I'm just curious about it, really. One of what I believe is my best ones, The Ferryman, is based on Charon of Greek Mythology and I want to soon write one based on either Chinese or Japanese folklore. My only issue is that I'm not sure if they're necessarily scary to people.

Of course, I know there's other factors that go into it - things like how well it's written and how the lore is portrayed - but I'd like to know your thoughts.
