The Headless Horseman
The Headless Horseman is a demonic figure that has roots as far back as The Middle Ages. He is portrayed as a headless man who rides his horse while holding his head high in order to see. His weapon of choice is a whip made entirely out of a human spine. According to one version of the story, it is when he stops riding that people die. Upon stopping, he will call out a name, and that person will drop dead immediately.
