In the Olonecian region of Russia, the people spread tales of the erestuny.

According the the people of this region, any person, including pious Christians, could become a vampire if a sorcerer entered and took over the body at the moment of death.

The peasant would appear to have recovered, but in fact had become a vampire who would begin to feed on family members.

People in nearby villages would also start to die off mysteriously.
