Have you ever wondered what a vampire’s grave would look like? In the British Isles, one supposed vampire has been dead for over a century, but his grave is still surrounded by chains and concrete.
According to legend, 54-year-old Matthew Halsall died in Castletown, Isle of Man, in 1854. As is customary, parishioners had a wake and drank to his memory. How much they drank is up for debate, but things definitely took a turn for the bizarre.
As Halsall’s friends and family attended his wake, they heard a loud groan coming from inside his coffin. Immediately, they rushed to open the casket, believing that he might still be alive.
Sadly, Halsall was still as dead as ever. The logical next step? Assume he’s a vampire and put a stake through his heart, of course!
After Halsall was buried, his grave was covered with a thick slab of cement. If that wasn’t enough to keep the “vampire” from rising from the dead, parishioners also surrounded the grave site with chains, which locals believed deterred supernatural spirits.
