Check Out This Creepy Horror Animation Video


Here’s a creepy horror animation video inspired by an old urban legend. A reader, Jra, created it. Check out more of his work on YouTube!

Has anyone else heard of this legend? It was new to me.

The Legend

“In college, some friends and I heard about an engineering student that, during his final exams, got a call in the middle of the night from his mother to tell him the worst news: his brother had died in a strange accident. The next day, the student disappeared and was never seen again. No one —not his teachers, peers, or tutors— knew what happened to him, and the event was forever shrouded in mystery.

Not long ago, at an old students meeting, a friend told me that he’d spoken to someone who knew what really happened that night: The student’s brother really did die in a terrible accident, and he did speak to his mother that night. However, his mother didn’t call him with the news, he called her…because his dead brother was in his room.”

*Please note, the video is in Spanish but has English captions which viewers may need to switch on.

  1. It needs more story behind it. Tales of the relatives appearing just at the time of death, or shortly afterward, are not really uncommon, but I don’t know of any in which they are threatening. In fact, in many such tales it is not clear that the relative is in fact dead, or if that is guessed, it is only because it would be physically impossibe for him to be back so soon from a trip abroad or from a war. Whether or not the threatening aspect of Alex is explained — was this a case of fratricide? — why would Javier, knowing the dead Alex was standing in the room, turn his back on him and proceed to have a calm phone conversation?

  2. Well I agree that it creeped me out like Nicola… but I thought the same thing about how I couldn’t have a phone conversation at that! The animation was excellent and it is a super freaky story, however.
