    I like the idea of examining where urban legends originated, but this documentary has an attitude to it that really grossed me out. It's sensationalist, voyueristic, and a little dumb. Such as when they walk into the dark woods, look at a random tree among hundreds of trees, compare it to a 60 year old photograph, and determine it was probably the tree a young woman was killed at. Nope.
