Malaysia, Vampires The Real Search For The Horrid Pontianak And Her Evil Blood Sucking Sisters and Brothers

Pontianak It is said in the undying tales that if you have your eyes wide open when a Pontianak is attacking you it will suck them whole out of your head. Then ferociously it sucks and sucks until it your brain seeps through the empty sockets for it to devour.

It is said in the undying tales that if you have your eyes wide open when a Pontianak is attacking you it will suck them whole out of your head. Then ferociously it sucks and sucks until it your brain seeps through the empty sockets for it to devour.

There are many Malay ghost myths, remnants of old animist beliefs that have been shaped by later Hindu, Buddhist and Muslim influences in the modern states of Indonesia, Malaysia and Brunei. Some ghost concepts such as the female vampires Pontianak and Penanggalan are shared throughout the region. Ghosts are a popular theme in modern Malaysian and Indonesian movies.

BY Andrea Chincuanco

The Pontianak

The Pontianak, Kuntilanak, Matianak or "Boentianak" (as known in Indonesia, sometimes shortened to just kunti) is a type of horrible vampire in Malay folklore and Indonesian mythology, similar as a ghost to the Langsuir. And certainly not to be confused with the evil "Pocong Ghost" which is arguably the second most popular ghost in all of Malaysia.

Pontianak by all accounts are thought to be that of young women who have unexpectedly just died during or from the pains of childbirth and became undead vampire like beings, thus seeking direct eternal revenge on men woman and animals and terrorizing whole villages, small towns and cities worldwide.

These she creatures and vampire legends often cross many boundaries and the creature herself is not just found in the Pacific region. The Pontianak has as many know made their home and are haunting such modern locations as Savannah, Georgia where tales of them haunting a family line for generations is not uncommon, San Francisco, California, where many say they have used old traditions to rid their neighborhood of them. New york city and many other cities and small towns the United States, Europe countries, Russian cities and even India all have tales of these creatures and their diabolical deeds. And as many believe to openly today possibly haunting the most scariest and haunted places of all four corners of the earth.

The name “pontianak” is reportedly a corruption of the Bahasa Indonesia “perempuan mati beranak”, or directly translated to say “she who has died horribly in childbirth”.

In folklore and many documented accounts of strange encounters with these beings or actually believed to have occurred to this day.

Pontianak's usually appears after it announces its presence through crying through the night with sounds that are an imitation of a babies screaming cries of great distress. In many eye witness encounters it is said that they assume the form of a beautiful naked lady and frightens to death or kills those unlucky enough to come too close.

Some say they have a powerfully hypnotic gaze that no man, beast or living thing can escape. The poor victim of it terrible attack is usually stunned and frozen where they stand. the creature then sets upon them sucking out their eyes. If your lucky and the creature has fed earlier or by some means you fight them off you then you might just escape with only losing an eye or two.

It is said disguises itself as a beautiful young woman mainly to attract its victim (usually male). Its presence can sometimes be detected by a nice floral fragrance identifiable as that of the Tuberose, followed by an awful stench of rotting death afterward.

Gauging how far away a pontianak is by its cries is very tricky. But many say they often sound like a favored pet or live stock hurt or crying helpless in the night.

The Malays and those that have been under attack by these she beasts state that if the cry is soft and low it means that the pontianak is near, and if it is loud then it must be far.

Many old tales of knowing when the she creature is near is that if you hear a dog howling, that means that the pontianak is far away. But if a dog is whining and cowering in great fear, that means the Pontianak is nearby. with stories of the strange powers the creatures possess large and small dogs are known to simply drop dead before your eyes suddenly on the spot if a “pontianak beast” that of a animal that died while in delivering it's young enters your house unseen.

Some tell of how a real Pontianak kills its victims other then sucking out a persons eyes. And if they the victim is asleep or can hold them tightly shut. This the numerous often told many tales tell is that the vampire creature begins by digging into their stomachs with its long sharp dirty and blood stained fingers and broken and chipped nails and by slowly devouring their internal organs. This is done as the victim looks on in shear horror as they slowly die writhing in intense pain. Pontianak's must feed in this manner alone in order to survive.

