Strange But True by Donald J. Sobol

Strange But True – Vintage Book Review

Strange But True by Donald J. Sobol They say the apple doesn’t fall very far from the tree. And that’s definitely the case with my son. He inherited my goofy sense of humor, my love of sci-fi and horror movies, my passion for video games, and of course, my interest in the paranormal. As soon […]

Subway Snake New York City

Huge Snake Spotted on NYC Subway Platform

One fascinating aspect of cryptozoology that tends to get overlooked time and time again is that of out of place animals. People tend to be drawn to the more bizarre creatures, such as Bigfoot, Mothman, the Loch Ness monster, or el chupacabra, which is completely understandable. But I think it’s equally fascinating to have known, […]

Into the 400 - Bigfoot movie review

Into the 400 – Review

Into the 400 Directed by Shane Carpenter It was bound to happen sooner or later. I’ve been on a winning streak of sorts lately, watching and reviewing paranormal documentaries, and being pleasantly surprised by the quality of what I was watching, and sincerely enjoying the films. Most have been offerings from the Small Town Monsters […]

Monsters of the Deep by Nick Redfern

Monsters of the Deep – Book Review

Monsters of the Deep by Nick Redfern I’ve never really shied away from the fact that when it comes to cryptids, I’m probably least interested in those of the aquatic variety. Lake monsters, sea serpents, and other anomalous water-based creatures just don’t typically hold my interest. And to be totally honest, I’m not even sure why. […]

Ghost Hunting in the Adirondacks, Part 2

Ghost Hunting in the Adirondacks, Part 2

Now we knew it wasn’t a needle in a haystack, a small, dark gray ring lost in the middle of the Adirondacks somewhere along the trail. It was right there in camp. My wife looked at me and said, “We are going back for it.” If you read my last post on my most recent […]

New Loch Ness Monster Photograph?

New Loch Ness Monster Photograph?

Last week, I wrote about the giant squid that washed ashore in South Africa, and how interesting it was that I was concurrently reading Nick Redfern’s new book, Monsters of the Deep. Well, today my feed is abuzz about this new photo allegedly showing the Loch Ness Monster, which is obviously also covered in Nick’s […]

Giant Squid Washes Ashore in South Africa

Giant Squid Washes Ashore in South Africa

Synchronicity is a funny thing. All week, I’ve been reading an advance copy of Monsters of the Deep, the new book by Nick Redfern which covers all sorts of sea serpents and lake monsters, and then I come across this story about a giant squid washing up on a South African beach. Of course, sea serpents […]

Assquatch Taxidermy

Assquatch and Other Taxidermy Oddities

The newest Bigfoot-related story making the rounds on the social media newsfeeds lately is the Assquatch – a taxidermy creation using the hindquarters of a deer (anus and all, apparently) to make Sasquatch faces. Some are cute, and some are downright disturbing. But this is far from the first cryptid to be created from actual […]

Monkey on the Loose in Massachusetts

Monkey on the Loose in Massachusetts

I’ve always been fascinated by out of place animal stories. There’s just something so subtly unsettling about them. Because ultimately, they can’t all just be escaped circus animals or exotic pets. When I was 5 years old, there was a report of a baby elephant seen in my neighborhood of Bay Ridge, Brooklyn. Nothing ever […]

Bigfoot Running Challenge

The Bigfoot Running Challenge

In these trying times of social distancing and self-isolation, my wife and I are always trying to find fun things to do as a family with my son, to just get us out of the house and to get some exercise. Since nearly everything is closed, we mainly stick to walking through the park right […]
