We’re reaching the final days of the Hungry Ghost Month. This occasion sees the Chinese in Malaysia make offerings of food, money, and entertainment to the wandering ghosts and spirits on earth. Customary tradition indicates these souls of the dead may cause mayhem if ignored, so living humans will perform this rite during the seventh month of the lunar calendar.
As the ghouls roam freely, a set of unspoken rules comes attached and applies to us breathing beings. Well, only the superstitious lot will get jittery and avoids going out late at night alone, or not answering if someone calls your name from behind.
Avoid encountering stray spirits and fall back to safety by staying home to Netflix. If the seat beside your couch is warm, it might be a beloved relative keeping you company while you enjoy these blood-curdling supernatural flicks curated by the on-demand media streaming giant.
