Toilet roll with horror novel

Picture: Pulp fiction: Writer Koji Suzuki poses with rolls of toilet paper on which his short horror story "Drop" is printed, at a printing factory in Fuji, Shizuoka Prefecture, on 23rd Saturday, 2009.

Hayashi Paper is producing toilet rolls of K├┤ji Suzuki, one of Japan's leading horror writers, latest work "Drop" as toilet-time entertainment printed in blue and is interspersed by splatters that are reminiscent of blood. The story is repeated over every 86 cm of paper and each roll costs Y210 (£1.40). The novel "Drop" printed on its toilet paper is set in a public toilet and plays on Japanese superstitions that ghosts and evil spirits inhabit the smallest room in the house, which is why they were traditionally relegated to the most distant part of the home. Parents still tell naughty children that a hairy hand will seize them when they have their pants around their ankles if they misbehave and drag them down into the dark water below. "Drop," set in a public restroom can be read in just a few minutes.
Each roll carries several copies of a new nine-chapter novella by Koji Suzuki, the author of the horror story "Ring," which has been made into movies in both Japan and Hollywood.VIA
