On the Trail Of... Champ - Trailer 2

Small Town Monsters has a new trailer up for their upcoming documentary On the Ttail Of... Champ, which takes a look at the lake monster said to live in Lake Champlain in New York and Vermont.

Below is some info about the doc and Small Town Monsters:

"For centuries, tales have been told of a massive, unknown, aquatic creature living in the waters of Lake Champlain. The 'beast' is said to be anywhere from ten to thirty feet long within an abnormally long neck, flippers and a dinosaur-like appearance. Sightings of the animal known as Champ reached their peak during the 1970s but history tells of a bizarre 'water horse' said to reside in the lake ling before the area become inhabited by settlers. Today, Champ is celebrated in local towns and villages along the lake and has even become a mascot for the local minor league baseball team.
"This June, Small Town Monsters (2016's Beast of Whitehall) and filmmaker Aleksandar Petakov will release On the Trail of… Champ; an examination of the legend and the ongoing search for the creature. On the Trail of… Champ is a six-to-eight episode mini-series filmed during the summer and early Fall of 2017. Petakov was on and around Lake Champlain for one of the largest, most well-funded searches for Champ in history and when the project is released on June 15th you'll get to experience this massive search for yourself. What they found might just change your mind about the existence of such a creature.
"'Champ' marks the beginning of the new, ongoing series from Small Town Monsters titled 'On the Trail of…' and will be followed up in 2019 with a massive search across the Eastern United States for the legendary being called Bigfoot. On the Trail of… Champ will premiere on DVD and the VIDI Space streaming platform on June 15th before heading to Amazon in July. VIDI Space (http://www.vidi.space) is a new online network founded by Nick Groff ('Paranormal Lockdown'/'Ghost Adventures'), Elizabeth Saint ('Ghosts of Shepardstown'), and Justin Narragon featuring paranormal and supernatural content. The mini-series will make it's debut under VIDI Space's new Cryptid.Space.
"Small Town Monsters made waves recently when they released Beast of Whitehall, a documentary which examined Whitehall, New York's Bigfoot history. That documentary went on to garner film festival awards and played on New York television during the summer of 2016. Since then, Beast of Whitehall has become one of the most-viewed documentaries on bizarre subjects on Amazon Prime. The production company plans to hold a public premiere of On the Trail of… Champ at the annual Minerva Monster Day festival in Minerva, OH. The Festival will also feature Portland, Maine native, Loren Coleman; curator of the world's only Cryptozoology Museum."

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…
