Linda S. Godfrey, the author of werewolf books The Beast of Bray Road: Tailing Wisconsin’s Werewolf and Hunting the American Werewolf throws us a bone in her third book in the series, The Michigan Dogman: Werewolves and Other Canines Across the USA. And what a juicy bone it is! This latest offering is based on hundreds of eyewitness accounts — some funny and some scary — and the stories are told in such a compelling way disbelief should be suspended in even the most hardened skeptics.

Beginning at Route 23, close to Newfoundland, and running ten miles to its northern terminus in the Upper Greenwood Lake area; Clinton Road might seem like an otherwise plain stretch of asphalt cutting through West Milford, New Jersey in Passaic County. However, for paranormal enthusiasts, it is one of the most notorious roads in America; well known as a hotbed of paranormal activity, unusual gatherings and unexplained phenomena.

Whether or not you actually believe in the existence of cryptids, there may come a time when you encounter something truly unexplainable. Perhaps a momentary glimpse of something moving quickly through the shadows or the crackling of breaking branches in the brush, but, never-the-less, enough to stop you mid-step and raise the hairs on the back of your neck. More than likely, the first thing which comes to mind is “What the hell was that!?” Such is the case with a man named John from Luttrell, Tennessee, who inadvertently captured something unexplainable while taking photographs off his back porch and asked our community for help identifying it…

The Mande Barung is a lesser known relative of the Yeti and Bigfoot living in the remote Garo Hills of Northeast India and Bangladesh.  Translated directly as ‘forest man’, the Mande Barung are creatures very similar in description to other ape-type hominids around the world – large in stature, completely covered with hair and standing around 10 feet tall with an estimated weight of 600lbs. Until recently, hard evidence of Bigfoot-type cryptids in India has been almost non-existent except for tribal folklore.

Just the sound of the words ‘supermax prison’ raises the hairs on the back of most people’s neck. We’ve all heard of the facilities designed to house the worst of the worst amongst our society. The places where inmates are kept locked inside a one person cell for twenty-three hours per day. Inmates held in these literal “hell on Earth” facilities range from serial rapists to mass murderers, and include terrorists with everything in between. Many people think the savagry of the crimes are reason enough to keep them locked away, and perhaps it is. However, could there be other unknown reasons for the brutality dished out at some of these prisons? The poor living conditions, the starvation, the torture…?  Could some of these supermax prisons be the home to captured vampires or werewolves?

Many years before the movie was made, author John Keel wrote “The Mothman Prophecies” book, covering the same people and events. Yes, the movie was based on that book but while Hollywood often goes to great lengths to dramatize actual events this time they were spot on. John Keel’s experience with the Mothman is truly a frightening one, as he himself almost became a casualty of the Silver Bridge disaster in Point Pleasant, West Virginia that fateful December evening in 1967. It was the warning of the Mothman that seemingly spared his life.

The farmlands of southern Wisconsin may seem like an ideal place to live and raise a family with rolling hills and woody outcrops surrounding dairy farms and small towns. However, there’s a dark legend looming over the town of Elkhorn, Wisconsin and its neighboring townships. A creature rumored to be half man and half wolf (a werewolf) has been roaming the countryside for several decades. It’s known as the Beast of Bray Road, Bray Road Beast for short, and has become one of the most popular urban legends of our time. But is it really just an urban legend? This is an individual account of one eyewitness who claims to have seen the elusive creature not once, not twice, but five times since 2002.

Dear Sarah,
Do you remember when we were in high school, I used to sneak out late and go to those killer parties in the Bottoms? I know, I shouldn’t have been there but I couldn’t help it. What’s the point of being young and full of life if you can’t enjoy it, right?  I mean, what could happen anyways?  I can smell evil a mile off and easily rip a grown man’s arm out of it’s socket if I get angry enough.

The mountainous wilderness of “By-God” West Virginia has long been rumored to be the home of werewolves. Native American tribes that lived along the Appalachian Mountain trails centuries ago told stories of beasts of great size, with snarling jaws and razor sharp claws, which would rip apart anyone foolhardy enough to get too close. However, the origin of these creatures is shrouded in a fog of mystery. In the wilderness area of Raleigh County, there are rumors that such a beast is still lurking behind the trees in this modern era. For the last several years, the mutilated carcasses of bears have been found all over the mountainous terrain by hunters and campers. These discoveries beg the question: What sort of a creature possesses the lethality as to rip apart a bear? One man believes he has the answer based on what appears to be a picture of a werewolf he captured.

Thinking about grabbing a night vision camcorder and spending the night in a haunted house for a chance to catch a glimpse of some ghosts? Well, you might want to rethink that and perhaps go bowling instead. Like a scene right out of the John Cusack film 1408, on November 7, 2014, paranormal investigator Robert Laursen inexplicably stabbed himself while investigating the site of the Villisca ax murders with a team of other investigators.  Laursen incurred wounds to his chest which were so severe he was airlifted to a hospital for immediate treatment.
