Urban legends may or may not be true, but they do reveal important truths about our deepest, darkest fears. Sharing horror stories is a way to cope with what scares us the most. Here are three urban legends that are sure to make your hair stand on end. Continue reading…if you dare…
The Clown Statue
This story can also be known as “The Clown Doll”, “The Killer Clown”, and “The Clown Serial Killer.” The story goes like this:
A girl in her teens has to babysit for a family in Newport Beach, California. The family she is babysitting for are very wealthy and the house is large and spacious. Oh, you know the sort…ridiculous amount of rooms, enormous lounges etc.
So the parents need a babysitter because they want to go out for a late dinner and movie. The father informs the babysitter that after the children are in bed she must go to a designated room because he doesn’t want her wandering around the house. He tells her that she can watch TV in there.
After the babysitter understands her duties, she sees the parents out the door and gets the kids to bed. After they have fallen asleep she goes to the designated room to watch some TV. She tries to watch TV, but she is distracted by a clown statue standing in the corner of the room. She tries her best to ignore it for as long as she can, but she feels like she is being watched by it and she is freaked out.
She couldn’t stand the uncomfortable feelings she was experiencing, so she called the father to ask him: “Hey, Sir. The kids are in bed, but would it be alright if I switch rooms? Your clown statue in the corner is really creeping me out…”
She waits for a response from the father, but all she can hear is frantic breathing on the other line. Before she has time to ask him if he is still on the line, he responds: “Get the kids, get out of the house, go next door, and call 911.” The babysitter replies with, “Why? What’s going on?” The father replies, “Just go next door and once you’ve called the police, call me back.”
As you can imagine, the babysitter is frightened and confused. She wakes up the children, goes next door, and calls the police as instructed. Once the police are on their way, she calls the father back. “What’s really going on, she asks?” He responds, “We don’t have a clown statue.”
The father explains that the children have been complaining about a clown that watches them as they sleep. He and his wife ignored it, thinking it was just nightmares.
When the police arrived they apprehended the clown and found that it was a midget who would dress up, get into the house, and live there for several weeks. He would come into the children’s bedrooms at night and watch them while they slept. Because the house was so big he was able to sneak around undetected and live off their food.
The Russian Sleep Experiment
Toward the end of the 1940s, Soviet researchers sealed five prison inmates in an airtight chamber and drugged them with an experimental stimulant gas to test the effects of prolonged sleep deprivation on the human mind. Their behaviour was closely monitored via a two-way mirror and their conversations monitored closely too. In total, they had gone without sleep for an entire month…
The first couple of days passed uneventfully, but on the fifth day, the prisoners started showing major signs of stress and were bemoaning their circumstances. At one
After that phase, paranoia started to kick in. On the ninth day of the experiment, the prisoners started their screaming. One inmate was running around the chamber screaming at the top of his lungs for hours at a time. The other inmates’ reactions were equally worrying because they were quieter, but had started ripping apart the books they were given to read. The smeared he pages with their own faeces and plastered them over the mirrored windows so their actions couldn’t be monitored anymore…
Then, all of a sudden, the screaming ceased. The inmates stopped communicating with each other completely. Three days passed without a sound in the chamber. Fearing that the worst had happened, the Russian scientists contacted the inmates via an intercom. “We are opening the chamber to test the microphones,” they said. “Step away from the door and lie flat on the floor or you will be immediately shot. Compliance will earn one of you immediate freedom.”
Then, chillingly, a voice from within answered, “We no longer want to be freed.” The scientists were taken aback.
Two more days passed without any contact as the researchers debated what to do. Finally, they had come to a decision to cancel the experiment altogether. At midnight on the fifteenth day, the stimulant gas they were pumping was replaced with fresh air.
Unexpectedly, however, at the prospect of being released the inmates started screaming in fear for their lives. They begged for the gas to be turned back on. The researchers unsealed the door and sent in armed soldiers to retrieve them. Nothing could have prepared them for what they were about to see upon entering the chamber…
One inmate was found dead, lying face-down in six inches of blood. Bits of his flesh were torn off and stuffed in the floor drain. All the subjects were severely mutilated, in fact. The wounds were self-inflicted. Some of them had even opened their own abdomens and disembowelled themselves with their bare hands. Some even ate their own flesh.
The four inmates who were still alive seemed terrified at the thought of sleeping and refused to leave the chamber. They were pleading for the gas to be turned back on. All of them fought the guards so they could remain in the chamber. They managed to get them out and they were transported to a medical facility for treatment. The first patient fought so furiously against the anaesthesia that they tore muscles and broke bones during the struggle.
The rest underwent surgery without sedation. They didn’t feel any pain, but they just laughed hysterically on the operating table. They were laughing so hysterically that the doctors feared for their own safety so they used a paralytic agent to immobilize them.
After all the surgery survivors were asked why they had harmed themselves so badly, they said that they desperately wanted to go back on the gas. Each gave the same answer: “I must remain awake.”
Feeling threatened, one of the commanding officers shot the inmates but left one alive. The commander asked, “What are you? I must know!” The inmate responded while smiling, “Have you forgotten so easily? We are you. We are the madness that lurks within you all, begging to be set free at every moment in your deepest animal mind. We are what you hide from in your beds every night. We are what you sedate into silence and paralysis when you go to the nocturnal haven where we cannot tread.”
The commander then fired a bullet into his own heart upon hearing that.
Bloody Mary In The Mirror
This legend is also known as “Mary Worth,” “I believe in Mary Worth”, and “Hell Mary.” The story goes like this…
Kat got invited to a sleepover by a bunch of girls in her class she didn’t know too well. At the sleep over they decided to play Truth or Dare. When it was time for Kat’s turn, the girls dared her: “I dare you to do Bloody Mary.” Kat gulped but accepted.
The lit a candle for Kat and pushed her into the bathroom, closing the door. Kat spun around three times and said, “Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary,” into the mirror before her.
After w few moments, nothing had happened, so she walked to the door. But before she could reach the handle…her candle blew out. She panicked, banging on the door, begging for the girls to open up for her. The girls just laughed. She backed up against the bathroom door in the blackness.
She heard the sink start to run. Thick, black blood started pouring out of the faucets and was soon overflowing onto the floor. She screamed a hair-raising scream as Bloody Mary rose from the bloody water in the sink and crawled out. When she got hold of Kat she slit her throat and dragged her into the bath. The next morning the girls unlocked the door to heck on her and they found her body floating in the bathtub surrounded by a pool of blood. The girls screamed so loud that they could be heard for miles…
We hope that we’ve gotten you into the Halloween spirit! Please be reminded that these are just legends, and there is no physical evidence that any of these stories actually happened. But even so, keep close to your loved ones this Halloween and always be prepared for the unexpected. The spooky energy will be out there, so don’t fall victim to its scary charms!
