Small Town Monsters 2018 Kickstarter



From a press release on Dread Central:

"In 2018 three legendary monsters get the documentary treatment when award-winning production company, Small Town Monsters, unleashes The Flatwoods Monster, The Bray Road Beast, and On the Trail of… Champ. Turning to Cryptid enthusiasts and lovers of the strange and spooky alike, the studio has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund production of the three projects which will be released beginning with 'Flatwoods Monster' in April, 'Champ' in June, and 'Bray Road Beast' next Fall. Small Town Monsters has successfully funded all their films through Kickstarter, with last years' 'The Mothman of Point Pleasant' breaking records when it secured its initial funding goal in under two hours.
"The Flatwoods Monster is a short-form documentary which takes a look at a bizarre encounter between residents of the town of Flatwoods, West Virginia and a mechanical, fire-breathing 'thing' on a wooded hill in September of 1952. Years alter, the saga is considered one of the most important UFO events in history. The sighting was eventually investigated, and subsequently covered up, by the United States Air Force. Viewers will learn about a true event, which has since been relegated to the pages of myth.
"'Flatwoods' director, Seth Breedlove says about the film, 'It's a retro-styled throwback to the classic monster movies we all grew up loving… only the monster in this story isn't simply a fictional character!'
"Meanwhile, On the Trail of… Champ, shot last summer in Vermont on Lake Champlain, takes you deeper into the lore of lake monsters than you've ever gone. Join investigators, Scott Mardis, Katy Elizabeth and William Dranginis as they dive into the murky waters of one of the largest freshwater lakes in the United States, in search of an undiscovered species considered impossible by science. Filmmaker, Aleksandar Petakov was present for the largest, single quest to search for evidence of the creature in history and what they discovered might just change your mind about real monsters...
"Finally, the fabled beast who lives on Bray Road near Elkhorn, Wisconsin is at the center of The Bray Road Beast, which promises to take viewers on a wild ride down one of the scariest stretches of blacktop in middle America. 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 became the focus of numerous television shows and fictional films.
"The Kickstarter campaign is now live at… Flatwoods Monster, Bray Road Beast & Champ Documentaries  and rewards for backers include everything from posters to DVD copies of the film, to executive and associate producer credits. The campaign also has an exclusive Bray Road Beasts statue by renowned sculptor Jean St Jean of CreatuReplica.

I got this up a little later than usual, but there are still 16 days to support the Kickstarter for this year's films!

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…

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…

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.
