A kuntilanak is a type of female vampire in Malay folklore - usually a woman who has died during childbirth only to rise from the dead to seek revenge and terrorize local neighborhoods.
According to legend, a kuntilanak often appears as a beautiful woman, usually accompanied by the strong scent of frangipani. This naturally helps her to attract unsuspecting male suitors who are then killed when she metamorphosises into a hideous vampire (kuntilanak).
To see more, make sure you catch the film Kuntilanak which is now taking the capital Jakarta by storm.
And starring the sexy Ratu Felisha in a shower scene (well it’s a bit blurry really cos she is behind glass unfortunately) and ex-P'boy starlet Julia Estelle it’s a film not to be missed...
