There are so many of these and an awful lot of them have very dark themes, here's just a few:
A teenage boy and girl go to a dark remote spot to 'park' (make out in modern speak) over the radio comes an announcement about a convicted serial killer with a hook for one of his hands who has just escaped from a local psychiatric prison - the girl is scared, but the boy locks the doors & says they'll be fine. On hearing noises outside the girl panics again, annoyed the boy drives off at high speed.
When they get out of the car at her house, the girl screams, there, hanging from the car door is a bloody hook.
The myth goes that if you turn out all the lights, look into a mirror and say "Bloody Mary" 3 times, you will summon the spirit of Mary Worth, who was allegedly executed for being a witch.
The Vanishing Hitchhiker:
A man driving along a dark and lonely stretch of road picks up a female hitchhiker - when he pulls up outside her house she has vanished. He knocks on the door of the house only to be told that she is dead, having been killed many years ago at the exact spot where he picked her up.
Kuchisake-onna (slit mouthed woman) Japanese:
She walks around at night wearing a surgical mask, when she sees a child she asks "Am I pretty" - if the child answers "No" she kills them with a pair of scissors.
If the child answers "Yes" she removes her mask revealing her mouth slit from ear to ear and asks
"How about now"
If the child answers no, she cuts them in half.
If the child answers "Yes" she will slit their mouth like hers.
It is impossible to escape her, if you run she will simply appear in front of you again.
Himuro Mansion (Japan)
This is great, but quite long, so I'll post the link to full story http://www.scaryforkids.com/himuro-mansion/
(I found so many great and creepy and some downright gruesome urban myths & legends that I started a collaboration for them - please contribute any you know HERE )
