The Shape Shifting Cockatrice Of Marshall, Texas

cockatrice

BY LISA LEE HARP WAUGH

THE TRUE STORY OF A TEXAN COCKATRICE AS I HEARD IT FIRST HAND OVER THE YEARS TO MY RECOLLECTIONS OF THE MARSHALL, TEXAS'S URBAN LEGEND

A cockatrice is a strange legendary creature, resembling a large rooster with a lizard-like tail.

"An ornament in the drama and poetry of the Elizabethans", Laurence Breiner described it.

"The cockatrice, which no one ever saw, was born by accident at the end of the twelfth century and died in the middle of the seventeenth, a victim of the new science."

So it is to be believed. Or Not.


In the trying feast or famine times after the Great terrible War Between the States. And in the course enduring the intense hot month on the last Sunday of of the month of August on the 29th day of the year of our Lord 1869. So there in the small, ever growing town of dusty Marshall, Texas it was changed forever.

At least that is the words as the old stories around here always begin with instead of a simple Once upon a time.

Anyway's...

... A strange undying half chicken, half snake or lizard thing of a mutant crossed evil monster of a creature was born on a small farm near town.

It seems the real old folks in these parts still know but often won't tell of the cockatrice creature actions and the horrors and the atrocities it committed in their stories.

To this very exact day many will only say that they are much to horrible in telling. That is when it comes to reliving in your mind the horror of the many tragic deaths that choke you up when you try to describe them in full exact detail, for someone like you that that wants so bad to hear them there stories.

Now you see, the old red hen was getting close to the end of her time on earth. she was a good chicken as standards go. And also a favorite to the farmers wife because she was such a dependable good egg layer.

On the day she laid the very last egg of her brood to be. The hard working Farmers wife's hand turned and counted all five and moved on collecting the rest of the bounty of their fresh morning brown yard eggs.

This farmers wife figured to let her set up a fine nest of baby chicks. This she thought was to let her live the full life she deserved for being a good layer all these long years before she becomes a Sunday dinner real soon for the family after church.

As almost any good for nothing but laying chicken does, she sat nicely on her new nest well and for the 21, long, hot, summer days until they all but one hatched.

And she sat proudly upon the one last lone egg for a day more and it hatched a terrible monster. Some stories you hear at this point states that it ate all the other normal chicks, it's brothers and sisters it gobbled them whole. But the majority of the old urban legends and stories often state it was just found and put in a cage.

The Monstrous chick snake lizard was described as originally bursting through it's egg covered in a greenish slime.

The farmers wife told neighbors when she described what she witnessed. That the thing looked like a large lizard she said all flustered, and it had a long almost 12 inch snake scaled like tail with a club or point on the end. But then it also had this beak almost like a chickens and also a few strange feathers.

COCATRICE HATCHLING

Upon witnessing this she ran from the coup tripping over a bucket of chicken mess she had just cleaned up. And as she screamed for her husband to: "Come see!" ... "Come See!" she fell to the ground with a thud and all the chickens in the coop ran over her to flee.

"It was greenish brown or red in color and it made a screeching sound that made you have to hold your ears shut tight." Her husband told the neighbors the next day. He didn't know when he first laid eyes on it and saw what it really was and if he should kill it, or keep it alive and sell it to the side show when it came through town again.

He knew even dead it would fetch a pretty penny. His wife could always pickle it in a large jar with some grain alcohol from the still.

But a live monster from a chicken's eggs could fetch a mighty high dollar more, or two. And if it died he thought to himself he could always have it stuffed and mount it on the wall.

 

The story of how the Cockatrice was born in Marshall, Texas was a tale my momma's momma had told her. Many kids in town knew the old legend well and every story I heard growing up in the 1960' and 70's followed the basic tale. We'd all go out at night to Tick Pond Road and worry about what strange giant Tickman, Monsters, werewolves ghost, Chickenman and other such strange things in the night.

Many girl would often tell how they smelt the stench of death from the chicken man, tand often how the monsters killing stench latter learned that it was only their boy friend fartin in the dark.

We really did not know what to call the creature when we told the story or heard it at the time except for the "chicken snake creature" or just the "chicken monster".

In my dear sweet old Grandma Harp's My Daddy's Momma version she called it the "Rooster Snake"!

