Real scary stories that inspired Supernatural


Wendigo 

In episode 2, season 1, Sam and Dean come up against a big furry native legend, aka the Wendigo. Legend has it; this bad mother is actually a demonic creature that possesses the spirits of wayward humans, transforming their bodies into big-hairy man-suits of evil. Traditionally, the Wendigo has been spotted around the northern US, and parts of Canada. Experts on the subject of all-things beastly have declared Kenora, Canada, the “Wendigo capital of the world”, as it rakes in more sightings than anywhere else.
