I recently placed man of Medan and I was told that it's based on an urban legend and now I'm really curious as to whether anyone has a favourite one or one you'd like to raise awareness and appreciation to.
I know...one pretty terrifying legend.
Let me go find it...
Here we are...
There's an urban legend in my city that a giant snake lives underground, and if you destroy a certain altar, the snake will rise and destroy the city.
If you drive through Lake County Ohio late at night and happen to see something that resembles a pack of hydrocephalics staring out at you from the tall grass, you might have stumbled across the fabled Melonheads of Ohio. Allegedly, the government ran a number of experiments which eventually left a group of humans with heads swelled to enormous sizes. Obviously, the government found little to do with a bunch of big noggins, so the story goes they got dumped off in the woods near Kirtland, Ohio, not far from Cleveland.
But because every story gets retold, more paranormal theories have been proposed about the Melonheads. Some believe them to be the ghosts of children who burned to death in a cabin fire. The children were subjected to tests by a man named Dr. Crowe, whose work caused their heads to inflate to their larger size. Regardless of their origins, the Melonheads get sighted the most at Wisner Road, where many high schoolers go in an attempt to witness them firsthand.
There's a bunch where I live at. Ohio is creepy 😱
Not so much an urban legend as a folk tale but
According to legend, a great storm once struck a village in Scotland. The terrified villagers gathered together in the church to take shelter and pray for salvation. They were so focused on their prayers that they failed to notice a great green-furred beast that appeared in their midst. The pastor was the first to see the creature as it stalked towards its unwitting prey. He tried to cry out a warning, but the beast leapt upon him with unnatural speed. With burning fang and claw he ripped the screaming man limb from limb. Then, maw dripping with blood and fluids, it turned upon the villagers, wh tried to flee. One by one they fell, until only a handful remained. Then, with a flash of lightning, the beast disappeared as mysteriously as it had arrived.
There was once a horrible woman. she laughed at sexual assault victims, married a man that loved to fly on the lolita express, constantly lied, and orchestrated murders.
She was pure evil incarnate. Luckily right when it looked like all hope was lost a great hero emerged. He exposed the beast to the ignorant, as they thrashed in anger. He saved us all. He wasn't the hero we deserved, but the hero we needed.
Nea hasa melonhead cosmetic. It's common knowledge that Nea is an unexplainable creature. Theres some truth in your story.
Ohio isn't the only state to see these creatures 3 other states as well.
