.
The first incident happened in February 4, 2014, when the authorities were attacked by a person who is in some state of delirium.  The suspect attacked them with a clock with sharp things protruding on it.  It took them 10 minutes before they were able to apprehend him.
A 15 year old boy called the help of the police when a neighbor named Conrad Hooper, 17 years old showed up in his house naked and started attacking him.  When the authorities arrived at the scene, they discovered Hooper inside the house breaking random stuff and shouting stuff like 1234, grandma, girlfriend, 5678.  The police had to use everything they got including a police dog which Hooper started to punch in the face.  He even tried to pluck out the eye of the dog.  He then usef the clock to attack the officers and was able to break one of the arms o…

The case of a Serbian vampire that was exhumed three times was written in the book of Alan Dundes, “The Vampire-A casebook” which was published on 1998.  Milos Rakovic, the suspected Serbian vampire who died of a sudden death.
By August of 1836, the villagers started to speculate that Milos Rakovic is a vampire.   They stormed the cemetery and exhumed the body without the authorization of the church.  The villagers decided not to get the approval of the authorities and the church since they will disapprove the exhumation anyway.   On the first time they unearthed the corpse, they examined it with any manifestation of vampire.  They quickly reburied it after that.
Jovan Obrenovic told her younger brother named Prince Milos Obrenovic (he was the prince during the Takovo uprising) that the villagers are suspecting that Milos Rakovic who died on the feast is a vampire and that the villagers already exhumed the body without a prior notice of the church.  Jovan and his brother went to the chu…

K’uei

K’uei a vampire revenant in the Chinese lore is depicted as a transparent and dark human with black eyes and dark hair.   Surprisingly it poses a striking similarity to the phantom of the West, i.e. Springman, Rooftop Mad Man, Spring-heeled Jack etc.  But compared to those phantoms that appeared all of a sudden, the K’uei is said to be created when the P’O of someone refuses to leave his body since he cannot accept his fate.  It’s either he lived a dishonest life or a life full of regrets, or there is also a possibility that he committed suicide.
There are also certain events that could lead someone in becoming a K’uei.  One is if the person was not given proper funeral rites and was not properly mourned, another is if the corpse was hit by a direct sunlight and last would be if a cat jumped over a corpse.  But in these events, the person will live the evil life of the others and become a k’uei.
K’uei is described as a nimble and smart creature.  They prefer to be left alone and would n…

Damarchus

In the year 400 B.C. in Ancient Greeks, there lived a boxer named Damarchus who was said to shape shifted in the form of a wolf for nine years before he was able to revert back to his original human form.
The account of Damarchus can be found in the works of Pausanias “Description of Greeks.”  He said:
 "As to the boxer, by name Damarchus, an Arcadian of Parrhasia, I cannot believe (except, of course, his Olympic victory) what romancers say about him, how he changed his shape into that of a wolf at the sacrifice of Lycaean (Wolf) Zeus, and how nine years after he became a man again. Nor do I think that the Arcadians either record this of him, otherwise it would have been recorded as well in the inscription at Olympia, which runs:-- This statue was dedicated by Damarchus, son of Dinytas'ss, Parrhasian by birth from Arcadia."
The description of Damarchus in the work of Pausanias is a mere two sentence long, but it has helped some of the enthusiast to trace the origin of the w…

WereTigers

Around Asia, the idea of a man changing into a wolf is not that popular to the culture, but shape shifting in a form of other animals is quite well known.  A fox (which is common in the legend of Japan and South Korea), Bird (Southeast Asia) or a Tiger.  The legend of a human taking the appearance of a tiger is part of the lore of India and China.
Unlike the werewolves, the weretigers are not dependent on the moon.  People who have this ability do not need lunar intervention and can transform at their own will.  In China, weretigers are known to be a vicious and violent creature that terrorize human while in some South East Asian countries especially Indonesia and Malaysia they are pictured out as a calm and not violent, unless of course provoked and in times that they cannot search food.
Based on the legends, there are many ways on how one can achieve the power of the weretigers.  One is the cause of death, they believe when a person was killed by a tiger, that person turned into a pha…

