It is said that most people who die in their sleep die at around 3 am. So you may have more luck in the light!

This seems like it doesn’t make sense, but it does. Thanks to George Romero, the term “zombie” had changed into a pandemic of biological chemical mix-ups and reanimated corpses. While the phenomena in movies are slightly unexplained, this still doesn’t categorize it as supernatural. Before 1968 (Romero’s release of Night Of The Living Dead), people used the term “zombie” to describe slaves who were created by a Haitian voodoo spell. They were soulless because they were created specifically to be a slave. They were missing part of their soul and part of their flesh. This was a part of Caribbean Folklore in Haitian Mythology.

 

“This place is too new to be haunted!”

Don’t discredit paranormal activity based on the age of the place and don’t discredit because there hasn’t been a death on the premises! Something can be haunted no matter how young or old. If a building was built on top of a cemetery or place of significance, you can definitely have paranormal activity. Even being near a cemetery can cause paranormal activity due to spirits passing. Hello, haven’t you seen Paranormal Activity?!

This isn’t entirely true. While some think they are fake, In a recent story from Indian, politicians placed a bounty on vampires that apparently went to village farms and sucked the blood out of cows. This happened in Dharampuri in Tamil Nadu, which then lead to the 2004 “dig up” of a corpse in Romania. You can find out more about these stories here and here.
