Vampires are said to feed on the essence of life by sucking and drinking on blood of living creatures as well as humans. Vampirism and vampire stories have existed for thousands of years. Ancient cultures and civilizations like Mesopotamian, Greek, Romans and many others told stories and legends about demons and devils which paved way to the existence of vampire folklores most notably in medieval Europe. Vampire superstitions in Europe became very popular because of the many vampire legends frequently told at that time to a point that some are even accused of being one and dealt with by executions.
The most popular image of a vampire today is one that resembles a normal human usually when not feeding on blood. One who is afraid of the sunlight and having two fangs to bite on living beings. Some are even portrayed to have magical powers and are capable of shapeshifting, flight and even immortality. Though many vampires are depicted as humans, some cultures describes vampires to be terrifying creatures and monsters that resembles devils, ghouls, monstrous bats or zombies.
