Known as “La Isla de la Muñecas”, by the Spanish, The Island of the Dolls is perhaps the creepiest tourist attraction in Mexico. Located within an extensive network of canals, south of Mexico City, the island is a place of mystery and superstition.
Almost every tree growing on the island is decorated with old, mutilated dolls that give anyone the feeling that they’re constantly being watched. The story behind the Island of the Dolls began when a hermit by the name of Don Julian Santana moved here. Although he was married he chose to live the last 50 years of his life alone.
Don Julian used to say he was haunted by the ghost of the little girl who had drowned in one of the canals around the island. Some say he used to fish the dolls from the water because he though they were real children, but the truth is he was collecting and placing them around his home as a shrine for the spirit that tormented him. At one point he even traded home grown fruit and vegetables for old dolls.
Ironically, in 2001 Don Julian Santana was found dead by his nephew, in the same canal that he said the little girl drowned in. Now his Island of the Dolls is one of the world’s weirdest tourist attractions. Some tourists who visited this place claim the dolls whisper and you must offer them a gift upon setting foot on the island, to appease their spirits.
if I would have heard of this place in September already.. :(
The slit-mouth woman is an urban legend about a woman with a slit-mouth (meaning that the woman’s mouth is cut from ear-to-ear. She wears a white mask to cover her severed mouth.
Kuchisake-Onna appears in the streets of Japan, murdering mainly children with a pair of huge scissors. But before Kuchisake-Onna kills the victim, she asks him/her this question: “Am I pretty?”. If the victim answer yes, she will take off her mask, revealing her severed mouth, and asks “How about now?”. This is the tricky part…….if you answer “no”, she will kill the victim. If you say “yes”, she will take her scissors, and cut the victim’s mouth, making him/her have a slit-mouth just like her, but Kuchisake-Onna may let you live. It is almost impossible to escape from Kuchisake-Onna, because she can move at super-human speeds.
But I said ALMOST impossible, so there are a few ways to escape:
1. If the you say that she looks normal, she will get confused, and you will have enough time to escape.
2. If the you ask if you’re pretty, she will also become confused, and she will leave.
3. This is the newest way to escape: if you tell her that you need or have to attend a previous engagement, she will pardon her manners and excuse herself from your presence.
How did Kuchisake-Onna got her mouth severed? Some say it was a accident. Others say it was a surgery gone wrong. Yet, other people say that Kuchisake-Onna is an escaped mental patient who was so demented that she cut her own mouth apart.
But the most popular legend/explanation was because her husband sliced her mouth a sword because she was cheating on him. After he attacked her, he yelled “Who’ll think you’re beautiful now?!” In the spring and summer of 1979, rumors started to spread throughout Japan about sightings of the Kuchisake-onna hunting down children. The story was spread like wildfire, causing many of Japan’s towns to become afraid of the Kuchisake-Onna. It even caused the police to increased their patrols and made schools send teachers to walk students home in groups.