In some cases where the Pontianak desires revenge against a male individual, it rips out the sex organs with its hands and slowly chews on them as the victim looks on frozen. some time they leave them chewed and torn on the victims family or new girlfriends door step or window sill.

Many strange stories tell of the horrid she creature actually sucking it's victims organs out of a sleeping animal or persons through their anus. They are also known to chew off animals an peoples lips and tongues, noses, ears and always in this manor a rival woman's sexual organs. The poor woman or often left alive to suffer through out the rest of their lives.

The death found of a she beast or “pontianak” creatures attack scene is often very strange for their is never seen a single spilled drop of blood on the ground, clothing or bed sheets. And of course the body or animal carcass is completely drained of all it's blood and internal organs.

It is believed that Pontianak's locates it human prey by sniffing out dirty clothes or recently washed clean ones that are left outside to air dry. With it highly sensitive ability to smell out the scent of it's victims private parts and even tracking them down like a blood hound after sniffing their dirty underwear stains. For this reason, some Malays refuse to leave any article of clothing especially underwear outside of their residences overnight. Many resort to burning heavily soiled and stained underwear rather then just washing them or simply throwing them away.

If a young girl wishes to punish a unfaithful lover or husband they will hang his dirty stained underwear out at night near a banana tree or grove. The “pontianak” creature will descend upon them and search out the person they belonged to not resting until they find the person who they belonged to. The pontianak often carry with them or keep a collection of stained dirty men's underwear of past victims and usually in some cases make a nest of them. Fresh underwear they carry and sniff constantly then stretch their neck to the are to catch the mans sent.

If a man knows such a evil pontianak is on his trail he must wash out his anus, constantly wash his genitals and between his legs with a mixture of fresh boiled rice water, sambal and chicken broth. An enema is also advised with the same mixture or components. And all his old underwear and pants is to be burned immediately. Some spells state one might steal another mans or persons dirty underwear and pants and wear them in an attempt to confuse the creature afterwards.

Men often might steal a woman's underwear and wear them but without doing the cleansing which must be done several times daily the highly sensitive creatures nose will still lead them to their intended victim.

Some believe that the only way to protect yourself from the creatures attack is by having a sharp blessed by a holy person or metal object like a long double sharpened nail. This too by some actual accounts helps them fend off potential attacks by Pontianak's, the nail being used to plunge a hole at the back of the Pontianak's neck. It is believed that this will turn the Pontianak back instantly into a beautiful woman from it's evil form, until the nail is pulled off again. The Indonesian twist on this is to plunge the nail into the apex of the head of the kuntilanak. But yet even this does not kill the creature for many will tell you she is not a creature that can be easily dies or can be destroyed unless you use magical means or banish them to another location. Or in many cases make them 100% human again.

The Pontianak can be controlled if you know the old secrets and many tales that are told that said these cures and ways of dispatching them is associated with banana trees, and its spirit and body is said to reside in them during the day rather then sleeping in a stolen coffin or grave. Sunlight has no effect on them and sometimes they can be seen sleeping peacefully usually covered with live large blood filled ticks and leaches hanging from their naked bodies under the trees.

Any location where banana trees grow is a possible location of a these vampires sleeping nest during the day. Often if a woman is buried and a banana tree sprouts atop the grave everyone knows this is where the creature is hiding or was once buried before it left its grave to suck out the organs of the living.

The Langsuir

Langsuir is a strange version of Pontianak, popular in Malaysia as one of the deadliest vampires in Malay folklore nothing to take lightly.

Very strange and completely different from the pontianak, which always appears as a beautiful woman to devour the victim, langsuir possess the victim and suck their blood from the inside, slowly killing them. Many state that the creature will thrust it's head up a mans anus and start sucking or chewing the persons organs for over a three to four day period. They are also known to shove their heads inside of 6 to nine mont pregnant woman's vagina and only to devour the unborn child from a woman's womb as she sleeps. The poor victim often awakes to find she is no longer swollen or pregnant and all signs of her condition are completely gone.

It is believed that langsuir are women who suffered from laboring sickness (meroyan) and which resulted in the death of both mother and child in childbirth. Such a woman would turn in to a langsuir 40 days after her death.

