When I first starting reading this story I thought that Frankenfurter was going to make an appearance ....

The people who post in the fun and games section have a serious problem with gerbils, this includes and is not limited to Helen, JC and Oversword - they need to seek professional help stat.

They looked mad because he locked them out of their house in the rain! Haha, jk

This sounds like a great made up story designed to be scary, like all the 'hook man' stories. It's a great scary story though! Never heard it before, very cool

Srsly?  This story "REALLY" creeped you out?

Man door hook hand car door.

Seriously, who in that situation would wander around until they found someone's cabin, break in illegally and sleep in someone else's bed?  I'd just sleep in my car and wait until the weather cleared or till it was daytime and then see about figuring things out.  As would any normal person in that situation.

This is not an urban legend, it´s just a little boring story maybe based on a bad dream of a kid.

Nice urban myth.
Shame he could not use the gas from this story to fill up his car.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

We found this guy's car broke down,near our weekend cabin in the woods,it was pouring with rain and when we got back to our cabin the door was locked from the inside and looking thru the windows we could see this guy fast asleep on the bed and we couldn't wake him..so we spent the night in his car.
We hope we didn't scare him.

No, it's not realistic, and no, it's not a true urban legend, but y'know what? It makes a good campfire story. It's short, easy to remember, and can be told with a good sense of atmosphere, especially in the right environment.

Long story short, thanks for sharing!

I got a shiver when I heard that final line for the first time.

I know a few stoners and was with them one night and thought I'd tell them the same story; the look on their faces as the fear and paranoia set in was priceless.

So... it's raining and thundering... instead of staying in the car and calling someone, he just wanders around outside until he finds a cabin? Then he casually strolls in, assuming it to be empty, finds a room furnished with a bed and some paintings, still assumes the place is empty, and goes to sleep. He fails to notice that the portraits on the wall feature realistic rainfall and possibly lightning.

I know this, like most ULs, is just meant to be a cautionary/scary tale but I wish the people that come up with this stuff would put a bit more effort into making it believable.

OMG! You are hilarious! You made me spray cake all over my keyboard!!!!
