The 19 Scariest Urban Legends

Stories You Don’t Dare Share in the Dark

Urban Legends

Scary urban legends are rarely factually verified but do reveal important truths about our deepest, darkest fears. Embracing these fears by sharing them with a group is a way of confronting and coping with those things that scare us most. So, one dark night — maybe by the light of a campfire, during a sleepover, or just enjoying a quiet evening with friends — try sharing one of these tales of terror. if you dare!

The Clown Statue

I can’t watch TV with that thing in the room.” Their reaction freaked her out even more.

Lovers’ Lane

Detroit Publishing Co.//loc.gov A teenage couple is parked late at night on lovers’ lane. The boy gets out of the car, heading for the bushes to go to the bathroom, but he doesn’t return. After waiting what seemed an eternity, his girlfriend finally hears what she thinks is his footsteps approaching. Only it’s not footsteps. It’s something scraping back and forth across the roof of the vehicle.

Aren’t You Glad You D >

As if any of us needs proof that scary things happen in the dark, this unnerving tale about a murderous madman lurking unseen in a dark dorm room proves that what you don’t know can hurt you — even if, for the moment, it chooses to hide and wait.

The Vanishing Hitchhiker

As darkness fell, the honeymooners came upon a female hitchhiker in a tattered white dress. She begged them to take her home. They obliged. Then a strange thing happened as they pulled into the driveway of the address she had given them. It was a moment they’d never forget.

The Russian Sleep Experiment

Not long after the end of World War II, Russian researchers launched an experiment to test the effects of long-term sleep deprivation on human subjects. Five prison inmates were enlisted and promised their freedom if they could stay awake for 30 days and nights straight. The inmates were confined to a sealed chamber and exposed to a powerful stimulant gas. What could possibly go wrong?

Bloody Mary

Five young girls stood before the bathroom mirror in the dim glow of candlelight, chanting together: “Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary.” The thirteenth time they said it something very odd and very frightening happened. Not all of the girls lived to tell the tale. Some of those who did wish they hadn’t.

She woke up a short while later and noticed a stinging sensation on her cheek. At first, she attributed the irritated patch of skin to sunburn, but it soon began to swell, growing into an unsightly boil. Except it wasn’t a boil at all.

A teenage boy drives his date to a dark and deserted lovers’ lane for a make-out session. He turns the radio on, setting the mood and leaning in for a kiss. Suddenly the announcer’s voice breaks through the music with a dire warning: “Ladies and gentleman, a convicted murderer has just escaped from a nearby asylum. ”

The Babysitter and the Man Upstairs

In this classic urban legend dating back to the 1960s, a young babysitter calls the police after receiving prank calls from a creepy stranger who keeps asking if she’s checked the children. As she waits for police to arrive, the caller rings again — this time tipping the babysitter to a terrifying realization.

Humans Can Lick, Too

There was once a beautiful young girl in a small town just south of Farmersburg. Her parents decided to go out one evening, leaving her home alone, protected by the faithful family dog. “Lock all the doors,” they said as they left. She did as she was told, nervous about being left alone, but confident that her faithful dog would protect her.

The Killer in the Window

One cold, dark, wintry night, a 15-year-old girl babysitting her little sister while her parents attend a party curls up on the couch to watch TV. As she settles in, she notices a tall figure approaching the sliding glass door. Grabbing the phone to call for help, she looks back up to see a wrinkled old man standing, staring at her. He pulls a shiny, metallic object from his pocket, and.

Ants in the Brain

The Body Under the Bed

Honeymooners notice a strange odor in their hotel suite and call the front desk to see if they can switch rooms. No, front desk advises, the hotel is full — regrettably, they’ll have to sleep at least one night in the smelly room. Housekeepers arrive the next morning to clean the room, making a grisly discovery no one would ever expect, but which they would also never forget.
