1 . There’s a Japanese supernatural of the status of women who wears a concealment. She approaches young children expecting them if they remember she is beautiful. If the child explanations yes, she removes her mask and invites again. This time her true nature is indicate, having her cheek pussy from hearing to ear. If their own children says no, she kills them. If the child says yes again, much in Japanese supernatural pattern, she follows them dwelling and kills them.
2 . The moving leader. In Malaysia we called it “PENANGGAL”. It’s mostly a separated front that moves around in the night, endeavouring the blood of the status of women who recently gave delivery. The foreman is moving with its lungs and throat dangling below its neck. When morning comes, the pate will fly back and attach to its body.
3 . Aka Manto( “Red Cape” ). It’s a malicious force found in public bathrooms that will give the unfortunate person either a ruby-red or blue-blooded paper or cape. If they intend to select red, they would be trounced to extinction; if they were to collect blue-blooded, they would be strangled.
4 . Indigenous Australian’s have the Yowie, which is like Bigfoot etc, and in many fictions is evil-minded and vicious. But one clan mentioned a detail I had never heard before and care I could unhear 😛 TAGEND
The feet of the Yowie are fastened on backwards. So if you find racetracks and think you are safely running away from the Yowie, back the acces it came instead of following it, you are actually getting closer.
5 . La Xtabai. She’s usually identified at night wearing a grey dress and has huge black eyes. She lures men and women that are out at night behind a ceiba tree and then invites them to have sex. Once they have sex, La Xtabai will change into a serpent and eat them. She can also be seen under a tree to seduce and then shed her someone over a cliff. Once she sheds them over, she will rend their heart.
6. La Lorna. She is the ghost of a woman who lost/ submerge her children and now cries while looking for them in the river, often causing misfortune to those who are near or discover her. She will entice or kidnap children and drawing them to the river.
7 . Kelpies are sea villains that live in Scottish Lochs. On property they look like beautiful and tame mares, but if “youre trying” domesticated or razz they they’ll fuse your hands into their disguise, transform into their genuine chassis and dive into the extents of a Loch( which tend to be penetrating and extremely dreary ), drowning and eating you. Generally you can tell a kelpie has only made a kill if you check human entrails swimming on the surface.
8 . An age-old Japanese damsel told me this history. If “youve had” two mirrors facing each other so the thoughts make a passageway, then you ignite a candle between them. If you look down the passageway you’ll ascertain a beast putting out the candle in the reflects as it gets closer by jump-start forward a reflection each time you look away, and if it gets to you, it grabs you and pulls you into the reflect studying to be a demon and attract the next martyr in.
9 . When I lived in an Australian outback city in the middle of nowhere our Indigenous Studies coach, who is able Aboriginal, desired to be said stories. She intimidated all the first graders straight by telling us never got to go into the desert alone, because there lives a being who is always thirsty. He’s always trying to find liquid, but never can because it hardly sprinkles. So when plump and juicy infants become lost in the desert, he mounts on them and drinks all their blood. All he leaves behind are the baked husks of children around their parents to find.
10 . My hometown is appointed for the freshwater springs that suds up everywhere in the woods around city. Obviously this was a perk for early people living there, and so the original immigrants were surprised to see that the regional Ojibwe eschewed the arena. They did this because they had a folk remembering about a bad intent that dominated members of the tribe( starting with children) and obliged them to enter into the springtimes and drown themselves.
Naturally they have a revelation about it, more; one day or another, “theyre saying”,” the outpourings will open again .”
11 . Orang Minyak- the oily lover in Malay. He’s a shaman or a supernatural being absolutely covered in tar or black oil. He incomes and increases his supremacies by abducting and abusing virgins. While I studied in Malaysia, a few girlfriends were crimes on our campus and somehow Orang Minyak was accused. The rumor spread like shoot. One weekend there was literally an exodus of students all in hysterium because most of them firmly speculated “wed been” being attacked by Orang Minyak. Most of the International students were just in disbelief….