The Case of Mrs. Gehrke

There was a vampire incident that happened in Pniewo, a district in Prussia.  It concerns the wife of a forest keeper named Gehrke.  One day, the wife of the forester died for unknown reason at around February of 1870.  They buried her at the Biechowo cemetery.  Soon after she died, Gehrke and the children also became sick.  Since the belief on the undead creature is strong in that region, the villagers thought that his wife might be a vampire.  They believe that the wife is missing her husband and children and wanted to drag them into the grave.
The brother of the forester was alarmed.  He held an emergency meeting together with the other men of the villagers and they decided to open up the grave and see if there are any signs of vampirism.  At first they were planning to place flaxseed on the corpse as a way to repel the undead manifestation.  But when they opened up the casket and saw that the corpse has reddish cheeks, they immediately decided to decapitate her head.  They hack her…

Lester Harrison

It seems that a conviction is not enough to stop a killer from committing a murder, which is the case of Lester Harrison.  While Lester was behind his prison cell in Menard, he attacked and killed a fellow inmate.  Lester Harrison was at that time serving his 5-10 years sentence for an armed robbery in Chicago.  He was declared unfit for a trial due to the murder of a fellow inmate and was admitted in a state hospital.  He would be later given a parole and commit other petty crimes which include indecent exposure, attempted robbery etc.
He was declared to be competent for a trial on robbery and was sentenced to 8 months imprisonment.  While he was being held responsible for the petty crimes, no one knew that he is the one to blame for the series of murder that happened around the area of downtown Chicago.
First victim of the serial killer is Agnes Lehman; her body was found on the morning of July 11, 1970.  There were signs that he was beaten to death on the night of July 10.  A shoe wa…

Civateteo is a woman who died of giving birth, she returned from the dead to take revenge on kids by infecting them with a polio disease and eventually killing them.  Incidentally there is also a part of the Aztec Mythology that is similar to Civateteo and her name is somehow similar to her, Cihuateteo in Aztec would refer to the spirit of a woman who died from delivering her child.

Masan and Masani

Masan is a male Indian vampire and Masani is a female Indian vampire.  There is not much similar about these two vampires other than their name.  One of them dwells on the cemetery and haunts that place and one victimized those who would cross its shadow.
The Masani can only hunt on the grave yard; some says that her power is limited on that area while other says that her spirit is bound to stay in that place.  She’s always depicted as being black, either by the clothes she wear or her complexion.  Some stories states that her dark complexion is due to the ashes of the pyre.  She only attacks those who accidentally passed the graveyard where she haunts during the night.  Though it is not well explained how the daylight could affects her, it seems that this vampire like most of them is a nocturnal specie.
The Masan is a male vampire who is believed to take the appearance of a child.  It is not clear whether he shaped shifted into a kid or he is a kid.  What clear though is he loves to p…

Of all the vampire creatures known to mankind, the invunche is said to be the most pitiable.  The Invunche can be found in the legends of Chile.  The witch will kidnap the first born son of a family while he is still a baby and take him back to her sanctuary.  The witch is believed to live in a place which can only be accessed using an underground lake.  The witch would then twist the leg of the infant and put it over the back of the baby causing it to break in the process.  The other legs together with the arms hands and feet are also broken and placed in an unnatural position.
A hole would also be cut on the right shoulder of the baby making it looked like that an arm is growing on the back of the infant.  The head of the infant was also gradually twisted overtime.  After the long process of dismantling the body of the child the infant would start to grow hair all over its body.  The tongue of the baby would also be cut in the middle making it resemble the tongue of the snake.  The w…

