Curse of the Red Room - A Japanese Urban Legend


Hello my friends!

Today I decided to bring you one of my personal favourite topics: Asian urban legends.
What a best way to start your week than to read a great urban legend from Japan.
I will probably talk about this urban legends in the future, so if you like this post, smash that +1 button and share this with your friends!
Now enjoy this story and have fun.


Japanese urban legends don't involve only monsters or even paranormal forces. Oh no, my friends, this is an urban legend that will make you feel afraid of your own computer.

What is the Red Room? Apparently is an internet pop-up that announces your forthcoming death, and you can do nothing to block it, since the pop-up blocker doesn't work. 
According to my research, if you are chosen by the Red Room to be it's next victim, what you can do best is to write a good and beautiful goodbye letter to the ones you love and pray (for the ones that have faith, or whatever) because death will come shortly afterwards.

The pop-up appears like this and says: "Do you like... ?", accompanied by a cute but creepy voice reading it aloud.



When you try to close the window, apparently it gets worse! No matter what you do, you can't close the window. 
Each time you click to close the window, it reveals more letters and a full message appears: "Do you like the Red Room?" 


Once the message is totally revealed, you start seeing a list of names. According to my research, the names that are presented are from all the victims of the Red Room. What happens next, is that the person chosen by this "thing", will commit suicide. 

And you might wonder why this is called the Red Room. It's quite easy to answer: before the poor person ends his own life, he paints his room with his own blood. 
But how? That my friends, is another mystery to the one I have no answer for.

I hope you like this post, and if you do, please tell me in the comments bellow!

Stay safe and have a great week.

XO,

This week I want to present you a murder case that happened a few years ago, and in my opinion, it's pretty creepy.

Let's go!

The Hello Kitty Murder was a 1999 case in which a 23 year old girl known as Ah Map was kidnapped, tortured and eventually killed in an apartment in Hong Kong. The torture period was extended for a month.







Ah Map met the 34 year old Chan Man-lok in 1997, at one of the various brothels she worked in. He became a regular client, but had violent tendencies when he was on one of his many methamphetamine binges. She also made the mistake of stealing his wallet. She paid back the money, and…

If you are a horror movie fan, you will definitely know this movie. Considered a masterpiece by many, and by some the scariest movie ever made. In 1973, 'The Exorcist' made its appearance, full of gore scenes and heavy suspense. Each person that watched it didn't know what happened behind the scenes.

The Exorcist is based off a real life event. William Blatty (the author of the novel), was inspired by a real exorcism that happened with a boy called Roland Doe. The exorcism was performed by catholic priests at Georgetown University Hospital, but they had to stop when Rolland managed to get free from the bed strains. Dur…
