We tend to think of big cities as being creep-filled, and suburbs and small towns as being safer and less dangerous. But was Halloween filmed in Chicago? Was Amityville Horror filmed in New York City? Did Texas Chainsaw Massage take place in Austin? No! Those shock fests took place in the suburbs of those cities! Also Texas Chainsaw at SXSW is a great idea for a movie, dibs on the script.

 

As it turns out, literally every locale has its share of wild, creepy stories in its past. If you thought there was anywhere you could go that was was safe, you thought very, tragically wrong. We asked our fans on Facebook to tell us about the most bizarre, shudder-worthy stuff from their own hometowns, and they gave us an earful.

So now we're wondering about the statistical correlation between serial killers and Cracked readers.

Warning: Some of these are pretty disturbing.
