People have done some pretty horrific things to their dearly departed to make sure that they would stay dead.
The most well known method involved spikes and stakes- and unlike the bodice ripping scenes lovingly embraced by modern day Vampire devotees, it seemed that the preferred method was to pry open your jaws and ram a spike or rock into your mouth.
I’ve also heard they also buried some people face down so that in a frantic effort to escape from the grave to feed on their relatives, the Vampire would dig down and starve to death ( again ) in the process.
So in itself, it’s an awful that people were doing these things corpses.
Worse, they were not doing things thing to strangers or monsters that invaded their homes-
they were doing it to the people they knew and had loved.
