The Rake urban legend dates back to summer of 2003. The creepypasta derives from local media interest in a human-like creature allegedly spotted in Idaho, US. A horror movie based on the urban legend was released in 2018. The plot of the movie focuses on the creature which is believed to “attack humans for unknown reasons and cause victims psychological trauma.”
