Monsters - Werewolves, Vampires, and Gargoyles

As my 31 Days of Halloween continue, here is a short post about monsters. I found at least two story ideas as I read through the list. How many can you find?

Monster Trivia & Folklore

  1. Signs of a werewolf are a unibrow, hairy palms, tattoos, and a long middle finger.
  2. Vampires are mythical beings who defy death by sucking the blood of humans.
  3. In 1962, The Count Dracula Society was founded by Dr. Donald A. Reed.
  4. To this day, there are vampire clubs and societies with people claiming to be real vampires.
  5. There really are so-called vampire bats, but they're not from Transylvania. They live in Central and South America and feed on the blood of cattle, horses and birds.
  6. Many people still believe that gargoyles were created by medieval architects and stone carvers to ward off evil spirits.


  1. Interesting. Seems vamps have been around forever. I've read the myth was based on Count Vlad, so maybe that's why it seems so old. Glad we did away with the unibrow for weres - not sexy. LOL

    1. Yes, I've heard the same about Count Vlad as being what the vampire myth was based on. I have more trivia about vampires to post later this month, but it seems these creepy creatures have been around since the dawn of time. LOL.

  2. Vampires is not at all like in the movies or books. Sure, I understand. You are young you have the whole world open to you. You can be anything that you choose if you apply yourself and try hard to work toward that goal. But being a Vampire is not what it seems like. It’s a life full of good, and amazing things. We are as human as you are.. It’s not what you are that counts, But how you choose to be. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable? To have wealth, health, and longevity? contact the Vampires Lord on his Email: Richvampirekindom@gmail.com
