Confession by Unknown
Here is a personal experience. In 1998, Singapore was screening the movie, The Ring. I did not keep track of when the period of the hungry ghost festival was and so happened that it was on the last day that I watched the movie.
Being the only one in the group with a car, I had to send my friends home after the late show, then make my way home, alone. After locking the car, I had a feeling that I was being watched, even as I walked along the void deck of my house. I took a glance around me but saw nothing. I’m not usually frightened by scary movies or supernatural occurrences, but this time, a chill was running up my spine. I shrugged it off as wild imagination and took the lift up to my level. Even along the corridor, I could feel that stare directed at me.
I hurriedly opened the door into my house and went straight to the toilet to take a leak. In the midst of my business, I heard a female’s voice calling my name from outside the toilet and I replied “Wait sis, I’m still using the toilet”, as I thought it was my sister.
There was no reply…. Which was strange, as my sister would usually say “Hurry up lah…” When I got out of the toilet, there was no one around. I checked my watch and realized it was past my sister’s bedtime so she would have been asleep hours ago (She taught the morning session and usually slept early). Furthermore, her room door was closed, and if she had opened or closed it, I'd have heard it. I kept reassuring myself that it was probably my imagination and went straight to bed.
About half an hour passed, I was still tossing and turning about in my bed, finding it really hard to sleep. The images from the tape shown in the movie, kept replaying in my mind. Just then, I heard the sounds of pots and pans clanging (not so hard until bashing) distinctly right outside my room door. It didn’t seem possible, as my kitchen was on the lower level!! It was really frightening as I was trapped in my room, unable to go anywhere without walking past whatever was making that noise outside my room!! The thought of what was creating such a racket was scary, but the thought of “it” coming into my room was even more scary!!
I said my prayers and asked for protection. I had to force myself to sleep while the disturbing sounds went on. I must have been really tired, as I fell asleep in the midst of saying my prayers.
The next morning, I was telling my mum and my friends about what I encountered. My mum said it probably was my imagination, but she did admit she had never seen me so frightened by something supernatural in the past……. Then, one of my close friends told me that I shouldn’t have watched the movie. Apparently, the movie ‘The Ring’ was a cursed show, and those watching it would be cursed.
Thus, what I had experienced was due to having been “cursed” or it could be that the spirits, knowing that was their last night of freedom before they had to “book in” to where they had to go, decided to have some fun?