Described as being the most awful of hideous, scary, vengeful and furious, the langsuir is further characterized as having orange, yellow or blood red glowing eyes, sharp long dirty claws, long un kept hair, a and often appear wearing green or white shrouds. A rotting torn or scar filled face with eight long fangs on the top and bottom of their lips or poking through them which is often the case, and the ability to fly short distances like chicken. To escape you they might fly for a distance of 10- 20 feet then land and take to the air again and again to out run you.

It is also believed that the langsuir has a large anus looking hole behind its neck which a snake like or intestine appendages with nine long curling teeth and a long tongue that is thrust out of and so used to suck your blood. If one puts the Langsuir's hair wound around a stick in this hole or cuts their claws with a knife, Langsuir will become human again no matter how long they have been dead and lead a normal life for many years after. To prevent women from turning into langsuir, glass beads and broken blue and red glass are put in the corpses mouth. nd the body cannot be buried on any day except for Monday and only at 8:am.

Penanggalan

Penanggalan Malaysia, Vampire

The Penanggalan or `Hantu Penanggal` is a peculiar variation of the vampire myth that apparently began in the Malay Peninsula, or Balan-balan in Sabah. Also the Manananggal, a similar creature of Filipino folklore. "Penanggal" or "Penanggalan"' literally means "detach", "to detach", "remove" or "to remove". Both terms—Manananggal and Penanggal—may carry the same meaning due to both languages being grouped or having a common root under the Austronesian language family, though the two creatures are culturally distinct in appearance and behavior.

Unlike Manananggal, all Penanggal are females and there is no variation in Malaysian folklore to suggest a Penanggal to be male. Another notable difference between a Penanggal and Manananggal is that a Penanggal detaches only her head with her lungs, stomach and intestines attached while leaving the body before coming back and soaking her innards in a pre-prepared container filled with vinegar to fit back into the body.

Additionally, unlike the Manananggal which uses a proboscis-like tongue, a Penanggal is commonly depicted as having fangs. The number of fangs varies from one region to another, ranging from two like the Western vampire to a mouthful of fangs.

The Balinese of Indonesia also have myth of a similar creature with almost exact features called Leyak.

According to the folklore of that region, the Penanggalan is a detached female head that is capable of flying about on its own. As it flies, the stomach and entrails dangle below it, and these organs twinkle like fireflies as the Penanggalan moves through the night.

Due to the common theme of Penanggal being the result of active use of black magic or supernatural means, a Penanggal cannot be readily classified as a classical undead being. The creature is, for all intent and purposes, a living human being during daytime (much like the Japanese Nukekubi) or at any time when it does not detach itself from its body.

In Malaysian folklore, a Penanggal may be either a beautiful old or young woman who obtained her beauty through the active use of black magic, supernatural, mystical, or paranormal means which are most commonly described in local folklores to be dark or demonic in nature. Another cause where one becomes a Penanggal in Malaysian folklore is due to the result of a powerful curse or the actions of a demonic force, although this method is less common than the active use of black magic abovementioned.

The Penanggalan is usually a female midwife who has made a pact with the devil to gain supernatural powers. It is said that the midwife has broken a stipulation in the pact not to eat meat for 40 days; having broken the pact she has been forever cursed to become a bloodsucking vampire/demon.

The midwife keeps a vat of vinegar in her house. After detaching her head and flying around in the night looking for blood the Penanggalan will come home and immerse her entrails in the vat of vinegar in order to shrink them for easy entry back into her body. One version of the tale states that the Penanggal was once a beautiful woman or priestess, who was taking a ritual bath in a tub that once held vinegar. While bathing herself and in a state of concentration or meditation, a man entered the room without warning and startled her.

The woman was so shocked that she jerked her head up to look, moving so quickly as to sever her head from her body, her organs and entrails pulling out of the neck opening. Enraged by what the man had done, she flew after him, a vicious head trailing organs and dripping venom. Her empty body was left behind in the vat. The Penanggal, thus, is said to carry an odor of vinegar with her wherever she flies, and returns to her body during the daytime, often posing as an ordinary mortal woman. However, a Penanggal can always be told from an ordinary woman by that odor of vinegar.

