Wendigo Lore Explained

True Horror Podcast

30-12-2022 • 30分

The Wendigo is a mysterious creature, with plenty of Lore written about it.

A mythological creature or evil spirit originating from the folklore of the Algonquian Indians - a cannibalistic giant; a person who has been transformed into a monster by the consumption of human flesh.

Wendigo loosely translates to "evil that devours." They are compulsive man-eaters and are said to have breath-like burnt flesh. It has also become a stock horror character much like the vampire, werewolf, or zombie, although these fictional depictions often do not bear much resemblance to the original mythology.

Wendigo Psychosis has also become the basis of many stories of people who have turned to cannibalism.
