i agree with Jackie, plus i believe this episode as appeared in the movie urban legends, the actor that is hanging from the tree, is the guy from Dawson’s Creek

Yeah definately,
This is an urban legend, one of those, it happened to a friend of mine kinda things. It’s like the babysitter who gets a call from the upstairs bedroom of the house she’s sitting at, or the axe man hiding in the back seat of your car.

That story is an Urban Legend. I collect Urban Legend books and I have that story in almost all of them. It is also in the movie Urban Legend like Andreia said.

I have seen this story on TV in several movies…it is as fake as big foot. Who makes up these fake stories?? It spoils the chance of the others being real. Hey my house is haunted by the abominable snowman…. anyone believe me… he throws snow cones at me at 12 midnight everynight. Then when I go to sit down in my favorite chair it is all iced over. All I get on the TV is snowy movies….weird…. this is a true story….

Umm, where is Arlo Road? I’m from SI and will admit I don’t know every road on the Island, but I have no clue where this one was. PS: It’s not a common urban legend in SI, showing you the accuracy of this one!

This is indeed an urban legend. If you visit, you will find it in the horrors section. It’s similar to the story of a boyfriend’s and girlfriend’s near encounter with the crazed lunatic with a hook for a hand who escapes from a nearby asylum. The story states that they were alone in the woods in their car when they hear on the radio that an inmate had escaped from the nearby asylum. The inmate is said to be extremely dangerous and has a hook instead of a hand. The boyfriend tries to get intimate with her, but she feels uncomfortable and persuades him to drive her home. Upon their arrival at her house, they discover a bloody hook hanging from the car door’s handle. Like the story mentioned here, pure fantasy.

This story so comes out of a movie scene. I remember seeing it in this movie called campfire tales. A bunch of teens telling urban legends.

Skid Love says:

Ok, I see everyone thinks that this is an urban legend. Which could be true but at the same time most stories come from some sort of a fact it maybe something completely different but through the years it’s changed into something that no buddy believes actually happened. All I’m saying is don’t believe what people tell you is an urban legend was more then likely something that really happened it was just a different curcimstance. The facts are that we don’t know that any of the this stories on this site are real or not. It’s all how you the person reading prosives it. With that said, to the ones that said how can that be true he was hung by his neck. You should really pay attention. It says, “HIS THROAT WAS SLIT.” He could of been hanging by his feet. It wasn’t on the hood of the car either it was on the roof. Take what I said and everyone else said as you want. Urban Legend maybe, or maybe not. Who really knows.

By the way Mackenzie Highland Ave. T’s up with Arlo Road There are two cemetaries in the area. I find that kind of funny. Not trying to get smart with anyone just stating a fact

Ghost Hunter says:

I grew up at 49 apt 1B Arlo Road (I’m 40), it is a bunch of apartments surrounding by really rich houses. It’s a f#cked up place. This legend has been around. The place it supposedly happened is behind 101 Arlo Road, down the driveway to the left next to a hundred and fifty year old cemetary. The cemetary is/was haunted by the “man in white” I never saw hiim, but as a kid, around dusk, you knew to get out of the cemetary. Someone would eventually yell the man in white and god forbid if you were the last one through the fence, you’d sh#t yourself. If you do an online search, you’ll see that a couple went missing in the summer of 78. We all thought it was son of sam but in the end, they never found her body. There are things out there. I know. When I was eighteen, I moved as far away as I could to California. One of my friends still lives there and he says that the hill has changed. Now there are college students living in the apartments from St. John’s University. Early last year, behind 111 Arlo, a girl went missing again. He says that he thinks the guy is back. If you are ever there, go in the day…it is a beautiful place. But don’t go at night, trust me, don’t go at night.

Anything is possible. ever thought the the movie was based on these kind of stories- real, perhaps…

Mindy says:

February 21, 2006, 11:29 pm

Well I am not here to dis, just to state mi facts! WHo knows if it is real or who knows if its fake! But Vanessa has a point! Wat if it was based on a true story! But I do know dat who ever put that story on here is stupid cuz its so common! You coulda came up wid sumthin better than dat!

eric says:

February 25, 2006, 10:52 pm

yea its an urban legend, but it could’ve happened at least once and i hope the story don’t give any idiots some ideas

Donna says:

March 2, 2006, 9:49 am

Hey! I live in England and i would have to agree with the people at the top of this page, this is the exact same thing as is in the Urban Legend film. If anyone does go, keep an open mind, you never know!

