The Undead: Vampire Masterpieces
'Sometimes the eyes are closed; more frequently open, glazed, fixed and glaring fiercely. The lips, markedly full and red, are drawn back from the teeth which gleam long, sharp as razors and ivory white. Often the gaping mouth is stained and foul with great slab gouts of blood, which trickles down from the corners on the lawn shroudings and linen cerements. the offal of the last night's feast.'
- Montague Summers
