A great story of how children reacted to feeling threatened 50 years ago.

"Hundreds of children were marauding between the tombstones and the city was gripped with terror. A vampire had been spotted in the cemetery.
Some of the brave monster-hunters were armed with makeshift weapons and dogs.

Most, though, were armed with nothing more sinister than a fertile imagination, fuelled by the magic of cinema and the wonder of American comics.
This might sound like a scene from Twilight or one of the other vampire films that have been sweeping the box office, but it's actually a Gorbals policeman recalling a night in Glasgow's southern Necropolis 47 years ago.

Teams of hysterical schoolchildren had staked out the graveyard and crypts in the hunt for a truly terrifying figment of collective hysteria.
There was a ghoul in the Gorbals. It had iron teeth. It had taken two boys.

And they were out to get it."

At least it's a true story, unlike most of the tales in this forum.

Actually, the Slavic vampire is often said to have iron teeth and claws, to dig itself from it's grave.  Odd the belief made it's way across the continent...
