werewolf, werewolves and lycans


Don’t stop, Rover!

A Florida woman has been charged with engaging in sexual activity with her pit bull, according to cops who found photos of the canine encounters stored on the suspect’s cell phone. I have a theory. Probably isn’t original to me; somebody out there has likely already given it a proper name and written a dissertation…

Saint Hubert, protect us . . .

We all know St. Patrick loves a good drink, and that St. George killed a dragon. Or something. But these two only scratch the surface of the saintly back-catalogue: there are saints for almost every concept you can think of. There’s a patron saint for just about everything. Think up some obscure cause or problem…

The Incredible Hulk: Werewolf in Green

Joss Whedon shares his thoughts on what it would take to bring a Hulk solo movie back to the big screen. Joss Whedon, the Maestro of all things Geek, recently said something that I’ve been saying for some time. Not the part about a PLANET HULK movie not working. I think it’s a great idea….

These Werewolves were real bitches!

These lycanthropic women attacked men, boys and cattle, adopting lupine form and slaughtering their victims until 85 of them were apprehended and burnt at the stake in Ostmilich on May 6th, 1591. It has been said that the European “witch craze” constituted nothing less than a war against women by the church. I’ve read lurid…

Aren’t you glad they’re all extinct?

The largest canine that ever lived, the Dire Wolf was the scourge of Pleistocene North America. Here are 10 facts you may or may not have known about this fierce predator. With JURASSIC WORLD stomping on all its competition at the box office, it has rekindled the old (at least it seems old now) debate…

Cannibalism. It does a body good.

The cannibalistic practice helped the Fore tribe develop genetic resistance to a mad cow-like disease. It is commonly accepted as fact among biologists that the eating of meat led to our human ancestors developing bigger brains. Protein builds a body, and in this instance it built brains in particular, as brains—smarts—were, more and more, what…

Are there “bad seeds,” or is it bad DIRT?

Are evil people born or made? Is it Nature or Nurture? Is human personality determined by genetics or experiences? This is a question scientists have been asking for some time now; since the discovery of DNA, certainly, though in truth long before it. Our ancestors witnessed the behavior of an offspring mirror the behavior of…

Breeders create a Werewolf cat!

Tennessee-based breeders used a domestic shorthair cat with a naturally-occurring genetic mutation to create the Lykoi (pictured) which has a ‘strong prey drive’. C’mon, now. You can’t really call it a wereWOLF if it is in fact a wereCAT. Even though they say it behaves more like a canine than a typical cat. This isn’t…

Other suggestions posted to my FB pages included bear, monkey, sloth, mole, turtle, and (albeit decidedly tongue-in-cheek!) chupacabra and werewolf! Karl Shuker is a rare beast, a scientist willing to not dismiss out of hand any claims of the fantastical, an occasional “believer” (Actually he’s just open to the possibilities, but the “establishment does like…

Charles Darwin: Werewolf Slayer?

Did the arrival of Darwin’s theory of evolution put paid to a widespread belief in half-human creatures? http://docs.google.com/viewerng/viewer?url=http://www.lightforcenetwork.com/sites/default/files/Fortean%2520Times%2520Werewolf.pdf I grew up attending a little backwoods church where the name “Darwin” was pretty much synonymous with “Lucifer” and the Science teacher at the local school was part of some nefarious conspiracy to convince the wee little ones that…

WOLFCOP is an instant classic

The plot revolves around an alcoholic small town cop who transforms into a werewolf after being cursed. Today I’m on a movie kick. I just finished commenting on what has to be the worst vampire film I’ve ever had the misfortune of viewing. (Cruise on over to VAMPIRES.COM for my succinct review of VAMPEGEDDON.) So…

SERIAL THRILLER a little less than thrilling

For such a famous case on a network whose livelihood is devoted to exploring these kinds of crimes, Serial Thriller is a missed opportunity, and certainly doesn’t come close to living up to its name. If ever there was a wolf in sheep’s clothing, it was Ted Bundy. His story reads like a Hollywood thriller,…

Introducing the Dwayyo, the Werewolf of Appalachia

The beast has been seen by a variety of witnesses, including hunters, campers, and even park rangers, and there are numerous others who have heard its eerie, piercing howl echoing through the night. I’m a pretty well read individual, in particular concerning those subjects that most interest me. In spite of this, though, and the…

Clap for the Wolfman!

Broadcasting from the X, a shadowy but powerful radio station located just across the Mexican border, the Wolfman was an enigma to most of his audience. His voice, accent, and style revealed nothing of his origins, which turned out to be humble. How many Millennials know who Wolfman Jack is? It’d be an interesting social…

Young Eric has been bitten by a werewolf. However, he’s not particularly thrilled by this turn of affairs and wishes to escape his curse. To do so, he must find and kill the founder of his particular werewolf clan. This show was SO ahead of its time. An offering of the Fox Network’s fledgling season,…

Even a man who is pure of heart, and says his prayers by night, may become a . . . RABBIT?!

One case that exudes so much creepiness and bizarreness that it has become unfettered from all attempts to classify it is the case of the Clifton Bunny Man, a demented figure with the appearance of a man-sized bunny that has purportedly terrorized the wooded Virginian countryside for years. In European tradition, lycanthropes took the form…

How Do You Prefer Your (Human) Steak?

Archaeologists working near Mexico City found evidence of cannibalism. Using cutting-edge techniques, they re-created the methods and ingredients used to cook human flesh. It is perhaps the greatest of all taboos. It fascinated and repulses like no other. Cannibalism. One human being eating another human being. We know that it has happened. We know that…

There Really Might Be A Cannibal In The Jungle, But Animal Planet Is Making It Harder To Believe In It.

A scripted feature based on actual science, the film ponders the existence of real three-foot-tall human-like creatures — nicknamed Hobbits — that might have escaped extinction to wreak havoc on a group of scientists in the rainforest of Indonesia. Discovery Channel and its sister stations, of which Animal Planet is one of the most popular,…

The Real Deal?

This is a case of the man Bill Ramsey, “A true story of demonic possession” and is detailed in a book called “WEREWOLF”. I was watching an episode of Sally Jessy Raphael sometime in the early 90s when I first saw Bill Ramsey, the “real life werewolf.” Those were bad years for me, the early…

Werewolves in the Bible? Mmm, kinda.

Nebuchadnezzar was exiled as king of Babylon, stripped down naked, literally transformed into a werewolf, and he lived in the forest with other wild beasts for SEVEN long years! Are werewolves mentioned in the Bible? In a word, no. Not specifically. However, there is a great deal of imagery that, while not overtly lycanthropic in…

Can you still call it a “skin flick” if one of the participants is covered in fur?

There’s a long debated question as to whether having sex with a werewolf is bestiality or not. Nothing surprises me where sex is concerned. A fascination with deviant psychology once led me down a researchy rabbit hole wherein I learned more about a great many sexual deviations than I ever would have imagined. These fetishes…

Another Blood(thirsty?) Relative

Researchers have discovered fossils of a human ancestor in Ethiopia up to 3.5 million-years-old that overlaps in time with the famous Lucy species, Australopithecus afarensis. Another human ancestor has been unearthed, or if not a direct ancestor at least a club-swingin’ cousin. It blows my mind to think that there were once other species of…

The Terror of the Skinwalker, the Amerind Werewolf

The witch might wear the hide or skin of the animal identity it wants to assume, and when the transformation is complete, the human witch inherits the speed, strength, or cunning of the animal whose shape it has taken. We tend to think werewolves are a purely European or American phenomenon. Those with an interest…
