STM 'Bray Road Beast' Article



Hngnews.com has a new article up on Small Town Monsters' upcoming documentary The Bray Road Beast:


"Centuries of lore relating to the existence of real-life werewolves around the world will get the documentary treatment this Fall when The Bray Road Beast lands on streaming platforms and DVD courtesy of award-winning production company, Small Town Monsters. The fabled beast who lives on Bray Road near Elkhonr, Wisconsin is at the center of the new film which promises to take viewers on a wild ride down one of the scariest stretches of blacktop in middle America. Today, the film's official one-sheet has been released ahead of a Kickstarter campaign (launching January 25th) to fund the production of the film. The Bray Road Beast is a terrifying, werewolf-like creature that has stalked the midwest for the better part of a century. Rising to prominence in the 1990's thanks to a best-selling, non-fiction book by author, Linda Godfrey, the beast went on to become the focus of numerous television shows and fictional films.
"During the 90's, tales began to circulate of a hair-covered, half-man/half-dog animal that multiple people encountered while driving along rural, Bray Road just outside of Elkhorn. It was soon discovered that the creature had been seen around the area since as far back as the 1950s. Some of these sightings took on a particularly bizarre, supernatural element while others seemed to simply be of an abnormally large wolf; possibly a coyote/wolf hybrid. As the legend began to spread, so did the beasts popularity. While the sightings peaked during the 90s, weary travelers still claim to have brushes with the monster to this day.
"However, the Bray Road Beast has never been featured in a full-length documentary… until now. Along with multiple witnesses of the beast, he film will also feature author, Linda Godfrey, in addition to locals who have their own thoughts and theories on the existence of such a being. Filming begins this April around Wisconsin.
"There werewolf will be brought to life throughout the film via practical FX (with a costume designed by Collier Wilmes) and by stop-motion artists, Santino Vitale, along with the work of illustrators Matt Harris and Brandon Scalf. Author and musician, Lyle Blackburn will narrate the film which is being directed, written and produced by Seth Breedlove."


The Kickstarter campaign for The Bray Road Beast, On the Trail of Champ, and The Flatwoods Monster films starts January 25. Watch for updates on STM's Facebook page.

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…

The Burrunjor - A Present-Day Australian Dinosaur?

Australia is said to be home to a variety of cryptid creatures, from the aquatic Bunyip, the man-like Yowies and Wakkis, and the thylacine. There is another, however, that could be considered stranger than all the others. Why? Because its said to be something that should have gone extinct 65 million years ago!

The creature in question is called the Burrunjor, and is said to be a surviving dinosaur. Now, before you think that there is no possible way the Burrunjor could be real, remember that there are sightings and stories of other dinosaur-like creatures from around the world - for example, the mokele-mbembe, kongamato, and others in Africa, "Mounatin Boomers" in the U.S., the Partridge Creek Monster, and more.

Over the years there have been many sightings and stories of the Burrunjor in Australia, including this one from Rex and Heather Gilroy from the 1970s:

"In 1978, a Northern Territory bushman and explorer, Bryan Clark, related a story of his own that had taken pl…
