Top 10 Famous Urban Legends That Came To Life

Top 10 Famous Urban Legends That Came To Life


Urban legends are fun little stories to share
at a sleepover, or around a campfire to get a good spook. I mean they are just stories that are passed
down through generations right? Well some might be, but definitely not all. Hello! Whats going on, im your host lindsay ivan
and welcome back to most amazing top ten. Now i have done alot of urban legend videos
on this channel, from scary internet urban legends, to scary childhood urban legends,
I have covered a lot of ground. But I have never talked about urban legends
that ended up coming to life. So That’s exactly what I’m going to be talking
about today. Starting off at number 10 we have the candyman. The candyman was an urban legend based off
the short story by clive barker which eventually got turned into a movie. The urban legend states that if you look in
the mirror and chant his name 5 times then he will appear and give you candy. Kidding, i wish, but instead he will appear
and murder you. Now in the movie the candyman, they had him
climbing out of a medicine cabinet which altered the urban legend. In 1987 it would appear as if the candyman
was real. Ruth mccoy was a victim, who passed away after
2 men climbed through her medicine cabinet and shot her. Now these men were not the candyman, but used
the same method of killing that he would use. They broke through the connecting wall and
entered Ruth’s apartment through her cabinet. This is a very scary and tragic case. Moving on to number 9 we have the hermit in
the woods In Northpond Maine, a hermit living in the
woods was all the talk for 27 years. This urban legend started after people were
mysteriously losing their food, clothing, tools and toiletries. People said that this hermit would creep into
your unoccupied home and steal items. Well in 2013, it turns out that this legend
was real. Christopher Knight was arrested and charged
for robbery. Apparently he committed more than 36 robberies
per year, and was living in the woods since around 1986. I mean I have no clue how he got away with
it for so long. Next at number 8 we have the leaping lawyer
of bay street. Now this urban legend is about a lawyer who
fell from his office building and plumitated to his death. Now I remember hearing this story as a child,
since it originates in toronto. What I didn’t realize was that it was true! Apparently in 1993, a man named Gary Hoy was
trying to prove how strong the unbreakable glass in his office was. As a result, he ran towards the window and
used his full weight to bang against it. Unfortunately, the entire window popped out
and he fell 24 stories to the ground. Moving on to number 7 we have the ghost of
maules. This next urban legend takes us to switzerland. It is said that a mysterious figure who they
call le loyon or the ghost of Maules, stalks the Maules forest wearing only camouflage
and a gas mask. Some people have claimed to see this figure,
but it remained just an urban legend until 2013. In 2013 a photo surfaced of what appears to
be le loyon. Then a few months later, his gas mask and
coat were found in the forest. Alongside that was a note that basically suggested
that he was wandering the forest wanting solitude, and even suggests that he may have taken his
own life. To this day, no one knows why someone was
lurking the forest dressed like that, or where they disappeared to. At number 6 we have the Alice Killings
Now this is based on Japan’s most famous urban legend. Legend has it that someone was murdering random
individuals and placing a single playing card by their bodies with the word “alice”
written in the victim’s blood. This was said to happen between 1999- 2005. Well, in 2003 this story came to life. Around that time there was a serial killer
in spain that would leave playing cards alongside his victims. He was found guilty for the death of 6 people
passed and 3 that were wounded. However, no need to worry, this killer was
caught and is spending 142 years in jail. We are now at our fifth and halfway mark with
the bunny man. This legend dates back to virginia in the
1970s. Basically the legend states that there was
a patient that escaped the mental asylum and would gut bunnies and hang them from a bridge
underpass. This same patient was then said to move onto
new victims, being teenagers. Well in october of 1970 people reported seeing
