Everyone's heard at least one urban legend, be it the campfire favorite about a hook-wielding killer or a warning about the explosive effects of Pop Rocks candy. This addictive series from Bio replays some of the most enduring urban legends, and then investigates whether or not the stories are based in fact. Every episode contains at least one strange-but-true tale thrown in with the fictional legends--and it's often surprising which is which. This collection includes 15 episodes, including "Weird Woundings" and "What a Way to Go," as well as 45 "mini-myths."
Description by New Video Group:
The world is full of urban legends --tales that spread like viruses around the planet, mutating and evolving until no one knows if they are true or simply legend.
This collection from BIO presents stories that have taken just such a journey. They are so hard-wired into our DNA, we never think to question their truth. A few examples: universities routinely award a 4.0 grade point average to students who have suffered the loss of a roommate. A businessman awakes from a one-night stand in a tub of ice water to find his kidney has been stolen. A killer leaves behind a message written in blood, "Aren't you glad you didn't turn on the lights'"
Each episode of URBAN LEGENDS presents three such tales, some shocking, some amusing, some frightening, some just bizarre. The catch' Only one of the stories is true. All is revealed at the end of the show.
