Levitation is the process is by which an object is suspended by a physical force against gravity, in a stable position without solid physical contact. In horror fiction, this effect is often mystical in nature and may be possessed by any number of supernatural entities. Magic users are the most common of such groups to employ the use of levitation. In recent years, vampires have been shown to possess the power of levitation, some of whom can outright fly. This ability was gradually added to the vampire's repertoire of powers ever since the idea of a vampire transforming into a bat was no longer considered palatable to movie watchers or readers. The height, duration and conditions under which an individual can levitate their body varies. Some may also possess the ability to cause other objects to levitate, which is actually a form of psychic power called Telekinesis.
