The stories of urban legends have been floating around for many years, often without a verifiable source with them. However, they do highlight our deepest, darkest fears that have gone back centuries within the course of human nature.
The legend of Bunny Man Bridge says that if you walk all the way down the tunnel at around midnight the Bunny Man will grab you and hang you from the entrance of the bridge. Leaving you as a dead mutilated body to be found in the morning. On the bodies, feet will be a yellow note which reads: “You can’t catch me, I'm the Bunny Man.”
The moon shone high above Sweetwater Lake, the sky faded to dusk, and the frogs croaked in the bush. The lake was just behind an old house, a former plantation. The house belonged to Mr. and Mrs. Taylor. They were a young couple, married only a couple years. They were quite ordinary too: went to church on Sunday, went out to eat twice a week, headed to work on weekdays. There wasn't a single peculiarity about them.
Kokkuri-San is Japan’s answer to our Ouija board. I had heard about it in passing on the internet as just another urban legend. And since I knew little about it, I put it from my mind until it just came back. I was in Japan for a month long trip when I suddenly thought of the game. I was with my friend, Mari, who I met in an online chat room and asked her about the game.
Jack the Ripper terrorized the white chapel district from August 1888 to November 1888. He's murders started in August 1888. Jack started killing people in the London white chapel district. His kill count was five people. His target was mostly prostitutes in the area. Back then prostitution was very common, due to few job opportunities for women, so it was easy for him to find targets. In one of his killings, he removed the women's left kidney. That gave the police a clue that he had anatomical knowledge. He often slashed and stabbed people throats. Like the axeman, he also sent letters to the police here's a little excerpt.
Candyman is one of those spooky games that kids play at sleepovers. Some examples of other spooky games are Bloody Mary, Cat Scratch, and the Ouija board. Although this game does not cause an evil woman to come into your mirror, it could cause a vengeful spirit to come into your house looking for revenge.
Time is a damned thing. It circles back around on itself, like a snake eating its own tail. Sometimes, events that have transpired, long ago, seem to repeat themselves, as events realign themselves, and tragedy strikes the same spot, on the same date, maybe even at the same hour. A date in time, a day of the year, could draw to it the same mental vibrations that set certain events in motion, long ago.
Bub Rattleborough stood out on his porch one fine Spring day, aimed his six-shooter, and blew the head off of a poisonous snake that had crawled out from behind an old log in the yard.
What do you think of when someone mentions monsters from Medieval folklore? Do you think of werewolves, like France's loup-garou? Do you typically think of dragons from British legends? What about fairies? Trolls?
Way up in the mountains of Jackson County, near Sylva, North Carolina, there exists a giant, mysterious stone. What makes this large rock so mysterious is that it’s literally covered with weird marks and pictures, that scientists believe to be thousands of years old—perhaps tens of thousands. Even Cherokee Indians think that the area is ancient, as they claim the rock was already there when the tribe moved into the area long, long ago.