The most common remedy prescribed in Malaysian folklore to protect against a Penanggal attack is to scatter the thorny leaves of a local plant known as Mengkuang which would either trap or injure the exposed lungs, stomach and intestines of the Penanggal as it flies in search of its prey.

These thorns, on the vine, can also be looped around the windows of a house in order to snare the trailing organs. This is commonly done when a woman has just given birth. However, this practice will not protect the infant if the Penanggal decides to pass through the floorboards. In some instances, it is said that months before birth, family members of the pregnant women would plant pineapples under the house (traditional Malay houses are built on stilts and thus have a lot of room underneath). The prickly fruit and leaves of the pineapple would deter the penanggalan from entering through the floorboards. Once trapped, a Penanggalan who attacks the house can then be killed with parangs or machetes.

As an extra precaution, the pregnant woman can keep scissors or betel nut cutters under her pillow, as the Penanggalan is afraid of these items. Another way of killing the vampire is for some brave men to spy on the Penanggalan as it flies around in the night. Midwives who become Penanggalans at night appear as normal women in the daytime. They, however, can be identified as Penanggalans by the way they behave.

When meeting people they will usually avoid eye contact and when performing their midwife duties they may be seen licking their lips, as if relishing the thought of feeding on the pregnant woman's blood when night comes. The men should find out where the Penanggalan lives.

Once the Penanggal leaves its body and is safely away, it may be permanently destroyed by either pouring pieces of broken glass into the empty neck cavity, which will sever the internal organs of the Penanggal when it reattaches to the body; or by sanctifying the body and then destroying it by cremation or by somehow denying the Penanggal from reattaching to its body upon sunrise. Another non-lethal way to get rid of penanggalan is to turn over the body, so that when the head attached back it will be attached reverse side, thereby revealing to everyone what she really is.

The Penanggalan's victims are traditionally pregnant women and young children. Like a banshee who appears at a birth rather than a death, the Penanggalan perches on the roofs of houses where women are in labour, screeching when the child is born. The Penanggalan will insert a long invisible tongue into the house to lap up the blood of the new mother. Those whose blood the Penanggalan feeds upon contract a wasting disease that is almost inescapably fatal. Furthermore, even if the penanggalan is not successful in her attempt to feed, anyone who is brushed by the dripping entrails will suffer painful open sores that won't heal without a bomoh's help.

A Penanggal is said to feed on human blood or human flesh although local folklore (including its variations) commonly agrees that a Penanggal prefers the blood of a newborn infant, the blood of woman who recently gave birth or the placenta (which is devoured by the Penanggal after it is buried). All folktales also agree that a Penanggal flies as it searches and lands to feed. One variation of the folklore however claims that a Penanggal is able to pass through walls. Other, perhaps more chilling, descriptions say that the Penanggal can ooze up through the cracks in the floorboards of a house, rising up into the room where an infant or woman is sleeping. Sometimes they are depicted as able to move their intestines like tentacles.

ASWANG FLYING IN THE NIGHT OVER MANILA

 

Soucouyants

Soucouyants belong to a class of spirits called Jumbies, Colobies or JUJU beast.

Some believe that soucouyants were brought to the Caribbean from European countries in the form of French vampire-myths. These beliefs intermingled with those of enslaved Africans.

In the French West Indies, specifically the island of Guadeloupe, the Soukougnan or Soukounian is a person able to shed his or her skin to turn into a vampire fireball or plasma. In general these figures can be anyone, not only old women, although some affirm that only women could become Soukounian, because only female breasts could contain the creature's wings.

The soucouyant or soucriant in Caribbean and specifically Dominican, Trinidadian and Guadeloupean folklore, and aka Ole-Higue or Loogaroo in other Caribbean folklore, is a creature equivalent of a vampire that lives by day as an old woman at the end of the village.

By night, however, she strips off her wrinkled skin, puts it in a mortar, and flies in the shape of a fireball through the darkness, looking for a victim. Still in the shape of a fireball, the soucouyant enters the home of her victim through the keyhole or any crack or crevice. If the soucouyant draws out too much blood from her victim, it is believed that the victim will die and become a soucouyant herself, or else perish entirely, leaving her killer to assume her skin. In order to destroy the soucouyant, coarse salt must be placed in the mortar containing the soucouyant's skin. She then cannot put the skin back on and will perish. The soucouyant practices witchcraft, voodoo, and black magic. Belief in soucoyants is still preserved to some extent in Trinidad.

