That Sigbin Photo that is Circulating the Internet

There's a "kinda fake, taken from a movie" photo of what's supposedly a Sigbin circulating in forums all throughout the Internet lately.

The one above isn't the photo, that's probably from some local movie or from at one of the many "Shake, Rattle and Roll" movies Mother Lily has produced.

Here's the photo that's been going around the Internet though.

Like I said, it spells faked/shopped/hoax so no need to call that out. A sigbin is described as:

"The Sigbin or Sigben is a creature in Philippine mythology said to come out at night to suck the blood of victims from their shadows. It is said to walk backwards with its head lowered between its hind legs, and to have the ability to become invisible to other creatures, especially humans. It resembles a hornless goat, but has very large ears which it can clap like a pair of hands and a long, flexible tail that can be used as a whip.[1] The Sigbin is said to emit a nauseating odor.

It is believed to issue forth from its lair during Holy Week, looking for children that it will kill for their hearts, which it fashions into amulets."

Sounds scary AND interesting. I just can't see how it could actually kill it's victim but I do not have any intention of finding out. Remember this guy from "Cabin in the Woods" and his fixation with the Merman?

This is truly a case for Alexandra Trese.
