Fuck me sideways and call me Mavis this is terrifying
Found it via a Facebook click bait article. Didn't dare look at the pictures. Yes, I get that it's most probably photoshopped but I saw The Grudge 15 years ago and still worry a dead Japanese boy is under my bed...
Do. Not. Click. If. You. Scare. Easily.

To clarify, the link is not the click bait article. It's the actual storyline, I googled to find a non click baity one.

Oh yes, I've been following this since shortly after it started.
This Paranormal Life (podcast) did a 2 parter on it recently - well worth a listen!

Veeeeery weird - at the very least it's a fantastic bit of story telling and a great showcase for his digital skills.
LadyFlumpalot · 18/12/2017 20:56
Trying to read the tweets and not look at the pictures! I'm going to have to stop though as it's giving me the creeps.

Love it, the little wonky face, the worn out shoe. I hope
a) it is real
b) David is a nice ghost just looking for company

I don't know. I'm not convinced. Looks like a doll on the chair to me.
CallMeOnMyCell · 18/12/2017 21:17
I thought this turned out to be an elaborate hoax? Or was that posted on a different twitter account?
SpecialAgentDaleCooper · 18/12/2017 21:24
Holy crap - I just read all of that whilst half expecting one of those scary screaming faces to appear on the screen.
I feel strangely on edge.
dontpokethebear · 18/12/2017 21:25
Oh this has been great and properly terrifying! Couldn't look at the most recent pictures though!
LadyFlumpalot · 18/12/2017 21:29
I've just made DH sit on the landing next to the bathroom door whilst I showered 😂 the last set of photos do appear to be follow the storyline for The Grudge though!
I'm 99.9% certain it's faked, either which way it's still terrifying.
CarbyDiem · 18/12/2017 21:31
Why the actual bloody hell did I just read all that???????
Never sleeping again. Ever.
JonsDragonQueen · 18/12/2017 21:40
Can someone give a brief outline, I love these things but I'm too scared to read them. It's safer to have you guys tell me
explodingkittens · 18/12/2017 22:01
I love DearDavid. I know it's fake please let it be fake but it's so well done. I get all overexcited when I see that @moby_dickhead has posted again. Really, really clever stuff.
DrRanjsRightEyebrow · 18/12/2017 22:16
I didn't pay much attention to the dates. When do you reckon we will get another update? I know it's fake but it doesn't make it less enjoyable!
SciFiFan2015 · 18/12/2017 22:37
I only skim read this, didn't look at the majority of photos or videos and still terrified! I have a very active imagination.
explodingkittens · 18/12/2017 22:38
@jons - it's a series of tweets (plus photos and video) posted over the last few months from a guy called Adam whose apartment is supposedly haunted by the ?malevolent ghost of a small boy called David. The last few tweets had photos of David in Adam's room while he slept, taken by remote camera.
It's all fake, obviously, but it's really well done. Very spooky, and Adam is brilliant at ramping up the tension. I absolutely love it.
LadyFlumpalot · 19/12/2017 07:07
I'm glad it's not just me that finds it terrifying yet weirdly compelling.
LadyFlumpalot · 19/12/2017 10:14
I don't learn. I really don't. I've just re read the whole thing (figured under bright strip lights it wouldn't be so scary) and this time I LOOKED AT THE PICTURES. Why? WHY?
explodingkittens · 19/12/2017 10:40
Have you clicked on the last photo (where you can just see the hair and the ear)? I haven't dared just in case it's a whole face
Honestly, I am a sensible adult who teaches SCIENCE and EVIDENCE for a living, and I know this is a fake...why is it so spooky?
LadyFlumpalot · 19/12/2017 11:01
I haven't, @explodingkittens for the same reason! The one further up his thread where the boy is crawling up the bed is bad enough...
