Create Vampires: Factual Basis For VampiresEdit
People have offered factual explanations for the "un-dead," probably the reasons for vampires found mostly in folklore.
Folk-stories were based on people buried alive, then mistaken for un-dead creatures when they clawed and crawled their way from their premature graves.
The appearance of actual people, mistaken for dead, crawling from graves, started warnings that evolved into what we call the vampire stories and folklore that influences our modern popular culture.
