Book Review: Paranormal Montana



Earlier this week, I got Greg Strandberg's new book Paranormal Montana: The Odd, Strange, and Unexplainable Things That Happen Under the Big Sky. The book covers all things with the label "unknown" that are spotted in the Treasure State, including UFOs, cattle mutilations, Bigfoot, the Flathead Lake Monster, ghosts and haunted places, Indian legends about giants, giant beavers, and much more.

Anyone who checks this blog regularly will probably have seen that I got the book Monday, and am now finished with it. Yes, it's not that long of a book and it is a quick read. But a good one nonetheless.

Strandberg splits the book into sections, each on a different topic. The sections in the book are:


  1. UFOs in Montana
  2. Cattle Mutilations
  3. Montana Bigfoot Sightings
  4. The Flathead Lake Monster
  5. Indian Legends
  6. Other Phenomena

Strandberg discusses sightings of all these odd things dating from hundreds of years ago and up to 2016. Each chapter is pretty short, but there's a lot of them, each discussing something different. 

There's the occasional spelling or grammar error in the book, but overall I enjoyed it. I definitely recommend Paranormal Montana to anyone interested in any sort of strange phenomenon. More than likely you'll find something about it in this book.

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…