Jumbies are imagined as dark. This phenomenon is widely believed in by people in the English-speaking Caribbean states that were colonized by the British and which practiced "Obeah", a form of mystical wizardry that encompassed traditional African beliefs merged with Western European, primarily Anglican, images and beliefs concerning the dead.

Various islands including Antigua and Barbuda in the east to Jamaica in the north and as far south as Trinidad have had a long held set of folklore that include the jumbie. In the folk religion of Montserrat, a jumbie is a ghost, or spirit of the dead. Jumbies are said to possess humans during ceremonies called jumbie dances, which are accompanied by jumbie drums. Jumbies receive numerous small offerings from Montserratians, such as a few drops of rum or food; they are also the subject of numerous superstitions.

Four couples perform a set of five progressively quicker quadrilles during the jumbie dance, switching out with other couples until someone is eventually possessed by a jumbie.

Now, different cultures have a varying tales of the conception of jumbies. But the general idea is that people who have been evil during their lives are destined to become instruments of evil (jumbie) in death.

The spirit separates from the body three days after death, and so the havoc begins. Jumbies can shape-shift, usually taking the form of a dog, pig or more likely a cat. So heed warnings about playing with random animals.

There are many recommended ways to avoid or escape jumbie encounters, such as:

  • leaving a pair of shoes outside your door; jumbies don't have feet and would spend the entire night trying on the shoes to get them to fit before moving onto you.
  • leaving a heap of sand or salt or rice outside your door; jumbies are compelled to count every grain before the sun rises.
  • when coming home late at night, walk backwards so that the jumbie would be unable to follow you inside.
  • if one is being chased by a jumbie, cross a river, as they cannot follow over water
  • Leave a rope with many knots by your door step. Jumbies love to try to untie knots, so they will forget about you while trying to untie the knots.

Backoo

Backoo may actually be derived from a Nigerian Yoruba entity called Abiku. The Abiku is the spirit of a baby that has died before being named. They are usually represented by small wooden statues in Yoruba homes as a form of appeasement to the spirit of the deceased. The Guyanese Backoo may actually be derived from these statues. Guyanese Backoos are described as short men with large eyes, long arms and legs, and most conspicuously an absence of kneecaps.

A spirit of small stature that pelts stones at houses and moves objects within a house. He is supposed to live on banana and milk. Stories abound of the existence of backoos in Georgetown and other areas in Guyana. The legend could have come from Suriname. The spirit is said to be trapped in a corked bottle unless released. Backoos are active mainly at night; it is said that a satisfied backoo will answer the wishes of its owner.

Chudail/Churile

Chudail/Churile, spirit of a woman who dies in childbirth, leaving her baby alive. Restless, owing to the separation from her baby, the choorile roams at night, crying mournfully. When people cry all the time, or run around crazy like something is lost, they are usually called "churile", although only most older generation Guyanese people do this. The word chudail/churile means witch in Urdu and Hindi.

Massacooramaan

The Massacooramaan, also known as Sea Master, is a huge, hairy, man-like creature that lives in rivers in the interior. The name is derived from the chapters of redemption. This beast is almost untamed-looking, with the appearance of a wild Berhane, but don't be fooled: It is a fearsome thing that capsizes small boats and eats the occupants.

Moon-Gazer

The Moon-Gazer is a Jumbee that appears to be a tall muscular man. It stands with its legs on either side of the road, hands on hips, staring at the moon. If one alerts it to your presence it will suck out your brain through its palm. Also if someone walks between its legs that are spread apart, the Moon Gazer will crush that person by bringing its legs together.

Canaima

Canaima, the Amerindian version of a werewolf. It is usually described as an Amerindian man with the ability to change himself into a Jaguar. Canaimas can be good or bad depending on the person and are to be feared and respected regardless.

Bush Dai Dai

Bush Dai-Dai is a Guyanese spirit of Amerindian and Afro-Guyanese heritage The Bush Dai Dai usually takes the form of a beautiful Buffiana woman who comes to the camps of Guyanese miners. After entering the camp and having sexual intercourse with the miners the young woman usually changes into a wild animal and eats her victims as they sleep.

