Minerva Monster makes the News Again

The Minerva Monster movie made by Small Town Monsters is going to premiere at the Ohio Bigfoot Conference on May 16th. I've posted about it a few times before, and it has made its way into several news articles. Seth Breedlove originally came up with the idea to write a series of books on Small Town Monsters, but after being rejected by multiple publishers teamed up with filmmakers, and they are now working on the Small Town Monsters documentaries, the first of which is Minerva Monster. According to the article, Breedlove is already planning a second documentary about another Ohio Monster.

For those who don't know, the "Minerva Monster" was a Bigfoot that was seen near Minerva, Ohio, in 1978. The first sightings occurred when Evelyn Cayton and family saw a hairy, man-like figure outside of their house in late August. On the 20th, the Bigfoot came up to the house and looked in the window. The Cayton's had guns but weren't really afraid; Evelyn felt that it wanted to be friends. You can see more on the history of the Minerva Monster on Bigfoot Encounters, or in Mysterious America or Legend of the Grassman.  I also discuss the sightings in my book Cryptid U.S., which is currently in the publishing process. I hope to have it out sometime this spring.

You can see the news article on the documentary here.

You can watch the trailer for the documentary below.

The Burrunjor - A Present-Day Australian Dinosaur?

Australia is said to be home to a variety of cryptid creatures, from the aquatic Bunyip, the man-like Yowies and Wakkis, and the thylacine. There is another, however, that could be considered stranger than all the others. Why? Because its said to be something that should have gone extinct 65 million years ago!

The creature in question is called the Burrunjor, and is said to be a surviving dinosaur. Now, before you think that there is no possible way the Burrunjor could be real, remember that there are sightings and stories of other dinosaur-like creatures from around the world - for example, the mokele-mbembe, kongamato, and others in Africa, "Mounatin Boomers" in the U.S., the Partridge Creek Monster, and more.

Over the years there have been many sightings and stories of the Burrunjor in Australia, including this one from Rex and Heather Gilroy from the 1970s:

"In 1978, a Northern Territory bushman and explorer, Bryan Clark, related a story of his own that had taken pl…

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…

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.
