I don’t even live in Japan but I’m a little freaked out right now.
I didn’t compile this list, I got it from here
Here’s the Tomino’s Hell poem for those of you brave enough to read it out loud.
Also the original Cow’s Head story, which supposedly makes you die from fright is said to have no known copies around.
Guys, I don’t want to freak you out, so only click the “read more” link if you think you can handle what you’re about to see.
This will keep you up for nights on end.

Ho Rang’s webtoon promotion ofthe Gap Dong K-drama which, in my opinion, is scarier than the drama itself.

IT’S FUCKING BACK AGAIN

Take This Lollipop is a 2011 interactive horror short film and Facebook app, written and directed by Jason Zada, which uses the Facebook Connect application to bring viewers themselves into the film, through use of pictures and messages from their own Facebook profiles. Starring actor Bill Oberst Jr. as ‘The Facebook Stalker’, the film acts to personalize and underscore the dangers inherent in posting too much personal information about oneself on the internet. The information gathered from a viewer’s Facebook profile by the film’s app is used once, and then deleted.
I just stumbled across this and it’s super creepy! I think a lot of us forget how dangerous it is to post everything about ourselves on the internet where anyone can find it.
I actually have an entire list of short films that I’ve liked and recommended, but I decided to take it up a notch and write descriptions of my very favorite films so you can decide whether or not you’d like to watch them! These descriptions will just be basic summaries (Note: Some of these descriptions were written by me, others are official summaries), that way you won’t get spoiled. Be sure to let me know your favorites! :D
(Also, this list will probably be added onto as I find more short films)
- Director: Alexis Wajsbrot and Damien Mace
- Year released: 2010
- Running time: 13 minutes
- Synopsis: A young female babysitter is chatting to her friend when the young girl she’s watching disturbs her. She hangs up the phone and goes upstairs to investigate. She finds her screaming and standing up on her bed but can’t find anything wrong. She calms the child down and goes back down stairs. This happens several times but things get more ominous and creepy as the babysitter has to investigate the supposedly safe little bedroom.
- My thoughts: I love this short, it’s one of my all time favorites! I think it’s because it’s reminiscent of one of my favorite urban legends. However, even if you’re familiar with this urban legend, The Red Balloon still offers a twist that’ll ensure you won’t be able to guess exactly what happens.
- Director: Jon Knautz
- Year released: 2005
- Running time: 9 minutes
- Synopsis: A surreal little film that a man (whom we see generously popping pills while driving) who arrives in a very strange town where there appears to be nothing but mannequins; mannequins who move every time he looks away from them. In the end (following some very disturbing events), we don’t know whether this was a drug-induced hallucination or if something more sinister was afoot.
- My thoughts: This was actually one of the very first short horror films I saw and ended up paving the way to my obsession with them. As such, it has a special place in my heart!

Trying my best to contribute as much as I can this Halloween!
despite my semi hiatusBy the way, what’s your favorite in this volume?
This is one of my favorite pastas! It’s a long read but the payoff is so worth it! If you’d like, you can listen while you read along.
Um… hi there. I guess you could say I’m writing this as a cautionary tale to those who plan on studying abroad in future. I don’t mean to discourage you from going in the first place, it’s more like I just want you to be aware of this so that something like this doesn’t happen to you too.
Directed by Mark Steensland
This is a short horror film that, despite being minimalistic, manages to create a disturbing atmosphere throughout. I definitely recommend watching it to get in the Halloween spirit!
In honor of October, I’ve decided to start posting my favorite 2spooky stories every now and then! I only discovered this story recently but it’s quickly become an all-time favorite. I hope you like it as much as I do!
My mom has rapid early-onset Alzheimer’s and three months ago I had to put her into care.
I’m thirty-four and so you can imagine how I’m feeling about ending up the same way. My sister Megan is thirty-nine and is pretty much deep in denial, won’t go to doctors and last time I saw her told me to “shove my fucking fish oil tablets up my ass”. We love each other and get along but when it comes to Mom’s Alzheimer’s we can’t talk about it.
And if you can do the math, you can figure out that Mom was just fifteen when she had Megan. Quite the scandal back in the day but then she and my dad got married when she turned eighteen and had me and also my younger brother, Robert.
It has been a bad year. A really fucking bad year. Three months ago Mom went into care and that was because four months ago, Dad passed away. He was only five years older than Mom and died (they think) because of side-effects from his blood thinning medication. And if you do the math there you realize she was fourteen when she became pregnant with Megan and Dad was nineteen when that happened. A little statutory rape swept under the carpet of the past.
Putting Mom into care was hard but she’s not the first member of our family to go.