"THE REAL GHOST AND STRANGE CRYPTIDS OF THE PHILIPPINES MAKES IT ...

Western observers who began to look at the magical/religious world of Malaysians in the nineteenth-century discovered belief in several vampirelike beings, somewhat analogous to the lamiai of the mythology of Greece These have survived to this day in spite of the overlay of Hindu and Islamic thought that has come to dominate the religious life of the peninsula. Vampires still inhabit the very lively world of the average Malaysian.

The Vampire in Malaysian Folklore: Closely related to the Greek lamiai were the langsuyar and the pontianak The former was described as a bansheelike flying demon. The original langsuyar was a woman of extreme beauty who bore a stillborn baby. When told of the condition of the child, she recoiled from the shock. Suddenly, she clapped her hands and flew away into a nearby tree. She was seen from time to time and identified by her green robe, her long fingernails (considered a mark of beauty in Malaysian society), and her ankle-length black hair. The hair concealed an opening in her neck through which she sucked the blood of children. The first langsuyar then gave way to groups of similar beings. Later langsuyars were flesh eaters with a particular fondness for fish (a staple of the Malaysian diet).

If a woman died either in childbirth or in the 40 days immediately following (during which time she was considered unclean), it was believed she might become a langsuyar. To prevent that from occurring, her family placed glass beads in her mouth (which stopped any bansheelike shrieks), and to prevent her from flying, eggs were placed under the arms and a needle in the palm of each hand. However, it was also possible to tame a langsuyar by capturing it, cutting off its hair and nails, and stuffing them into the hole in the neck. In that case, the langsuyar became domesticated and could live in human society somewhat normally. Reports have been collected claiming that such langsuyars came into villages, married, and bore children. However, their new life ended usually at a village party when they began to dance. Suddenly, they would revert to their more spiritlike form and fly off to the jungle, leaving husband and child behind.

The origin of the pontianak was directly linked to that of the langsuyar-it was the creature's stillborn child. It was believed to take the form of a night owl. To prevent a deceased baby from becoming a pontianak, it was treated somewhat like its mother, with beads, eggs, and needles. As with the langsuyar, there were specific words to be spoken when "laying" a possible pontianak.

Walter William Skeat (Malay Magic 1900, 1966), the main authority on Malaysian mythology, noted some confusion between the langsuyar and the pontianak. Both could appear as a night owl, both were addressed in invocations as if they were the same, and both mother and child were treated alike to prevent them from becoming a vampire after their death. This confusion has been somewhat cleared up by noting that in parts of Malaysia and throughout much of Indonesia, in places such as Java what Skeat described as the langsuyar, the female vampire, was called a pontianak.

The penanggalan was a third vampirelike creature in Malaysian folklore. According to tradition, it originated with a woman in the midst of performing dudok bertapa, a penance ceremony. She was sitting in a large wooden vat used for holding the vinegar derived from the sap of the palm tree. In the midst of her ceremony, a man found her and asked her what she was doing. Startled, she moved to leave, and did so with such force that her head separated from her body, and with the entrails of her stomach trailing behind, she flew off into a nearby tree. That severed head with the dangling stomach attached below it became an evil spirit. It appears on the rooftops of the homes where children are being born. It whines a high-pitched sound and tries to get to the child to suck its blood.

Writing in the early 1800s, P. J. Begbie described the penanggalan as an evil spirit that possessed a woman and turned her into a sorcerer. When it wished to travel, it would detach its head and, with its entrails trailing behind, fly off in pursuit of food in the form of the blood of both the living and dead. He also told the story of a man with two wives, one of dark and one of light skin. He was told that they were both penanggalans. The man did not believe it, so to test them he watched one night and saw them leave to feed. He then switched their bodies. When they returned, they attached their heads to the wrong body. When the king was presented with this irrefutable proof of their evil nature, both were executed.

An alternate version of the story believed that the penanggalan originated from a woman who had been using magic arts and finally learned how to fly. At that time her head and neck were separated from her body, and with her intestines dangling, she took up her abode in a tree. From there she flew from house to house to suck the blood of not only babies but also mothers giving birth. To protect the birthing site, the leaves of the jeruju (a kind of thistle) were hung around the house and thorns stuck in any blood that was spilled. As might be expected, blood and other juices dripped from the dangling intestines, and should such drippings fall on anyone, they would immediately fall ill.

