Movie Review: The Man Who Killed Hitler And Then The Bigfoot

By Dorraine Fisher

The Man Who Killed Hitler And Then The Bigfoot, starring Sam Elliott and Aidan Turner is not what you’d expect. This is a really cheesy title for a film attempting to be as serious as it can. And I think it succeeds...for the most part.

As Sam Elliott arguably delivers some of the best acting of his career, I would venture to guess that many bigfoot believers, as unconventional as they are, would be able to get past the strangeness of the premise of this film and really enjoy it. Though many bigfoot researchers could be left completely cold by the Hollywood-style portrayal of the bigfoot... or completely delighted. The jury’s still out.

I thought I would just alert everyone about a movie that was just released on November the 7th, 2017.
It is entitled Sightings and it is getting some pretty good reviews. Although, I have not watched the film I thought our followers might be interested in hearing a little more about it.

The plot, in a nutshell, goes like this:
"A dysfunctional family living on a ranch in TX is threatened by a cryptid in their woods. Ultimately, they must overcome their interpersonal conflict in order to unite and survive."

But the underlying theme deals with a skeptic taking the journey to becoming a believer after some extraordinary experiences.



Kronos Rising: Diablo
A Review By Dorraine Fisher

Max Hawthorne, the author of the famous Kronos Rising series has done it again with his latest book, Kronos Rising: Diablo. A carefully-crafted fiction about the Diablo Caldera, a volcanic island off the coast of Cuba encasing a giant salt-water lake that has long been the secret home of some terrifying monsters of the deep since the Cretaceous Period. But their imprisonment in this secluded lake is about to come to an end, and a nightmare is about to be unleashed into the open ocean.

This time around, in this intended prologue to the series, Max spins another harrowing, action-packed monster tale, painstakingly researched, and rich in scenic and historic detail, while delivering the same true-to-form, page-turning intensity as always. And all this in this comparatively short novella.

If you’re not familiar with the Kronos Rising series, this is a great book to introduce yourself. And if you’re already a fan, this book will fill some gaps in the story line you may have been looking for. Either way, it’s certain to not disappoint. It’ll keep you pinned to your seat and wanting more.

Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars

Okay, so most of us have heard of the Jackalope, right? One of the long standing "jokes" in the realms of the cryptid world. The fabled rabbit with antlers. It is an amazing sight that we can view thanks to some skilled taxidermy.
Like many unusual creatures and tales, there seems to always be some sliver of truth buried in these folkloric stories. The Jackalope is no different. As unreal as it seems, it has just a small dab of truth possibly sprinkled in the fabled creature story.

But first a brief history about the Jackalope.

The jackalope is a mythical animal of North American folklore described as a jackrabbit with antelope horns. The word "jackalope" is a portmanteau of "jackrabbit" and "antelope", although the jackrabbit is not a rabbit, and the American antelope is not an antelope. Also, many jackalope taxidermy mounts, including the original, are actually made with deer antlers.

In the 1930s, Douglas Herrick and his brother, hunters with taxidermy skills, popularized the American jackalope by grafting deer antlers onto a jackrabbit carcass and selling the combination to a local hotel in Douglas, Wyoming. Thereafter, they made and sold many similar jackalopes to a retail outlet in South Dakota, and another taxidermist continues to manufacture the horned rabbits in the 21st century. Stuffed and mounted, jackalopes are found in many bars and other places in the United States; stores catering to tourists sell jackalope postcards and other paraphernalia, and commercial entities in America and elsewhere have used the word "jackalope" or a jackalope logo as part of their marketing strategies. The jackalope has appeared in published stories, poems, television shows, video games, and a low-budget mockumentary film. The Wyoming Legislature has considered bills to make the jackalope the state's official mythological creature.

The underlying legend of the jackalope, upon which the Wyoming taxidermists were building, may be related to similar stories in other cultures and other historical times. Researchers suggest that at least some of the tales of horned hares were inspired by sightings of rabbits infected with the Shope papilloma virus. It causes horn- and antler-like tumors to grow in various places on a rabbit's head and body.

