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 […]

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

Any good paranormal investigator will tell you that historical research is one of the most important tools in their arsenal. 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 […]

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 […]

John Podesta on Ancient Aliens

John Podesta on “Ancient Aliens,” says Hillary Would Have Declassified UFO Info

With a few rare exceptions, I don’t even approach anything political here on the blog, since I like to create a fun space and we are already bombarded daily by political garbage from pretty much every other news and social media outlet in existence. But how could I resist this completely bonkers story? I’ll summarize, […]

El Chupacabra? Or Just CGI?

A story about a mysterious, dog-killing creature was making the rounds on the internet today, especially because a pretty clear photo of the alleged beast was reportedly captured while it was on its rampage. The animal, described as being half-dog and half-human, bears a striking resemblance to what a lot of people think of as […]

Is the Jersey Devil Really Just Bigfoot?

Is the Jersey Devil Really Just Bigfoot?

I have often mentioned the Dover Demon as being one of my favorite cryptids, as it is one of the more bizarre “monsters” that people have reported seeing. Put plainly, it just doesn’t fit in with the vast majority of monster sightings, as it’s not a Bigfoot, it’s not a lake monster, and it’s not […]
