Years ago, one of my Japanese-American friends told me a 'classic' Japanese Urban legend that is the Eastern equalivant to our "Bloody Mary". here's a link to the story and a 'SCREAMER' video:

Warning!! Contains a "screamer".... do NOT click..repeat...do not click.....

That said, rabid, welcome to the site, but for a first post, you should not be labeling that a "fun lil flash video" --it's a screamer...and we don't like screamers (ok I don't and some others)...

I sure hope you didn't join just to post this...that would be sad...

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate and wine in hand, body thoroughly used up, and screaming WoW what a ride!

Oh gezz, sorry! I forget how much of a 'fear-tolerance' I've got...and no, I didn't join just to post this.

I used to have that high of a fear tolerance..but then these screamers came along and just knocked that right off...

And since you said so, I'll apologize...you don't know how many we get joining just to post these things...LOL...

I mean, I'm curious, but I just cannot stomach them anymore..and I know a few others on here who cannot as well...

so it's all cool.. just put "screamer" somewhere in the body....and we will be sufficiently warned. [Smile]

Lady Moon, I am so glad I read all of the posts before I clicked on the link. I hate screamers. I dread Haloween because that is usually when all the screaming emails show up in my inbox. *Sigh*

rabid - I do not want to make you feel unwanted here, but I just had to post in agreement with Lady Moon Shadows.

PS: Welcome to the board . . .

I really don't want to click on the link, so could you give us the story in a nutshell?

Ugh, count me in. I hate those things. I get all shuddery and apprehensive just thinking about it. And I watch Japanese horror with the lights off!

But, since you did the dirty deed for us, LMS, I too would like a run down before I start clicking stuff.

I like to go down to the playground and watch the kids run and jump and scream, because they don't know I'm only using blanks.

Another variation is a stranger walking along a road, lost, see's a man/woman up ahead, calls out to him and he turns around only to have no face, just blank skin.

This was parodied in the film Pom Poko.

Then there's the popular urban legend of toilet hanako in which the ghost of a dead school girl haunts the girls toilets. I believe there's a horror film about her and there's a parody in the anime Haunted Junction (which deals with school urban legends) where she's an attractive girl who regularly flirts with boys in the toilets.

that just makes me think of the girl in Harry Potter who haunts the girl's room. I used to be on this board years ago, and I became inactive because of lack of internet which is why I lost my account. During that time though I unfortuently saw a few screamers, and I agree with everyone here that they are awful!
