Red Room

The Red Room is a scary Japanese urban legend about a pop-up that appears when you are surfing the internet. They say that if you close it, you will die.

The Red Room

There was a boy who was addicted to the internet. He heard an urban legend about The Red Room from one of his friends at school. That evening, when the boy got home, he went on the internet to see if he could find out anything more about it.

All of a sudden, a small window popped up with a red background. Written in black, was the message, “Do you like β€” ?”

The Red Room

The boy closed the window, but it popped up again. He tried numerous times to close it but it just kept re-appearing. Eventually, the boy noticed that the question had changed. Now, it read: “Do you like the red room?” and in the background, a child-like voice said, “Do you like the red room?”

Just then, the screen went black and a list of names appeared in red. At the bottom of the list, the boy saw the name of his friend… The friend who told him about The Red Room.

All of a sudden, the boy became aware of something behind him and he lost consciousness.

The Red Room

The next day, the boy didn’t turn up for school. There was a rumor going around that something had happened to him. The next day, his classmates head the horrible news. The boy had committed suicide, painting his room red with his own blood.

    i thought the person surfing the internet that closed the tab will die, not the person that told someone else about it?

    Weird and creepy but not scary. He was probably drove mad by it or they killed him and made it look like suicide

    Would that even be possible? Unless whatever killed him painted his room red with his blood…yep, that makes more sense than him doing it.

    Red Rooms, eh? Apparently, there’s rumors about red rooms, that are in the deep web. Well, they say that there are snuff films of people getting tortured to death/being used for I humane experiments and such. Sad what people do with their life init.

    Omg I always wanted to read this in the Japanese urban legend section of this website but it wouldn’t let me like you couldn’t click on it to read it


    Great!….. I think I am curious to go to the red room…. But what if i have the same fate…
    Anyways the story was pretty scary but the story has not mentioned about his friend who told the boy about red room… According to me the should have mentioned that his friend was also dead or the should have mentioned that the boy’s name also appeared in the red room list…..
