Profiling “The Bigfoot Book”

Posted by: Nick Redfern on July 29th, 2015

Bigfoot: it’s a controversy-filled word that is instantly recognizable to just about one and all. And, regardless of whether one is a true believer, an open-minded skeptic, a definitive non-believer, or a semi-interested observer of the controversy, pretty much everyone knows what the word implies and describes: a large, hair-covered, ape-style animal that is said to roam, and lurk within, the mysterious, forested wilds of the United States.

Bizarre Beasts at Creepy Castles

Posted by: Nick Redfern on July 28th, 2015

Any mention of supernatural phenomena, in connection with old British castles, is inevitably going to provoke imagery of ghosts, specters, and the dead returned (chain-rattling or not). This is hardly surprising, since Britain is seemingly filled with such stories and legends. Less well know, however, are the cases that link old castles not to human ghosts but to the ghosts of strange creatures. As in very strange creatures.

A Hairy Hand of the Horrific Kind

Posted by: Nick Redfern on July 28th, 2015

“According to local legends, this entity manifests itself as a pair of large, hairy disembodied hands. Sometimes, the Hands are described as having claws.”

Profiling the Gloucester Sea Serpent

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on July 27th, 2015

gloucester-sea-monster

Sightings of so-called Sea Serpents abound within the domain of monster-hunting. More often than not, they are encounters of a fleeting, one-time nature. But not always. One of the most enduring of all such leviathans of the deep is that which haunts the port of Gloucester, Massachusetts, and which is situated just north of the city of Boston.

bigfootbook1

…as well as well known things like “B for Bigfoot,” “Y for Yeti” etc, there are a lot of obscure Bigfoot-type creatures listed from Africa, South America, Europe, the Far East, and much more.

From Bigfoot To Willow Man

Posted by: Nick Redfern on July 24th, 2015

As anyone who has followed my writing will know, I have, over the years, collected a huge number of reports of Bigfoot-like creatures in the U.K. As well as cases involving out-of-place apes and monkeys, and downright anomalous primates of the hairy kind. Of course, to be on the receiving end of such reports in somewhere the size of the U.K. is way more controversial than collecting reports originating in the vast forests of the United States.

Megalania – A Monster Still Among Us?

Posted by: Nick Redfern on July 23rd, 2015

Megalania

Is it feasible that the subtropical rainforests of Australia are home to gigantic, marauding lizards of twenty to thirty feet in length? Could such Jurassic Park-like beasts really remain hidden, undetected, and free to rampage around in near-unstoppable fashion? Just maybe, the answer is “yes.”

Real-Life Creatures from the Black Lagoon?

Posted by: Nick Redfern on July 20th, 2015

Is it possible that Hollywood’s Creature from the Black Lagoon has a real-life counterpart? Or, maybe, not exactly a counterpart, but something that is broadly similar? Just possibly, yes – as amazing as it might sound.

Australia’s Unknown Ape-Men

Posted by: Nick Redfern on July 6th, 2015

There is no doubt that Australia’s most famous cryptid ape is the Yowie. It resembles Bigfoot in both size and appearance to an incredibly close degree. It stands around seven to ten feet tall and is covered in a thick coat of hair. Far less famous, though no less fascinating than the Yowie, is Australia’s Wakki, also known as the Njmbin, the Junjudee, the Waladherahra, as well as by many other names, depending on the relevant Aborigine tribe that tells of its existence.

Dog With A Human Face

Posted by: Nick Redfern on July 5th, 2015

If, like me, you’re a fan of the writings of Linda Godfrey – and particularly her werewolf-themed book, The Michigan Dogman – then what I’m about to share with you now is likely to be of deep interest. It’s an old newspaper story – dating back more than a century – that is eerily reminiscent of some of Linda’s findings. And, it demonstrates that when we dig into the past, we can sometimes find fascinating tales that have a direct bearing on the present.

Wild Things of World War Two

Posted by: Nick Redfern on July 4th, 2015

The Second World War brought forth death on a massive scale, planet-wide carnage, and the atomic bomb. It also brought forth a number of reports of savage man-beasts.

Monster Trek: The Obsessive Search for Bigfoot

Posted by: Nick Redfern on June 29th, 2015

Bigfoot sightings have been reported in every state except Hawaii. Interest in this creature, which many believe to be as mythical as a leprechaun, is as strong today as ever, with the wildly popular show Finding Bigfoot persisting on the Animal Planet network and references to bigfoot appearing throughout popular culture. What is it about bigfoot that causes some people to devote a chunk of their lives to finding one?

Anomalous Apes of the Cinema

Posted by: Nick Redfern on June 10th, 2015

“There’s no doubt, whatsoever, that the ultimate giant ape of the fictional variety is King Kong, whose escapades were famously portrayed in the acclaimed, almost legendary, 1933 movie of the same name.”

The Beast of Bladenboro

Posted by: Nick Redfern on June 10th, 2015

“Although many eye-witnesses described the animal as looking like a black leopard, there were some who said it was more akin to a sleek-looking bear. Adding to the confusion, the tracks of the creature were said to be dog-like, rather than feline in appearance.”
