KUALA LUMPUR -- Imagine you are living alone in a forest with your two children, surrounded by nothing but a looming wall of vegetation, with no other humans in sight. One day, as your family goes about its daily chores, a small girl caked in mud and what seems like coagulated blood makes a sudden appearance at your door. No matter how much you try to help her, she will not speak. When she finally does, her curse chills your blood. "You will all die before the next moon," she says in a demonic voice.
