DVD Review: American Sasquatch Hunters: Bigfoot In America

Good but familiar

This documentary, mostly shot at the East Coast Bigfoot Conference in 2011, is produced and directed by Jay Michael (Swamp Apes, Honey Island Swamp Monster,  Bigfoot FAQ) and features some familiar faces from the Bigfoot Community, such as Eric Altman, Steve Kulls, Billy Willard, Dave Dragosin, Stan Gordon, Rick Tullos, Tim Cassidy and Dr. Jeff Meldrum discussing their thoughts and theories on what Sasquatch is. The evidence is discussed (footprints, film, DNA, things of that nature), but also the Kill or No-Kill discussion is brought in, with Tullos being the sole proponent of the Pro-Kill argument. When the P/G Film is discussed, Jay uses a photo of Bob Gimlin I allowed him to use for the documentary. Some parts of this were shot in Mississippi with Jay Michael as the host. All in all, this one is good, but not great, mainly due to the familiarity of the subject to us. I wold have preferred more eyewitness accounts and maybe some recreations. There is an actor in a Sasquatch suit seen throughout the production which somewhat resembles the Andre the Giant Bionic Bigfoot suit which makes for an interesting representation of the look of the Sasquatch as well. I would give this documentary a 7 out of 10. It is enjoyable but familiar to we Sasquatch proponents, but I am sure the general public will enjoy it.

John Kirk on Ogopogo

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on August 28th, 2013
People tend to think that Ogopogo is and was a single creature. That is not the case. In the 1950s Don Nourse and others observed no less than five juveniles. Paul Demara’s 1991 footage shows between 5 and 7 of them despite what some skeptics think. So that being said, they obviously come in varying sizes during their development.

Case Solved: Bigfoot Captured on Video in Kentucky?

A Cryptomundian tips us off to the truth behind this video.
The Wildest Man Of All Mysterious Universe
Nick Redfern lends some historical perspective to the legend of "wild men" throughout Europe, who seemed to have been mythical creatures with more than a bit of reality mixed in. Likewise, Esoterx, with tongue firmly planted in cheek, explores the mythical origins of A Merovingian Monster and the Founding of France, a combination that included a cryptid aquatic creature putting the moves on the human queen who gave birth to the first Merovingian king. Esoterx concludes that, "starting a dynasty is hard work".

The next time you rage at an inconsiderate driver and call him a "Neanderthal", consider this--he may actually be one. Sort of. Recent research has confirmed that some of us aren't entirely human, or rather, we've got some Neanderthal genes within us. Further research has produced actual skeletal remains of an early human-Neanderthal hybrid from 40,000 years ago. Elsewhere, chemist Steven Benner explores our human origins even further back to the first stirrings of life on planet earth, and claims that 'We are all Martians': Chemist's otherworldly claim stirs debate by proposing that all life on earth started out from Mars, transferred here by meteor. His theory is surprisingly viable although certainly out of this world, but it begs the inevitable question, where did the life on Mars come from? On a related note, io9 ponders the question: Is the moon a planet? and then gives detailed technical reasons why the moon is refused membership in the snobby Planet Club.

Sasquatch Cited In Mine Hearings Prince George Citizen
The First Nations communities in Prince George brought up the subject of Sasquatch in recent environmental review hearings on the proposed construction of mines. The First Nation spokespeople have cited recent encounters with the creature and also historical context, saying that Sasquatch is part of their heritage and culture. Meanwhile, Florida residents are reporting sightings of a mysterious creature of a slightly smaller scale as Panther sightings reported throughout Florida, with over 700 reports filed in 2013 alone. The difference between these two stories? These panthers are not cryptids.

Rummaging through the archives, Cliff Barackman's found a ridiculously racist article from the quaint days of poodle skirts and hula-hoops. If there was a kernel of truth to this story, published after Jerry Crews's famous casting, it'd serve to enrich everything about the cultural phenomenon behind the North American wood ape. Among other Americana, Nick Redfern's been enjoying the dickens out of Stackpole Books's Monsters Of The USA series. If you haven't picked one up, Nick's reviews of Monsters of Massachusetts and Monsters of New York are compelling enough even if your state hasn't been covered yet.
