The Chiang Shih - Jeff Davis



The Chiang Shih is the Chinese version of the vampire. Often called the hopping corpse, The Chinese believed that the monster was blind which could be used to the victim's advantage when attacked. It was also believed that a Taoist monk could attach a strip of yellow paper with a spell written on it to the monsters forehead to keep it from rising again.

So does that mean Vampires are real?
Because they are evident in Western and Eastern cultures?

... Scary!

Love it Jeff!

Nice!
Now I want to delve into other cultures to see what kinds of monsters they have.
