Molester Blames Bigfoot

Posted by: Loren Coleman on March 26th, 2008

In one famous case, a man who said he was hunting Bigfoot killed a park ranger.

Night of the Demon Remembered

Posted by: Loren Coleman on March 25th, 2008

Nick Redfern alerts me to the fact a character actor of some note, Brian Wilde, 80, died on March 20, 2008. Like Nick, I recall Wilde for his role of Rand Hobart in the classic 1957 UK movie Night of the Demon (Curse of the Demon in the USA). For me, the film was a […]

Texas Trails: A Millionaire’s Quest

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on March 24th, 2008

First, there was the name. Tom Slick. It sounds daring and adventurous, like Clutch Cargo, Johnny Quest or Indiana Jones. That trio of heroes are each fictional but Tom Slick lived in the real world, even if he spent a lot of time and money looking for creatures that many people believed to be unreal. […]

Beyond Loch Ness And Beyond

Posted by: Loren Coleman on March 22nd, 2008

When Beyond Loch Ness was first broadcast on Sci Fi Channel on January 5, 2008, I didn’t get a chance to watch it. Tonight, from 7-9 PM Eastern, I viewed the film. It was my first chance to see this one. But then, I had to. After all, I am a cryptozoologist. The body count […]

Pinky Expedition: Monster Considerations

Posted by: Loren Coleman on March 22nd, 2008

A major conclusion from my “Pinky Expedition” is the same one that I have found over and over again. There are no simple answers to the mysteries of monsters in our midst. Looking at other “cryptids,” additionally, we have to consider the other pieces of the puzzle. The long-term sightings of strange creatures from the […]

10,000 BC and Terror Birds

Posted by: Loren Coleman on March 21st, 2008

If you haven’t seen 10,000 BC, I highly recommend you give it a second chance for your weekend viewing before it leaves the big screen. I find it discouraging that one of the major movie criticisms being heaped on 10,000 BC is that there was not enough blood and gore, that the slicing and dicing […]
