Behind many of Japan’s most famous and terrifying urban legends is a malicious spirit of someone who died under usually horrible circumstances and thus the legend of their curse is born. Very little is ever know about who they once were when they were human, where they where born, there childhood, and the events leading to their eventual passing and curse until now!

Coming soon starting this week as part of my ‘New Darkness In The East’ project, the back stories, the human stories of these mysterious and well known urban legends will come to life at ratafire.com/pyramiddhead

By supporting this project, this week you will gain exclusive access upon posting to the story behind the woman famously known as the malicious spirit Kuchisake-onna Slit-Mouthed Woman as told in a style of storytelling similar to that of Blackhaven Demon Profiles outlining the life, drama, love, wrath, revenge, and everything else behind these urban legends who had all simply started off as human as us.

Backers will also gain access to the backstories behind the last previous ghost entries and future access to the upcoming reimaginings and backstories of other popular Japanese ghosts legends such as Teke Teke, Hanako-san, Aka Manto, KuneKune, and many more that will be coming with this series.

Your support funds my continued work in providing original artwork and stories for hopefully many years to come, thank you to all who have supported in anyway thus far!
