Like the play it's based on and unlike many later instances of this trope, in this movie Stringy-Haired Ghost Girl Oiwa is ''not'' randomly murdering people, but is laser-focused on the man who killed her.

* First and foremost is the original onryo herself, [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yotsuya_Kaidan Oiwa]]. And yes, it is just as bad as you can imagine it.

* The Chen Family from ''Series/AmericanHorrorStoryRoanoke'' were a family of Taiwanese immigrants who lived in the Roanoke House during the early 1970's. They began experiencing supernatural phenomena during their stay so they attempted using ancestral folk magic to protect themselves, only to be killed by the Butcher and her ghostly minions. Due to the cursed nature of the property, they manifest as ghosts under the Butcher's power, killing all others that trespass on her land. Due to their heritage, the Chens all appear similar to the onryō from ''Film/TheGrudge'', possessing long scraggly hair, clinging to the walls, walking on all fours and contorting in impossible ways.

* ''Manga/HunterXHunter'' has Palm Siberia. She, on most occasions, sports this appearance because of scruffy long black hair and too much make-up, not to mention a frightening aura caused by stress. However, she is shown to be BeautifulAllAlong when she gets rid of that Samara look, takes a shower and combs her hair to go on a date with Gon.
