We recently featured 8 FSL signs related to the country’s pork-barrel issues.

FSL stands for Filipino Sign Language, a form of visual and manual communication that includes facial expression and body movements used by deaf individuals and hearing interpreters in the Philippines. FSL is a distinct language with its own content, grammar and principles that are not dependent on spoken English or Filipino languages and is a completely visually-oriented language.

Just in time for Halloween, here are 8 FSL signs related to Pinoy supernatural creatures, demonstrated by Christopher Espiritu Maglaya.

8. Manananggal

5. Tiyanak


4. Mangkukulam
