    undead is a different subject, and is one that is perhaps more documented.

    National Geographic: "Vampire of Venice" Unmasked: Plague Victim & Witch?

    After digging them up, the key seems to be removing the brick or stone from their mouth first.

    A female "vampire" unearthed in a mass grave near Venice, Italy, may have been accused of wearing another evil hat: a witch's.

    The 16th-century woman was discovered among medieval plague victims in 2006. Her jaw had been forced open by a brick—an exorcism technique used on suspected vampires in Europe at the time.

    After removing the brick, I assume some sort of blood would need to be dripped into their month. Keeping a bit of the soil they were buried in is always a prudent precaution.

    It is not a subject I have a lot of experience with, but, given the fact that they are skeletal by now, and possibly blind, the same technique might work with Venetian blinds.

    So tell me, is there a brick or witches hat near your Venetian blinds?
