A werewolf, also known as a lycanthrope (from the Greek ????????p??: ?????, lukos, "wolf", and ?????p??, anthropos, man), is a mythological or folkloric human with the ability to shapeshift into a wolf or an anthropomorphic wolf-like creature, either purposely, by being bitten by another werewolf, or after being placed under a curse. This transformation is often associated with the appearance of the full moon, as popularly noted by the medieval chronicler Gervase of Tilbury, and perhaps in earlier times among the ancient Greeks through the writings of Petronius.
Werewolves are often attributed superhuman strength and senses, far beyond those of both wolves and men. The werewolf is generally held as a European character, although its lore spread through the world in later times. Shape-shifters, similar to werewolves, are common in tales from all over the world, most notably amongst the Native Americans, though most of them involve animal forms other than wolves.
Werewolves are a frequent subject of modern fictional books, although fictional werewolves have been attributed traits distinct from those of original folklore, most notably vulnerability to silver bullets. Werewolves continue to endure in modern culture and fiction, with books, films and television shows cementing the werewolf's stance as a dominant figure in horror.
Legends of vampires and night stalkers have been around for centuries, the mystery of the night creature is eternal. Many cultures believe in the myth of the night stalker and take their precautions against the undead, the creatures who seek blood by night. Each culture has a name for the night creature. The Latin, sanguisuga, the Serbian, vampir, the Greek, Brucolacas, the Slavonic Magyar-vam (blood), Tpir (monster), the English, vampyr, the Polish, Upirs, the Russian, upyr.The African vampire, the Obayifo, hunts the tribes of Africa, it is said to be the spirit form of a male or female practitioner of occult magick, who leave their body at night in search of human blood.First, we should look closely at the history of the werewolf. The myth of a man turning into a beast is one that has been with us since humans first walked upright. There are cave paintings around the world starting about 10000 years BC that show man turning into a beast (and often its a wolf). The first written account of werewolves comes from a region of Greece called Arcadia. It seems that in Arcadia, some of the popular gods at one time were Zeus Lykaios and Apollo Lykeios meaning Wolfish Zeus and Wolfish Apollo. Their worship was quite shamanic. They kept wolves to be sacrificed to wolfish Zeus and his priests often wore wolf skins. The myth goes that Arcadia had a king named Lycaon. The story goes that Lycaon was a worshipper of wolfish Zeus and invites him to dinner one day. He wants to make him something that he has never eaten before, so he serves him up one of his sons. In anger, wolfish Zeus turns Lycaon into a wolf as punishment, and in some accounts, saves the son from death.So the next time you watch a werewolf movie, or you see werewolf costumes at Halloween, you can smile to yourself as you remember the truth behind the werewolf legend and our noble shamanic ancestors. Think on this concept a bit and other monster stereotypes. How is the myth of the vampire similar?
This week on ParaTruth Radio, the ParaTruth boys will be interviewing special guest, Varla Ventura, about her book, "Banshees, Werewolves, Vampires and Other Creatures of the Night". Varla Ventura is the author of "Banshees, Werewolves, Vampires and Other Creatuers of the Night", "Among the Mermaids", "The Book of the Bizaree", and "Beyond Bizarre", and a lover of all things strange, freaky, and terrifying. She is the curator of the Weiser Magical Creatures and Paranormal Parlor series of e-books. Varla lives in a creaky, haunted attic of a Victorian in San Francisco where--when not burning the midnight oil writing about weird news--she can be seen traversing the hidden cemeteries and phantom ships in the greater Bay Area. She will be giving away an autographed copy of the book as well.

The many sequels of "The Howling"
The early werewolf films of the 30s and 40s
Paul Naschy & his werewolf flicks
Also other fun topics!
So join the Shrieking Ghoul at 10 p.m. central time for 30 minutes of your night!
Welcome to Weird Scenes Inside the Goldmine - your essential guide to all things wild and wonderful in the world of cult entertainment!
This week, we'll be talking El Senor Lobo himself, the legendary Jacinto Molina Alvarez, better known by his chosen nom du guerre, Paul Naschy!
Laughed at and ignored in his native Spain, former bodybuilder and professional strongman competitor Naschy pursued his childhood love of Universal horror throughout the 1970's under an oppressive fascist regime, forced to film in both sadly bowlderized "censor" versions for hometown screenings and in far superior "unclothed and bloody" international ones for the rest of us, to little acclaim.
Despite succumbing to a certain notable measure of bitterness over the years, Naschy's pulpy, naive, art brut contemporary homages to such classic horror figures as Dracula, the mummy, mad scientists, hunchbacked manservants and especially the figure of the werewolf have endeared him to generations of "monster kids" who encountered his films on such forums as WOR's Fright Night, as well as the VHS and DVD releases of numerous (though sadly far from all) of his works.
Join us as we talk devil worship, cannibals, psychotic women, mad templars, yetis, zombies, evil gurus, sinister inquisitors, vampires and of course werewolves, only here on Weird Scenes Inside the Goldmine!
hosts "Doc" Savage and Louis Paul
