In the Philippines, we have a score of creatures of the night from the tales of our ancestors.
Aswang - a ghoul, or something else. This one has different versions. Commonly depicted as a human by day but becomes a changeling who can turn into an animal at night. One version says that the term Aswang is a conjunction of the two words 'aso -dog and 'katawan' body. It is said they go out at night to look for young children to eat.
Mananangal- a variation or a different type of the aswang. This one would leave the lower half of its body on the ground, while the upper body will grow bat-like wings and fly. They hunt for pregnant women. And from the roof would let its elongated tongue suck the fetus from the belly of its victim.
Kapre - a tree-dwelling giant often depicted to have dark skin, hairy and often smokes gigantic tobacco.
Tiyanak - this creature of the night is said to be the vengeful spirits of unborn children who were victims of abortion.

These are just some of the creatures of the night from Philippine folklore. The thing is, there are still people who believe these creatures exist.
