I always believed it was a head, but the thing about not knowing was the creepiest thing. They completely ruined this with the Frozen Butterfly ending from the remake.

Sometimes it's scarier not to know, you know?

I always thought it was a head. Or a skull, to recite Shakespearian quotation!


I found it! She was holding her sisters dead body. BAM.

Maybe it was one of those stone things... like for the spirit stone radio.

Or a head.

I always thought it was a head.

Not sure why she would be holding it but whatever.

I always felt this scene was a tad overanalized xD 

To me, she's probably holding a book (we find Sae's diary behind there), but through the screen it looks like she's talking to a severed head. 



a) Most importantly, to freak out the player. A girl whispering beind a screen to a head? SPOOKY SCARY SKELETONS

b ) Subtle Foreshadowing: Around this time, we discover we have to find the doll heads to activate the doll puzzle.


c) Communicating to us that Mayu is slowly getting pretty hecked up by staying in the village. She's slowly more possesed by Sae and talking like her. 


So yeah. I felt it was more a quick scare tactic that didn't have that much deep thought put into it xD

The combination of its fame (I think everyone remembers this scene when they play it) and controversy is porbably what made the creators mention it again in one of the endings of the remake. In this time it's a pretty direct foreshadowing.

I think she was holding a head, but it was actually Sae. It's supposed to show that Mayu is slowly becoming Sae.

OR Mayu was holding a book, but Mio went through so much that she hallucinated.
