PHII KRASUE

(PIEKRA-ows)
Variations: Phi Krasue
A type of vampiric phi from Thailand, the phii krasue is described as a flying head with dangling entrails, a long tongue, and sharp teeth. The phii krasue drains a person's blood by inserting its tongue into its victim's anus. As it drains the blood, the vampire chews on the body, taking out bite-sized chunks of flesh.
