Monsters and Mysteries in America: Chupacabra, Zombie Soldiers, Lake Worth Monster

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on December 13th, 2013

Season 2 of Monsters and Mysteries in America premieres Sunday night, December 15 at 10/9 PM Central on Destination America.


Myself and Lyle Blackburn were both filmed for the Lake Worth Monster segment of this episode. The Lake Worth Monster is near and dear to me, as it was what started my interest in Cryptozoology.


Nice to see Cryptomundo get a plug! 😉

Texas is a hotbed of monster activity. The Lake Worth community is being terrorized by a hybrid man-goat; in Cuero Phylis Canion has proof of a Chupacabra; and in Brownsville a young couple is attacked by an aggressive Zombie soldier.

Here are some screenshots from the episode:



Looks like they really played up the original descriptions of the creature as a goat-man…

    Has anybody here ever considered the possibility that it’s time to either lay off of the stories about zombies, werewolves, goat men, moth men and owl men or to quit asking yourselves why the overwhelming majority of serious scientists don’t take crypto-zoology or crypto-zoologists very seriously?

    The problem with all of these shows…is that they are “reality” shows and they are for entertainment only. The level of real investigation in the interest of proving anything is about 2 out of 10.

    Destination America, while entertaining, is so sensationalistic and over the top that it is the equivalent of telling stories around a campfire. Nothing more.

    The only show I have any hope for is the Haunted Highway on the sci-fi channel. They don’t have large television crews (at least they say they don’t :)), it’s just four people (don’t even get me started on Jael or this post is gonna get a whole lot longer), and Jack at least tries to be skeptical. However, having said that, it’s still a “reality show” set up for ratings.

    If nothing exciting happens (which is probably true most of the time in real investigations–not because there’s no real phenomenon, but because that’s the way it goes), people don’t become steady viewers. That’s the game. If you’re hunting monsters there had, at the least, better be some creepy sounds, unexplained crunching in the woods or it’s the death knell.

    The real problem is that we as cryptos, are eager to see shows on our favorite cryptids and then get all ticked off when the show is all but a mockery of our endeavors. We as cryptos and cryptomundians are not the demographic that Animal Planet and Discovery, National Geographic, Sci-Fi or the History Channel are shooting after.
