Kids Spot a "Goblin"

Shortly after the news report about the search for witnesses of gnomes back in the '70s comes this story, about a supposed sighting of a "goblin."

The Daily Mail reports:

"A group of Argentinian children have been left too terrified to play football after they believe they spotted a goblin in their pitch.
"Eerie footage filmed by one of the youngsters shows the group running happily around the pitch after the ball until the filmer suddenly spots what appears to be a mysterious figure at the side.
"The small, dark shape crawls slowly forwards, moving awkwardly, seemingly neither man nor beast.
"The child zooms in on the unusual being, which advances steadily, and cries out in alarm.
"Moments later the boy beings screaming at the top of his lungs and he and his pals run madly away from the creature in a desperate bid to escape.
"The alarming incident took place  in the city of Santiago del Estero in the northern Argentinian province of the same name.
"Local media also described the strange figure as a goblin and reported that the children's parents said that they were too frightened to return to their pitch to play football.
"One mother described it as a 'paranormal phenomenon.'
"Goblins are monstrous mythical creatures first mentioned in European folklore in the Middle Ages.
"They are usually described as small and grotesque, mischievous or evil, and greedy, especially for gold and jewelry. They often have magical abilities."

 As for what the kid filmed in the video, I can't say as it is too blurry to make out what it is. The one thing that stuck me, though, is it really does sound like genuine terror in is voice when he is screaming. Maybe they really did see a "goblin?"

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…
