There's nothing quite like a scary story on Halloween, so we've gathered the seven craziest stories on vampire, werewolves, and witches out there. And the scariest part? They might all be real!
Real Life Vampire
Everyone knows vampires are just in the movies … right? Not according to Bill Schnoebelen, an ex-satanist who claims that after he reached a certain rank in his cult, he became a vampire. He says his vampirism came from going through a ritual that included drinking his satanic master’s blood and staying in a coffin for three days.
After that, Bill claims he could no longer eat food. He could only consume blood, Catholic communion, or people’s energy, which he could steal with a special talisman. But before Sam or Dean Winchester got to him, Bill says he quit being a satanist, became a Chistian, and returned to normal.

Are Werewolves Real?
In Werewolf Occult Origins From Dark Historic Reports & Stories, we explore accounts of real life werewolves going from ancient Greece to the present day. One of the craziest stories is about Peter Stoob, who claimed he made a pact with the devil. Stoob promised malice on men, women, and children in exchange for the gift of being able to turn into a greedy wolf-beast.
The devil agreed and gave Stoob a magic belt that granted his wish. For 25 years, Stoob murdered and ate various victims. It’s even said he ate his own son. In the end, he was put on trial and confessed to everything. Stoob the Werewolf was put to death on October 31st—Halloween.

The Truth Behind The Salem Witch Trials
We’re taught that the Salem Witch Trials were nothing more than mass hysteria. But if you’d heard this story about one of your neighbors, you might think twice before eating those cookies she gave you.
Nobody knows for sure what happened in Salem, but if the stories are to be believed, there was more than meets the eye. A man named Samuel Gray claimed that he saw a strange figure full of light near his child’s cradle. The baby let out a terrible scream, and the figure vanished. The child died soon afterwards. Gray later recognized Bridget Bishop, the first person executed for witchcraft (who he didn’t even know!) from the figure he had seen.
