Into the 400 - Bigfoot movie review

Into the 400 – Review

Into the 400 Directed by Shane Carpenter It was bound to happen sooner or later. I’ve been on a winning streak of sorts lately, watching and reviewing paranormal documentaries, and being pleasantly surprised by the quality of what I was watching, and sincerely enjoying the films. Most have been offerings from the Small Town Monsters […]

Ghost Hunting in the Adirondacks, Part 2

Ghost Hunting in the Adirondacks, Part 2

Now we knew it wasn’t a needle in a haystack, a small, dark gray ring lost in the middle of the Adirondacks somewhere along the trail. It was right there in camp. My wife looked at me and said, “We are going back for it.” If you read my last post on my most recent […]

Assquatch Taxidermy

Assquatch and Other Taxidermy Oddities

The newest Bigfoot-related story making the rounds on the social media newsfeeds lately is the Assquatch – a taxidermy creation using the hindquarters of a deer (anus and all, apparently) to make Sasquatch faces. Some are cute, and some are downright disturbing. But this is far from the first cryptid to be created from actual […]

Monkey on the Loose in Massachusetts

Monkey on the Loose in Massachusetts

I’ve always been fascinated by out of place animal stories. There’s just something so subtly unsettling about them. Because ultimately, they can’t all just be escaped circus animals or exotic pets. When I was 5 years old, there was a report of a baby elephant seen in my neighborhood of Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. Nothing ever […]

Haunted Houses in the Age of Quarantine

Thanks to COVID-19, we are all adjusting to a new normal. Commutes to work are now as simple as rolling out of bed and turning on our laptops. Children “attend class” via Zoom or other video conferencing applications. Grocery shopping requires masks, gloves, and wiping down food items with disinfecting wipes before putting them on […]

Bigfoot Running Challenge

The Bigfoot Running Challenge

In these trying times of social distancing and self-isolation, my wife and I are always trying to find fun things to do as a family with my son, to just get us out of the house and to get some exercise. Since nearly everything is closed, we mainly stick to walking through the park right […]

The Back 80: A Modern Day Bigfoot Encounter

The Back 80: A Modern Day Bigfoot Encounter – Review

The Back 80: A Modern Day Bigfoot Encounter Directed by Alan Megargle & Jesse Morgan The Back 80: A Modern Day Bigfoot Encounter is a documentary that is precisely what its title implies – a focused examination on one woman’s fairly recent encounter with an alleged Bigfoot. There are of course some other corroborating stories […]

Ghost hunting in the Adirondacks

Ghost Hunting in the Adirondacks

“His thought turned to the Ring, but there was no comfort there, only dread and danger.” – Me, thinking about breaking some bad news to my wife (from J.R.R. Tolkien, of course) I have been a camper for as long as I can remember. I think the earliest photos of my parents taking me camping […]

Finding Jay – Review

Finding Jay Directed by Jay Bachochin Like so many of us, I currently find myself at home, in isolation. The world is a truly scary place right now. Blogging, especially about the paranormal, seems silly, a guilty pleasure that should not be indulged during this time of uncertainty. I was unsure if I’d even continue […]

On the Trail of UFOs

On the Trail of UFOs – Review

On the Trail of UFOs is not your traditional UFO documentary series. And that’s a very good thing. The latest offering from Small Town Monsters has the crew casting their gaze upwards this time, scanning the skies for potential visitors from afar, rather than searching for the usual beasties from small town America. While their […]
