Needs More Examples, Needs a Better Description.

Sometimes you need a complex ritual to free the Sealed Evil in a Can...but sometimes you just need a little blood. Not to say this can't be done as part of a ritual, but in many cases it's by accident, where splattering some blood in an innopurtune time frees, awakens or revives a sleeping evil.

Examples:

  • Dracula would always be raised this way in the Hammer films.
  • In Hellraiser, the husband bleeding on the floor is what allows his evil undead brother to regenerate himself.
  • In the manwha Priest, a train secretly delivers a cargo of zombies. They were supposed to stay dormant for the trip, but then a train robbery splatters blood on their door...
