When my dad was in college, he and some friends were walking along a street in the French Quarter when they passed a wooden gate at the side of a residence. They heard growling, and some kind of animal -- a dog, they thought -- was throwing itself against the gate. There was a small wooden peephole in the gate, maybe 6 inches across. One of the guys wanted to see the dog, started to walk up to the hole and stand on tiptoe to see it and was advised, "I wouldn't do that if I were you." He did it anyway and stuck his face through the hole to see the dog ... who promptly leapt up and bit through his nose.
You're probably one of those people who go into a spooky old mansion and open doors that the butler tells you you're forbidden to open. You could wind up as some vampire's dinner or something. So watch out.
