Halloween Movies - Found Footage

Halloween Watchlist – Found Footage

In my first installment of this year’s Halloween Watchlist, I recommended some funny horror films, and mentioned my love of found footage horror movies. And that list even had a found footage movie on it: “Bad Ben.” So I decided to make this week’s list all about my favorite horror film genre. And while that […]

The Flatwoods Monster: A Legacy of Fear

The Flatwoods Monster – Review

The Flatwoods Monster: A Legacy of Fear Directed by Seth Breedlove | Small Town Monsters Much like the Mothman, the Dover Demon, or the Jersey Devil, the Flatwoods monster is one of those uniquely hard-to-classify beings from paranormal folklore.

Bermuda Triangle rogue wave theory

The Bermuda Triangle and the Rogue Wave Theory

Ahh, the Bermuda Triangle. The area of ocean between Bermuda, Florida, and Puerto Rico that supposedly is cursed, and is responsible for the loss of hundreds of aircraft and ships, as well as the lives of those on board.

Paranormal Investigator Finds Las Vegas Time Warp?

I try to keep an open mind about all things paranormal, but I initially approach everything from a more skeptical point of view. I have, on occasion, come across things I can’t easily rationalize or debunk. But for the most part, the vast majority of paranormal or supernatural occurrences can be easily explained. I hate […]

Strange Wolf-like Creature Killed in Montana

Social media is buzzing today about this story, about a strange, wolf-like creature that was shot and killed in Montana on May 16th.

Mysterious Sounds in Bucks County, PA

One of my favorite unexplained mysteries, from when I was a wee lad reading about such things in the library, is unexplained sounds. In fact, one of my very first “mysteries of the unexplained” encyclopedias had an entry devoted to the Barisal Guns phenomenon heard in 19th century Bangladesh, so named because they sounded like […]

Brooklyn Hyena and Out of Place Animals

The phenomenon of out of place animals is an interesting sub-genre of cryptozoology and Forteana, but not one that I am usually drawn to, with few exceptions.

SETI extraterrestrial signal

SETI Mystery Signal Elicits Hopes for Alien Contact

The big story today revolves around a mysterious signal that was detected by SETI, the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence. The signal apparently originated from a sun-like star some 94 light-years away, HD 164595. Now, UFO nerds enthusiasts like myself are remembering the “Wow!” signal that SETI found in 1977, a spiking radio signal from space which was […]

Human foot washes ashore on Vancouver Island, Canada

Human Foot Washes Up On Vancouver Island

The following story, about a human foot washing up on the beach of Vancouver Island, is weird, but also has a personal element of weirdness for me. More about that in a bit. But stories like this always catch my attention. So apparently, including this most recent foot, 13 feet have washed up on the […]
