Joedy Cook's "Mothman Casebook" Reviewed!

Joedy Cook, cryptid researcher from Cincinnati, Ohio, has a new book out called Mothman Casebook. I got the book recently and this is my review.

I enjoyed this book quite a lot, not just because I know the guy who wrote it, but because its a great book. Most of the book is sightings of Mothman or Mothman-like creatures in various states, including Ohio, West Virginia, Texan, Washington, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Florida, California, Wisconsin, New York, New Jersey, Alabama, and more.

All in all, I'd give this book 5/5 stars!

A WEIRD MOTHMAN OCCURRENCE

At the end of August, we went to the Mothman Museum in Point Pleasant, West Virginia. I remember saying how odd I thought it was that there are relatively few Mothman books out there compared to other well known cryptids, like Bigfoot. Just the next day I found this book. I thought it was a big strange… maybe Mothman had something to do with it!

Description from the back cover of Mothman Casebook:


"On a chilly November night in 1966, two young couples drove into the TNT Area north of Point Pleasant, West Virginia, when they realized they were not alone. What they saw that night has turned into one of the great mysteries of all time; hence the Mothman Legacy began. It has grown into a phenomenon known all around the world by millions of curious people asking question: What really happened? What did these people see? Has it been seen since? It still sparks the world's curiosity - the mystery behind Point Pleasant West Virginia's MOTHMAN."

Mountain Monsters - Coming Back in 2018?

Destination America's Mountain Monsters was a huge hit when it premiered in 2013. It's had five seasons through last year.

Season 3 started a "Bigfoot Edition" and season 4 introduced a "rogue team." Last season focused entirely on this "rogue team" and ended with really no conclusion.

Over the past 2 Saturdays, some old season 2 episodes of Mountain Monsters have been playing in the evenings. Could this be a sign that the show might be back for another season this year, or does it have no meaning at all?

If the show does come back, where can they go? Last season made absolutely no sense at all and the whole thing was pretty stupid. If it does come back, I think they should go back to just monster hunting like they did in the first two seasons. Once they went to just "Bigfoot Edition" things went downhill quick.

Some Thoughts on Alaska Monsters: Bigfoot Edition

So far, two episodes of Alaska Monsters: Bigfoot Edition have aired. Here are some of my thoughts on the show.

First off, let's start with the team, the Midnight Sons. There are a few new members on the team this season. The old leader, Little Bear, is gone, and now Crusty (the guy with the bear claw in his beard) is leader of the team. Other members are: Dudley (new guy), the team "forensic expert," Todd, the "trap engineer," Bulldog (new guy), the "survival expert," Rhett, the "greenhorn" (rookie), and of course Face, the "veteran tracker."

Compared to the AIMS Team of Mountain Monsters, Crusty is Trapper, Todd is Willy, Rhett is Buck, Bulldog would probably be Huckleberry, Dudley would probably be Jeff, and Face would be Wild Bill.

I haven't seen the first episode, "Bigfoot of the Arctic Circle: Siberian Giant," but I did watch episode two, "Bigfoot of Denali: Wind Walker" last Saturday. I actually though…

Review - Invasion on Chestnut Ridge

Small Town Monsters' 5th film, Invasion on Chestnut Ridge, comes out soon. STM director Seth Breedlove let me check out an advance copy of the film to put up a review on here. Though I've been quite busy for about the last month and a half, I finally got a chance to check out the film, and these are my thoughts on it.

Invasion is about the strange happenings along the Chestnut Ridge in Pennsylvania. Local residents who have had strange encounters are interviewed, as well as researchers Stan Gordon and Eric Altman.  Along the ridge, witnesses have reported ghost lights, UFOs, Bigfoot, werewolves, thunderbirds, and many, many other odd things.

Many well known sightings happened in the early 1970s, when reports of UFOs and Bigfoot were very frequent. The strangest thing of all this was that sometimes the two would be seen at the same time, or shortly after on another. Some witnesses even saw a white colored Bigfoot that was holding a ball of light.

On another occasion, two Bigfo…
