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 […]

Terror in the Skies – Review

At this point, the Small Town Monsters crew are essentially The Beatles of the paranormal world. Not just in the quality of their productions, but also much like the Beatles, the frequency with which they are released. The fact that they turn out amazing documentary after amazing documentary, and in such quick succession, is nothing […]

Bigfoot: In Your State?

Bigfoot: In Your State?

You might recognize this Bigfoot footage: The Patterson-Gimlin Film (1967). Ever since this movie came out, people all over have declared they have seen the bipedal giant. However, Bigfoot stories go further back than the 1960s. Native American tribes have been sharing Bigfoot stories for centuries. In the Kwakiutl tribe, they tell the story of […]

On the Trail of Bigfoot – Review

Small Town Monsters has quickly become King of the Mountain when it comes to documentaries on cryptids. Each offering from Seth Breedlove and company has been a breath of fresh air in the era of schlock shows like Ghost Adventures and Mountain Monsters. Tight pacing, stunning cinematography, brilliant musical scores, and pitch-perfect narration are all […]

Real Scary Halloween Movies

Halloween Watchlist – Real Scary

Welcome to Part Three of my Halloween Watchlist. In Part One, I recommended some horror movies that would make you laugh. Part Two was a collection from my favorite horror genre, found footage movies. Those films may be scary because of their realism, but nothing is more terrifying than real-life stories of the supernatural, paranormal, […]

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, […]

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 […]

Monsters of Massachusetts

Book Review: Monsters of Massachusetts

Monsters of Massachusetts by Loren Coleman Massachusetts is probably not the first place people think of when they think about monsters. Well, aside from the big green variety if you’re a sports fan, maybe. Mention Bigfoot to anyone, and their first thought is probably the sprawling wilderness of the Pacific Northwest. The idea of a lake […]
