How spooky is that? A woman with a gash on her mouth asking if she's pretty and carrying a large pair of scissors. Depending on your answer she's either use her scissors to make you just like her or she'll kill you right on the spot.

3 Aka Manto

His name literally means "red cape". You are in a bathroom in Japan, he will ask you if you want red paper or blue paper. If you pick red you are butchered to death and covered in blood. If you pick blue you are strangled until you turn blue. Either way, you're going to die. If you ask for paper of a different color, you are dragged into the netherworld. The only way to survive is not to answer his question.

14 Futakuchi Onna

This is a woman with two mouths. A normal one on her face and one on the back of her head. Creepy!

15 Hanako-San
16 Kisaragi Station
17 Baku

This is a demon that feeds on your nightmares. It's often depicted as a Tapir-like creature.

18 Kagome Kagome

Okay, true story(but feel free to dislike this and reply saying It's fake). So me and my cousins are waiting for my mom and aunt who were out grocery shopping. So one of my cousins brought up the idea to listen to the Kagome Kagome song used for the kids' game. At first, I wasn't spooked and was like "No big deal, It's just a creepier Japanese version of Ring Around a Rosie". Until the next day, the cousin who told me to play Kagome Kagome told me that last night, a ghost came to her and sang the Kagome Kagome song! Ever since that day, I was terrified! Yikes! - MLPFan