Eric Long says:

March 14, 2006, 4:33 pm

“fyi bigfoot is real”

yup! infact bigfoot was spotted here in SI! :O

marie says:

March 17, 2006, 9:22 pm

yeah big foot exists …..and i’ve got pigs flying out of my a**!okay what i’m wondering is why this guy hung himself. i mean come on, he went to take a pee and wound up hanging himself? and what’s with the going near the forest to get some TLC? so clique!everyone knows that the movie theatres is the new thing!!!

Giant 10 says:

March 18, 2006, 2:20 pm

The guy didn’t hang himself, he was killed by an ecscaped looney from a mental health hospital.

I enjoy a lot of these stories on this site, and they really give me goosebumps! However, this can’t be true. I’ve heard many versions of this story that IS FICTION such as, “Knock, Knock, Knock” and “Tap, Tap, Tap” and so on forth. I actually watched a show where a story was to be true or false. This story was on the show but was claimed false. There is similar facts and details to it though, as in teenagers could get killed by an escaped prisoner. Don’t fret, I saw this on TV.

amanda says:

April 8, 2006, 4:49 pm

all of you that don’t know how to read need to shut up. only two poeple on here have a good point its how you procive it. most tall tails are at one time or another are started from a true story like skid love said. i’m not saying i believe it nor disbelive it but some of you still need to pass the 1st grade because you don’t know how to read a couple of lines and keep it straight.

Hmmm….. i have heard this story so many times,
some say its true some dont. I think it may of happened in a way. i think he was hung in a different way. i dont even think he was hung! his throat was slashed. he could of been thrown on the tree. but thats just me. you believe what you want to. you never know…….

yowie says:

July 25, 2006, 5:16 am

****! Utter utter ****! I’ve heard that story except here in Australia the young guy was eaten up by a weredingo and his girl friend went mad and ended up becoming a pop star.

July 25, 2006, 5:20 am

I believe it. I believe every word. I know the spot and I saw UFOs there and I also met an Alien there. Yeah, I know the spot and I think I know the man who hanged the beau. If you look at the old oak with the yellow ribbon around it, you’ll find rope burns on the branch. I haven’t seen it myself, man but yeah.

Stephanie mellies says:

July 29, 2006, 12:27 pm

This is so fake! It came on on supernatular on the wb once so why would someone take something so horrible and put it on tv if it actually happened that would be totally disrespectful to the people who actually died……if it happened, which i doubt.

angel says:

August 10, 2006, 7:27 am

wat ever jackie CHAN u r such a story wrecker get a life.

Travis says:

August 11, 2006, 5:57 am

You think that just because its disrespectful people wouldn’t put it on tv? And just because it was on tv or in the movies, doesn’t mean that it orginated there. For example, Sleepy Hollow, an ancient urban legend thats been around forever. Yet there are numerious stupid movies about it.

Again, with stories like this, its all about how people percieve it and retell the story.

I have lived on Arlo Road for the past year now, and I have never heard of this ‘story’ until now. I wasn’t able to find anything about a missing woman in 1978. However Ghost Hunter is right, a girl did disappear from Arlo last year while she was visting one of the students living in the apartments on the hill. I find the hanging story pretty hard to believe. The only thing scary about Arlo Road, is how little parking there is.

nick says:

September 9, 2006, 9:38 pm

thats a a real scay store but i will never live in that house

Kacie says:

September 22, 2006, 7:17 pm

I think my brain broke from trying to read a bunch of these comments. You people really need to stop trolling sights and being jackasses if you can’t spell or be at least halfway grammatically correct. And why are you here if you don’t believe in something, even a little? Trolls.
As for the story, it may now be an Urban Legend, but who’s to say there’s no truth in it? It had to come from somewhere! The way I’ve always heard it was that they ran out of gas and the boy told the girl to lock the doors and hide in the floorboard of the car with a jacket over her while he went back to find a gas station, and they made some sort of signal knock so she’d know it was him and open the doors..hours go by and nothing. Finally she hears a noise, a scraping sort of noise which is followed by dull thudding sounds hitting the roof of the car. She is afraid, but doesn’t move, and eventually the noises stop and she falls asleep. In the morning she’s awakened by a knocking on the window..a sherriff. He asks her to step out of the car and over to his car, and advises her not to look back, but she does anyway. The sight awaiting her is a gruesome one..Her boyfriend, throat slit, is hanging upside down from a tree above the car. The noises she heard were his fingernails scraping the roof when the tree branch moved in the wind, and the thudding noise was the blood from his slit throat draining from his lifeless body.

