We have a rich collection of our own mythical creatures. Here are just 8 of them, but as the cute and colorful characters of everyone's favorite cartoon, "Adventure Time."

A refrigerator that eats humans. While this “creature” hasn’t really entered full-blown mainstream consciousness as part of Pinoy horror lore just yet, 8List would like to propose that it should. It’s from an episode from the very first Regal Film’s seminal “Shake, Rattle and Roll” movie series, written by Amado Lacuesta Jr. and directed by Ishmael Bernal, starring Janice de Belen.
