It’s finally Spooky Season, and we are diving into the deep end of our October series on Urban Legends! This week, we have an absolute classic. We all know the legend of the Hook Hand, the Hook, or the Hookman. An urban legend about a killer with a pirate-like hook for a hand attacking a couple in a parked car. In many versions of the story, the killer is typically portrayed as a faceless, silhouetted old man wearing a raincoat and rain hat that conceals most of his features, especially his face. What version of this monstrosity will show its face in this week’s installment? There is only one way to find out! Happy Spooky Season! Enjoy!