Grand Ma Harp said she heard the old story that it was a rattle snake like body and crawled on the ground and had two back chicken feet to stand on. She knew this because she had seen the creature first hand in a large jar of Formaldehyde dead one summer night at a carnival passing through town. She said heard tell that it had a breath so bad you could smell it come from a mile or more away. It had the power to look a man or woman or beast in the eye and freeze them in their spot.

Grand Ma Harp would stop her story right there fearing the image she just called up in her mind would give her scary real bad dreams for a few long months of Sundays to come she would say in a frightened voice.

Her very good close friends and family at the time would also tell her the many strange chicken monster sightings and encounter stories they had heard growing up my Grand Ma Harp said. "And what some of my firneds woulddescribed of the monster and it's actions was more then just "horrific, disturbing and unspeakable."

And in my early to late teens while reading an occult book I picked up at the library I learned the true story of the Cockatrice and put two and two together of what this old tall Texan tale was actually all about, or based on.

They in Marshall who know the tale say the Farmer kept it alive for a year or more, selectively hand feeding it a paste made of chicken grain and scraps from his own table. He kept it in a strong cage he built and made sure his three boys fed and watered everyday.

He prised it dearly and would only show it to his closest of friends. And as the long story goes he showed it to onlt the preacher who said it was an abomination under God. then and only then to the Doctor who wanted to take it away and examine it.

All this was said to be common knowledge until one day he never spoke of it again.

When questioned he would tell those that heard the town gossip and looking them dead straight in the eye, that he did not know what they were talking about.

All this was around the time his wife was said to have lost her eyes in a freak strange rake accident. Though many said her skin and face showed several clear signs as if they were scratched or clawed right out of her lovely head.

Soon after maybe 1 or 2 months or so many peoples cherished dogs and cats who lived near the little farm began to disappear.

One day 8 of a neighbors prised egg laying chickens were torn to shreds and only their feet remained still cluthed tight to their perches in the coops as evidence, that they had once been there. And not a drop of blood to found anywhere in sight.

There was reported though that a terribe stench filled the air and it was many a week or more before the shaken chicken farmer could go near it again.

Many say or believe that theformal roman ritual of exorcism was finally performed to rid Marshall of this creature when it attacked the local Priest's pet dog. The St. Joseph Church Church Founded 1874 is now located on 410 North Alamo Boulevard today.

M y Grand Ma Harp told me that many believe the creature completely was exiled from our community around the fall of 1880 when they first opened a parish school in Marshall, called St. Mary's Academy.

At the time the Head priest was said to be out walking his dog when it froze in it's tracks mesmerized. The creature he described was a chicken like lizard that slid across the ground on it's body like a snake. It then got up and stood on two back legs and attacked his poor old dog with it's front long talons in a second flat.

In a flash the creature then flew up in the priests face and took to the sky in flight. Feeling that this evil spawn was not of this world and from the Devil the priest performed a powerful blessing or as some will tell a actual formal exorcism of the horrible demon just to send the thing back to hell.

Many believe that the creature in these parts might also be a shape shifter. It as many tales go as far as other Texas nearby communities of Scottsville, Nesbitt, Rogers lake, Carthage, Jefferson, Longview, Kilgore, Oveton and Hayden. And this is all where the creature was said to have been spotted as it roamed and killed dozens upon dozens of cows, chickens, dogs, cats, and a person or two. It was often believed to able to change itself into anything from rock to animal and even take a human form to ensnare it's victims.

It often might appears as a handsome young man or girls nude in the woods beckoning you to follow them. there it would devour you slowly over a few days as all you do paralyzed feel the never ending pain and torture.

Some around Jefferson, Texas when they tell the story say it is not a magical power. But the supposed creature has and it is a simple as a lizard changing it's color for them to do.

They also are said to blend into tress at will, and they cling to and brush just a s their green lizard counter parts do. Only to surprise it's victim by opening its evil eyes or casting their breath upon them in a surprise attack.

A story I heard more then often is how these creatures would also be able to mimic a voice often crying like a baby in the night or person pleading for help. Many said the fact that it had a long split tongue this gave it the power to speak like a human and copy sounds of the woods and of people. Though the creature is said to have been not able to carry on a conversation.

A few over the years have related to me that if you crowed like a rooster when you saw the beast in a false disguise then the chicken beast would turn back into it's original form and just run scared and disappear into the deep thick East Texas pine and sticker filled dark woods.

