Okiku, the haunted doll (Japan) resides at the Mannenji temple in the town of Iwamizawa (Hokkaido prefecture). According to the temple, the doll had short crop hair, but over time it has grown to roughly 10 inches (or 25 cm since the rest of the world uses the MS) and comes down to her knees. The hair is trimmed from time to time, but keeps growning back.
There is a story about a young boy that buys this doll for his little sister who happens to be sick. The little girl passes away due to her sickness a year later. A few weeks later the family started to notice the doll’s hair grow. Okiku is also the name of a maid that committed suicide and haunted her master.
Whatever the story or reason may be behind this creepy doll’s hair growth, this is so fucking creepy.
On Christmas Eve night, 1945, the Sodder family were awakened by a fire in their home. George and Jennie Sodder quickly escaped with four of their nine children (ten in total - one was away in the military). The other five children were never seen again.
George Sodder had immediately gone back into the house to retrieve the five remaining kids, but the upstairs where the kids’ rooms were was divided by fire and impossible to get to. He attempted to climb up to a window with his ladder, but found it missing. He instead tried driving one of his two coal trucks up to the house, intending to use its height to reach the windows. Neither truck would start, though they worked perfectly the day before. Attempts at phoning the fire dept. from neighbor’s houses received no response, and by the time a squad arrived from the neighboring town, their home had burned down.
A search of the ashes turned up no trace of their missing children. It was generally assumed the fire was hot enough to completely cremate the bodies, but the Sodders were not convinced. Their house had burned down too quickly to not leave any bones, yet no bones or any trace of their children were ever found. The family set up billboards with photos of their missing children, looking for any leads or clues as to what could have happened. Several people came forward claiming to have seen them, including a woman at a tourist stop who claimed to have seen the kids with four Italian men and women. They grew hostile when any attempt to talk to the kids was made, and mostly kept to themselves before disappearing the next day.
20 years after their disappearance, a mysterious letter with no return address was mailed to Jennie Sodder. She opened it to find a photo with “Louis Sodder. I love brother Frankie. Ilil boys. A90132 or 35” written on the back. The Sodders could not deny the resemblance to their missing son, and quickly searched for leads again. They all fell through, but the Sodders instead updated their billboard to include the photo. The Sodders eventually died without knowing what happened to their children. Only one of their kids is still alive, Sylvia, who also believes her brothers and sisters that went missing did not die in the fire.
With the advent of photoshop and all the techniques used to manipulate photographs it’s hard to tell whether a picture is truly genuine or not.
Never the less I appreciate the concepts behind all of them.

The Girl In Blue
In 1933, a girl dressed all in blue came to Willoughby, Ohio on a Greyhound bus. After spending the night at a boarding school and getting to meet everyone she decided to take a train to New York. Upon seeing the train, she dropped her luggage and sprinted for it. She was hit and killed by the train. No one knew her name or whether her death was an accident or a suicide.The only thing on her person was 90 cents and a ticket to Pennsylvania.
Her identity remained a mystery until a title agency researched through some records and found her name — Josephine Klimczak. County records, however, have not changed the death certificate; she is still listed as The Girl in Blue.
The bottom of the grave reads “Unknown but not forgotten.”
Metalosis Maligna is a fake disease invented by award-winning Dutch filmmaker Floris Kaayk.
According to the mockumentary, Metalosis Maligna occurs when a metal implant has a bad interaction with human body tissues, causing the metal to grow tendrils that eventually puncture the skin from within and destroy it.
I was skimming through the video at first not knowing it was a mockumentary and landed on the part of the man in bed. I nearly died.
This is intensely creepy. Watch it.
Especially the ending, where the metal takes over his body
I’m thankful for all the different ways I can eat potatoes
