Brahmaparusha - 
A vampire from Northern Indian folklore, the Brahmaparusha is an extremely violent vampire who takes pride in its kills.  It is usually seen wearing intestines on its head and carrying a skull that it uses as a cup to drink blood from. A Brahmaparusha is created by a demon possessing the corpse of a human being. It’s also believed that a person can be reincarnated as a Brahmaparusha if they were evil in their previous life. 
Brahmaparusha attacks are very violent and bloody. They bite down on their victim’s neck until blood starts to pour out and then it fills its skull cup with the blood to drink it. Once the body is drained of blood, the vampire smashes the victim’s head and eats their brains. Finally it rips out their intestines and wears them around its neck or on its head as a trophy. It will then dance around what is left of the corpse. It takes many victims to fill a Brahmaparusha. 
There is no way to protect yourself against a Brahmaparusha vampire. The only thing you can do is run and hide.

Faoladh -
An Irish werewolf, the Faoladh is different from other European werewolves as it is not a monster at all. Unlike other werewolves it is a shapeshifter who can turn into a wolf at will. It is believed that they were pagans who were cursed by St Patrick for refusing to convert to Christianity. A Faoladh looks like a normal wolf. If they are attacked in their wolf form they will still have the tell tale injuries on their human body. If they kill a sheep or cow the blood will still remain on their faces when they turn back into a human. 
Unlike other werewolves, the Faoladh is a good werewolf. It has been known to protect children, wounded men and lost people. They usually live in pairs. They sometimes live as wolves for seven year periods. They can also heal the sick and wounded, and have been known to guide lost strangers to safety.  According to ancient sources, Irish werewolves were even recruited by kings during times of war. Faoladh have the same predatory nature as normal wolves. They will eat farm animals and prey on herds of cattle and sheep for food. 
Faoladh refuse to attack humans. If attacked or surprised while in their wolf form they will simply run away because being injured can cause them to shift back into their more vulnerable human form.

Bhangarh Fort - 
The most haunted place in India, Bhangarh Fort is a palace situated on a hillside near the deserted town of Bhangarh Rajasthan. It was built in 1614 by King Madho Singh. The king got permission from a Guru to build the city of Bhangarh in that location but he was warned that the moment the shadow of the palace touches the Guru or his retreat the city shall be no more. This prophecy came true when one descendant of the king raised the palace to such a height that it cast a shadow on the Guru’s retreat. The town was destroyed and to this day it is believed that when a house is built in the abandoned city its roof will cave in. It’s also said that anyone who stays in the town over night will never return. 
Another legend is that of the Princess of Bhangarh. She was very beautiful and by the age of 18 she was getting marriage offers from nobles. In the same area lived a magician who was well versed in the occult who was in love with the princess. One day the magician saw the princess’ maid in the market. He decided to trick the princess by using black magic to place a love spell on the oil the maid was buying. But the princess had seen the magician enchanting the oil and poured it onto the ground when it was handed to her. As the oil struck the ground it turned into a boulder, which moved forward and crushed the magician. Before dying, the magician cursed the palace and everyone who dwelt in it with death. The next year, the city was attacked and the princess was killed. 
According to legends, there are ghosts haunting Bhangarh fort and that is why entry is prohibited after sunset and before sunrise. Damaging any of the trees near the fort is forbidden and shepherds and wood-cutters are not allowed in the region. Breaking any of these rules is punishable by legal action. Several people have disappeared when they have ventured into the fort at night and several more have died. The ghost of the king is also said to appear at sunrise and sunset. The locals believe that  the Princess of Bhangarh has been reincarnated somewhere else and that the fort is waiting for her return to put an end to the curse.

Shadhavar -
A type of unicorn from Persian folklore, the Shadhavar looks more like a gazelle than a horse. Like all unicorns it has a single horn on its head but the horn of a Shadhavar is unique because it is covered in holes. It is a melancholy animal that stands approximately six feet tall at the shoulder but it is very thin and sickly looking. It has dark patches on its face that run under its eyes which give the appearance of perpetual tears.
The Shadhavar is a carnivorous unicorn that eats both humans and animals. When the wind blows through the holes in its horn it sounds like a flute. The music it plays with its horn is so beautiful that it will attract people and animals to it. Once an animal is near the shadhavar will viciously attack its prey, stabbing them with its horn before devouring them.

