Bang Utot

Abstract:
“Bang-utot”, literally, ‘attempting to get up and groaning…’ Death occurring in the course of a nightmare… In Manila about twelve cases of death by Bang-utot are recorded each year. One man who recovered said that ‘a little man’ was sitting on his chest and strangling him. William Burroughs, Naked Lunch.
