Horror October: Urban Legends

Well, Horror October is officially over today :( It's been a lot of fun and I like the ideas I came up with year. For my final post, I am sharing some of the creepiest Urban Legends out there. I love everything scary so these legends definitely freak me out. I am also superstitious - no black cats, walking under ladders, etc... and with one particular legend listed below, I won't even say the words because it scares me so bad. Find out which legend that is and more below and thanks for following along this month! :)

The Legend:
A family hires a young babysitter to watch their kids while they go out on a date. The girl starts receiving multiple phone calls until eventually she gets the police to track the calls. On the last phone call, the police inform the girl that the calls are coming from inside the house and she needs to get the kids and leave!

The Legend: 
There's different versions of this but the gist is that you go stand in front of a mirror and say "Bloody Mary" three times and then she appears in the mirror with her eyes cut out.

The Legend:
A woman is on her way home from a night out with friends. A car is following her and she panics thinking someone is trying to hurt her. The driver follows her all the way home and calls the police. He followed her because he saw a person in her backseat with a butcher knife getting ready to kill her.

The Legend:
There are two roommates and one girl goes out to party while the other stays in and studies for the big test they have. When the partier returned, it was late so she decided to not wake up her roommate. The next morning, she woke up to find her roommate dead in bed.

The Legend: "There is a legend in Japan and China about a girl called Kuchisake-Onna, also known as the slit-mouthed woman. Some say that she was a samurai’s wife. One day, she cheated on her husband with a younger and better-looking man. When the husband returned, he discovered her betrayal; enraged and furious, he took his sword and slit her mouth ear-to-ear.

Some say that the woman was cursed to never die, and still wanders the world so that people can see the horrible scar on her face and pity her. Some people claim that others have actually seen a very beautiful young lady, who asked them: “Am I pretty?” And once they replied positively, she ripped off the surgical mask, and showed them her horrible wound. She then asked the same question—and anyone who no longer found her pretty was met by tragic death from her hands."

"The Legend:
A couple checks into a hotel and have to put up with a foul odor in their room all night. They call the staff to complain and somebody figures out the stench is coming from the bed. The staff takes off the mattress and discover the couple has been sleeping over the rotting body of a dead girl who had been stuffed in the box spring.

The Truth:
This actually happened, in Las Vegas. Also, Kansas City, MO and Atlantic City, NJ and several times in Florida and California. It makes sense if you think about it. The closet and under the bed are the two most popular places to hide just about anything, so it's not surprising a hell of a lot of corpses end up there as well. In fact, the odds are pretty good that at least once a guy has killed a prostitute, tried to stuff her under the bed, only to find there was already a body there."
