While mirrors are often looked at as passageways for communication between the physical and non-physical existence Bloody Mary is a far-fetched urban myth. There are many different stories considering similar expectations you can't possibly believe that beyond a doubt something hostile and physically dangerous will respond to "Bloody Mary" chanted several times. If something like cuts and scratches were to even be possible it would take more than a curious 10 year old standing in the bathroom with the lights off.
And don't even get me started on what you'll see just because the lights are in fact off.
Bloody Mary was a real person, but probally not the one your thinking of. In the past one of my school teachers said that Bloody Mary was known as Mary I a daughter of Henry VIII, who had many wifes, needed a son to carry out the throne. She gets her name for the many of people executions during her regien. She also left no sons to take the throne. Hope it helped. =)

i believe the person existed [what with historical evidence and whatnot] but the say her name 3 times and she'll appear in the mirror thing won't work, it's a scary story told at sleep overs to entertain.
The point of the "Bloody Mary" ritual is to stare at your own reflection long enough that Mary comes out and attacks you after her name is repeated three times.
The truth is, the "Bloody Mary" myth taps into a curiosity of the human brain. When we stare at a single point for long enough, our brain begins removing the unecessary detail and focusing on what's important. During the day, this substitution goes completely unnoticed.
When you stare into a mirror long enough, your brain starts removing the erroneous details of your face, resulting in an optical illusion that distorts your face.
I got told that Bloody Mary was a witch who got murdered by two men they left her to watch her self die in front of a mirror she then cursed the men and all mirrors old and future ones for when anyone sys her name she will come and seek her vengeance that's the myth I was told.