Anonymous asked: Hello! Can you tell me what I saw? The first time I saw it was I was around 8 or 9 I was at a hotel in Mississippi with my grandparents and I was awoke in the middle of the night for not apparent reason. I looked over at the bed where my grandmother was sleeping and there was something standing there. It looked bigger than a human and it's body was made up of what looked like tv static. The next time I saw it was at my other grandparents house and I was also woke up by it. Do you know what it is

Hello, and yes I can. It sounds like you have seen a shadow person. They are a type of ghost but unlike other ghosts they can only appear as a dark shape. They are usually seen by people who have woken up in the middle of the night for seemingly no reason. Even if it is very large it is the ghost of a person, they were either tall in life or they are choosing to appear very large. Since the description for the ghost is the same on both occasions it is probably the same ghost, even if it has appeared in two different locations. It’s highly likely that it is linked to your grandparents since it only appears when you are staying with them. They are completely harmless and will just stand there. You have nothing to worry about. I hope I was able to help. 

St Louis Cemetery - 

St Louis Cemetery is the most haunted cemetery in New Orleans. It was opened in 1789 and has connections to voodoo, including having a voodoo priestess buried in it. Though the cemetery has been known for dozens of paranormal events it has three ghosts who are the most prominent and active. 

One of these ghosts is the voodoo priestess Marie Laveau. She sought fame and attention through practicing voodoo magic. When she was alive she attracted a huge following, so much so she ended up with her own cult of worshipers. Marie was buried in an unmarked tomb due to her fame, the authorities did not want to turn the cemetery into a shrine for her followers. Marie Laveau’s ghost in an angry one. Her apparition has been seen in the area of her unmarked tomb. She has also been seen, in a foul mood, storming along the pathways chanting curses at the living. She once slapped a man who was passing the area near her grave. Many believe that death has not stopped her from practicing her black magic. Her ghost has been seen turning into a black crow and a big black dog. Both of these animals have been seen roaming the cemetery on a regular basis. 

The second ghost is called Henry Vignes. He was a seaman, who foolishly trusted his landlady with the papers to his family’s tomb so she could take care of it if he died at sea. When he was at sea she sold the tomb. Henry suddenly died before he could seek justice. There was no tomb to put him in so he was buried in an unmarked grave in the pauper’s field area. Unlike some ghosts Henry looks very much alive when he appears in the cemetery. He can easily be mistaken for a tourist or tour guide. He is tall, dressed in a white shirt and has piercing blue eyes. He is still looking for his family’s tomb. A number of people have been approached by Henry and asked if they know the location of his family tomb. He then walks away and suddenly disappears. He has also been known to tap people on the shoulder and ask them questions about tombs. He will appear at family funerals and ask mourners if there is any room in the tomb for his remains. 

The name of the final ghost is unknown but he has been nicknamed Alphonse. He is a very lonely spirit and, like Henry, he looks like a living person when he appears. He will walk up to a visitor, take their hand into his ice cold hands, and with a big smile, ask for help to go home. He will then start to cry before disappearing. Alphonse has also been seen carrying vases and flowers from other tombs and graves and placing them on his own, perhaps in an attempt to make himself feel better. 

The Beast of Gévaudan -
A man-eating wolf hybrid and rumored werewolf that terrorized the Margeride Mountains region of France between 1764 and 1767. The descriptions of the beast vary, but generally it was said to look like a wolf but it was the size of a calf. It had a large dog-like head with small straight ears, a wide chest, a long tail, and a large mouth filled with sharp teeth. It’s fur was red in colour but its back was streaked with black. 
In three years the beast killed 100 people, including children. In total there was 210 attacks by the beast. Its preferred prey were farmers and shepherds who  watched their livestock alone. Children who wandered into the woods unattended were also attacked by the beast. Victims were often killed by having their throats torn out, and some where found partially eaten. 
Soon terror spread throughout the region and the attacks were occurring so often that the French government used a considerable amount of manpower and money to hunt down the beast, including sending the army and a number of royal huntsmen. Dozens of wolves were killed in the hunt for the beast but the attacks still continued to occur. The beast was eventually killed by a hunter named Jean Chastel who shot the beast with a blessed silver bullet.

Apep -
The personification of darkness and chaos in ancient Egypt, Apep is considered an evil god and in some cases a demon. He appears as a giant snake or serpent. It is also said that he has the ability to turn into a dragon. His snake form is 16 meters long and it has a head made out of flint. He also possesses a hypnotic gaze. 
Apep wants to eat the sun. He is an enemy of the sun god Ra, who battles Apep every day in order for the sun to rise. It’s believed that Apep has managed to get the sun into his mouth several times but he has been defeated before he could swallow it. According to the ancient  Egyptians this is the cause of a solar eclipse. Apep also causes earthquakes due to being trapped in the underworld when he isn’t waiting to eat the sun every morning. 
Apep cannot be destroyed. If he is killed, even by Ra, he will return the next day. It is said that the goddess Bastet once managed to kill him while in the form of a cat by hunting him down with her all seeing eye.
