Danny, Fahmi, Toyols and Orang Minyak

Did Toyols come from pre-Islamic Mecca?

Is the Orang Minyak just an overlubricated serial rapist?

How did the Al-Arqam movement spawn one of our most recent hantus - the Hantu Kum Kum (: as in Assalamualai-Kum)?
Fahmi Fadzil gets writer /photojournalistDanny Lim on the PopTeeVee couch to talk about The Malaysian Book of the Undead.

Sounds like an interesting book. I hope (doubt) it includes photos too of the various supernatural beings. :) For those who'll like to delve more into this fascinating subject, I recommend Skeat's MALAY MAGIC.