12 . As a Trinidadian, grown up we were told not to remain strolling off into the forests. “Douens” lived in the woodlands, and were basically progenies that had their paws back-to-front. Once they learned a child’s name, they would call out to them in the spokesperson of both parents, producing them into the forests. Their footprints would precede the child more astray, losing them in the woodlands for good. They are said to be lost souls of kids.
13 . Tata Duende. A 3ft tall demon that wears a ruby-red hat, has backwards feet, and is missing his thumbs. He is interested in juveniles, and if they don’t secrete their digit he will bite them off. He will too try to seduce children into the jungle. The only path to escape him is to hide your digits and picture merely your four digits. Tata Duende will think you are like him and would let you go.
14 . Wendigo( wenddigo, wittiko ), an Ojibwe myth to explain cannibalism despite bountiful food supplies.
Stories tend to originate around parties either dedicating cannibalism, or being forcing them to when lost in the forest. The latter has some floor point involving hearing your reputation being announced in the wind and liquid and individuals in the grove, and if you finally hold it an answer, you’ve allowed the minds of wendigo in.
It was a law until the mid 20 th century that anyone suspected of being possessed by a wendigo should immediately be put to death or probability devouring the part hamlet/ city, or passing the heart on to another host.
15 . Nakki is a spirit that is living in still pools and under connections. It can appear as a beautiful wife to seduce beings close to the irrigate, whereupon it drags them into the depths.
16 . Shadow parties/ Shadow servicemen. More recent than a lot of traditional mythology some of the storeys around shadow beings are pretty spooky.
The gist of it is that evil spirits/ beasts will take the form of people in dark the regions and begin following you and try to maneuver you to follow them into the darker areas often taking a human formation or calling out from the nearby palls. Some have claimed to even have had them follow them residence, and make the form of children that thumped on their door and asked for permission to enter and use their phone or something similar but always with the attempt to gain permission to enter their home. Though most children show human their noses are always altogether black.
17 . I’m from Spanish swoop, and when I was young my mama always told me about El Cuco, the Spanish Boogeyman. El Cuco would go to into closets and under berths, and would dine babes who were disobedient to their parents, and he would also kidnap infants. I didn’t believes in him but that would always conclude me hide in my plot if I felt something around me. Moral of the narration, don’t be mean to your parents.
18 . We have a local mythology in the Philippines called Manananggal, its a normal dame but during the night it separates its lower mas from its upper mas and it stretches backstages. According to the storeys surpassed, when you hear its enunciate and it is loud it represents its still far, but if its gentle intends it is near you. The only route to kill it is to find its lower mas and lean salt in it.
19 . Here in Scotland, I was told about changelings as a little kid. The wee-wee tribe( fairys are nasty in Scottish tales) swap your babe with one of theirs so you feed and foster it for them. The baby will look just like yours so it’s hard to tell.
I heard to defeat them, you have to do something really strange, like prepare a dinner for everyone but in an eggshell, and act like nothing is off, or act like you’re cleaning the floor but sweep clay into the area from outside and act as though you’re proud of your clean house. Then You leave the apartment and peek through, and if you discover the baby talking to itself out loud in young adults articulate, wondering why you would do such an curious thing, you’re to run into the area, grab the babe, and shed it in a body of water!
Then the wee-wee folk will run out to save it from submerge, and descent your baby in the race, and you can get them back.
20 . I went on vacation in the Philippines once. I stood at a backpackers’ lodge in this beach island and I met a couple of Filipino travelers whom I’ve resolved up bonding with. One darknes, they told me about what they call the tiyanak . em>
Apparently, tiyanaks are demon-babies spawned by the motherfucker himself. Tiyanaks appear as charming, cuddly, bright-eyed children to seduce humen into coming near them, then they reveal their true-blue demon figure as they devour all the persons who do.
21 . This swedish urban fiction about a ”Myling”. A myling is a child that has been killed by its baby to then be obscured, often under the cabon floor, to prevented an unwanted brat. The ”Myling” would often scream and cry for help, or for attending. Just to fix everyone living closeby or at the actual plaza, feel uneasy.
You could also assist the ”Myling” by feeling its corpse to then embed it at sacred grounds.
