Book Review: Women in Black by Nick Redfern

Published in paperback on July 1st was a book that is one of my favorites I've read in awhile. Why? Because:

 1.) It's a great book overall, and
2.) It's subject is something there's never been a whole book written about before.

Of course, the book I'm talking about is Nick Redfern's Women in Black: The Creepy Companions of the Mysterious M.I.B. It was published by Lisa Hagan Books, who also published his Men in Black book from last year. I, for one, enjoyed this book quite a bit more than the other one. (Although that's mostly because there was more of Redfern's writing in this book.)

It's not surprising if you are someone who researches UFOs, the paranormal, etc. and you haven't heard of the Women in Black (or WIB.) I hadn't until last year when I saw that this book was being written. But, as soon as you start reading Redfern's newest book, you'll quickly find out that the WIB are seen just as much as the MIB, and are just as mysterious and creepy.

Redfern relates stories of mysterious Women in Black that range from the 19th Century to the present day. Some are directly UFO related, while others aren't, but still have paranormal overtones to them. Some that stuck out to me where those regarding Truman Bethurum and his mysterious "Aura Rhanes," mysterious, black-cloaked hags along old roads in Wales, and a WIB that was interested in Whitley Streiber's book Communion. Of course, those are only a few of many written about in Women in Black.

If you are someone interested in UFOs, MIB, the paranormal, or anything that would be labeled "strange," I definitely recommend this book to you. You won't be disappointed. But you might be creeped out a bit!

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…
