Horror genre is considered as one of the attractive genres for adolescents and even adults. Since this genre is considerably significant in children’s literature, the eminent figures arisen from the eastern cultures have been introduced in this research. These characters can be detected in two very old texts known as ‘’occult stories’’ which belong to the 14th and 15th centuries. The outcomes of this research can be regarded as a suitable scientific reference. Moreover, the writers and producers of horror genre can use the presented characters in the other stories and works of their own. Henceforth, they can preserve this old oriental written heritage. In addition, the content of this research makes the people of other nations familiar with these characters. From intertextual point of view, some similarities can be globally detected in the adaptive literature.
