Have you tried the Werewolf Diet?

This shouldn’t have surprised me. There’s any kind of diet you could think of these days, isn’t there? Atkins, Paleo, Carb-lovers, Carb-haters, liquid, ad nauseum. I don’t know if any of them work. I’ve been overweight, I’ve been at my ideal weight, and I’ve been under my ideal weight, and every time I lost weight…

Werewolf Burgers

Sometimes the Universe gives you a gift. Just drops something right in your lap. You’d then be a louse of the highest (lowest?) order to grouse (See what I did, there? Rhyming words, all poetical like?) or turn up your nose at said gift. You should always embrace it, use it, or, if appropriate, eat…

It’s just a Devil Monkey, with evil in its eyes!

Expanding on the theme I addressed in this week’s posting on a Bigfoot sighting in Colorado (look for it, you’re bound to see it), I suggest to you, the DEVIL MONKEY! What, pray tell, is a Devil Monkey? A paranormal entity, or perhaps a cryptid. And what, pray tell, is the difference betwixt the twain?…

Bigfoot in Colorado

And here is your weekly Bigfoot report. Why? ‘Cause Bigfoot, the Abominable Snowman, the Alma, the Orang Pendek, etc.—if they exist at all outside of human imaginations, and if they DO exist, whether they do or do not comprise the same species of creature (My take? Maybe and no way, respectively.)—are man-beasts, not necessarily lupine…

Showin’ some love for la Lupe

Once upon a time, wolves preyed on humans. Possibly. There are accounts in history, but it is a remote history. We can safely assume that such attacks occurred in prehistory, too. This predation inspired a dread of the wolf well nigh universal in the shared human psyche, as well as a senseless hatred for the…

Evidence of Paleolithic Hanky-Panky

I reported last week on the presence of Neanderthal DNA in the genetic pedigree of modern humans (https://www.werewolves.com/caveman-dna/) and how this recidivist genetic material may be to blame for such modern human ailments and depression and certain types of addiction. This week we’re looking at it from an inverted standpoint. We are examining the evidence…

Dem bones, dem bones, dem GIANT bones…

This one is just for fun. Despite what the article proclaims, no, it is NOT real. The footage is fake. The story is fake. There are no giants that big and there never have been. How can we know that? It’s basic physics, peeps. There is a limit to how large an organism can get…

Review: THE WITCH

No need for a spoiler warning, here. There really isn’t anything to spoil. THE WITCH, which opened in theaters this past weekend, is exactly what it purports to be. There are no twists, no surprises. Everything is exactly what you think it is. There really is a witch, the family depicted in the film really…

Human-Animal Hybrids Exist! No, Really! And You Can Blame the Freemasons!

This linked site is a parody, right? A satire site? It has to be. Sure. Nobody’s that stupid, to actually believe this, right? Yeah. Who am I kidding? Of COURSE there are people stupid enough to believe it. There are people stupid enough to believe ANYthing. But applying the edicts of Poe’s Law—which states that,…

A Yeti on the Ski Slopes?

The advent of Photoshop has made it way too easy for people to fake, well, anything, really. For sure it’s easy enough to create fake video and even easier to make fake photographs. Today I and, I would recommend, any thinking person, am and should be automatically skeptical whenever I/we see any purported piece of…

Make them SCARY, dammit!

I am referring to the upcoming releases from Universal Studios, featuring their world famous menagerie of monsters, the ones everybody recognizes, the stalwarts. Dracula. Frankenstein. The Wolfman. The Mummy. The Invisible Man. Et al. How can any Horror fan fail to get excited about their return in a “shared universe” ala Marvel’s superheroes or the…

Teenage Werewolves on the Prowl

They are just a bunch of disenfranchised teenagers with too much time on their hands and overactive imaginations, running around pretending to be werewolves, right? But let us not dismiss them so quickly. Disenfranchised teens with too much time and overactive imaginations have been guilty of committing murders. These kids may be playacting, but that…

