Scariest Picture

The Scariest Picture on the Internet is an urban legend about a strange painting of a beautiful young Asian girl who committed suicide. The painting is said to be cursed and if you stare at it long enough, the image will begin to change and her face will become hideous and monstrous. The story is believed to have originated in China.

Scariest Picture on the Internet

According to the legend, this is a picture of a teenage girl who lived in a country in Southeast Asia. Her boyfriend was an artist and he was painting a portrait of her.

The girl was the target of bullying at school. She was of a very fragile nature and she reached a point where she couldn’t take the bullying anymore and committed suicide. When her boyfriend heard the news of her death, he was so anguished that he finished the painting, sent a copy of it to all of the people who bullied her, then jumped to his death.

One of the bullies received the picture in an e-mail. When he looked at the picture he is believed to have gone crazy. He claimed he felt a rotting hand grasp his face and he was found the next day hiding in a neighbor’s back yard, shouting: “She came! She came!” He became ill and was confined to bed. Doctors could not figure out what was wrong with him and 3 months later, he died.

Since then, the picture has circulated on the internet and people have been reporting strange events when they stare at it for too long. People find themselves drawn in and hypnotized by her vivid blue eyes. An artist who became obsessed with the painting was later found dead in his home. He had hung himself.

Many people say that if you stare into her eyes for a long time, her face will change into a frightening and horrible visage. Others say that staring into her eyes will summon her ghost.

They say it is best to have a friend with you when you view the picture, to make sure you don’t have an accident or do something really stupid like take your own life…

  2. hachishakookisama says

    Her eyes were moving the whole time and I think I saw her blink like once.And her chest was moving up and down like she was breathing 😱

  3. Snakegirl62 says

    I swear her eyes kept changing. It looked like she was thinking or like had a soul. She’s really pretty.


    Last time when I saw this video(2yrs back) I was very much freaked out…. Now I don’t have the guts to look again…

  5. PurpleGirlTheHorrorFan says

    whew that really messed up ma eyes, but this time, I could swear it looked like she breathed, and her face shrunk back a teensy bit…I ALMOST saw a skeleton, and the colors kept getting darker or lighter…creepy……….. O_O

  6. PurpleGirlTheHorrorFan says

    I watched he video, but nothing really happened…it made my vision blurry and my eyes hurt…im watching it again cuz you guys mentioned a skeleton or something

    I don’t want to spoil anyone’s fun but this whole thing is fake. The artist is a Japanese graphic designer (I forgot his name). He is alive. This picture is edited, the original has a necklace and a crown-type thing on her head. This painting is called “The Melancholic Princess” and was painted in the same way as the Mona Lisa’s mouth (soft enough to make it look like she will change expression at any minute.) It was literally painted to be an optical illusion.

    her face if you stare at it will start to….just change it wont look like the girl who it started as. but kinda readjust it will go back to her. like i started seeing an older woman

  9. XxAsianGhostxX says

    Ok. I was way to scared to watch it after all these comments >:O But all i did was like, make my eyes blurr it out and im like OMFG, She had no eyes and her bones were like…Ehhh, Lol, this is scary, and all i did was blurr it ;33

  10. TheKidFromHell says

    i can kill myself but i am not watching this at any cost i mean i can see her skelenton!!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. MegIz says

    All I see is a VERY pretty girl. Sure she breathed, but so what ? Her right eye got smaller a bit, but it didn’t scare me.

  12. music_freak says

    I didn’t see anything. It didn’t even change abit? What am i doing WRONG ??

  13. Duality says

    I take it I’m the only one who just saw a pretty girl then… The skeleton thing [SPOILER ALERT] is an illusion – it’s all a trick of the mind. I still don’t see skeletons though.

  14. KaytlinIsBeast says

    Guys, it’s an illusion . Try staring at your reflection at night in the car mirror . It morphs .

  15. scary lady says

    I watched the whole thing staring in between her eyes…. she became a skeleton with hollowed out eyes and black hair in a bun on top of her head and she was screaming

  16. TheHollowDevil says

    i stared at the same spot for a while, the pic changes color, her face somethimes dissapeard and tha eyes looked different somethimes. my eyes hurt now, i hope it’s just an illusion

  17. BettyQueenOfScreams says

    If you drag the thing along, her head freakin moves o.e it doesnt have a popup or anything but it freakin moves dude

  18. scary lady says

    i cudnt watch it after reading tht some people killed themselves… scared meh

  19. Jossu420 says

    okay people the thing is that what you’re seeing is an optical illusion. when u stare at her face u imagine stuff. and btw when u stare at one place too long it’s starts to change no matter what it is.

  20. furrykinz2234 says

  21. fieryangelsouljia says

    i saw an eyebrow raise sort of like a challengeand then she became a little angry and then i saw a decaying person. interesting…

  22. MizzTura says

    When I was watching this it became well freaky, her expression became sadder, she seemed to breath and her bones became really visible I couldn’t watch it

  23. 123chocobo says

  25. Alice_doll13 says

    eh! I was too busy looking at her face to tell the time but after a while, she tends to get darker, and her face will look angry, then her face will go back to normal then her eyes get big, i was so scared my eyes started to water. T^T

  26. Sergevitch says