If the "chicken monster" as we sometimes might here it referred to or the "chicken man" of Marshall Texas. Many old stories said that you would find the corpses of his victims frozen in fright just standing along side a road or in the woods. One man was found in his field still leaning on his plow, and drained of all his blood.

The wild beast is said to have by using it's breath or eyes jinxed the person into not being able to move a muscle. Then small creature would climb up your body and only then standing with one claw firm in your shoulder with it's other dirty back claws pry your mouth open and bite out your tongue. It then eats your eyes out one by one then goes down and claws it's way into either your belly or anus. All of this it does very neatly in the matter of a few hours as the victim slowly dies the most horrible of deaths as it's might or chicks come to dine. Many in this part of East Texas often think that all the cattle mutilations are the work of cockatrices or chicken monsters. The strange thing a story in these parts might tell is that even a turkey vulture won't touch the carcass if a Chicken monster had killed it first.

The stench or foul evil rotting smell of the breath and mouth of this chicken snake creature is said to permeate the air for several days and chase off any other creatures for over a mile and a half away.

Rancid as a burst road kill carcass along the side of the highway 80, and times x10 the smell. This is how intense the odor is said to be, and how more potent then a dead skunks. And many of those who tell of people encountering it says, it is something better not smelt in the first place.

My Grand-Ma Harp would make a gagging sound at this point and have to run and get a glass of water. Or she would put one of those red and white peppermint in her mouth because she said it gave her the memory of the bad tasting smell she said she knew from when she was a very young girl.

But once you smell it it also leaves a bad taste in your mouth and food never taste right for a month or more until it loses it's strange effect over you.

Some stories I heard when I lived in Marshall tell that the chicken creature sometime hiding in a tree or on a roof top will purposely spit on a person or it's prey's head. The stench from the vile mouth and spittle many say is so bad the person or animal it spat on just can't get rid of the stink. The creature after scent marking it's victim might track them for days until it strikes them while they are always all alone.

The first rule if you are unlucky enough to encounter the chicken monster was to never look it in the eye. If you did the creature would mesmerize you then pluck out your eyes and swallow them whole.

The Second rule was to immediately cover your nose and mouth because if it sprays you with it's urine or worse spit upon you, then you were surely marked for death in the days ahead.

The third rule get on a train and leave town today!

There in the day were said to be many fine remedies and cures for getting rid of the smell of the creature if it was marked on your head by it's saliva stench. This usually meant it was time to shave your head good and clean and make a poultice paste of dog and cat feces with the fresh guts of a chicken an ounce of corn whisky. And this old remedy could also be used on cars, dogs and livestock.

To this day the strange Cockatrice creature has never been reported to have return to Marshall after it was exorcised. And, but many of those that know the old stories still keep an open eye out and their nose's to the wind, ...just in case.

THE COCKATRICE

The True Cockatrice Myth Or Legend

The Cockatrice

The Cockatrice is sometimes described plainly as having lizard or small miniature dragon's form or snakes body, but with a definite rooster's crowing head.

Sometimes described as having large red to black eyes and a snake's black wet tongue almost like or birds but always a split forked lounge.

The Cockatrice


The cockatrice of old was first described in the late twelfth century based on a hint in Pliny's Natural History, as a duplicate of the basilisk or regulus, though, unlike the basilisk, the cockatrice has wings.

According to Alexander Neckam's De naturis rerum (ca 1180), it was supposed to be born from an egg laid by a cock and incubated by a toad; a snake might be substituted in re-tellings. The translation from basiliscus to cockatrice was effected when the basiliscus in Bartholomeus Anglicus' De proprietatibus rerum (ca 1260) was translated by John Trevisa as cockatrice (1397).

Attempts to identify it with any particular biological species have proved generally futile.

Other legends report a dragon's form, but with a rooster's head. Sometimes described as having dark red or pitch black eyes. Its look or breath is said to be poison, but can be killed by a weasel or by the sound of a rooster crowing.

cockatrice

Abilities Its reputed to have such as magical abilities include turning people to stone or killing them by stareing them in the eyes and making ones heart stop in fear.

This could be accomplished either by just looking at them — "the death-darting eye of Cockatrice"— touching them, or sometimes breathing on them.

Although attempts to identify it with any particular biological species have proved generally futile, the cockatrice's credibility as a living animal was paralleled by the Gryphon, a cross between an eagle and a lion, and other hybrid beasts.

