2) Bloody Mary

Steps

  1. Out of the group, secretly earmark a person who should hide in the bathroom. He should wear a scary Halloween costume.
  2. Turn off the bathroom lights, make a player enter and close the door.
  3. He should chant “Bloody Mary” 3 times.
  4. At the 3rd chant, the hidden person comes out and pulls at the participant’s hand. The grip should not hurt, but it should be firm and difficult to free oneself from.

As the blood-curdling cry of a participant reaches the players outside, watch their reaction. The “ghost” should now reveal her true identity alleviating all of the 1st player’s fears and warn him to keep the so called Bloody Mary’s identity a secret to others outside. The person who remains inside for the maximum time is the winner.

A movement in the garbage cans.

You pick up your pace.

You want to get out of the alley fast.

But then you see something.

Red eyes. Glowing red cat eyes.

They are the eyes of an enormous cat.