this bunny man around town. One couple said that they saw him dressed
in a white suit and bunny ears. They also claim that he threw a hatchet at
their car windshield and shattered it. The next sighting was from a security guard
who saw this man with a hatchet hacking away at a porch railing. When confronted he ran away. No one has been able to catch this man, and
as creepy as he is, there’s no evidence that he has murdered anyone. Thankfully. But also, what’s up with his costume, like
there is trying to embody the easter bunny. Or maybe he was the easter bunny who is now
going down a darker path. And of course we have the boogeyman on this
list coming in at number 4. There are so many different legends of the
boogie man out there, but this one is about one named Cropsey. This tale originated in Staten Island where
kids believed that the boogeyman named cropsey would live in the woods and would attack and
disembowel children. Other versions say he was an ax murderer,
but no matter what version you heard they all say that he would hunt and attack children. Parents would reassure their kids that they
had nothing to worry about. But they did. In 1987 Andre Rand was responsible for a bunch
of child disappearances and deaths in the 1970’s. It is said that the story of the boogieman
heavily influenced him, and he even lived in the woods part time, being the real life
corpsey. In our third spot we have the organ stealers. Now this is another well known urban legend. This urban legend has lots of variations but
they all basically surround the same concept. A person is out travelling on a business trip,
hooks up with a stranger, who ends up drugging them. Yikes. Then they end up in a tub of ice, with stitches
along the side of their body, and with their kidneys missing! Now we may feel safe since this is just an
urban legend right? Wrong. It has happened to numerous individuals whose
organs are then sold illegally online. In 2008 it happened to a constructor worker
by the name on Mohammed Saleem. He took on a construction job in New Delhi,
but when he showed up to the job site he was knocked out, and his kidney was taken. Another victim was Shakel Ahmed who was 28
years old when he also had his kidneys forcibly taken from him. This is terrifying, I would like my kidneys
to remain intact thank you very much. Coming in at number 2 we have slenderman
Of course mr. slendy had to make it on this list. He is an all time favourite urban legend of
mine. I’ve mentioned slenderman on this channel
before. Basically he is a super tall pale creature
that appears to have no face. He preys on little children, getting them
to do dark deeds for him, or kidnaps and murders them. Now slenderman is just a legend created by
Eric Knudson. However in 2014 two teen girls were charged
for stabbing one of their classmates, claiming that slenderman told them to. Now the victim did survive, but the girls
plan was to walk to slenderman’s mansion after they finished the deed. They claim that his mansion is located in
wisconsin’s nicolet national forest. And in our number 1 spot we have the black
eyed children This legend is definitely one to keep you
up at night. The legend surrounds children whose eyes are
completely black, that make an appearance at night.The kids can be anywhere from 6 – 16,
and target adults who are alone. These kids often ask for favours, such as
asking to get a ride home with them, asking for food, or to use the bathroom in their
house. Now there are too many stories about people
encountering these children. In 1998, that was the first encounter with
them. A man said that two black eyed children tried
to get a drive home from him. He said that the children said “ we cant
get into your car until you do, just let us in, we will be gone before you know it. Umm no thanks, that is terrifying. More like he will be gone before you know
it. In 2008 a woman had a similar encounter. She was in a car waiting for her mom when
the children were tapping on the glass asking for a ride. Now it’s easy for people to make up these
stories for attention. But there is an actual video that shows a
motorcyclist encountering a black eyed girl. In the video you can see the girl appear and
then disappear in front of him when he stops his motorcycle. Then she appears again and he runs away. Check it out. Note to editors if you aren’t allowed to use

