A Singapore driver captured an eerie prank that sent him spiraling.

In the spirit of the Hungry Ghost Month, also known as the seventh month of the lunar calendar where believers worship their dead ancestors, real estate agent Timothy Choo was spooked out by a creepy illusion of what looked like the nun from the movie The Conjuring sitting in the driver’s seat of a parked car at 126a Rivervale Street, a video showed. 

“You look at this crazy guy, it’s the seventh month and he is playing such a prank,” he said. “Got me scared to death while I’m driving!” 

The post indicated that the car was found in Tampines.

The video showed the white hooded figure with panda-black eyes, similar to the character Valak from the horror series, in the driver’s seat. The chilling entity, which looked like it was staring at Choo as he drove by, appeared to be a car seat cover. Choo has not immediately responded to Coconut’s request for further comment.

Something similar happened in 2019, when a user named Shah Ismail posted his encounter. Shah went closer to the vehicle to find that the ghoulish nun was simply a cushion attached to the headrest of the driver’s seat.
