Ghost Hunters Update! For Real This Time!

For years now, there’s been speculation about when Ghost Hunters would return to the airwaves. Jason Hawes has been a bit cagey about why SyFy dumped the show back in 2016, and he’s been dropping hints for a long time that the show would return. And in early April, it was officially announced that a […]

Montauk Monster of Staten Island

Montauk Monster on Staten Island?

Staten Island is famous (or infamous) for many things, but monsters and cryptids are not really among them. Sure, we’ve had lots of UFO sightings, creepy clowns, mystery sounds, alligators in the sewers, and even a Bigfoot sighting back in the ’70s, but sadly (for me, anyways) we don’t have a cryptid, a Staten Island […]

Daughter Shares Ghost Footage from Dad’s Bedroom

It seems like every week, there’s new “ghost footage” that is purported to be the be-all end-all proof of the paranormal. Usually the picture of video is pretty easily debunked as a hoax, or a smartphone app, or simply a photographic or video error that looks spooky and supernatural, but really isn’t. This story was […]

Man Shot At After Being Mistaken for Bigfoot

Imagine being out in the woods, on a nice Sunday afternoon, putting up some targets that you plan to shoot at. Then, suddenly, someone starts shooting at you.

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?

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, […]

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 […]

Amityville Horror House

An Amityville Horror Connection

Ghost hunters use it learn about the locations they are investigating, and why a certain spot may have paranormal activity. Murders, suicides, and other tragedies such as horrific conditions at medical facilities seem to become […]

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 […]
