Scariest Monsters in America is a documentary that counts down the top ten most frightening urban legends in the United States. It was narrated by Jake Hart, written by Adam Meyer, and streamed exclusively to the Tubi streaming service. Streetcar Entertainment handled the production of the feature.
Ghosts, poltergeists, cryptids, monsters, and urban legends are on full display in this horrifying documentary. As the narrator counts down through the list, we get a glimpse at some truly terrifying monsters that seem to haunt North America. From Mothman to Big Foot, we head to the West Coast, East Coast, Southwest, and even the Gulf Coast to hear these intriguing tales of hauntings and monsters.
These kinds of local folklore have always intrigued me. Growing up in Dallas, you heard often of the Lady of White Rock. It was supposedly about a young woman who fell off the pier in the early 1940s and drowned. She would walk the shoreline forever asking fishermen, swimmers, and others for a ride home to her mother. This one was not featured sadly.
As for the documentary itself, it was very well made. I had a lot of fun watching it and was truly enthralled by the description of these urban legends. I was not sure which ones they would pick for the countdown, but they chose some truly dark ones that would be the stuff of nightmares. I think it was intriguing and I enjoyed the documentary a great deal.
