Quote:

Interestingly, in the haitian example, salt was often fatal to the zombie. In some cases salt is also used as a protection against witches and possibly vampires. I seem to recall(although I might be mistaken... age and memory...) that Golems are also not supposed to taste salt.




My understanding of the salt thoery with zombies was that salt would release them from enslavement, not kill them. But my knowledge of zombie minutiae is pathetic.

So, can we assume that werewolves, vamps and zombies are the result of a mutation of a common virus? Something like various types of herpes, or chicken pox/shingles?

That's the more common way to get these creatures but i nsome cases there have been supernatural forms as with Voodoo zombies. So it depends I guess, in those cases though they can probably be saved instead oh having to be killed flat out.

Which would explain similar overwhelming desires in each case to have the sustenance that each would need.

Werewolves go into a feral rage or hunger. Vampires, if starved for too long, go into a bloodlust which is closely related. And zombies simply constantly crave flesh, brains, what have you. The state of the brain, in each species, would determine the force of will each would possess toward repressing the hunger if they wished to. (Zombies, with little to no brain functions are slaves to the urge, Werewolves kill or attack on instinct with little or no control due to animal mentality with no reasoning capabilities, and Vampires are discriminating in their killing due to higher brain functions still being in tact).

You said it. now which is the most dangerous? I'd say one on one wherewolves becuase of their size, strength claws fangs and aggression, and vampires next becuase of their inteligience and zombies ar dangerous only when there are a bunch of them. If there were wherewolves vs. zombies who do oyu think would take it though in your guy's opinions?

I've always been under the impression that you should throw salt at a vampire because it always has to count the particles. Buying you time to escape or until dawn.

I have heard something similar regarding vampires. I have also heard that they can't cross running water (like a stream).
