Manananggal: The Flying, Disembodied, Blood Sucking Nightmare

One of the Phillipine’s most dangerous and bizarre aswangs, the viscera-sucking, self-segmenting monster hunts at night. A beautiful woman by day, this creature detaches its upper torso and grows wings after sunset. You might never have heard of this monster before, but after this episode, I can promise you’ll know everything you need..and probably some stuff you didn’t want to know. An intestine-dangling nightmare woman with a taste for fetuses sounds like absolutely madness, but can she teach us about the history of social and religious power in Filipino culture? You might be surprised by the answer.
