Bloody Mary

Bloody Mary. A name that gave us all a chill down our spine when we heard it during 5th grade. I’m sure many of us wouldn’t have the guts to invoke her even now xD

For those of you who are clueless, Bloody Mary is said to be a spirit that appears when we perform a certain ritual on a full moon day. Bloody Mary allegedly appears to individuals or groups who ritualistically invoke her name in an act of catoptromancy. This is done by repeatedly chanting her name in a mirror placed in a dimly-lit or candle-lit room. The Bloody Mary apparition allegedly appears as a corpse, a witch or ghost; can be friendly or evil; and is sometimes “seen” covered in blood. The lore surrounding the ritual states that participants may endure the apparition screaming at them, cursing them, strangling them, stealing their soul, drinking their blood, or scratching their eyes out.

Amused? Curious? Here are two interesting videos I found that could interest you. Have fun!

P.S. the sound effects are incredible, so do wear headphones!
