jin mati anak

The deadly Still-birth Demon. This hantu, the more dangerous kind has long nails (like claws), is covered from head to foot with long bushy hair, and goes lolling its long tongue out "like a thirsty dog." Sometimes it enters people's bodies, and then they go mad; at others it enters into water, and no harm is done. This demon sprang from a woman who died in giving birth to her youngest child.
