vampires are beings who subsist by feeding on the life essence (generally in the form of blood) of living creatures. although vampiric entities have been recorded in many cultures, the term vampire was not popularized until the early 18th century, after an influx of vampire superstition into western europe from areas where vampire legends were frequent. this increased level of vampire superstition in europe led to mass hysteria and in some cases resulted in corpses actually being staked and people being accused of vampirism.
