In the Chilote folklore and Chilote mythology of the Chiloé Island in southern Chile, the imbunche or invunche is a legendary monster that protects the entrance to a warlock's cave.

Legend

According to legend, the Imbunche was a male child kidnapped by, or sold by his parents to a Brujo Chilote (a type of sorcerer or warlock of Chiloé).

The Brujo chilote transformed the child into a deformed hairy monster by breaking his legs and twisting them over his back, applying a magic cream over the boy's back to cause thick hairs and, finally splitting his tongue to produce a forked, snake-like, tongue.

Travel writer Bruce Chatwin gives an interesting account of Chilote witchcraft and the imbunche in his book "In Patagonia".

British comic book writer Alan Moore wrote a version of the Imbunche which is very similar to Chatwin's description during his run on Swamp Thing.

It's first victim was an American artist named Emma. The Invunche manifested in her studio as an image on her sketch pad. It took corporeal form and terrorized Emma to the point wherein she threw herself from her studio window. [1] It then murdered Sister Anne-Marie after stalking her on a train platform. [2].
