Can a painting be haunted by the spirit of a small boy? Can its evil powers cause houses to burn down around it?
Well, probably not.
But back in the 1980s, a huge number of Brits believed it. Terrified that a rather tacky painting known as The Crying Boy was cursed, they ripped it off the walls of their homes. Thousands of the paintings were destroyed in a mass bonfire.
So how did rumours about The Crying Boy start?
