The Bray Road Beast – Review

The Bray Road Beast Directed by Seth Breedlove | Small Town Monsters When you think of Wisconsin, what immediately comes to mind? The Milwaukee Brewers and the Green Bay Packers? TV shows like Happy Days and Laverne & Shirley? Or my personal favorites, beer and cheese? Of course, those are all hallmarks of the state. And […]

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. Part extraterrestrial, part robot, and part creature from an alternate dimension, the legend of the Flatwoods […]

Boggy Creek Monster – Review

Boggy Creek Monster: The Truth Behind the Legend Directed by Seth Breedlove I have been aware of Small Town Monsters and their documentaries on, well, small town monsters, for a while now. But I never got around to watching them. A number of the titles have been on my Amazon Prime Watch List for months, […]

Book Review: Mothman: Evil Incarnate

Mothman: Evil Incarnate by Loren Coleman The tagline for Loren Coleman’s new book Mothman: Evil Incarnate is “The Unauthorized Companion to The Mothman Prophecies,” referring to the book written by John Keel and published in 1975. And that tagline sums up this book very well. Mothman: Evil Incarnate is by no means a stand-alone book. Rather, […]

Bigfoot erotica Leslie Cockburn

Bigfoot Erotica is Now a Part of U.S. Politics

I have tried very hard to stay away from politics on this blog. But since the 2016 election, it has become increasingly more and more difficult to do so. And a Congressional race in Virginia just had to get bizarre enough to attract the attention of the paranormal and cryptozoology communities. In a completely bananas […]

In Search Of... Zachary Quinto History Channel

TV Review: In Search Of…

Whenever the inevitable question comes up regarding what first got me interested in the paranormal, my answer is always the same: the old In Search Of… television show hosted by Leonard Nimoy. In fact, I even make reference to it here on the blog in my bio. In Search Of… was a syndicated TV series that ran from 1977 to […]

Strange wolf-like animal shot in Montana

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. It’s clearly not a pure breed wolf, but people are claiming it may be the thought to be extinct direwolf, the infamous Dogman, a werewolf, or some other mythical devil dog. DNA […]

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. I think it’s safe to say that creatures like Bigfoot, Mothman, the Jersey Devil, the Loch Ness monster, and the Dover Demon are far more intriguing than a […]

Bigfoot Spotted in New Jersey

Last month, I did a blog post about the Jersey Devil and how the legend may have originally been borne of people simply misidentifying Bigfoot. After the post was published, I had a number of people contact me privately and on social media because they were surprised to hear that Bigfoot could indeed be living […]