Also the fact that the bones of the animal had been replaced by minerals and turned into rock may have inspired the cockatrice's abilities.

Chicken embryos are known to develop reptilian tails, but chemical hormone triggers replace it with a "normal" bird's tail by the time it hatches. It's quite possibly a rare occurrence for a chicken, or any bird for that matter, to be born with its embryonic reptilian tail.

THE HEAD OF A COCKATRICE

It was repeated several times in the late-medieval bestiaries that the weasel is the only animal that is immune to the glance of a cockatrice.

It was also a thought that a cockatrice would die instantly upon hearing a rooster crow no matter what time of the day it was.

According to legend, having a cockatrice look itself in a mirror is one of the most powerful and fast ways to kill it.

The cockatrice was also able to fly with the large set of wings affixed to its back. But by being what many believed to be part chicken it is assumed that it could or would only fly short distances.

Like the head of the Gorgon the evil Medusa, the cockatrice's powers of physical petrifaction were thought still to effect the living and that's after it's death of the cockatrice no matter how long in the past.

It is often told and said to be born from a strange tale of coming from a rooster's egg, hatched by a serpent or a toad other then a hen.

Its foul smelling evil breath is said to be poison. It causes lapse of memory for several days and general hallucinations. Many today relate the breath of the beast to being similar to the bite of a Komodo Dragon. The Cockatrice hisses it's breath upon a person or prey then tracks them until they fall weak. the reason is because such beast as the Cockatrice grow no larger then 4- 5 feet tall. But because of the long thin whipping serpents tail they might be 15 feet long.

Also Called Basilisk- frequently, these terms are used interchangeably.

Described By: Unknown- "For they say that when a Cocke groweth old, he layeth a certaine egge without any shell, instead whereof it is covered with a very thicke skinne, which is able to withstand the greatest force of an easie blow or fall.

They saye, moreover, that this egge is layd onely in the Summer time, about the beginning of the Dogge-dayes (between early July and early September), being not so long as a Hens Egge, but round and orbiculer:...sometimes of a yellowish muddy color... and afterward sat upon by a Snake or Toad, bringeth forth the Cockatrice, being halfe a foot in length, the hinder part like a snake, the former part like a Cocke, because of a treble comb on his forehead."

Supposedly there was a cockatrice found in the vault of a chapel dedicated to Saint Lucea during the time of Pope Leo the Fourth (847 to 855.)

The breath of this cockatrice fouled the air, and caused many deaths in Rome.

In England the town most associated with the Cockatrice is the village of Wherwell, near Andover in Hampshire. The story is that the Cockatrice terrorised the village until it was imprisoned in the dungeons below Wherwell Priory. A prize of land was offered to anyone who could kill the creature. None was successful, until a man named Green lowered a mirror into the dungeon. The Cockatrice battled against its own reflection until exhausted, at which point Green was able to kill it. Today there is an area of land near Wherwell called Green's Acres. For many years a weather vane in the shape of a Cockatrice adorned the church of St. Peter and Holy Cross in Wherwell until it was removed to Andover Museum. In the King James Version of the Old Testament, following a tradition established in John Wyclif's bible (1382) the word is used several times, to translate Hebrew tziph'oni: And the sucking child shall play on the hole of the asp, and the weaned child shall put his hand on the cockatrice' den. —Isaiah 11 8 Rejoice not thou, whole Palestina, because the rod of him that smote thee is broken: for out of the serpent's root shall come forth a cockatrice, and his fruit shall be a fiery flying serpent. —Isaiah 14 29 They hatch cockatrice' eggs, and weave the spider's web: he that eateth of their eggs dieth, and that which is crushed breaketh out into a viper. —Isaiah 59 5 For, behold, I will send serpents, cockatrices, among you, which will not be charmed, and they shall bite you, saith the lord. —Jeremiah 8 17 In all these instances, the Revised Version— following the tradition established by Jerome's Vulgate basiliscus— renders the word "basilisk", and the New International Version translates it as "viper".

In Proverbs 23:32 the similar Hebrew tzeph'a is rendered "adder", both in the Authorized Version and the Revised Version.

Laurence Breiner also identified the uses of the cockatrice in alchemy (Breiner 1979).

