This is easily one of the most random, bizarre and terrifying video pranks concocted!
Have you ever heard the urban legend of the “Slit-Mouthed Woman,” aka Kuchisake-onna? The super condensed basic gist of it is she is a woman who was mutilated by her husband and later returns as a malicious spirit.
According to the urban legend, she roams the streets with a surgical mask obscuring her facial feartues and asks “am I pretty?” If you answer no, she’ll pull out a pair of sharp scissors and go to town on your face. If you say yes, she’ll pull her mask off revealing her scars and ask, “How about now?” If they answer no, she will kill you. If they answer yes, she will slit your mouth like hers and there’s apparently no escaping her. There is a 2007 Japanese movie titled “CARVED: THE SLIT-MOUTHED WOMAN” that tells a version of this story, but let’s get back to the following video.
Basically, a young gal dressed in Super Sonico cosplay is walking the streets of Japan handing out fliers. However, when people get close, they get a bit of a shocking surprise, especially those that are already creeped out by superstition and the above legend of the slit-mouthed woman. Have a look!
OK. How scary is that face she wears before she turns into “slit-mouthed woman!”
