10 Werewolf Movies Done Right (Part 1)

These are some of the best representations of werewolves in films; my favorite effects, as opposed to our last post in which we went over some the really awful werewolf movies out there.  1.  Silver Bullet (1985) Gary Busey, werewolves, gore; I’ll tell you honestly, it wasn’t really the werewolf in the movie, that made…

10 of the Cheesiest Werewolves Ever

Here are some of the floppiest film werewolves of all time, woot. 1.  Werewolf (1996) This whole movie, was so effing ridiculous, it actually made it into an episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000. The best ever. 2. Werewolf: The Devil’s Hound (2007) I saw this, and all I could think of was… “Memories, all…

10 Disturbing Parallels Between the Kardashians and Werewolves

 1.  Solitary, Volatile Creatures Most of the time, Kardashians, much like werewolves, prefer not to be disturbed by outside influences, or external forces. 2.   Extremely Painful Transformations Both werewolves and Kardashians must endure agonizing pain before each transformation; as shown above, Kardashians, much like werewolves, have an amazingly high tolerance for pain. 3.  Female…

8 Reasons Why Forrest Gump Was Really a Werewolf Movie

1.  He Was Bitten When He Was a Kid Forrest Gump’s body started changing after he was bitten, and it was probably by one of those degenerate kids he went to school with, since he seemed to be able to run a lot better after he started school. 2. He’s Weatherproof He demonstrates imperviousness to…

I only read it for the articles.

Robert Frost wrote that the woods are lovely dark and deep but he forgot to add scary as hell. This report comes from PLAYBOY. It DOESN’T have pictures, though. Not THOSE kind of pictures, lest any of my faithful readers accuse me of lechery. I read it and suggest it here purely on scientific grounds,…

Double Dogmen

A video from Michigan and a photograph from Texas of what are allegedly Dogmen surfaced in the last 30 days. The werewolf of folklore was a literal wolf, a man transformed into a four-legged fiend, larger and more ferocious than your average wolf, maybe, but still recognizable as such. The “man-beast” version of the werewolf…

The Big Black Beast of Britain

Phantom animal seen near St Austell, local councillor warns. What is it? Other than big, black, and beastly, that is. A black panther, one of the celebrated ABCs (alien big cats) known to prowl the English countryside? Is it a wolf or werewolf, one of Britain’s infamous “Black Dogs” or Hellhounds? Is it some pervert…

That Dog Deserves a Treat!

A Boone man says he was enjoying time in the North Carolina mountains when he saw a Sasquatch and his little dog chased the beast away. His name is Zippy, and he ain’t scared of no Sasquatch. This is even more impressive when one realizes that Zippy is a dog. Not some big, churlish brute,…

Getting’ busy with Bigfoot

BELFAIR, Washington — Nancy Hoggert told BigFoot Tracker that she and the infamous bigfoot have been in a sexual relationship since 2008… Y’all, I can’t even. Sometimes there just isn’t any need for color commentary. It’d be kinda like that guy who made a parody video of the song “Friday” by that Rebecca Black girl….

The Man-Wolf of Kentucky

Information has been received here that the people in the country around Buena Vista, a village in Garrard County, are much excited over the reports that a wild man has high haunts in the Kentucky River hills near that place.

Where Monsters Dwell

Tales of Bigfoot sightings are reported globally but the Alaskan version is the most extreme, standing over 14 feet. Is this massive, aggressive creature targeting people in the Alaska Triangle?  It’s easy enough to scoff at the primitive fears of our ancestors—safe and secure in our modern world, where electric lights keep the darkness at…

The Granny Ripper

Tamara Samsonova, a 67-year-old pensioner and a former hotel worker, was arrested for allegedly executing the so-called “Granny Ripper” murders. Who says little old ladies are harmless? This one in particular, 79-year-old Tamara Samsonova, sure disproves that assumption. She’s either batshit crazy or just plain evil, and either way she’s a definitive threat to anybody…

Lizard Man Returns!

The fabled Bishopville swamp creature known as Lizard Man appears to have surfaced again Sunday afternoon. This is truly momentous, y’all. 99% of the time, when photographic evidence of the existence of a cryptid surfaces, it is grainy, shaky, blurry, or in some other way less than convincing. This here photograph taken by a sweet…

Carry on, Wayward Werewolf—the Dogman of Kansas

During our conversation I asked him if there was any chance that what he saw could have been a Bigfoot, to which he replied: “I’ve never seen a Bigfoot and don’t know how they act, but this looked like something that spends most of its time on all 4 legs.” They call them Dogmans (DogMEN?)…

Oh Yeti, my Yeti . . .

An 8ft (2.4m) tall “well-preserved yeti” is sold at auction in Somerset for £1,350 Well, I WISH it was my Yeti. I admit it. I’m a sucker. A willing and joyful mark. Serve me up some ballyhoo and I come back like little Oliver Twist, empty plate held in trembling hands, pleading, “Please, sir, may…

Mystery Creature on the loose in Milwaukee

Milwaukee officials are still not sure exactly what kind of animal has been spotted for the last week. It could be a lion; it could be a cougar. Whatever it is, it has captivated the city. Milwaukee, home of beer, cheese, and Jeffrey Dahmer. And now home to the mysterious . . . um, they…

Eyeballs are a real pain in the ass!

CASPER, Wyo. – Police made a routine traffic stop early Thursday morning and got more than they bargained for when Roy Tilbott, 51, stepped out of his El Camino for a field sobriety test . . .  I’m pretty good at spotting a fake news story. To me, they’re all pretty obvious. Not to brag…

One Way or Another(kin)

We talked to the internet residents who feel more like foxes, dragons, and cats than members of Homo sapiens. They are called “Otherkin.” Basically, they are human beings who believe themselves to be something else. An elf, a certain kind of animal, dragon, unicorn, mermaid, alien, an elemental spirit of some sort. Lycanthropes fall into…

A legend goes into retirement

Rick Baker retiring: after four decades in the film business, one of the most powerful talents in visual effects is walking away. You wanna see the difference, watch AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON. Then watch its lackluster sequel, AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN PARIS. I’m not talking about the overall quality of the films, although there…

The Morbach Werewolf

The Morbach Monster (Munster Von Morbach) is a werewolf that has been allegedly haunting the area of Wittlich in Germany.

Get Horny!

Abbots Bromley is a small, old village in the heart of Staffordshire, England. It has become renowned for its annual “Horn Dance.”  This is so freaking cool. It puts one in mind of THE WICKER MAN (the original classic, that is, starring Sir Christopher Lee, not that travesty of a remake with Nicolas Cage), where…

Occam’s Razor Shreds Werewolf Account

She heard a scratching sound from the window shortly after she fell asleep. In a flash of a lightning, she saw a huge, shaggy, wolf-like creature . . . clawing at the screen and staring at her with baleful, glowing, slitted eyes. She saw its bared white fangs. If this story is genuine—and we have…