Yeenaaldlooshii

Yeenaaldlooshii literally means skinwalkers; they were originally a group of powerful magicians who were feared by the ancient American tribe that allegedly had an encounter with them.  They have the ability to take the form of any animals but mostly, they allegedly transform into a wolf.   Aside from taking the form of an animal they are also known to steal the identity of an individual by copying his appearance.
The subject of Yeenaaldlooshii is still popular in the southern part of U.S.A. and the northern part of Mexico.  But the matter of this is discussed in a secretive manner since they believe that most of the powerful Yeenaaldlooshi still lurks in that part of the world.  Thank Goodness, the Yeenaaldlooshi prefers to maintain its anonymity.
The skinwalkers are also known to be a part of a tribe called “Anasazi” meaning ancient enemy. This ancient tribe in known to be hunted by the other tribes and was completely wiped out. Due to the fearsome ability they possess, other tribes w…

Operation:Spellbinder

It was during the year 1964, when the head of the MKSEARCH are developing the perfect truth serum to create the perfect “Manchurian Candidate”.  The experiment is like a continuation of the works of Dr. Cameron and Dr. Gottlieb, who were the head of the MK-ULTRA.  But for them to perfect the drug, they would have to use a human guinea pig.  The agency would pick someone who wouldn’t create a suspicion in case they disappeared.
The mind control project reached its climax when Richard Helms assumed the post as the Director for CIA on the 30th of June 1966.  During this time, they would no longer need to search for their test subjects.  VietCong prisoners would be delivered right in front of them when they need one.  All POW (Prisoners of War) that were used as a test subject was declared MIA or killed.
The project named Operation: Spellbinder is created to find the perfect sleepwalking assassin.  Those assassins would be assigned to kill high profile figure while in a state of tranquility…

Giovanni Aldini

Giovanni Aldini was born in the year 1762 and at a young age of 36, he already acquired the position as a professor of Physics in the University of Bologna located in Northern Italy.  Though others may regard him as a very humble professor, he was also involved in a very bizarre experiment.  Galvanism is derived from the uncle of Giovanni Aldini named Luigi Galvani who experimented on dead frogs.  Galvani through this process discovered that by giving an ample amount of electric current to the dead frog, it was able to twitch and create movement as if it was still alive.
Aldini was greatly influenced by this experiment of his uncle.  He took the experiment of Galvani into a step higher, an experiment that has gone very controversial during his time due to the violation of the corpses.
Aldini was however unable to bring the dead back into life but he was able to make the dead move.  It is not a form of reanimating the corpse but rather animating the corpse.  He followed the same process …

Vjesci

A Vjesci is a type of vampire in the Polish lore.  Based on the old stories, a person can determine if he is destined to become a vjesci during the time of his birth.  A newborn baby who was said to have a cowl in his head will become a vjesci.  In order to prevent a child from turning into a vampire, the cowl is removed.  They set it aside for some time and let it dry, after a few days it is grinded down and fed to the owner on his 7th birthday.  A vjesci unlike any vampire appears to be normal and can easily associate himself within the community.
The person who will become a vjesci is believed to refuse to take the sacrament before his death.  There are also some accounts that said that the creature didn’t really die but just rise up from his grave as a vampire.
Also stated on the legends is the method to stop the attack of this creature.   The story reminds the people that they should receive the Eucharist of the church before they die.  Relatives must also ensure that soil is dispe…

Sirhan Sirhan, a Culprit or a Zombified Victim?

When Sirhan Sirhan fired all the eight bullets of his revolver, Senator Robert Kennedy was already dead, but Sirhan Sirhan seems to be in a state of trance.  Was he not able to comprehend the magnitude of the crime that he committed or was he under the zombification process?
George Plimpton was one of those inside the venue that tried to disarm Sirhan Sirhan.  But he cannot forget the look in the eye of the killer.  His eyes are so peaceful like he is in a state of tranquility.  Other guest who was inside the event also testified to the account that it seems Sirhan Sirhan has been drugged or hypnotized.
When he was done on the inquest procedure in the police station, he apparently asked the authority to bring him a copy of the book of Madame Helena Blavatsky, the “Secret Doctrine”.  As we all know Madame Helena Blavatsky is the author of Isis Unveiled, he also discussed paranormal stuff such as psychic vampirism.
On 1967, Sirhan Sirhan was hired as a part timer on an occult bookstore.  H…
