yup,i also like enjoying horror movie.but absolutely alone.i'v got to need people accompany.to be honest ,i never believe ghost exist in the earth.but full of extremely strange things happens each day,even the explanation from science won't work.and then ghost theory comes to them. that's the reason why superstition exists ,at least i think. buddies ,enjoy happy times,far away from horror,kindly wish everyone happy.

Hi there, whenever we go on vacations in my grandparents' hometown we always would like to hear stories about these folkores. My favorite would be the "kapre" or the smoking giant atop on a large tree. Some neighbors would say there's such a creature near the house because of the giant mango tree. And there are others who tell they hear something strange inside the house nowadays because no one's residing in there now except that somebody a relative maintains the cleanliness. I would say then that it's much better if there's something strange going on inside and at night there's a kapre so no one would dare enter the house and steal things LOL They say it's my late grandfather visiting the house and doing some tinkering.

not really because there are plenty of us who go there all at once and I think I saw something white pass by twice for two nights. and some of my cousins saw and hear ghost or something.It's the story telling afterwards that makes your hair stand.

We live in Mindanao and we all those stories. One of my all time favorites. From those monsters up to Blair Witch Projects. But it never fails to give me the creeps. Happy Halloween.

It's really nice to hear stories like that but sometimes storytellers are exaggerated with their stories and experiences. I heard stories about "aswang", white lady, "manananggal", "santilmo", "kapre", "engkanto" and many others. But I only have experienced seeing one that is the "santilmo", it was really scary to see a ball of fire forming then exploding until it vanishes in the air, then it will form again, though it was afar yet too scary. I don't know how to explain it.

Me too, i am interested in stories like that. I came from a family with a lot of stories about black magic and anting-anting when I was a little kid. At first, I do not believe them but now I do. Happy holloween!!!

I too when I was young, did enjoy hearing these stories about aswangs and manananggals. I think what fascinated me as a young boy was the thing this creatures can do to really create the fear within us. But so far, I haven't seen one although way back when I was in the provinces there was news about a manananggal roaming around our city in the province back then. I haven't seen anything but purely rumors about them roaming around the city.
