Hide Ya Wife, Hide Ya Kids: Oily Man Returns to Malaysia

Friday, January 6th, 2012


One of the more gruesome crypto creatures made a frightening return to Malaysia over the holidays. The Oily Man (Orang Minyak) is a supernatural creature covered in black grease that crawls into the homes of families and rapes virgin daughters.

According to a report in Malaysian newspaper The Star, there were multiple sightings over the Christmas holidays. One eyewitness saw it “crawling up the stairs of the house, just like Spider-man. When it reached the top it suddenly jumped onto the roof. I don’t think a human could do that. It then just disappeared… We can laugh and joke about it, but this is serious. All the families here have young girls.”

This is unique as far as crypto creatures go for one key reason. It’s a supernatural creature that operates like a home invader. It’s not out in the wilderness where humans rarely operate (Bigfoot, Chupacabra et. al.) nor is it trapped in a house with history beyond the previous owners like a ghost. Hell, even vampires normally have rules about private property.

But not the Oily Man, he just breaks right in like a common hoodlum and takes what he wants.

The legend has at times created mass hysteria, according to Wikipedia. With young unmarried women in student dormetories sleeping with sweaty men’s clothing so as to trick the OM into thinking they were with a boyfriend.
