Vampires we know and love #5: Abchanchu

Think vampires are all the same? Think again! Vampires come in more flavors than Baskin-Robbins ice cream. So, this special DotW feature, Vampires we know and love, spotlights different kinds of bloodsucking fiends from around the world.


Suppose you happen to be traveling through Bolivia and you find an old man who seems to have lost his way. He looks kind and harmless. Should you help him?

Don’t do it. In this case, being a good Samaritan might cost you your O-Negative. Oh sure, he’s a dottering old guy now, but just wait until you escort him back him. Then it’s all with the ‘I want to suck your blood.’

Best to just keep walking. If possible, with an amulet that has a drop of garlic oil in it.
