Vampire Mythology


Did you know vampire myths go way back? We’re talking ancient Mesopotamia with tales of Lilitu, a blood-sucking demon, and the Ancient Greeks’ Empusa, who loved to feast on blood. These early stories set the stage for the vampires we know and love (or fear) today.

Medieval Transformations

Fast forward to the Middle Ages, and vampire lore got even spookier. Think Eastern European legends with undead creatures rising from their graves to haunt the living. These creepy tales are the ancestors of our modern myths.

Modern Interpretations

Enter Bram Stoker’s Dracula (1897), and vampires became a permanent fixture in pop culture. This classic novel gave us many of the vampire tropes we see in books, movies, and TV shows today. For more on vampire history, check out this detailed history of vampire legends.
