Did you find Kuntianak interesting? If you are skilled in art, then why not draw a frightening and terrifying image of the Haunting Kuntianak and send it to this website. African folklore has lots of popular mythical creatures. Watch The Dead (2010) to see African Zombies in action (the original Zombies). you can also get into the annual South African Horrorfest to see African myth and horror at its best for films of Vampires spirits and more. And if you really love your horror there's the Werewolf horror film Hyenas (2010). And for the kids there's great illustrative books like The Barefoot Book of African Tales and The Clever Rat and Other African Tales found on Amazon.
