In this article we will be taking a look at the phenomenon known as the oriental nightmare death syndrome that is reported among certain men in Thailand.
Are these unfortunate souls really being killed off in their sleep by the entities known as Window Ghosts?
Northeastern Thailand in 1990
1990, in northeastern Thailand, a mad panic breaks out within the male population – window ghosts were killing off men in their sleep!
Window ghosts are known to only target men, so, the younger male population started to wear women’s clothing and makeup, in a bid to confuse the deadly entities.
As well as this, they hung various penis models around their bed or even around their neck – apparently these phallic symbols were very powerful in warding off window ghosts…
The Phallic Defences
Most of this ‘paranormal penis weaponry’ was carved from wood, some more crude than others. Some of their creators went as far as adding testicles made out of round fruit and pubic hair made out of fishing net material.
The locals who inhabited Ban Thung Nang Oak all banded together to create a very large, and very impressive communal phallus – which stood a meter high!
Another Thai couple decided to go one step further…and created a scarecrow that had numerous penis models attached to it’s body.
They nailed a sign to the rather disturbing figure that read – The Widow Ghost Hunter.
At one point in time, during the end of the year, a village got wind of a rumor that claimed the window ghosts had devoured enough male souls…and now they were looking to ‘cross border’ and start with the females…
Of course, panic ensued.
Are Window Ghosts Real?
Well, to many people from East and Southeast Asia, they certainly are!
But what about this mass panic during 1990? What was behind this ferocious ‘window ghost attack’?
Numerous reports were released that suggested certain autopsies revealed the men had died due to poor nutrition.
These males had apparently lived on a diet of nothing but sweet rice…which led to overproduction of insulin and numerous other nutrient deficiencies.
Now it’s over to you – what are your thoughts on the oriental nightmare death syndrome and window ghosts?
Do you feel that these men died in their sleep through poor nutrition and lifestyle…or do you feel that they were taken by these Asian entities?
