You know, the type of terrifying tale that EVERYONE in the town seems to know about, but no one can confirm exactly what happened?


Maybe you've heard about the endless ghost sightings at the Dead Children's Playground in Maple Hill, Alabama.


According to legend, the playground (which is located INSIDE OF the Maple Hill Cementary) hosts the spirits of the children buried there, who come out to play between the hours of 10:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m.

Or, perhaps you're from Westfield, New Jersey, and followed every detail of "The Watcher" letters.

Basically, a couple bought their "dream house," only for them to discover after the fact that the house is stalked by "the watcher." This "watcher" sent the couple many creepy letters over the course of several years, one which included the quote, "Have they found what is in the walls yet? In time they will."

So, what is the absolute craziest, scariest urban legend to come out of your hometown?
