A paranormal viral trend called the "Charlie, Charlie challenge" has teens using a homemade "Ouija" board of sorts to summon an old demon named Charlie that will answer questions. It is supposedly an ancient Mexican entity of sorts. While I do not believe this I found it interesting. I do hope it does not inspire any Slenderman like violent incidents that happened last year though.

I am not trying it either, for the record.

Wonder how they are getting the pencils to move. Are they blowing on them? Do you think that a demon is really moving the pencils?


When I was little I was with some older teenagers that used a ouija board and supposedly it worked for them. I was always skeptical, and thought they were making it up. Even though I am skeptical, I don't think I would do it myself...just in case. The last thing I want is to summon some troubled spirits.

A Mexican named Charlie? Pues, ¡no! It has to be 'Carlos' or else you're not summoning the real McCoy.

With the way the pencils are positioned any vibration or wind will move it...

Maybe they meant Charlie Sheen? They want the power of the tiger blood and I recall him saying he was a "warlock" from Mars. Mystery solved maybe?

It would not be Carlos either. That name is of Spanish origin. This claims to be an ancient Mexican entity, so pre-European contact.

Reminds me of the person trying to sell an ancient Native American money spell taught to them by a witch doctor.....um.....ancient native people did not have money, and witch doctors are from Africa....
This stuff makes my head spin!

When I was about ten, I tried a Qija board with my sister and her friend. Not surprisingly, absolutely f--- all happened. One of the many, many, many events that turned my into a hardcore skeptic. Maybe I should be the first to turn in a screenplay about this, though, as all of these teeny bopper trends seem to end up as movies in Redbox.

In any event, in traditional Mexican mythology there are a ton of great creepy gods, although only one, Texcatlipoca, the Smoking Mirror, is truly evil. He is my very favorite trickster figure, and has the totally awesome title: "the enemy of both sides."

Another, Xipi Totec, the flayed god, to whom the Aztecs used to flay people, was the inspiration for Pinhead in HELLRAISER.

And who can forget Carlos Fuentes' classic 1954 short story of a Mayan god come to life: CHAC MOOL?

So the point is, I don't believe any of this, but if these kids are contacting some Mexican demon, they better be damned well careful of just who they are summoning. They are bound to end up skinned alive.

This is the result that happens when you live in spiritual ignorance. They're going to get exactly what's coming to them choosing to play with satan.
