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, […]

Bigfoot erotica Leslie Cockburn

Bigfoot Erotica is Now a Part of U.S. Politics

I have tried very hard to stay away from politics on this blog. But since the 2016 election, it has become increasingly more and more difficult to do so. And a Congressional race in Virginia just had to get bizarre enough to attract the attention of the paranormal and cryptozoology communities. In a completely bananas […]

Cryptozoological Erotica Is Actually a Thing

Just when you think the paranormal pop culture phenomenon has reached the limits of nonsensical absurdity, something else comes along to destroy that silly notion. I give to you the ridiculously disturbing monster porn: erotica novels written about and involving your favorite cryptids. I kid you not, this is a real thing. And it’s pretty […]

Psychic Sylvia Browne Dead, Fails to Predict Own Death

As I’m sure many of you have heard by now, self-proclaimed psychic Sylvia Browne has died at the age of 77. Now while we are very critical and harsh on psychics and other paranormal frauds here at The Occult Section, we are never happy to hear that someone has died. That being said, I think […]

Monsters of New York: Mysterious Creatures in the Empire State

Monsters of New York by Bruce G. Hallenbeck When people think of New York, many iconic images come to mind: the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, subways, Time Square, Broadway shows, crowds, and the general hustle and bustle of the business center of the world. But New York City is only a small part […]

Peter Byrne Still Has Hopes of Finding Bigfoot

I’ve always admired Peter Byrne and his swagger. One of the original Bigfoot hunters, Byrne hasn’t really been mentioned much in the news lately, and I haven’t really seen him on many of the TV shows. I guess he’s been busy actually searching for Sasquatch lately, instead of making the TV rounds. And I say, good for […]

Photo of the Week: Dante’s Inferno

We took a little hiatus last week from posting a Photo of the Week, as we were busy investigating, but we return this week with an object that we investigated that was believed to be haunted. A little over a year ago, we were contacted by a client in New Jersey who was experiencing some […]

Keep Out!

Keep Out! by Nick Redfern I think it’s pretty safe to say that most people are at least tangentially aware of Area 51, the top secret military base in the Nevada desert that supposedly is the testing ground for captured UFOs, as well as top secret military aircraft. Most people have also probably heard of […]

The Ghost Way

“The Ghost Way” by Lance Smith tells the story of the Ramanakajja family – father Jak, mother Eot and their four daughters – and how the family lived for a brief time on “The Ghost Way,” or land that is supposedly forever doomed to be roamed by demons. Set in Thailand, and written as a […]

Bad things are happening! It’s the dog’s fault – she’s possessed!

Oy. I’m not even sure where to begin with this one. A family acquires a dog. Some bad things happen to the family (bed bugs, a car accident, and their daughter gets in trouble at school, among other things) and so they quite naturally conclude that it’s all the dog’s fault because the dog is […]
