The Ghost of South Brooklyn

The Ghost of South Brooklyn

For the past two weeks, my “Throwback Thursdays” of the paranormal have focused on bizarre creatures – the Wildman of Rockaway Beach, and the Coney Island Monster. But this week, I’ll be focusing on a ghost that haunted the intersection of two streets in South Brooklyn, New York, back in 1890. Now before I proceed, […]

The Coney Island Monster

Coney Island has always been a special place for me. As a kid, my parents would bring me to the boardwalk to visit the New York Aquarium and grab some hot dogs and french fries at Nathan’s Famous, the iconic hot dog stand. As I got older, I’d take trips on Sundays with my father […]

Wildman of Rockaway Beach

The Wildman of Rockaway Beach

Anyone with an interest in Bigfoot is aware that New York has its fair share of Bigfoot sightings. Sure, when most people think of New York, they are mainly thinking of New York City – skyscrapers, the Statue of Liberty, subways, Time Square, and millions of people. It’s the city that never sleeps. But most […]

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, […]

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 […]

The Hat Man: Documented Cases of Pure Evil – Review

The Hat Man: Documented Cases of Pure Evil Directed by Kyle J. Macias Over the past few years, my son and I have forged a little tradition – Friday and Saturday nights are now, invariably, paranormal movie nights. We usually stick to found footage horror movies – we don’t care if they are good or […]

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 […]

Ghost Hunting in the Adirondacks

“His thought turned to the Ring, but there was no comfort there, only dread and danger.” – Me, thinking about breaking some bad news to my wife (from J.R.R. Tolkien, of course) I have been a camper for as long as I can remember. I think the earliest photos of my parents taking me camping […]

Beware of the Black-Eyed Kids

It’s late at night, you’re watching a movie, and someone knocks at your door. What in the world? It’s almost midnight! You drag yourself out of your comfy couch to meet two little kids at your front door. “We are lost,” One of the kids say. “Can we come in to use your phone?” Of […]

The Creepy Legend Behind La Llorona

A movie theater gave its young audience the fright of their lives after viewing The Curse of La Llorona by accident. The Guzzo Marché Central theater in Montréal showed young moviegoers The Curse of La Llorona instead of the highly anticipated Detective Pikachu. Before the movie started, parents and kids were exposed to the Joker […]
