Answer :

Because when the Japanese soldiers were in the Philippines they were torturing people in Capiz. To ward the Japanese off the people living in Capiz made stories about aswang. They capture a Japanese soldier and hang his body parts in trees. It's actually a war tactic made by Filipinos. And it worked perfectly.


Yea your right in the Philippines the olden aswang stories passed down to generation to generation do tell these kind of stories to younger children or as passed times but once you get older they tell you these stories are there to scare the living life out of you and they use this mentally so you think it may happen but not its a psychlogic related to younger children to go home at night that what I was told
