  • The langsuir is a female demon, common in Malaysian myth, who appears either as a predatory night owl or as a seductive woman . . .The langsuir should be caught, then her overlong fingernails should be cut off and her thick hair should be stuffed into a hole in her neck. In this way, the langsuir will be completely tamed.

    The origin of the langsuir is a woman who has died from grief after giving birth to a stillborn child. If you don't stop her, she will drink the blood of babies through the hole in her neck.
