Step into the mystical world of Gullah folklore as we unravel the eerie legend of the ‘Boo Hag’, a malevolent spirit that is said to prey upon unsuspecting victims as they sleep, draining their energy and vitality. 

In this chapter, we will not only look into the psychology behind sleep paralysis but also delve into the origins of this eerie legend, tracing its roots back to West African traditions and its evolution in the Gullah culture of the Lowcountry. 


Modern Myths is a series running alongside Urban Legends. Not all legends have enough information to justify a full chapter, but that doesn't mean they are not fascinating tales worth sharing. These smaller chapters will arrive in the week between Urban Legends' new chapters, giving you new content on a weekly basis during a season's run.
