My favorite werewolf is Remus Lupin from the Harry Potter series, a kind and caring man with an unfortunate plight that occurred every full moon.

Lupin wished to curb and contain his situation, as opposed to Fenrir Greyback, who had the ill will to bite as many men, women, and children as possible to accumulate a villainous army of werewolves to overtake wizards.

I'd like to think that if werewolves do exist, that a majority of them would have a mindset like Lupin's, but something tells me that wouldn't necessarily be the case.

Below is a list of creepy werewolf stories. Whether you believe them or not, these tales might send a shiver down your spine. Tread on, if you dare.

1. The Story of Gilles Garnier

In the 1500s, a werewolf roamed around the town of Dole, terrorizing and killing the inhabitants. One day, while walking through the woods, a group of peasants heard a young child screaming paired with the howl of a wolf. They rushed to the noise and saw a man named Gilles Garnier transforming into a werewolf and attacking the child.

Gilles Garnier was eventually taken to the sheriff's, where he confessed to being a werewolf. He was later burnt at the stake.
