i've never tried or heard about the candyman thing (nor have i ever seen the movies, actually), but i sure did hear of the bloody mary thing and the
a friend of mine and i both went into the bathroom, completely dark, and we were about 9 at the time.
we had heard lots of stories about it, that if you said "bloody mary" to the mirror about five times (i think), you would see "something scary" in
we tried it, and of course, we saw "something" (i really can't remember what i actually saw). i do understand now that this was just our
imaginations playing with us, seeing that we were already scared before we got in there. if you're already that scared, and you do believe you're
going to see something, then you'll see something.
this did of course develop (we never tried the satan thing, though, that seemed too dangerous to do), and after a while, my friend said she saw
strange creatures whenever she entered a dark room. not scary creatures, just.. colorful ones. if any of you have played the "banjokazooie"-game for
n64, you probably remember those cute .. ninjos? i don't remember the exact name right now, but.. that's what she saw, small, strange creatures
resembling the ninjos (this was years before the game was released, so it wasn't that she had got the idea from there. i just needed something to
compare them to).
rather stupid, but back then, it was scary. i remember a whole flock of girls in the bathroom at school, turning off the light and doing the bloody
mary-thing. scared out of our skin, we all ran back to the classroom :p
i also remember we made our own oujia board, and of course, we thought the glass we used moved by itself, but it was always one of us that did it to
scare the others. after a while, we heard a story about "this girl who was a friend of a friend" that went insane after playing with an oujia board,
so we never touched it again.