22. The Madamas, evil spirits in the shape of an impossibly beautiful lady who live in caves underground protecting huge treasures. If you go to a cave where a Madama lives at dawn “youre seeing” her coming out with her comb to comb her long blond “hairs-breadth”. She will ask you to come with her and become her husband underground, but you will be required to refuse- those who know the lore is recognized that her beautiful comb is made of human bone.
23 . The Santa Compana from Galicia in northwestern Spain is a procession of dead souls that move the timber in winter lights. You can see their swoon synopsis in the fog and they are led by a living person carrying a lit candle to lead the way and a cauldron. This person has been cursed into leading them and will waste their nighttimes ranging the countryside extending the dead until they die of exhaustion because they retain nothing when they wake up in their plots the morning after. The only behavior for a blessed person to filch his affliction is to run into another living person and surpass them the candle and cauldron. If you run into the Santa Compana there are a few things you can do to prevent being cursed, such as going into a faith, or extorting a circle around you with an olive tree branch.
24 . I live in the UK so black puppies. They panicked me as a kid since they are a devilish entity and were rumoured to signal fatality. Everytime I was in a car at night, I was afraid we’d pass across some woods and learn a duet of scarlet attentions glaring back. The UK’s kinda known for its sightings of escaped swine from zoos so anything large-scale, black and shadowy is freaky.
25 . The Jersey Devil. I grew up near the Pine Barrens in New Jersey and for years was panicked of disappearing next to my space at night in case the Jersey Devil was outside.
The story goes that in the 1800 ’s Mrs Leeds cursed her 13 th child as it was being born and it attacked the midwife and operated up into the chimney and now stalks the pine barrens.
He has bat backstages and a horse’s honcho, and a branched tail and likes to eat chickens and bird-dogs and basically control around startling you at night.
My uncle said he saw it formerly and refuses to drive through the yearn barrens at night.
26 . In Islamic culture/ doctrine, the committee is souls (?) announced jinn and the idea of them always freaked me out. SO numerous beings I know claim to have had an experience with them. Apparently they live in a parallel macrocosm to us, so they can see us but we can’t see them unless they want us to. And they can possess you.
27 . Pocong. They’re wrapped corpses who hop-skip because their paws are bound, and if one ascertains you it will follow you across the earth.
28 . This one I examined at Sapfest( gathering maple sap) in Northern Wisconsin. I’m not sure if it’s well known, since I merely ever heard it from my family.
It’s called the buried son, and it came out of this song we sing while at Sapfest. It’s pretty much precisely singing about a chap sitting on the riverbank with his sweetheart while he speaks of his older brother, who was murdered and lay by his dad.
According to the tale, the oldest brother rose up that night and killed his daddy as payback. Except for, his eyes had already been devoured by fledglings, so he didn’t see that his father was dead. So he impeded wandering around, searching for “his fathers” in order to kill him.
So he walks around the timbers, searching for his father in order to get revenge. He bangs on the doors and spaces of log cabin, and if he procures it open, he’ll come in and murder everyone. Also, if you pass by his grave( across the riverbank, in the hymn) he’ll know and he’ll straw you through the trees.
It doesn’t seem as shocking in a city, but when you got separated from everyone in the woods and the sunlight is situate, or when you’re trying to sleep and the wind is banging against the door, it gets a lot scarier.
I still don’t like traversing creeks at night, even in a car over a bridge.
29 . On the Big Island of Hawaii there are the night marchers which are the haunts of the Kau soldiers who died in a volcanic eruption after a battle. There footprints are actually still preserved in Kilauea national park. I’ve had a lot of beings both regionals and parties from the mainland was just told of hearing a large group of men rallying and reciting late at night around Kau. You apparently smell sulfur and you have to get naked and lay on a fetal importance. I’ve discovered other people say you simply can’t look what i found and if you do you’ll die. I’ve had some friends tell me the issue is camping in a remote valley when they heard about twenty parties march by speaking Hawaiian and they reeked sulfur they didn’t realise any one since they were in a tent. Likewise had an age-old Hawaiian Uncle tell me when he was a teenager working on a ranch at night “hes seen” and purple daylight get from Kilauea to Moana loa and the next day Moana loa appeared for the first time in a while it was sometime in the 80 s.
