I have a better chance of believing that BEC/BEK's exist than Vampires.

A real man loves his wife, and places his family as the most important thing in life. Nothing has brought me more peace and content in life than simply being a good husband and father.

Actually the Vampire legends come from this region of the world. Recently they found an old cemetery and some of the bodies (skeletons actually) had iron spikes driven through them. It was thought that some people came back as "undead" due to dying under mysterious circumstances, and the iron spike was employed to keep the undead person from returning to harm the living.
The people misunderstood the process of decomposition. When they thought a dead person had come back, often the body was exhumed and inspected. They would see fluids such as blood dripping from the corner of the mouth, the body appeared bloated and the finger nails seemed longer. In decomposition, fluids are emitted, the body is bloated not from drinking the blood of the living but from bacteria, and the skin shrinks away from the fingernails giving the appearance of growing. However in their ignorance of such things, they drove spikes into the body just in case.
The vampire story we know of comes from Bram Stoker's "Dracula" a fictional account written using a combination of legend and other folkore of the vampire. Count Dracula was based upon Vlad Dracula, a one time ruthless ruler of the kindom of Wallachia now Romania in modern times.
I always liked Leslie Nielsen in "Dracula, Dead and Loving It" but I have a quirky sense of humour anyhow.

Might as well send garlic-tipped silver bullets and call them good for whatever ails you.
