    Urban Legends are always terrifying, no matter the story. But, what's worse, the monsters in the tales or the real people they are based on?

We might not be the Mystery Gang but we're here to unmask the myths. To do this, they're kicking off the new season by talking about the Hooked Hand Man of Staten Island, his origins at the horrific Willowbrook State School and the prolific serial Killer Andre Rand. Was he Cropsey or did he copy a real monster?
