Profiling The British Bigfoot

Posted by: Nick Redfern on December 3rd, 2014

“My main reason for thinking there is something in the UK is the sheer number of sightings. People have been reporting hairy, upright figures since around the 1870s. One misconception is that the UK doesn’t have sightings – but there are many.”

Huge Prehistoric-Like Bird Observed

Posted by: Nick Redfern on November 5th, 2014

There has been a long history of giant bird sightings in Pennsylvania. The term “Thunderbird” has been used to describe these generally very large, normally black or dark brown birds with massive wingspans. Not all of the descriptions of these flying cryptids however are the same. Some witnesses I have Interviewed in past years have stated that what they saw looked more like a giant bat.

Others reluctantly told me what they observed looked more prehistoric and similar to a pterodactyl or teratorn. More than one person told me that the huge flying creature they saw could only be described as a dragon. And yes, some who have witnessed these creatures have hesitantly used the term gargoyle.

Werewolves: Not Transformed People

Posted by: Nick Redfern on October 25th, 2014

“When people learn that I do think there is a real werewolf phenomenon, many of them assume I mean werewolves of the folkloric and Hollywood variety. That’s to say, people who shape-shift into wolves, or into bipedal wolf-like creatures that are half-wolf and half-human. I should stress I believe no such thing – at all.”

“Pilots on a holiday jet were left stunned when a ‘flying man’ whizzed past their aircraft at 3,500 feet. The mystery man flew within 100 meters of the plane and left the pilots baffled as to how he was moving through the air, as neither could see a canopy suspending him.”

The Abominable Snowman – Reviewed

Posted by: Nick Redfern on October 23rd, 2014

“From the mid 1950s to the early 1970s, the U.K.’s Hammer Film Productions ruled the roost in the field of cinematic horror. Hammer’s movies were in sharp contrast to the black and white monster productions of the 1930s and 1940s, which starred the likes of Boris Karloff, Bela Lugosi, and Lon Cheney, Jr.”
