Maybe you don't generally believe in "urban legends," or myths, or fantasy. Try MISFITS: see if it doesn't make a believer out of you. From Chapter 1, MISFITS absolutely terrified me. I'm not reassured living surrounded by woods, either, but as demonstrated in this novel, "Monsters" come out to play in communities, too--not only in dense forest.
MISFITS is really brutal; in fact, I'd label this extreme horror. There's also sexual violence, child/adolescent abuse, sociopathy, bullying, poetic justice, strong undiluted friendship, "first love," xenophobia, and a gore level over the top. Nonetheless, and despite the also-over-the-top fear factor [could I take any more?], I loved it. I will reread it, after the shock wears off.
