TOKYO, Japan — Koji Suzuki, author of the horror story made into a movie, "Ring," has taken his most recent tale of horror from the big screen to the big roll, according to the Associated Press
"Drop," a story set in a public restroom, takes up about three feet of a roll of toilet paper and can be read in just a few minutes, the story stated.
The company manufacturing the toilet paper, Hayashi Paper, is advertising the venture as "a horror experience in the toilet," the story noted.
According to the story, toilets in Japan were traditionally tucked away in a dark corner of the house due to religious beliefs and parents would tease children that a hairy hand might pull them down into the dark pool below.
The nine-chapter story is printed several times on each roll and will sell for 210 yen or $2.20 a roll, the story added.
