Based on the japanese horror folk tale of a spirit haunting a school bathroom. Hanako-san. done with photoshop. Here is her story:

All you have to do is stand very close to the door of the third stall, knock three times, and ask “Are you there Hanako-San?”

Afterwards there’s always a stretch of silence if Hanako-San is really there she will answer in a slow whisper “Yes, I am here.”

According to the legend of Hanako-San what happens next will vary depending on what school you’re in. Sometimes a hand will bust through the door and drag the person into the stall and kill them. Usually though after the pause the stall door will open just a slight bit. Then if the person is brave enough they will be able to push the door open, revealing Hanako-San herself.

THE LIFE OF HANAKO-SAN

The stories of how Hanako-San became a ghost vary depending on who you ask and what part of Japan you’re in. One story says that she was a girl who lived during the time of World War II. She was playing hide and seek in her school one day and hid in the third stall of the girl’s bathroom. However while she was crouched and waiting in the stall some planes came and bombed the area, causing that part of the school to collapse on her.