Shope papilloma virus is also known as cottontail rabbit papilloma virus (CRPV). Shope papilloma virus, is a type I virus under the Baltimore scheme, possessing a nonsegmented dsDNA genome. In the 1930s, hunters in northwestern Iowa reported that the rabbits they shot had several horn protrusions on many parts of their bodies including their faces and necks. This lead to the investigation and discovery of the virus in 1933 by Richard E. Shope when he was experimenting with cancer research. Shope separated the virus from horny warts on cottontail rabbits, and made one of the first mammaliam tumor virus discoveries. The virus is also a possible source of myths about the jackalope, a rabbit with the horns of an antelope, and related cryptids such as the wolpertinger. Bavarian folklore tells of the wolpertinger, also called wolperdinger, a mythological hybrid animal allegedly inhabiting the alpine forests of Bavaria in Germany. The wolpertinger is made up of several different animal parts, including antlers.

Shope determined the “horn” protrusions were keratinous carcinomas due to the infection of CRPV. These are typically found on or near the animal’s head, and can become large enough to interfere with the host’s ability to eat, causing starvation. The virus was originally discovered to affect only cottontail rabbits. in the Midwestern U.S., but can also infect brush rabbits, jackrabbits, snowshoe hares, and house rabbits.

Shope’s research has led to the development of an SPV model and the first mammalian model of a cancer caused by a virus. He was able to isolate virus particles from tumors on captured animals and use these to inoculate domestic rabbits, which then developed similar tumors. The animal model of the Shope Papilloma Virus (SPV) has contributed to our understanding of fundamental mechanisms in neoplasia, or the formation of a new, abnormal growth of tissue. The virus was sequenced in 1984, showing substantial sequence similarities to HPV1a. It has been used as a model for human papillomaviruses both before and after this discovery. The most visible example of this role is the HPV vaccine, which was developed based on and incorporating research done using the virus as a model. Similarly, it has been used to investigate antiviral therapies.

So, this is probably what started the jackalope stories way back in the day. It probably started with someone just catching good enough glimpse of a rabbit suffering from Shope Papilloma Virus, to start telling people "I saw a rabbit with antlers". You know, rabbits at notoriously fast and a fleeting view of one with antlers, would probably have gotten your attention. It probably would have got you laughed at pretty fast as well, while telling about it. But I suspect that others started getting a quick view of the running rabbit and the stories became more accepted.
 
Regardless, of the origin of the jackalope, the legend has many twist and turns. I guess that is what has helped it to continue to be in our current society and  to be a good source for humor.
 
The jackalope is subject to many outlandish and largely tongue-in-cheek claims embedded in tall tales about its habits. Jackalopes are said to be so dangerous that hunters are advised to wear stovepipes on their legs to keep from being gored. Stores in Douglas sell jackalope milk, but The New York Times questions its authenticity on grounds that milking a jackalope is known to be fraught with risk. One of the ways to catch a jackalope is to entice it with whiskey, the jackalope's beverage of choice. 

The jackalope can imitate the human voice, according to legend. During the days of the Old West, when cowboys gathered by the campfires singing at night, jackalopes could be heard mimicking their voices or singing along, usually as a tenor. It is said that jackalopes, the rare Lepus antilocapra, only breed during lightning flashes and that their antlers make the act difficult despite the hare's reputation for fertility.

So, in the end the jackalope is much more than just a myth. It's part of our history, our entertainment, our culture and I'm guessing, our future.

Okay, by now you are probably aware that I'm enjoying the return of the super awesome show The X-files. The current season (10) is rapidly coming to an end. But luckily for me, I missed almost all of the past seasons, mostly due to my work schedule at the time. Thanks to Netflix, I can now watch all of the past seasons of X-files.

So, I have started watching from season 1 and along the way there has been a couple episodes that I thought would be appealing to our Bigfoot/Dogman audience. All the episodes have been great but these two I want to talk about should be appealing to our Bigfoot folks.  So here we go.

The X-file Season 1 episode 5

This episode is titled "The Jersey Devil"  and the plotline is as follows:

"Mulder and Scully track a legendary creature that has roamed the New Jersey countryside for over 40 years."

But once you watch it, it's not really the Jersey Devil as we know it. Oh, the show does touch on the origins and legend of the Jersey Devil but during the episode it not the Jersey Devil. So, what is it you ask? It is more along the lines of feral humans, or what we call wild men. Once you watch it you should be able to related it somewhat to Sasquatch. How they hide, how they may forge for food in populated areas, how fast they are and how silent they can be. Definitely worth a watch.

