Even the name sounds fake. If it was some type of vampire like creature i dont think that guy would be THAT close to them. I think its all a bunch of BS.

Malaysia has a lot of weird stories. Seems like a new story every week or so.

Hey, I'm going to buy some creepy taxidermist's nightmare from some disreputable outlet and sit around waiting for it to move. Who's with me?

Wow! Those Jenglots are some ugly critters. They're like leeches from Hell or something! Come to think of it, they look like props from the movie series "Tremors" or "Aliens". Hmmm no it looks more like Mr. Hankey and his family, pity the poor fool who has to enter the room first. Reference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mr._Hankey

A Jenglot: a creature of Indonesian mythology. Nowadays carved out of wood, dressed in animal skin and hair to earn a buck or two from gullible Europeans, Australians and Americans. New Age people are there prime target; these people will just believe anything that fits into their daydreams. If I were an Indonesian guy with not much income, you bet I would do the same.