In European bestiaries and legends, a basilisk (English pronunciation: /ˈbæzɪlɪsk/, from the Greek βασιλίσκος basilískos, "little king"; Latin Regulus) is a legendary reptile reputed to be king of serpents and said to have the power to cause death with a single glance. According to the Naturalis Historia of Pliny the Elder, the basilisk of Cyrene is a small snake, "being not more than twelve fingers in length", that is so venomous that it leaves a wide trail of deadly venom in its wake, and its gaze is likewise lethal; its weakness is in the odour of the weasel, which, according to Pliny, was thrown into the basilisk's hole, recognisable because all the surrounding shrubs and grass had been scorched by its presence. Basiliscus' is also the name of a genus of small lizards, (family Corytophanidae).

Green Basilisk

The Green Basilisk, also called plumed basilisk, is a lizard that can run across the surface of water by rapid strides of its splayed rear feet.

From wikipedia:

Modern fantasy fiction and games The cockatrice has provided magical or neo-medieval colour for much fantasy fiction, Dungeons & Dragons role-playing games, and commercial entertainment. For most people, these provide the main encounters with the imaginary cockatrice. Very much the same as the description of the Final Fantasy XII Cockatrice, it is one of the monsters in the arcade game Golden Axe, and the 2005 Playstation 2 game Altered Beast, although this version is more scaly and does not roll in a ball. In Final Fantasy VI, a cockatrice appears in the form of the Esper, Tritoch (Valigarmanda). It also appears as a common monster early in Final Fantasy IV, on Mount Hobs. On rare occasions, they drop a "summon" spell which can be given to one of the characters. The summoned cockatrice will stone one enemy. Cockatrice are also common monsters in Final Fantasy XI Online. The cockatrice is also a slayer monster from the game RuneScape. Players need to wear a Mirror Shield to protect themselves from their gaze, otherwise their attacking skills would drop to dangerous levels and they would die. It is also available as a familiar that you can summon, along with "Guthatrice, Saratrice, and Zamatrice". In the 2007 Easter event, the character is accompanied by a "Chocatrice" whose ability is turning certain creatures to chocolate; after the mini-quest, the character gains an item called the Chocatrice Cape" which allows them to turn into a large egg for two seconds. Cockatrice is Monster in My Pocket #7. He is an enemy in the video game, sending powerful blasts from his eyes.

The cockatrice is one of the most notorious hostile creatures in NetHack; there are estimated to be 47 distinct ways for the player character to be turned to stone by a cockatrice, its corpse or its eggs. Its corpse makes a devastating weapon, petrifying most monsters with a single blow, but gloves must be worn and extreme caution exercised.

In this role the corpse is referred to as a "rubber chicken." Cockatrices appear as controllable characters in Ogre Battle: March of the Black Queen. Cockatrices also appear in Ogre Battle 64. In this sequel, they remain large characters, but no longer "evolve" from any other creature. They are notorious for their "Petrify" ability, which can quickly disable a unit. Cockatrices appear in another Ogre game, "Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together", where they are depicted as a bird like creature that looks like it mixed with a lizard.

They are well known for their "Petrify" ability, which can turn a unit into stone and disable the unit. They can also fly, making them very versatile.

The Digimon, Kokatorimon, is based on a Cockatrice, as shown by its name, appearance and attacks. Cockatrices make appearances as monsters in the game The Witcher, although it is stated in the game that they lack the ability to turn their victims into stone.

In Boktai: The Sun is in Your Hand and Boktai 2: Solar Boy Django cockatrices appeared as enemies that shot petrifying beams of energy when startled. In the first game, the cockatrices appeared as servants of Carmilla, the Howling Banshee, in the Sol City dungeon. In Castlevania, Aria of sorrow and Curse Of Darkness they also appear; they can shoot a petrifying beam and is one of the strongest summons in Circle of the Moon: causes a Cockatrice to fly across the screen from right to left, bringing with it a flurry of boulders to attack any enemies onscreen. Each individual boulder breaks when it hits an enemy.

In a movie version of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe by C.S.Lewis a CGI cockatrice appears, fighting on the good side in the big battle against the White Witch's army, but it is not mentioned in the book version.

In the video game Lost Kingdoms II, the cockatrice is a giant bird-like monster which attacks with its poisonous breath and is usually found in pairs guarding an egg. The monster can be summoned as a weapon card.

