Episode 6: Mona Fandey

Black Magic, Shamans And Murder

Magic and animism are still widely practiced across Asia and practitioners command both fear and respect in what is still a highly superstitious region. So when a popular singer turned Bomoh, or Shaman is arrested for murder in Malaysia the country is not just in shock, it’s terrified. Soon Mona becomes a kind of boogieman, the Charles Manson of Malaysia and the tales of witchcraft and black magic still haunt the country to this day.
