The History Channel : The History Of Werewolves The Real Wolfman , The History Of Vampires Vampire Secrets : Halloween 2 Pack

The History Channel : The History Of Werewolves The Real Wolfman , The History Of Vampires Vampire Secrets : Halloween

In the mid 1700s, a mysterious beast viciously attacked and killed 102 villagers in the French village of Gevaudan. The victims, mostly women and children, were mauled and decapitated, their naked bodies all bearing the bite marks of a non-human creature. The killings mark the largest number of alleged werewolf attacks in history and are the basis of the Hollywood Wolfman legend. Venture deep into the mythology and folklore of werewolves with renowned cryptozoologist Ken Gerhardt and veteran criminal profiler George Deuchar as they investigate this reviled creature that brutally kills when the moon is full. In their investigation, they uncover intriguing paranormal transformations, diseases that make men look and act like animals, strange but true stories of children raised by wolves and, eventually, the dark side of human nature in the horrific truth behind the Gevaudan werewolf attacks./At the mention of the word "vampire," images of bloody fangs, dark capes, and a man with a hideous, spooky laugh immediately come to mind. These conventional images, born from countless vampire films over the years, are most commonly associated with Irish writer Bram Stoker and his iconic 1897 novel Dracula. However, despite the popularity and influence of this celebrated nineteenth-century tome, the vampire myth dates back more than 1,000 years, long before Stoker ever put pen to paper. In this fascinating journey through time, History® uncovers the ancient folkloric origins of blood-craving creatures from beyond the grave. Learn how the vampire myth is strongly rooted in Eastern European lore, but how it has also played a prominent role in the ancient cultures of Greece and China. From wooden stakes to garlic apotropes to ancient burial rituals, Vampire Secrets explores how this long-standi [read more]

The Fomor Prophecy

The Fomor Prophecy

There was nothing but pressing darkness now... For many centuries it had kept a lonely vigil beside the ruins on that windswept field, bearing its warning for those who came near. With the passage of time nature had taken her revenge on its intrusion; the stone surface became etched and worn by the relentless assault. So much time passed by, as centuries became millennia and the wind and rain from the ocean clawed ceaselessly, attempting to erase the letters carved by those long forgotten. Not that anyone could have understood the ancient Ogham symbols carved in fear.Eventually the ground gave way and it fell heavily onto the soft earth. With the passing years, grass crept gradually over until its burial was complete. There was nothing but pressing darkness now. When Ken Fallon arrived on the wild Aran Island of Inishmore that hot summer morning, all his troubles seemed so far away. The small cottage beside the windswept field was the new start he needed; it was perfection. Unfortunately he was about to discover that he can run from his past but not from his future. Perfection always comes at a price.Unknowingly, he was the key to unlock a prophecy foretold millennia before; The Fomor Prophecy.