In the video game "Disgaea 3: Absence of Justice", the cockatrice appears in the second chapter as the guardian of a dragon's egg. It uses a poisonous breath attack.

Also mentioned in the Harry Potter series of books as a magical creature.

A cockatrice is at the heart of Tanith Lee's story The Clockatrice, available online.

Cockatrice is a Guardian ÄRM in the anime show MÄR: Märchen Awakens Romance. It is summoned by the Chess Piece Rolan. Its ability is also petrification by means of a smoke that it blows at opponents. Cockatrice is a card from Magic: the Gathering that appeared in the first release ("alpha"). It also appeared in the beta, unlimited, revised, fourth, fifth and time spiral sets.

The Cockatrice is also a major boss in the video game "Megaman Zero 4", as Popla Cocapetri.

The basilisk was considered the most poisonous creature on earth. His appearance was allways a matter of dispute. Early wood-cuts (e.g., in Ulisse Aldrovandi: Serpentum et Draconu Historiae libri duo. - Bologna, 1640). show an animal with a domed body, eight legs, a serpent´s tail and a rooster´s head wearing a crown. But allready Athanasius Kircher (Mundus Subterraneus, Roma, 1678) described his later emanation: the cockatrice. Others considered him a dragon. The antique Romans called him "regulus" or little king, not only because of his crown, but because he terrorized all other creatures with his deadly look and poison.

His colour was yellow, sometimes with a kind of blackish hue. Plinius mentioned a white spot on his head, which could be misinterpreted as a diadem or a crown. Others speak of three spikes on his forehead. Most authors agree, that Africa was his homeland. There he was hatched from the egg of an ibis or a black stork. His manifestation as cockatrice was rather associated with a rooster´s egg.

Regarding his dangerousness three main types were distinguished.

The golden basilisk poisoned everything by his mere look.

Another with only a golden head terrorized and killed every creature by his evil eye.

A sting of the sanguineous basilisk made the flesh fall off the bones of his victim. All three had a deadly breath which could even make rocks crumble.

The basilisk took his home in deep wells and rotten cellars or vaults. It is said that mother nature made these creatures seek these remote dwellings in order to spear both humans and other animals from its deadly look. a

basilisk killed three persons in Warszawa (Poland). Playing hide-and-seek two children - a boy and a girl, both five years old - intended to hide in an old cellar which had been abandoned for 30 years. When they reached the lowest step they suddenly fell dead on the floor. They were not found before the evening, when they were missed by their mothers.

A servant was sent out in search. She really found them, but when she went down into the cellar to waken the apparently sleeping children she was herself struck by death. However, an old woman had noticed her entering the abandoned building. She found them all three lying on the ground. All her shouting remained unanswered. Neighbours came and recovered the corpses with long clasps.

The bodies were swollen, and so were their lips and tongues. Their skin had turned to yellow. From these signs some learned persons guessed, that a serpent or rather a basilisk had caused their deaths.

A poor sinner was found who had been sentenced to death. He was clad in leather clothes draped with mirrors. His eyes were protected by strong glasses. With a candle in one hand and pincers in the other he went down the vault.

There after half an hour´s search he found a strange creature of the size of a cock sitting in a crevasse of the wall. It was at once killed when it saw its own image reflected by the mirrors. The man took it with the pincers and brought it up to bright daylight. It was identified as a basilisk with the head of an indian cock but the eyes of a toad.

Its body and wings were coloured with yellow, blue, red, and green specks. The long, yellow feet were that of a rooster, but its curved tail resembled that of a snake. An italian nobleman was killed by a basilisk when he went hunting.

For a long time his dog had barked at a heap of stones when his master tried to find out what embarrassed his dog. He found a winged serpent. When he tried to slay her, the serpent spread the wings and blew poisonous breath into his face. At once he fell to the ground and lived just long enough to tell his companions what he had seen.

BASILISK TRAM SIGN

Until the 1980's, two Basilisks holding Basel's coat of arms with the black crosier could also be seen on every tram wagon in Basel, but they have been replaced by a modern logo that may hardly be recognized as an abstract crosier. You may encounter a nostalgic tram with the old logo in Basel's streets from time to time, however.

In addition to the stories, a variety of zombie-related facts are explored, including ceremonies and initiations, zombies throughout history, sacred zombie and voodoo-related sites, and zombies and monsters of the Bible.