The X-files Season 1 Episode 19

The title to this episode is "Shapes" and it should appeal to the Dogman/Werewolf/Shapeshifter crowd. I very much enjoyed this episode.
Here is the plotline:

"A creature, possibly from Native American lore, is suspected of killing a man, bringing Mulder and Scully to the Indian reservation where the attack occurred in order to uncover its identity."

There is a couple scenes where you see this creature running and it looks very much like a Bigfoot/Dogman. Then you throw in the shapeshiting element and it become more entertaining. I still wonder if "Dogman" is just the new term we are using for "werewolf".


So, there's you two very good episodes of the X-files from season one. If you have not watched them, I suggest you do. You can find them currently on Netfilx. It's a good way to kill a couple hours.


Thanks

You may have seen it being posted on Facebook or other social media sites. There is a new pizza in town and it's from Sasquatch pizza company. Recently the new pizzas started showing up in Wal-mart stores across the United States. Being a Bigfoot researcher and a lover of pizza, I could not wait to try this pizza out.

Sasquatch Pizza
I had my wife check at our local Wal-mart and sure enough they had these pizzas in their coolers. The pizza is available in 4 different flavors. The 4 flavors are: Meat Lovers, Supreme, Cheese Lovers, 3x Pepperoni. The pizza weighs in at over 3 pounds according to the box and advertisements. We opted to go for the Supreme version of the Sasquatch Pizza. The retail price was $9.99.

We always open our Christmas gifts on Christmas eve. We put the Sasquatch Pizza in the oven while we opened gifts. I was trying my best to get everyone to hurry as I wanted to eat the pizza while it was hot and fresh. Once all the gift opening was out of the way, all three of us dug into the pizza. There was enough pizza for all of us. I made sure to get the rest of the families thoughts on the Sasquatch pizza. We all agreed that it was very good and one of the best store bought pizza out there.

While the price may be a slight turn off for some people, the pizza box itself is clever and offers some entertainment. It also comes with a punch out Bigfoot on the back of the box. There is even a little more entertainment on their website (click here) as there is a map for you to plot where you saw the Sasquatch Pizza. There is also a Facebook page - Sasquatch Pizza Co - Make sure to give them a "Like". On the Facebook page there is a couple of short videos and other stuff, so check it out.

The Sasquatch Pizza brought back fond memories of good old days, when Pizza Hut served the Bigfoot Pizza. Many nights after work I would take my workers to Pizza Hut and we would order a Bigfoot Pizza. Most of the time we finished it off, other nights when there was some left, one of us would take it home. While the Sasquatch Pizza is not as big as Pizza Hut's Bigfoot Pizza, it is nice to see our hairy friend once again gracing a pizza box.

I really wish Pizza Hut would bring back the Bigfoot pizza but until then it's nice to have a Sasquatch pizza. Someone start a petition to get Pizza Hut to bring back the Bigfoot Pizza.

Check out this old Bigfoot Pizza Commercial that takes a swipe at Little Caesars.


And no, your eyes are not playing tricks on you, that is Haley Joel Osment in the pizza commercial,  who later played in The Jeff Foxworthy Show and The Six Sense just to name a few.

Pizza and Bigfoot ...what more could a person ask for.



Thanks

I've been looking into the phenomenon of Bigfoot for about 20 years or so. For many years, I did not post very much stuff on the internet. Over the last couple of weeks, I was reminded WHY I didn't post much Bigfoot stuff on the internet.

I have to say, over the last few weeks there has been some of the most idiotic Bigfoot stories I have ever seen, being published. For example, take the ludicrous story about a young woman who claims "Bigfoot is her baby's daddy". She states that "He totally freaked out when I told him I was pregnant, He got all weird and said he had to go see a friend and that he’d be back in a couple of hours. That was two years ago."

Or how about this recent report about Nancy Hoggart. Nancy claims "she is in a sexual relationship with bigfoot". Yes, really. She even claims her and Bigfoot are trying to start a family and that she has been in the relationship since 2008. In the article, Nancy goes into some details about their sexual encounters, which I'll not get into.

Are these stories a poor attempt at satire? I hope so.

Today I'm proud to announce 2 good things, first I would like to announce that The Crypto Crew's very own Dorraine Fisher has release her first book via Amazon. It is available via the Amazon kindle store. The title is The Book Of Blackthorne. I personally read the book and it was a very good read. Please Show your support.