The Werewolf-ish Links to DRACULA

Over at our sister site, vampires.com, I have already, soundly, I believe, discredited the “new” theory that Bram Stoker based his most famous creation, Count Dracula, on a friend of his from Devon, a priest named Sabine Baring-Gould. The latter name should be familiar to werewolf aficionados, as the man, an Anglican priest, wrote an…

Caveman DNA

As it looks right now, the Neanderthal, long recognized as a more bestial, savage, less evolved, hairier, and uglier strain of human being, who died out tens of thousands of years ago (unless they survive into the present day as Bigfoot and the Abominable Snowman), may not have died out at all. Parts of them…

Ever’body Gettin’ Foot Loose

It IS a genuine mystery, is it not, how you always see shoes on the side of the road, but it’s just one shoe at a time? Think about it. Have you ever seen TWO shoes, two halves of a set, together on the roadside? I haven’t. It’s always just one. As if there is…

Introducing the kinder, gentler Werewolves of WOLVERTON

Well, this is different. If diversity is truly the spice of life, then we should all celebrate this new web comic by creator Peter Von Brown. The werewolves of WOLVERTON aren’t particularly scary; in fact they aren’t scary at all. They’re . . . normal. Like, they’re regular people. Who just happen to be werewolves….

WEREWOLF: THE APOCALYPSE needs your support. Are you game?

Remember White Wolf, the company behind VAMPIRE: THE MASQUERADE and WEREWOLF: THE APOCALYPSE? Those games were big deals back a couple of decades ago. At the zenith of their popularity they inspired an unfortunately short-lived television series and at least one mass murder by a group of really disturbed teenagers. (Note: This last was in…

Furry Knocks-up His Own Sister at “Furpile”

As soon as I came across this article, I knew I was gonna have to report on it. Even though I do have doubts as to its veracity. Doesn’t matter. It’s too good not to use. If it IS a made-up story, it’s a darn entertaining one. Shall we recap, for those who might have…

The Softer Side of Hannibal Lecter

How cool is Hannibal Lecter, that suave commingling of culture and anthropophagy? Being a cannibal and managing to score an Oscar nomination is no mean feat, and his biggest vehicle, THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, actually won that year for best movie. Tres impressive. But the good doctor doesn’t just appeal to the highbrows. He’s…

Bringing (Good) Bad Things to Life

There are certain names that any Horror and monster movie fan recognizes immediately, that non-fans might not recognize at all. Stan Winston. Rick Baker. Ray Harryhausen. Tom Savini. A few others. They are legends. They bring our fondest nightmares to life. They make us scream, and we love them for it. At present, there is…

Leopard Rampage

It sure sounds like the premise for a Horror movie to me. A wild leopard wanders into a school. You could just leave it there and you’ve got a satisfactory sales pitch to any studio. Details are sketchy, but it seems no children were harmed during the incident, although three people were mauled by the…

Werewolves in Decline? Says Who!

This linked article suggests that werewolf films have become a rarity in the market today. Really? I honestly hadn’t noticed? Maybe we haven’t seen as many highbrow, high quality werewolf outings this decade as in the last one, with GINGER SNAPS and DOG SOLDIERS leading the pack (pun alert!) but there are still werewolves aplenty…

“They let Hannibal Lecter out . . .”

Not really, they didn’t. Not on purpose. He escaped. You might argue that, through negligence, they INDIRECTLY let him out. “They” are the authorities in Orange County, California. As there have been 15 escapes from this particular jail since the late 60s, there might be some grounds for this charge of incompetence or shortsightedness. Probably…

Grizzly Rampage – Nature, Red in Tooth and Claw

Of course I can feel compassion for any person killed by a wild animal. Unless they’re a poacher, in which case I call it just desserts and say no harm, no foul. But a regular everyday person, sure, a person who isn’t a criminal—c’mon, admit it. It’d be pretty hard to feel any sympathy for,…

Werewolf Wear

We geeks do have our own culture, don’t we, and to an extent our own language? Trekkies have the Vulcan salute—a reminder that there are many and varied subcultures of geeks. And I am sure you have seen the practice among “normal” folks of putting numbers in the windows of their automobiles. I am told…
