The Expressionless – Truth or Hoax?
So, a few days ago I was browsing this really interesting site – 9GAG and happened to come across this post about some creepy mannequin like woman who claimed to be “God ” and ate away all the hospital guards etc.
first of all, this is how the complete story goes for those who haven’t read it yet: (Source: The Expressionless – Creepy Pasta)
A Note before reading: Please don’t read this if you are scared easily and especially not at night ;)
In June of 1972, a woman appeared in Cedar Senai hospital in nothing but a white, blood-covered gown. Now this, in itself, should not be too surprising as people often have accidents nearby and come to the nearest hospital for medical attention, but there were two things that caused people who saw her to vomit and flee in terror.The first being that she wasn’t exactly human. she resembled something close to a mannequin, but had the dexterity and fluidity of a normal human being. Her face, was as flawless as a mannequins, devoid of eyebrows and smeared in make-up.
There was a kitten clamped in her jaws so unnaturally tight that no teeth could be seen, and the blood was still squirting out over her gown and onto the floor. She then pulled it out of her mouth, tossed it aside and collapsed.
From the moment she stepped through the entrance to when she was taken to a hospital room and cleaned up before being prepped for sedation, she was completely calm, expressionless and motionless. The doctors thought it best to restrain her until the authorities could arrive and she did not protest. They were unable to get any kind of response from her and most staff members felt too uncomfortable to look directly at her for more than a few seconds.
But the second the staff tried to sedate her, she fought back with extreme force. Two members of staff had to hold her down as her body rose up on the bed with that same, blank expression.
She turned her emotionless eyes towards the male doctor and did something unusual. She smiled.
As she did, the female doctor screamed and let go out of shock. In the woman’s mouth were not human teeth, but long, sharp spikes. Too long for her mouth to close fully without causing any damage…
The male doctor stared back at her for a moment before asking “What in the hell are you?”
She cracked her neck down to her shoulder to observe him, still smiling.
There was a long pause, the security had been alerted and could be heard coming down the hallway.
As he heard them approach, she darted forward, sinking her teeth into the front of his throat, ripping out his jugular and letting him fall to the floor, gasping for air as he choked on his own blood.
She stood up and leaned over him, her face coming dangerously close to his as the life faded from his eyes.
She leaned closer and whispered in his ear.
The doctor’s eyes filled with fear as he watched her calmly walk away to greet the security men. His last ever sight would be watching her feast on them one by one.
The female doctor who survived the incident named her “The Expressionless”.
There was never a sighting of her again.
Shocking? even I was left wondering .. and did a little bit of research of my own to find out whether the story is true or not?
Well, here is a pretty logical analysis of the story:
- Firstly the appearance, I don’t think the plastic surgery was so advanced in 1972 so as to present such an appearance. However, it is possible to cleanly shave the facial hair and create that same appearance with available cosmetics at the time. Also, she was wearing a bloody white robe. Whereas, in the picture, the clothing shown is not bloody. Maybe, they either changed her robe or the picture was simply a recreation.
- This story has appeared many times on the internet over and over again, with the exact same words, but the strange thing is that they all started in around mid 2012 and no reference earlier than that. So, its like the story just pops out of nowhere. There is no mention of this story anywhere on the Hospital’s site or any other record except for certain blogs and 9GAG.
- How did they not notice her sharp teeth when removing the kitten from her mouth. Also, it is mentioned that the Teeth were “Too long for her mouth to close fully without causing any damage” so how was she hiding it till then?
- How did the doctor relate his last view to the recorder of the story? While it is possible that he might have told it to another person working at the hospital with his last gasps, it seems inconsistent with the way the story is being told.
So, based upon the above analysis, I would say that the story is really creepy and weird but there are many logical inconsistencies in the story and it’s not much likely that there is any truth in the story, it’s just a Hoax. A really good horror story, but not real :)
