Vampyre Lore

Traditionally, vampires are undead mythological or folkloric beings who feed by draining and consuming the blood of human victims.

The term was popularized in the early 18th century, after an influx of vampire folklore from the Balkans and Eastern Europe into Western European culture, although vampiric entities have been recorded in most cultures.

This collection includes tales from around the world. Contributions are always welcome.

How could someone appear to have been the victim of a vampire attack? Science, in time, came back with answers that may surprise you.Anemia
A million fancies strike you when you hear the name: Nosferatu!N O S F E R A T Udoes not die!What do you expect of the first showing of this great work?Aren't you afraid? - Men must die. But legend has it that a vampire, Nosferatu, 'der Untote' (the Undead), lives on men's blood! You want to see a symphony of horror? You may expect more. Be careful. Nosferatu is not just fun, not something to be taken lightly. Once more: beware.- Publicity for Nosferatu in the German magazine Buhne und Film, 1922
