Mr. Peerapong Nimcharoen was the first to witness the fright. According to Thai Rath, Mr. Nimcharoen woke up at 10PM on 9th January 2021 to find a floating woman’s head with glowing entrails flying in his house through the window. He quickly woke up his mom and grabbed the flashlight, only to find that Krasue had already flown away. Mr. Nimcharoen reportedly saw it fly under his neighbour’s house. 

Armed with knives, Mr. Nimcharoen and his uncle waited all night for the Krasue to come out. However, Krasue was nowhere to be found.

Ms. Waranya U-ma, the owner of the house Krasue flew under, claims she witnessed the monster too. She recounts that after hearing about Mr. Nimcharoen’s sighting of Krasue, she quickly searched her basement with a flashlight, where she saw glowing entrails. Ms. U-ma also reportedly heard banging noises from under the house.

Mr. Nimcharoen’s encounter sparked the community’s attention. The next evening, numerous people gathered around his and his neighbour’s house to witness Krasue. Members of the community also placed raw intestines and live chickens near the cellar to draw Krasue out, but ultimately failed as Krasue is nowhere to be seen.


What is Krasue anyway?

Krasue is one of many Thai mythical creatures. During the day, the spirit looks just like everyone else. At night, the Krasue’s head flies off of its body –  with its trademark glowing, dangling entrails and heart –  to hunt for food. The head attaches itself back to the body before dawn.

This mythical creature can also be found in nearby countries folklore including Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam and Malaysia.
