Another new mythological creature for me, the Pontianak is the spirit/ghost of a woman who died in childbirth or pregnant from Indonesian and Malay mythology. There are other variations with her origin.
It takes the form of a woman with long black hair and a pale complexion with red eyes. It lures men to their deaths in a pretty gruesome manner, she eviscerates them with her sharp fingernails.
She’s been the subject of a lot of Asian horror films!
