4 Manananggal

Manananggal is a mythical creature from Filipino mythology.

Manananggal is depicted as a hideous woman with bat wings. At day, she appears as a normal human, but at night, she shows her true form and hunts for a fetus' heart and blood. She goes to a house, separates her body, and seeks for a pregnant woman. Once she finds one, she'll use her long proboscis-like tongue to suck in the fetus heart and blood by shoving it into the pregnant woman's mouth. There's a way to repel the Manananggal: sprinkle salt on the vulnerable lower body. She won't be able to reconnect and will burn in the sunlight.
