Bloody Mary is an ancient folklore legend. According to this legend or myth, if you call her name three times (although some claim you must call her name five or even thirteen times) in front of a mirror she will appear inside the mirror. Sometimes she appears outside the mirror too.
The spirit of Bloody Mary can be evil or good, depending on different historic accounts. If she is nice she might tell you your future. If she is evil, she will scratch you. Some people claim that seeing Bloody Mary means that you will die. Bloody Mary can appear as a rotting corpse, a witch or a ghost. Sometimes Bloody Mary appears as a woman drenched in blood and holding a dead, blue baby.
Throughout the years many people have invoked the spirit of Bloody Mary. Nowadays, it is mostly groups of curious young people that decide to play the Bloody Mary game and to communicate with her. Most people communicate with Bloody Mary in dimly lit bathrooms. School bathrooms seem to be a favorite among these groups of young people.
Most stories portray Bloody Mary as an evil figure who is out to scratch your eyes and possibly even kill you. We have collected fifteen such stories. If you’re curious, why not try and contact her yourself?
