Beast of Whitehall News

There's now only one month until Beast of Whitehall is released. The film is the second in the Small Town Monsters series (the first was Minerva Monster.) Beast of Whitehall focuses on the Bigfoot sightings around Whitehall, New York. It is an excellent documentary (I got to watch it two months early and review it here.)

Seth Breedlove posted some more news about the film on Cryptomundo today:

"August, 1976: Three teens driving on an isolated stretch of road somewhere in the Adirondacks of Upstate New York have a brush with a bizarre creature. Standing over 7 feet tall and covered in hair, they referred to it as a 'beast.' Hours later, Abair Road was crawling with local and state police. Many of them recounted seeing the creature, as well.
"Beast of Whitehall is part of a series of films called 'Small Town Monsters' that focus on creatures unknown to science that become part of the lore and legend of rural communities. Beast of Whitehall has already screened at film festivals across the country.
"The film is available for pre-order at the Small Town Monsters store at a special price during the month of March." 

You can find the link to pre-order the film on the Cryptomundo post.

Seth continues about the official premiere of the film:

"On April 2nd, the film will have its official premier at the Whitehall Athletic Club in Whitehall, NY and is a free event put on by the Small Town Monsters production company in association with the Whitehall Arts and Recreation Committee. Food and drink will be available. The event kicks off at 3:00 with a speaking presentation put on by Paul Bartholomew. At 4:00 the premier showing of Beast of Whitehall will begin, and it will be followed at 5:00 by a second showing. At 6:00, Seth Breedlove (film director), Brandon Dalo (producer/composer) and members of the film cast will field questions from the audience. There will also be vendors present including Maz Adams who did illustrations featured in the film."

If you live near Whitehall, New York, or can get to the area on April 2nd, I highly recommend that you check out the premiere of Beast of Whitehall. It is not your typical Bigfoot documentary, and that is definitely not a bad thing. It's pretty much what happened told to you straight from the people who lived it. There's no dramatization of anything, and that actually makes it better than other documentaries on cryptid creatures.

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…
