Legend Has It There’s A Female Demon Who Kills Awful Husbands

Like all other cultures, South Asia has its own selection of other-worldly monsters to scare children (and even some adults). None of them really ever frightened me because they all seemed to have a reason for being the way they are.

The one that intrigues me the most of them all is the Churel also spelled Chuṛail, Cuḍel, Churreyl, Chudel, or Cuḍail.

In Pakistan, Churel is also the word for a living witch. But this ghostly female demon is the man-hating, anti-patriarchy, kind of iconic ghost that I hope to become when I pass away.

Read a little more about the infamous Stikini, a Seminole legend with some creepy similarities.
