15th Annual Mothman Festival

Took a trip down to the 15th annual Mothman Festival in Pt. Pleasant, West Virginia today. It was the first time I've gotten to go to this event, and I had a blast.

The AIMS team from Mountain Monsters was there, but since the line for them literally went down the whole street, we didn't go see them. I did, however, get a photo when they went by at the beginning of the festival.

There were lots of vendors and speakers at the event, and I got to see plenty of people I'd met before at other events. I also met Colin Schneider, who runs the Paranormal101 blog (definitely check it out), Ken Gerhard, Robert Robinson, and Stan Gordon.

Of course, I got a picture by the Mothman statue…

And, had an encounter with the Men in Black! (Not the real ones, though!)

And in front of the "Mothman Diner" (Harris Steakhouse).

We also went on a tour of the TNT Area, and drove down the road where Roger and Linda Scarberry and Steve and Mary Mallette were chased by the Mothman 50 years ago…

There were plenty of speakers, but the only one I watched was Joedy Cook, who gave a cool presentation on Dogman sightings. I was planning on watching more speakers, but it was hot as heck in the old theater where they were, so I decided to walk around the town more. It was hot outside too, but felt better than in the theater!

The Ghostbusters were there…


And, on the way home, we happened to see this at a rest stop.

This was one of the coolest cryptid events I've been to. If you are interested in this kind of stuff, definitely try to go to it sometime!

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…
