    *Closed*

    Dead livestock mysteriously drained of blood. A tall spooky figure with red glowing eyes that appears before disaster strikes. Giant monsters lurking in the bottom of lochs and lakes. The wailing of banshees in the dead of night. Cryptozoology is the study of unidentified animals. However, most of the world knows these creepy cryptids by their urban legends. Give me your heebies and your jeebies. Let’s make some creepy cryptid urban legends.

    Hmmm... That's hard to say. I guess it depends on the context? Or how it's written? But I honestly just want some good old freaky urban legend type stories. So if you think it'll fit, that's fine. ^.^

    "A tall spooky figure with red eyes" is what caught my eyes. So I could really have fun with this. Crazy
