Gob­bled up

Chat It's Fate - - Chats it's fate | Myths 'n' folklore -

The Joro-gumo is a Ja­panese de­mon that as­sumes the shape of a beau­ti­ful woman whom men find ir­re­sistible. Un­for­tu­nately, after se­duc­ing her lat­est suitor, she trans­forms into her true form of a ghoul­ish spi­der-woman, binds the man in her web, then poi­sons him and de­vours him! The Juro-gumo some­times poses as a troubled mother car­ry­ing what ap­pears to be a help­less baby - but after con­vinc­ing a passer-by to help her by hold­ing it, it be­comes a hor­ri­ble mass of spi­der-eggs which hatch and eat the vic­tim. Truly the stuff of night­mares!