puhhh-leaze… that story is sooo incredibly fake(but still scary)no one believes these dumb stories they r soooooooooo fake only idiots believe them… also wouldnt the “killer” have gotten the girl too???

lex says:

Hey I live in Staten Island and know that area well. Those graveyards(there are actually 3) on the side of that hill. Some f***** up stuff has gone on in there over teh years paranormal and otherwise. The story of the boyfriend and girlfriend is an urban legend made to make the story scarier , but I believe the 1978 thing may have happened. Again the girl disappearing recently is true. Ive been in teh graveyard around dusk and it gets freaky. I have family members buried tere and I accompany my grandmother to put flowers on their graves a few times a year. There is definitely smething to it. I never heard of the man in white but to be honest i never looked into it I will though interesting.


November 7, 2006, 1:51 pm

I think that the story could be true, and maybe the killer didn’t kill the girl cause it wanted her to live miserably for the rest of her life, however long that was. I think the story could use more description, like how was the guy hangin from the tree? his fingers, toes, his god dam d***?

Machle says:

November 21, 2006, 3:26 pm

If that is real then she should be able to see him from the windsheld.Me and my friend were fighting about it and we figherd out that it has to be fake or something because she realy should be able to see him.THIS STORY MUST BE FAKE.IT DOSE NOT MAKE SENCE.

Machle says:

November 21, 2006, 3:29 pm

Because if the branch was over the hode of the car she would be able to see him.But who or what killed him.

Michelle says:

November 21, 2006, 3:30 pm

She would be able to see her boyfriend if he was scratching the hood of the car beacause she would probably just scream or something instead of getting out to see what is happenning if she saw her boyfriend! It couldn’t have been her boyfriend scratching on the car when he was hanging from a branch. THIS STORY IS FAKE! My friend and I both disagree with coment number three and agree with number four. I reapeat THIS STORY IS FAKE!

Hannah says:

December 31, 2006, 9:24 pm

Well, she wouldn’t specifically be able to see him if it were dark and the windows were fogged up. LOL anyways, I have heard this story many times as a child. It was told in different ways and different details, but it’s definitely not real.

Derek says:

January 8, 2007, 10:24 pm

gee havent heard this story before lol URBAN LEGEND

kaylee says:

January 9, 2007, 3:03 pm

ive heard this story soo many times. guys i really think this story is fake i mean there are sick people out there. come on think about it. how about the mass murder in texas with the chain saw massure that was real as all hell. my mother remembers it. anyway you never really know.

Susan says:

January 18, 2007, 8:28 pm

Well if this is fake,which I really am not sure, that’de be freaky!! The girl walked out, and saw her boyfriend hanging with a cut throat! You know I would’ve leapt back in the car and drive, drive away! Then get the cops and never go back!

Janet says:

January 18, 2007, 8:39 pm

My sister supposly died there. She went there and never came back. I’ve been trying to find the truth to that place…But its still freaky. Every time I’ve gone, I see a shadowy figure…too broad to be my sisrer. But whoever it is…I will stop them. And find my sister, or her body.For proper burial. I will avenge her.

Ice Queen says:

March 4, 2007, 4:14 pm

it’s creepy.but it’s SO fake. it sounds like some story an immature 10 year old would tell to sum1 on halloween.

Scary Story Lover says:

March 11, 2007, 7:19 pm

OK. Well I beleive it. But in a diffrent way. A young boy and a young girl drive out into the woods to make out. Boy gets out and goes into the woods to use the bathroom. Boy does not come back and girl drifts off to sleep. Girl wakes up to a scrapping noise. She gets out and sees boy hanging from a tree by his feet. His throat slit and his finger nails scrapping the roof of the car. Its believable. There are so many stories like that. The hook. Its the SAME story but the killer had a hook. O well I have heard so many scary stories. It was a good story!!

hjl says:

March 23, 2007, 5:35 pm

Thats sad and scary because who killed him i wonder who it was im really scared that pissed me off

Lacey Mae!* That's what they call me ;) says:

June 18, 2007, 10:50 am

uhh yeah guys? this is definately taken outta the movie “urban legend.” whoever posted this needs to do a lil more research before they go tryin to fool ppl. DUH! very good job, all of you who caught (like me) that this idea is totally unoriginal!