Two other blood-drinking entities, the polong and the pelesit, were closely related in Malaysian lore. The former appeared in the form of a very small female creature (about one inch in height) and the latter as a house cricket. The polong operated somewhat like a witch's familiar in traditional Western mythology. It could be attracted by gathering the blood of a murder victim in a bottle over which a seven-day (some say fourteen-day) ritual was performed. Then one waited for the sound of young birds chirping, a sign that the polong had taken up residence in the bottle. The polong was fed by cutting a finger, inserting it in the bottle, and allowing the polong to suck the blood. (In the West, the witch's familiar was said to suckle from a hidden protuberance on the witch's body-a witch's teat). In return for a daily supply of blood, the polong was available to do a variety of tasks, including attacking one's enemies.

If one was attacked by a polong, which was signaled by various kinds of wild ravings, wise men were called in to exorcise it and to attempt to discover who sent it to torment the victim. Deaths were occasionally attributed to the attack of a polong who remained unexorcised.

The pelesit generally accompanied the polong in its travels and arrived before it. If the polong was sent to attack someone, the pelesit would first attempt to enter the body of the victim and, in a sense, prepare the way for the polong.

Walter William Skeat reported a rather gruesome method of creating a pelesit. The potential owner dug up a recently deceased infant. The infant's corpse was carried to an ant hill. After a while the child would cry out and at that moment its tongue would have to be bitten off. The tongue was then dipped in specially prepared coconut oil and buried for three nights. After the third night the tongue turned into a pelesit.

Among the many peoples in the very diverse population of Malaysia were the Chewong. They possessed their own mythology, which included the existence of many spirits collectively called the bas. There were various kinds of bas, some of which under different circumstances attacked humans. The usual food of the bas was a ruwai, roughly translated as soul or life or vitality. Their preferred prey was the wild pig, and the bas set invisible traps to snare the pig's ruwai. Sometimes a human ruwai was caught in the trap, and in such a case the bas would eat the human spirit/soul. The bas might also encounter a human ruwai when it was traveling about during a person's dreams. Bas usually did not attack humans or approach human places of habitation. They knew fire as a sign of human presence, and a person in the woods who encountered a bas could build a fire and the bas would depart.

On rare occasions, bas were thought to attack humans. They attacked in different ways, although most sought only the ruwai. For example, the eng banka, the ghost of a dead dog that inhabited swamp areas, would steal a ruwai. If it was not recovered, the victim died within a few days; someone who suddenly became ill and died a few days later was seen as the victim of an eng banka. Quite different was the maneden, which lived in the wild pandanus plant. It attacked humans who cut the plant in which it resided by biting them and sucking their blood. It attached itself to the elbow of men or the breast nipples of women. To stop the attack the person had to give the bas a substitute, such as the oily nut from the hodj nut tree. Thus, the attack of the eng banka was a variety of psychic vampirism and that of the maneden a more literal vampiric attack.

The Modern Malaysian Vampire: It was not until after World War II that the film industry (always under strict British control) began to develop. Shaw Brothers, a firm based in Hong Kong, established Malay Film Productions in 1947. It was soon joined by Catay-Keris Productions. In their drive to compete with Western films, which dominated the market, the Malaysians sought particularly Malaysian themes and locales for their films. The Malaysian vampire thus entered the film world, one of the first such films being Pontianak in 1956. In this film, Maria Menado played a hunchbacked young woman made beautiful by magic. After her husband was bitten by a snake and she sucked his blood to get the poison out, she was turned into a vampire, the pontianak.

The vampire movies drew on the broad use of the term pontianak throughout Indonesia and always pictured the vampire as a young and beautiful woman. The stories told in the movies were made plausible to viewers by the numerous reports from Malaysians who claimed to actually know a vampire who was living a more or less normal life as a wife and mother. During the late 1950s and 1960s, Catay-Keris produced a series of six movies featuring a pontianak. Few of the Malaysian vampire films were released to theaters in the West, but some are currently available on video.

