International Cryptozoology Museum Needs Your Help

It’s not often that I would use this platform to ask for help with something, but this is a cause I believe in and I’m going to do my best to get the word out there. If you are at all interested in Bigfoot, the Loch Ness monster, el chupacabra, Mothman, the Jersey Devil, the […]

Ghostly hitchhiker in Japan taxi

Japanese Taxi Drivers Reporting Ghostly Fares

The “Vanishing Hitchhiker” is one of the most popular ghost stories/urban legends out there, and for me, probably the first real ghost story I ever read about. There are many variations of the story, but it usually involves a good samaritan driving along a deserted stretch of road at night, and coming across a hitchhiker, […]

El Chupacabra in the Philippines?

Oh, el chupacabra. The Latin American urban legend that is supported by folklore that goes all the way back to the 1990s. The creature that witnesses say looks like a vampiric alien with huge bulging eyes, razor-sharp talons and a row of spines on its back, yet inevitable looks like a mangy dog whenever it is allegedly captured […]

Paranormal investigators in Britain cause damages

Ghost Detectors Commit Heritage Crime

Stories about paranormal investigators who trespass and then end up in some sort of trouble are a dime a dozen these days, but this one made me laugh. Not so much because of what happened or because this is a funny story, but mainly just the way the British media uses certain terms. GHOST hunters […]

Kylie Jenner chemtrails conspiracy theories

Kylie Jenner on Chemtrails: “Who is responcible?”

Who doesn’t love a good conspiracy theory? I love them. They can be great fun to think about, as long as you are open-minded to the fact that there may be nothing at all to them. But the problem with the chemtrails conspiracy theory is that there’s not much supporting evidence, and thus it’s one of […]

Guilty Pleasures: Survivorman Bigfoot

I really hate to include Survivorman Bigfoot in my guilty pleasures category, mainly because unlike the other shows that I have lumped into this category, Survivorman Bigfoot is actually very well-done. The concept is simple: survival expert Les Stroud strikes out into the wilderness, sometimes accompanied by local Bigfoot researchers, in order to find proof […]

Ghost photobomb

Ghost Photobombs Family in England

In a story that harkens back to the story of the samurai ghost boots, a family vacationing in England is now saying that they have a ghost photobombing a picture of their kids. I had many thoughts regarding that photo, and many of the same thoughts could be applied to this photo. People forget exactly […]

Loch Ness Monster Legend Inspired by Earthquakes?

Cryptozoology is a quirky field. It’s a rogues gallery of creatures, ranging from clever hoaxes and mythological misidentifications to beasts that leave interesting but frustratingly ambiguous evidence. And I’ve always felt that the Loch Ness monster fell somewhere in the middle of those spectrums. Sure, there’s lots of eyewitness testimony, and it goes back hundreds of […]

Top Ten Bigfoot movies

Top Ten Bigfoot Movies

So I came across this top ten list today on Dread Central, and had to share it. Bigfoot movies are among my favorite genre of horror movies, and I’ve even reviewed two of the movies mentioned here: Exists and Willow Creek. Even though I (sadly) haven’t seen most of these movies, it’s a good list […]
