In this Nov. 30, 2012 photo, the interior of recently collapsed old watermill located on the Rogacica river which was believed to have been Sava Savanovic's home, in the village of Zarozje, near the Serbian town of Bajina Basta. Get your garlic, wooden crosses and stakes ready: a bloodsucking vampire is on the loose. Or so say villagers in the tiny western Serbian hamlet of Zarozje, nestled between the lush green mountain slopes and spooky thick forests. Rumors that a legendary vampire ghost has returned are spreading panic throughout the town. An official warning telling villagers to put garlic in their pockets and place wooden crosses in each of their rooms, the tools that should keep away the vampires did nothing but fuel the fear. "The story of Sava Savanovic is a legend, but strange things did occur in these parts back in the old days," said 55-year-old housewife Milka Prokic, holding a string of onions in one hand and a large wooden stake in another. The story goes that back in the old days, vampires would roam around and show themselves in different forms, as a butterfly, or as a hay stack, they would change form," she said as mist settled on the pristine valley and the full moon appeared in the sky.
