Bloody Mary

Pernahkah anda mendengar tentang legenda Bloody Mary ? Bloody Mary adalah salah satu Urban Legend (cerita rakyat) yang terkenal pada tahun 1960an di Amerika Serikat. Sebagian besar orang – orang disana mendengar tentang legenda ini ketika sedang camping, pesta api unggun, dan beberapa kegiatan lainnya.

 

bloody_mary_1_smw0Menurut legendanya, arwah Bloody Mary dapat dipanggil dengan mengucapkan “Bloody Mary” sebanyak 3x didepan cermin di ruangan gelap yang hanya diterangi oleh satu buah lilin. Beberapa orang mengatakan harus mengucapkannya lebih dari 3x. Dan untuk ruangan, orang – orang biasanya mengetes legenda ini didalam kamar mandi yang gelap, namun boleh juga dilakukan diruangan lainnya.

Jika berhasil, maka arwah Bloody Mary akan muncul di cermin dan mencongkel mata orang pemanggilnya dan kemudian membunuhnya. Beberapa versi mengatakan hantu tersebut akan membuat pemanggilnya gila atau menariknya kedalam cermin dan tidak bisa keluar lagi.

Beberapa mengatakan, ia adalah arwah dari seorang perempuan bernama Mary Worth yang mengalami kecelakaan mobil dan menyebabkan luka parah pada wajahnya. Legenda Bloody Mary juga pernah ditayangkan di TV dengan judul Urban Legend di Trans TV. Film ini sendiri sebenarnya telah dirilis di Amerika pada tahun 1989 dan dibuat dalam bentuk DVD pada tahun 2005.

Berikut ada beberapa kesaksian dari orang – orang yang penulis kutip dari About.com :

 

As told on the Internet, Dec. 21, 1997 :

Some of my friends, five of us, cramped ourselves into a small bathroom in my friend Cathryn's House. We ended up saying Bloody Mary (more like chanting it) about 20 times or so for anything to appear. When we did finally see something it started out as a green glow then the darkened portrait of a face became more visible, by that time half of us were screaming so we knocked each other down trying to get out of the bathroom and then I flipped on the light. It was a welcome relief.

 

As told on the Internet, Feb. 16, 1994 :

When I was about 9 years old, I went to a friend's for a birthday/slumber party. There were about 10 other girls there. About midnight, we decided to play Mary Worth. Some of us had never heard of this so one of the girls told the story.

Mary Worth lived a long time ago. She was a very beautiful young girl. One day she had a terrible accident that left her face so disfigured that nobody would look at her. She had not been allowed to see her own reflection after this accident for fear that she would lose her mind. Before this, she had spent long hours admiring her beauty in her bedroom mirror.

One night, after everyone had gone to bed, unable to fight the curiousity any longer, she crept into a room that had a mirror. As soon as she saw her face, she broke down into terrible screams and sobs. It was at this moment that she was so heartbroken and wanted her old reflection back, that she walked into the mirror to find it, vowing to disfigure anybody that came looking for her in the mirror.

After hearing this story, which was told very scarily, we decided to turn out all of the lights and try it. We all huddled around the mirror and starting repeating "Mary Worth, Mary Worth, I believe in Mary Worth". About the seventh time we said it one of the girls that was in front of the mirror started screaming and trying to push her way back away from the mirror. She was screaming so loud that my friends mom came running into the room. She quickly turned on the lights and found this girl huddled in the corner screaming. She turned her around to see what the problem and saw these long fingernail scratches running down her right cheek. I will never forget her face as long as I live!!
