We asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us about the creepiest thing they own. Here are the weird-as-hell results.

1. This damn freaky creature:

"This is a Jenglot. It's a humanoid creature in Indonesian myth. We feed it by placing blood next to it, and it'll consume it somehow. The hair and fangs grow more the older they get."—TwerkingPokemon
