A type of Vampire from Trinidad and Tobago in the Caribbean. The Sukuyan leaves her skin in her home and goes from house to house to try to enter. She will request either salt or matches to try to get in. Once let in she reveals her true monstrous self and sucks the blood out of everyone in the household. The only way to defeat her is to hang a mirror on every door and window of the house. Above each mirror one must mark a cross of Christ. When she sees herself in the mirror with a cross above, she will become terrified and leave immediately never to return. However this does not kill the Sukuyan and she will try to enter the house of others. One other method to defeat the Sukuyan is to leave broom upside down behind the door which would take away her powers.

Did you find Sukuyan interesting? If you are skilled in art, then why not draw a scary or actioned-packed drawing of the Deadly Sukuyan and send it to this website. Could such tales of recent sightings be simply false? Perhaps there is some truth in these serpents, Bigfoots, spirits and other creatures of the paranormal. Watch National Geographic's Paranormal: Bigfoot and decide for yourself. And if you're that way inclined with Bigfoot check him out in the horror movie Night of the Demon (1980). Oh but its not Bigfoot but a Fearsome Critter? Well take a look at them in Fearsome Critters by Richard Svensson or watch the Walt Disney film Paul Bunyan (1958) for some lumberjack folklore. Other contemporary mythical animals appear in the video game Red Dead Redemption: Undead Zombie Nightmare.
