FOLKLORE




This creature is based on a Filipino myth about a female who is beautiful during the day, and then at night she turns into this bat-winged creature whose lower half is separated from her top, her entrails dragging from her core. I don't remember the name of the black and white movie that I saw when I was a child, but in it the good guys placed cloves of garlic on the lower half that the creature left behind. It kept the creature from ever forming whole again. So the lesson here is to always have large quantities of garlic around - especially if you are Filipino!
