Monsters and shape-shifters have always held a special fascination in mythologies, legends, and folklore the world over. These beings are part human but under certain conditions transform into formidable creatures that prey upon humans and animals. Interest in these creatures, vampires among them, remains continually strong, as illustrated by the success of numerous movies and books featuring them. From ancient customs to famous cases of beasts and vampires and their reflections in popular culture, 600 thrilling entries provide definitions, explanations, and lists of suggested further reading. This exciting resource focuses on cross-cultural mythology, folklore, historical cases, and the presence of these creatures in arts, entertainment, and pop culture.
