Cryptids of the Week: 11/9-11/15, 2014

I've decided to start doing a "Cryptids of the Week" thing on this blog. I was going to last week but didn't put it on here yet, so here are the two "Cryptids of the Week" from last week. Keep in mind that I just picked two random cryptids.

Beast of Bray Road

The Beast of Bray Road is a so called "werewolf" spotted near Elkhorn, Wisconsin. The Beast was first seen in the year 1936, but sightings really took of in the late '80s and continued into the '90s. At the time of the rash of sightings, local newspaper reported Linda S. Godfrey decided to investigate the sightings. She eventually came to believe that the witnesses actually saw something that looked like a werewolf. She went on to write a book about the creature called The Beast of Bray Road: Tailing Wisconsin's Werewolf, which came out in 2003. SHe has since written many more books on werewolves and other cryptid creatures.

Bigfoot

Most people know what a Bigfoot is, even if they don't believe they exist. The most famous encounter with a Bigfoot occurred in 1967, when Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin ran into "Patty" at Bluff Creek, California. Patterson filmed the creature and it is the best evidence for bigfoot's existence, even today. It has never been proven to be a hoax, even if skeptics tell you it has been. Now there are many people committed to the search for Bigfoot. The largest and oldest investigation group is the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization, or BFRO.

I already have cryptids for this week, but I'll put a poll up if anyone wanted to vote/pick the ones for next week. if you don't, I'll do it myself.

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…
