3. Bloody Mary
Sam: “The Bloody Mary legend. Dad ever find any evidence that it was a real thing?”
Dean: “Not that I know of.”
Sam: “I mean, everywhere else, all over the country – kids play Bloody Mary, and as far as we know, nobody dies from it.”
Dean: “Well, maybe everywhere it's just a story, but here it's actually happening.”
I think a lot of people can identify with this one. I know I can. The terror of my junior high days consisted of girls daring each other to go into the school bathroom, shut the lights off, and say “Bloody Mary” into the mirror three times. Looking back, I think the point of the game was to see who could play the more convincing actress, as each girl would come out with some story about having seen something. I can’t remember specifically participating in such games, probably because I was too superstitious (my personal motto is to not mess with any of that kind of stuff, even in jest). But I do remember times when I was so freaked out I couldn’t walk past a mirror in my parent’s house at night. So “Bloody Mary” is another hard episode to watch with my eyes open.
That being said, the scariest scene, hands down, is when “Mary” crawls out of the broken mirror. The jerky movements and stringy hair make it a truly horrifying moment.
