Mary-san or “Mary’s Phone Call” is a Japanese urban legend about a young girl who receives creepy phone calls from the doll she abandoned. It is very similar to “The Antique Doll”.


There was a young Japanese girl who had an old Western doll that she cherished very much. The doll’s name was “Mary”. The girl’s father got a new job and the family had to move to a new town. During the move, the girl accidentally lost her doll.

One night, the girl’s parents went out and she was left home alone in the new house. All of a sudden, the phone started ringing. When she answered it, she heard a high-pitched voice on the other end of the line.

“Hello, it’s Mary-san. I’m at the garbage dump now.”

The girl got scared and hung up the phone, but it immediately started ringing again.

“Hello, it’s Mary. I’m at the corner store now.”

The girl hung up, but the started ringing again.

“Hello, it’s Mary. I’m in front of your house now.”

Trembling with fear, the girl cautiously opened the front door, but there was nobody there.

“Maybe it was just a prank call,” the girl thought.

She let out a sigh of relief and closed the front door. However, just as she was about to back upstairs to her room, her phone started ringing again.

“Hello, it’s Mary. I’m right behind you.”

The girl slowly turned around…

Later that night, when her parents came home, they found the girl lying in a pool of blood. She had been stabbed to death.

How to avoid being killed by Mary-san:

1. Lock all your doors and windows.
2. Don’t answer the phone.
3. Keep your back to the wall.
4. If she’s behind you, don’t turn around. Just run out the front door immediately.
