Today’s Jump Scare of the Day takes us back to 1999 and one of the most psychologically damaging movies of all time, Audition.

Telling the classic tale of boy meets girl, girl turns out to be psychopath, girl cuts boy’s foot off with piano wire, Audition has become perhaps the most infamous work of legendary Japanese director Takashi Miike, and it’s thanks in a large part to the infamous “bag scene” depicted above.

A little backstory, for those of you who don’t engage in masochistic filmgoing experiences like Audition on the regular: Some seven years after his wife passes, Shigeharu Aoyama is trying to get back into the dating world. The only way he knows how to do this is to have his friend stage fake “auditions” for the part of his wife (Japan, amiright?). He becomes infatuated with cute as a button Asami Yamazaki during one such audition and decides to give her a call some four days later.

Unfortunately for Aoyama, it turns out that Asami is what some would call “crazypants bananas”, as evident by the fact that she spent the entirety of those four days sitting next to a phone with a mysterious bag next to her. A bag that, well, I won’t spoil it.
