Finding Bigfoot Series Finale

Is ‘Finding Bigfoot’ Returning to Television?

Finding Bigfoot has always been a guilty pleasure of mine. I always loved hearing first-hand accounts, and seeing recreations. I also enjoyed the team going out to sort of debunk the account – try to gauge height of the alleged creature, where it may have gone, or what else it could have been.

James Appleton 46 Of 46 Podcast

Paranormal Podcasts: The 46 of 46 Podcast

The 46 of 46 Podcast Back in 2016, I did a short (very short) series of reviews on paranormal podcasts. I was new to the podcasting world, and my wide-eyed optimism got the best of me. I was going to check out tons of paranormal podcasts, as there were – and still are – so, […]

Finding Jay: Lost and Found

Finding Jay: Lost and Found – Review

Finding Jay: Lost and Found Directed by Jay Bachochin Back in March, as the reality of the COVID-19 lockdowns began to really hit home for me, I started really yearning for the outdoors again.

So this next selection of […]

The Mothman Legacy by Small Town Monsterss

The Mothman Legacy – Review

The Mothman Legacy Directed by Seth Breedlove | Small Town Monsters One of the qualities that I really dig about the Small Town Monsters crew and their documentaries (and honestly, there’s a lot to dig) is that they’re not afraid to do things differently. As a compliment, that may sound a bit cliché, and perhaps […]

Bigfoot Hunting in the Adirondacks, Part 3

“No way.” Josh to me, and me to Josh My buddy Josh and I had been eagerly awaiting to go on our next camping trip. Our last trip, to John Pond, was in very early February (in which I lost my wedding ring, and then returned with my wife a few days later to find […]

Coney Island monster batman

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 […]

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, […]
