Abstract

That monster of Philippine lower mythology, the aswang, is possessed of a career as varied as her aspect. The years have not withered her, nor custom stated her cruel variety. She is seductive: a vampire who craves blood; terrifying: a viscera-sucker who consumes internal organs; confounding: a werebeast who transforms into pig, dog, cat, and human; horrific: a witch who causes illness; disgusting: a ghoul who preys on corpses and laps up the phlegm of the sick (Ramos xvii-xxxii).