tell me your thoughts on it. Well that’s all I have for you for todays

thing to happen to me was hearing someone call my name when i was the only person home,
and at the time i lived at my parents house out on a dirst road. It was an old trailer that was talking apart
so i often wondered if there was a ghost or something there. Wait…. An old trailer that was talking apart.. I hope you meant falling apart. But thats creepy, I would have bolted out
of the house.. And that’s all from me today as always give

  1. Did you hear of a case long long ago that they named a serial killer the Candyman because he had drugged his kids candy with something and had killed his kids for money

  2. The "North Woods Hermit" was harmless. He only wanted to be left alone, and tried to leave items for trade for the things he used

  3. :00 the same thing that happend to Alexis Myers happend to me! I was just in the bathroom getting ready to sleep when the voice of a woman in her late 20's said my name and me ,being the dum-dum I am, opened the door. I know it wasn't my mom because my mom can't speak english as clear as the voice did and it wasn't my sister cuz, of course, she doesn't sound that old. This happend before but this one was the most clear.

  4. Did you check Teke-Teke, Kuchisake-Onna, The 8 Foot Tall Women aka Hachishaku-Sama, Hello Kitty Murderer, The Doll that Grows Real Hair, and The Single Braid Road? They are all scary, I guess… I just search up “Japanese or Chinese Urban Legends” they’re scary and as I told you I guess they are scary and… PLEASE DO THIS IM DRY OF URBAN LEGENDS!!! I even read a cursed poem aloud and almost died…

  5. I like Lindsay ivan, but do wonder what happened to Abbey kelly, anyone know, most amazing channel, can u guys let us know

  6. The scariest thing ever happened to me was I was at home and my dad was outside in the Yard doing work. I heard banging on the walls and it was really loud.When my dad came back in and I asked if he was banging on the walls or something and he said no. This was also in the summer so snow couldn't have been falling off the roof

  7. The black eyed children is one I believe in, however I didn’t always. A friend of mine and I just got back from a bar. Her and I sat in her car looking for my house key I had dropped. She looked in her review mirror and asked, “hey, who’s kid is that?” I looked back and saw a kid standing there, staring at us. I had my glasses on and could see what he was wearing, old fashioned clothes, complete with an old fashioned vest. I looked closer and saw he had no eyes. I turned around and looked at her, judging by her face she noticed the same. There was a street light behind him so his shadow was in front of him, he could see him walking to my friend’s side of the car, he stopped once he got next her and turned his head. No eyes! She seemed, I screamed then I covered her eyes and I closed mine. I could feel her tears on my hands, I knew I couldn’t let go. I chanted a Wiccan chant I had studied a few years ago. I waited, then opened my eyes. I took my hands off of her eyes, the boy was gone. I’ll never forget that moment. I was to scared to leave her car so I stayed at her place until morning. To this day I triple check all directions then run.

  8. All i know is im glad not to be seeing abby host. She was too cringey. Cute but trying to hard to be weird, dorky, and cute.

  9. During this day and age it seems like a good idea to always look around your surroundings because you don't know where danger lurks

  10. I promise I will eventually get around to saying you are my favorite host and your sense of humor is great and all that stuff but it will take 3 or 4 more comments before I can say anything other than Lindsay you are amazing and absolutely the most beautiful host in this video. 😉

  11. Fun Fact – The Alice Killings have a vocaloid song for them, ‘Alice Of Human Sacrifices’, and in the original stories, 4 people where killed – a female bartender, a male musician, a female teenager, and a pair of twins

    (I got the victim descriptions from a creepypasta website, so it may not be true)

  12. Bunny man bridge rumors that if you are there at midnight on Halloween the bunny man shows up and kills you. What they don’t tell you is that local police patrol the bridge on Halloween as it’s a single lane bridge but they aren’t there any other night. When we went you would hear the sound of chains as if someone was walking in shackles and a bunch of other weird things.

  13. My friends and i tried the -candyman-challenge, but heard a noise outside my bathroom and ran.lmao( i was also only 17(

  14. Guy at number 9, curious about how many robberies he committed:
    So 34 years living in the area × approximately 36 robberies a year = 1200 -1300 robberies during that time frame. Rookie numbers.

  15. I've never heard of the Black-Eyed Children until stories about them started to pop up on the internet out of nowhere. Some stories say they might be vampires, aliens or demons. It's also been said provided if they're real story encounters that some people got a feeling of dread when they're around. But it could be a hoax too because for all you know it could be kids or teens wearing black contacts just for a good spook. But if they are real I'd never want to have an encounter!

  16. I feel like if there were no horror movies for motherfuking crazy people to take ideas from there wouldn't be so many crazy motherfukers out there.

  17. I DO believe in Candy man. My cousin tried it as a joke at her brothers graduation. She went in the bathroom and did it. She came out and was fine, but started screaming. She said her back was burning. She pulled up her shirt and there was a big slash down her back. 🤷‍♀️🤷‍♀️

  18. No.6 Alice Killings…is that where they got the idea of one of the Vacoloid songs “Alice of Human Sacrifice”?

    No.3 Organ Stealers sounds like either the dark version of Jack the Reaper in history ‘or’ *Eyeless Jack*, a creepypasta who takes kidneys.

    No.2 Slenderman…no comment. I know he will be in this.
