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.
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…
