Vampires

Vampires are obvious, right? But what is a demon? Typically, at Scariest Thing, we collectively thought of scaly little devils with evil grins, three pronged pitch forks and a whole bunch of nothing but trouble going on. Basically before doing any research we concluded that if you die you”ll be forever poked in the privies with a sizzling hot fire dipped poker by little demons that would spit Tabasco sauce and scream high pitched laughter at every evil and menacing act.

But, we certainly learned a thing or two. First off, demons weren’t originally considered evil. In Greek folklore they were considered spiritual beings (subtract spikes and add fluffy white wings). Over time, Christianity developed demonology and ultimately made demons into “unclean spirits”. I know what you”re thinking, “here we go with the propaganda.” I know, me too (thanks Christianity for all the positivity you bring to our world). What”s interesting, is that the more you research demons the more you”ll find that it”s more uncommon for them to be “evil” and more common for them to be symbolic of important lessons such as morality and philosophic principles. In fact, εὐδαιμονία, literally “good-spiritedness”, is a term for “happiness”. It”s Greek, we can”t pronounce it either, don”t worry.

Ok, enough with chit chat! Here are some pictures:

Alright, so we”re lazy. We classified Demons & Vampires together. But we have two reasons that we think you”ll agree with. #1 – Both demons and vampires do the majority of their scary activity during the evening when it is dark, especially vampires. #2 – Both aren’t really too scary in and of themselves (subjective, I know, I know) but both are commonly considered mysterious and imaginative. Like, a demon could be hilarious and a vampire could be damn sexy. Maybe we should stop procrastinating and give them their own pages.
