Old Japanese horror is spoopy as fuck.

I'm confused. So who's the young girl with the peony lantern and what role does she play in this whole scenario?

What's the significance of it being 'Obon'?
>>
>>292426
Obon is a Japanese Buddhist custom to honor the spirits of one's ancestors.
As for the girl with the lantern, it's not made clear.

Adding on to that, the spirits of the dead are said to be either more active or outright corporeal during Obon.
Truly a time of spookiness.

And thanks for making me google that, now I am positively spooked.

What happens if you don't respond? Checkmate ancient Japanese tales.
>>
>>292553
A) this isn't ancient, this is from the 1970s
B) that would probably get you killed, ways to 'circumvent' it are by saying "you are so-so" or "i have things to do"

There is a reason why most ghosts appear at night.

Its when we are at the most tired state and the light is the dimmest. These two causes sensory distortions in some people. Combine that with the people who want to make patterns out of random things create ghost legends and stories.
