Halloween is just around the corner and tales of fright are starting to be told. Luckily for us, Pinoys know a thing or two about horror with probably as many folklore creatures as there are provinces. From the aswang, manananggal, to the tikbalang and kapre, engkanto, mangkukulam, to the hunyango, multo and more, figments of the Pinoy imagination run wild.

We asked some folks around Manila to tell tales of their own hair-raising moments – in schools, buildings and lone walks at night – of run ins with creatures and creepy encounters.

Watch at your own risk. Folklore usually has a spine-chilling real-life basis, after all.