        Far more than a book that contains a number of frightening true accounts and a collection of truly magnificent original art,  Real Vampires, Night Stalkers and Creatures from the Darkside expands the definition of the vampire to include parasitic entities that enter our reality from the far reaches of the multidimensional universe to possess their victims and to feed upon their life essence and their very soul.

        Real Vampires are not the undead, returning from crypt or cemetery plot to steal blood, the vital fluid of existence from the living. Although they may look like us—and when it serves their purpose they may skillfully impersonate us in order to deceive and to prey upon us—they have never been human.

        Real vampires are parasitic, shapeshifting entities that feed upon the energy, the life force,  and the souls of humans.

        From whatever dimension of time and space they may have originated, real vampires may be compared to an ancient, insidious virus that first infects, then controls its host body, causing it, in turn, to possess other victims, to form secret societies, blood cults, and hideous rituals of human sacrifice.

        Regardless of the seductive aura of the vampire depicted in contemporary novels, films, and television series, none of these romantic transformations of an ancient menace to humankind portray real vampires. While the vampiric virus may infest handsome men and beautiful women, none of those infected have superhuman powers. Real vampires and those whom they possess are loathsome slashers, rippers, and murderers who do not promise immortality with their sensual “bite,” only a painful death.

        Real vampires and their human hosts can walk freely in the light of day. The rays of the rising sun do not send them scurrying back to their coffins.  Crucifixes do not cause real vampires to shrink back in fear.

        Real vampires are the spawn of ancient entities such as Lilith, the seductive fallen angel, or of other paraphysical beings—such as the Jinn, the Cacodaemons, the Raskshasas, and the Nephilim—who have traversed the boundaries of time and space to prey upon humankind.

          While this book focuses on the supernatural, the multidimensional, and the paraphysical beings who have interacted with our species since prehistoric times, we also visit the contemporary vampire community living among us today.  Leading members of the vampire community share with us the basic findings and the extensive demographics of the Vampire and Energy Workers Research Survey for 2009.  These "vampires" are not murderers, sociopaths, or supernatural beings. They are a subgroup within our society who are perhaps unique, but who are not after our blood.

     Real vampires are immortal, and when the spirit parasite that has invaded a human body has tired of that fleshly residence, it dispassionately discards its temporarydwelling and possesses another, abandoning its former host to death and decay, rather than to an existence of attractive eternal youth and everlasting sexual prowess.

        Although these entities cannot be killed, they can be driven away from their potential victims. We can resist them. We can become immune to their power. We can fight them and defeat them.

Real Vampires, Night Stalkers and Creatures from the Darkside (Paperback) BY Brad Steiger (Author)

This great new book is soon to be released it has already become the #1 Bestseller (See Top 100 Occultism Bestsellers) at Tower Books

AND NUMBER 1 HERE AT OUR

HAUNTED AMERICA TOURS BESTSELLER'S LIST!

Availability: Pre-Order: This Paperback is scheduled to be released on September 1, 2009.

A chilling chronicle of the often ignored history of vampirism as it has surfaced repeatedly in news articles, historical accounts, and first person interviews, this shocking account of occultist rituals and the inhuman forces that influence them shines a light on the horrifying truth. Revealing that real vampires are not immortal, do not have fangs or sleep in coffins, and have no fear of sunlight or crucifixes, the examination dispels many myths but also confirms the truth behind several traits of real vampires, such as the insatiable thirst for blood and the dream of an eternal soul. Complete with 30 spine-tingling tales of the hideous wraiths and creatures that lurk in shadow, this fascinating collection includes the stories of the Mexican prostitute who mesmerized an entire village, convincing them she was an Incan goddess who required human sacrifice for her magic; the three teenagers who left a trail across the South as they conducted blood-drinking rituals with animals; and the mysterious Lady in Black who draws psychic energy from men who dare approach her as she wanders through city streets and parks.

How can you say ghost exist unless you try to experience it yourself? If you are not willing to try, then you have no factual basis for your conclusion. To put this another way, don't decide it before you try it. All beliefs come from a experience. Many believe people for their word, others not so trusting simply need to be shown. And still more do not believe what they see even if it shoved in their face.
