Can you match the urban legend to its state of origin?

Tell us where these tall tales came from!

Sure, a ton of urban legends are universal. There are a bunch that are bigger than their place of origin. Every kid grew up thinking "Don't make that face or it will freeze that way."

But some of the best urban legends are hyper-local. They're so tied to the places they came from, either by geography or just by oral tradition.

So, let's see how well you know these fantastical fables and where they're from. If we didn't get your hometown haunted tale, make sure to teach us about it in the comments section below. We'd love to learn!

Got the first six, missed the last four.

How could I not know Boggy Creek? I've figured that living in an area where we got the newspaper, radio and TV ads for the movie as it slowly made the circuit of drive-ins from at least five cities, I've seen more advertising for this movie in my life than any other single film.