30 . Kumiho is a very unstable, evil-minded heart. Us Koreans concluded, due to Taoist affects, that countless objects proliferated stronger as hour progressed. A fox, having lived for a thousand years, would gain nine tails, and ripen strong sufficient to masquerade itself as a human.
31 . Local legend from my region pretty common: You pick someone up, and they turn out to be a ghost.
Only problem is it was just a been known street out in the boonies( Simply happened on specific nights of the year .), and literally everyone eschewed it because virtually everyone knew a person who had picked the specter up at some extent. Something happened like she would start screaming and then vanish.
Then one day creation began on the road, because the place is so big beings from out of municipality started working on the road, and a news story “re coming out” about how a girl went in a vehicle with them and then vanished sometime through the night, just before screaming. The time of year wasn’t around Halloween or anything.
Literally when we were younger and out’ travelling bikes’ at night, one nighttime it got a little to late and we caught hell for it because my cousin lives with in about 15 -2 0 minutes of that region. Literally his mothers hopped our cases because of the ghost.
The road is gone now because quite literally no one used it.
32 . The Draug of Norwegian folklore. Norway is a country that has a whale coastline, with cold oceans and spate of gales, so naturally one of our creepiest fragments of expressions of folklore would be based around it.
The Draug is the spirit of a marine taken a number of commotions. Their ships were shattered, and their own bodies drew beneath the beckons, never to prepared foot on district again. Now they voyage within the storm in their ruined crafts, bodies cold and bloated, covered in seaweed and barnacles. If you find your jug trapped in a terrifying storm you might see one, and if you do you will never defined hoof on tract again. The Draug will come out of the cyclone, grab hold of you, and drag you into your watery grave.
33 . Dullahan are basically a mix of Grim Reaper and The headless Horsemen. They go around in cabs made of skin with wheel made of bone. Whenever they stop, someone dies. They come from Celtic myth I believe.
34 . Tailypo.
American folk legend about a monstrous cat-like man that stalks the lumbers at night. In the original myth, an aged Hermit hunter shoots it, misses, and instead culminates up shooting its tail off. Tailypo is startled and has managed to escape. Fulfilled with the posterior, the hunter makes it residence to obligate stew out of it. Afterwards that night Tailypo manages to break into his home. Tailypo prances on the man’s bed and asks where it’s “tailypo” is. The guy, frightened shitless, rebuts that he eat it. Tailypo is antagonized, and as an act of vengeance claws the man’s belly out and destroys his house to rubble.
In some children’s explanations the hunter simply loses his house, but most explanations include a hunting dog that also dies in the brawl. Other accounts too have the lore last-place for a few days rather than one nighttime, where the hunter is stalked by the animal each night, but the basic narration is still the same.
First time I heard it as a kid I was living in Alabama and it frightened the absolute shit out of me since my grandma’s mansion was right in front of a huge area of woods.
It’s easy to suspect repugnance and folklore legends from non-eu countries miles away, but the neighbourhood stuff junkies me out.
35 . I’m from northern Brazil near the Amazon river. My grandma always told us the history of the” Matita perreira “.
At night you can discover her whistling. She is like a witch, if she attains you in the Forrest she gonna beat you with a rope that she has. The Matita perreira is a regular human in daylight, she can be anyone from the village. It is ike a curse.
When you discover her whistle you can call her 3 times. You would scream” Matita come drink coffee” In the next morning she would see you in her human form to booze chocolate with you. So you could find out who she is.
But there is a catch. She would come real early in the morning. You should have chocolate and cigar for her, otherwise she would kill you. Everybody who would still be asleep when she arrives, would fall ill and die.
It was truly creepy for me growing up. But today I know that the whistle is a bird.
In Brazil we have a lot of those folklore stories.
