Carved: The Slit-Mouthed Woman

A small town in Japan is facing a serious crisis... the curse of the Kuchisake Onna (a.k.a. The Slit Mouthed Woman). A facially disfigured spirit of a woman who sports a huge pair of scissors and an immense hatred for children. After an opening which features the legend of the Slit-Mouthed woman being told through several sets of characters. The film wastes no time and goes right into the children's abduction. The only thing standing between the spirit and innocent children are two teachers at the local elementary school; Ms. Yamashita and Mr. Matsuzaki. As the list of children whom have disappears begins to lengthen, the two teachers set out to solve the mystery of the Kuchisake Onna. (IMDB massaster760)

The film is based on a Japanese legend in which a samurai's wife was caught cheating on him, and he slit her mouth open. The same woman roams foggy streets, with a surgical mask on, and asks people she encounters, "Am I beautiful?". If they say, "Yes" she removes her mask and says, "Even like this?", and then slits their mouth. If they say "No" she cuts them in half. If they say "Average", she will allow them to escape.
