Chanting "Bloody Mary" thirteen times in front of a candlelit mirror in an otherwise dark room will summon her vengeful spirit.
Bloody Mary is believed to be the spirit of a mother who murdered her children, or a young mother whose baby was stolen from her, which made her go mad in grief and eventually commit suicide.
Summoning - A how-to for beginners: Go into a room with a mirror and turn all the lights off. Bathrooms seem to be perfect for this since they almost always have a mirror and are usually dark at night with the lights off and the door closed. Light a candle, look into the mirror, start chanting "Bloody Mary". You have to do this 13 times, closing your eyes for the 13th repetition. Bloody Mary will manifest behind your left shoulder after the thirteenth invocation.
Should this method fail to summon Bloody Mary try the following method. For the most powerful summonings, the you must say, "Bloody Mary, I killed your son!" or "I killed your baby." This fierce taunting will cause her to become so cross that she will surely appear.
She has been reported to:
- Kill the person calling her
- Scratch their eyes out
- Drive the person mad
- Pull the person into the mirror with her