36 . Our village has one called’ bilaas ‘. What originates it creepy-crawly is that she isn’t some blur, nameless being, people know women who are announced bilaas, they have normal houses and substance. So she’s literally living amongst you. She stalks parties at night, that’s when shes typically in a grisly chassis, paws turned backwards and shit. She gets sick a era before person in the vicinity is about to die, and then becomes very healthy the working day they do die. She can turn into different beasts and attack you while you’re alone. Then you will fall sick and if she visits you in her human pattern while you’re sick, you’ll die. And you can’t refuse her coming in Sounds silly, and it is, but it is still creepy.
37 . Scariest one I’ve heard in real life? The cave people. If you explore caves you’ve maybe heard them. The gentle little whisperings. They sound like the working group talking way off in the inscrutable darkness. I’ve heard a dozen different versions of what they are. Lost people, dwarves, evil spirits, or the logical justification :d rops of irrigate resonating and your psyche playing quirks. Either route, it’s a common joke that everyone is carry 3 the resources of flame so that it never travels out. Because if it does, they’ll “re coming” you. Or it’s because it’s true darkness down there and you’ll likely get lost and fall in a pit. It’s a privilege of move for young cavers to be frightened with the narratives by older veterinarians. Though I’ve met a few who really swear to having full a discussion with the spectres.
No matter how you totter it I’m a monstrous coward and still don’t like caving alone or getting too far away from my Group. Or turning my light out for more than a few minutes.
38 . I’m from the Black Forest, Germany, a region creepy by itself and with even more narratives of supernaturals, zombies, midgets, nymphs, tree intents, and all of that shit. A mas of widely known fairytales come from here and operas were inspired by the forest. The forest looks a lot like the appoint hints: it is so densely forested with fir and pine trees that sunlight rarely pierces through, which offsets it gape pitch-black . Nonetheless, when the sunshine radiances, it’s fucking beautiful.
One of the tales takes place at the Mummelsee( lake Mummel ), a lake high up on the mountain, surrounded by three cliffs and pine trees that always looms dark black.
According to legends a “king” lives under the ocean that attractiveness a little girl ino swimming and then dragging in the reservoir, delivering them to his country underwater. Some of those girls then later seemed as nymphs to then again lead hikers into their watery death.
There is some king of real rationale: people would soap in the pool, which is much deeper than they had reflected. Due to the cold water from the magnitudes some people perhaps drowned.
39 . An english hamlet near me has a large old mansion owned by a local lineage most of the chambers in the mansion haven’t been touched for years( due to the size of the house) and the family refuse to go into them, partly due to the fact that there’s not enough those living in the house and partly due to hauntings.
The house apparently dates back to before the english Civil War, and the family living there were a well-known Catholic family, so of course becomes a base for the king’s soldiers( Cavalier, I think they were announced ). The king “ve lost your” civil fight, and the family who live there say that they can listen the soldiers stomping all over the hallways at night, and seldom barking orders.
They likewise claim there’s a cluster of other phantoms, such as a disguised gal in pitch-black who only appears to you if you’re ill in that room, a librarian who will shush people talking in the library room( yes it’s that large-scale a home ), a young girl who you are unable see through some of the frosted glass doors in the house, slamming noises and screaming coming from the living room at night, and finally a boy dressed in black who strolls the gardens at midday. And these are just the few tales I remember.
Even if you don’t believe in the ghosts theres still tonnes of terrifying material about that mansion, such as insignificant chambers hidden everywhere for priests to hide in( known as priest loopholes ), a veiled area below the house that precedes out to a nearby river, and hidden alleys all around the house.
40 . A bald man who comes at night to set fire to corn provinces. You do not want him to get ahold of you, for he’ll destroy your throat. Parties in Mexico announce him El Pelon Quema Maiz.
41 . When I was little my Grandma told me Kappas would pull your nerves outta your butthole if you swam in the river too long. Legend from Japan plainly. Kappa are still creepy to me.
42 . Homem do Saco- or, in English, The Bag Man. Basically, it was a man that ranged through the streets looking for kids that were by themselves, with no adult supervision. Then, he settled them inside his bag and took them to his home so he could establish buttons and soap.
It’s a scary storey to continue children from playing in the street the whole daylight but somebody, was it creepy back in the working day!