Totally an Urban Legend. I’ve heard this one in every state in the USA.

This1 says:

July 4, 2007, 4:23 pm

Besides if the “man” was hung how could his fingers be scratching the hood of the car? Unless he was being hung by his feet instead of his neck. Why didnt shawty see her man through the window. I live on S.I. and there are alot of mysteries. this must be one.

Brianna says:

July 5, 2007, 1:37 pm

OMG i thought this was scary but if everyone is saying its fake it just ruins everything and makes me less scared… and ruin it for the people who believe it (not i like i do) i just think some people are over reacting i mean i know its fake but still……. so what!!!!… let other people have their fun!!!!!!!!! they came to this site to get scared and all these people are ruining it for them come on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Charm says:

July 6, 2007, 12:49 pm

Though this story is fake, it sprang out of the lovers lane murders in Texarkana. So it is an urban ledgen, but based in part on reality

billy says:

August 13, 2007, 3:35 pm

i dont get it

loco says:

August 17, 2007, 5:05 pm

Urban Legends are stories BASED on SOME REAL facts of a news story, and the rest of the story is made up. As with ghost stories we never know which part of them are true or not unless history is researched.

Shyann says:

August 20, 2007, 7:34 pm

Yeah this does sound like urban legend. ๐Ÿ˜›

Jacksonian says:

July 10, 2008, 8:00 am

Of course it’s real my friends…….you see Im the one who cut that young man’s throat. I then hung his lifeless body with a sturdy thin rope by his feet, not the neck, so the blood could drip onto the windshield – for my sweet angel inside the car. The problem was, I lowered the body too far down the massive tree branch. Serendipitously, when his arms flopped down, his knuckles were just close enough to start scraping on the hood. Oh the joy that filled my heart as she started to scream…..scream for me my sweet…..scream for me…..ha ha ha ha ha ha

Lacey says:

August 14, 2008, 12:17 pm

Where did this source come from?! You have got to be kidding me, an Urban Legend no less…I highly doubt originated on Staten Island. Pathetic.

JMCyan says:

August 21, 2008, 3:07 pm

I live on arlo road in SI,3 years now, the only creepy thing here are the residents, all psychos and college kids. There are quite a few graveyards near hear, one right down the street from me. That place is quite creepy and a lot of the older graves have free mason symbols on them( near hillside ave & victory blvd, before it hits forest ave) More interesting locations are the abandoned monastery near st. johns college(in the wooded area in between the track and the college) and the old sea view hospital(across from the new one, its gated, but there are a few gaping holes.) Both of those places are incredibly creepy, and very decrepit, so be careful you donรข??t hurt yourself if you go at night.

Actually I’ve heard this ‘story’ many of times. I’ve heard a tiny different version too. A couple drove out into the woods and they broke down. The boyfriend went to go find help and told her to lock the doors. She waited and waited and than fell asleep. The next day she was woken up from a scratching noise on the roof, she unlocked the doors and got out just to see her boyfriend dangling from a tree with his hands chopped off on the roof scratching. This is the story of Cropsy.

Jenna says:

May 14, 2011, 12:37 pm

I heard a differen’t version of this. A couple driving down an isolated road ran out of gas so they parked under a tree and the boyfriend went to get more, a few hours after he left the girlfriend heard scratching on the roof of the car, she ignored it and eventually fell asleep, she was awoken my a tapping on the window. She looked up and saw a police officer, she opened the door and he said “come with me please and don’t turn around” she got out of the car and ignoring the officers warning she turned around and saw her boyfriend hanging upsidedown, dead from the tree. The scraping noise was coming from his fingernails. I heard it on TV when I was a kid so I can’t remember the location or anything, but I never forgot the story because it scared me so much

so no matter what anyone says this place is insane i’ve been there first hand. i thought it was a joke to i came out to pee and i heard this weird noise i thought it was my friend. so i followed it what happens next is unheard of something slammed me into a tree. i passed out. next thing i know when i woke up i was hanging upside down from a tree tied up. i screamed and my friends came for me. i had nightmares for about a month after of flash backs of what occured….all i remember is something counting 1…2….3……

I first heard that story at a slumber party, except that the young fellow had been murdered by an escaped psychopath with a hook instead of a hand. As I was 10 or 11 at the time, the story scared the hell out of me and kept me awake for a week or two. The oldest one in the book.
