Snallygaster and Other Unusual Cryptids

The Snallygaster is a dragon-like beast said to inhabit Central Maryland, the Washington, DC, metro area, and particularly the Middletown area of Frederick County, Maryland. Many may not be familiar with this weird creature but that is changing thanks to a video game. But first lets learn something more about the Snallygaster.

German immigrants first settles these areas around 1730's and early accounts say their community was terrorized by a monster called a Schneller Geist, meaning "quick ghost" in German. The snallygaster was described as half-reptile, half-bird with a metallic beak lined with razor-sharp teeth, occasionally with octopus-like tentacles. It swoops silently from the sky to pick up and carry off its victims. The earliest stories claim that this monster sucked the blood of its victims. Seven-pointed stars, which reputedly kept the snallygaster at bay, can still be seen painted on local barns.

Snallygaster is an odd creature indeed but it is not the only. The Grafton Monster is another cryptid that some might not know about. This beast is a large humanoid cryptid said to reside in the forests around Grafton, West Virginia in the US. Another very odd think about the Grafton monster is that it is a large bi-pedal creature with no visible head, and covered in slick and white seal-like skin. In 2014,the television show Mountain Monsters featured the Grafton.

These and several other cryptids are featured in a video game. That game is introducing many new people to the world of cryptids.

Is This A Ghost, “Cloaking Bigfoot,” Or Something Else?

By Dorraine Fisher

Richard Stewart Taylor, a bigfoot researcher from Dallas, Texas got more than he expected as a result of a fairly routine trip to a Bigfoot Conference in Honobia, Oklahoma. Taylor is a semi-retired law enforcement officer and a registered mixed-blood member of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma. He claims to have a spiritual connection with Sasquatch and says they have tried numerous times to “make contact" with him.

At the conference,  he met up with a group of men who were interested in his research. After their conversation, he agreed to take these men to an area near Honobia with which Taylor was very familiar.

Is This The Ghost Of A Baby...or Something Else?

By Dorraine Fisher

Melissa Smith of Toronto, Ontario, Canada suffered a miscarriage in September of 2016. Not long afterwards, she claims a musical toy turned on by itself in her living room and started eerily playing music in the middle of the night. This along with other unspecified events forced the young woman, a paranormal skeptic, to rethink her beliefs.



Can Your Dog Sense The Supernatural?

A recent survey has found that 40% of dog owners believe that their dogs can sense ghosts, spirits and things that are beyond our plane or dimension. There are plenty of reasons to feel that dogs are ultra-sensitive too. They often have an extremely uncanny knack of comprehending human emotion. Many owners also feel that their dog is attuned to threatening presences, always on the lookout to try and protect them. So can dogs really sense the supernatural?


Dare You Enter The Most Haunted Hotels In America?

Fancy an unusual vacation? How about visiting some of the most haunted hotels in America. These are places that are steeped in history, shadowed with the memories of murders, suicides and untimely deaths. There are regular reports of ghosts, evil spirits and poltergeists and events that simply cannot be explained. You can spend the night, or simply just visit and soak up the atmosphere. Just make sure you are prepared to be terrified.

The next film in the popular "Crypto Files Series" is nearing completion and a release date. The film was shot in Harlan, Kentucky at a local business that is home to unusual activity.

In this film, the team does extensive historical research on the building to help unlock some of the secrets. During the investigation part of the film the team captures a variety of unusual evidence. This evidence is topped off with an apparent capture of an actual ghost figure.

Feel that Draft? Your New Home Could Be Haunted!

If you fancy yourself an ‘average American’, you can expect to move 11.7 times during your lifetime. If you're looking to buy or rent a home in the near future, it is not impossible that you may stumble across one of many haunted residences in the USA. While many fans of the paranormal may find the idea of occupying a haunted house fascinating, it's very unlikely that your real estate agent will disclose any supernatural occurrences during the viewing. Having a medium visit any prospective properties is one way to determine, prior to signing any paperwork, whether a house is haunted or not. If you have, however, already moved into your new abode, you can keep your eyes and ears open for a number of signs that point to the paranormal occupation of your home.


Due to being extremely busy, I forgot to make a post that our latest film, The Mysterious Monroe House, came out on DVD and streaming services in February.

In case anyone didn't know, the mysterious Monroe House is a place with reported paranormal activity. Some even claim the activity is demonic. The house was built somewhere around the middle 1800's and according to what we were told, has a very checkered past. The drive there was roughly a 6 hour drive for us. We got in the house a little after 5pm. We actually arrived a couple hours earlier and used that time to get something to eat and take some pictures and video of the town. Once in the house we were treated to an oral history and a tour of the house by the owner, Eddie. We investigated into the wee morning hours and finally called it a night. Most of us only got about 3 hours sleep before we headed back out for home.


England’s Most Haunted Locations Revealed

But step away from the capital city and you’ll find even more hair-raising locations in some of England’s most haunted counties.

Are You A Smart Researcher?

Here’s One Easy Way To Find Out

By Dorraine Fisher


Some of us are old enough to remember when information presented by certain sources was widely accepted as fact. People barely questioned the validity of the information and no one argued about it, least of all, publicly. Any information distributed by journalists, scientists, and other known experts was accepted by the masses because those sources were considered trustworthy. But that is no more. And we’re all left arguing and grappling with the truth. But why is this? Why can’t we know the truth? Why has the search for information become so difficult?

In the age of endless information, our sense of trust has definitely been broken by a giant wave of deception in all aspects of our reality. Too many people have been caught in too many lies. And in this Great Awakening where people are now questioning everything they’ve been told (with good reason), to all the information out there, there are now loads of counter information. And we’re messing up in our search for the truth. But why?

So, a few days ago I ran across this image on social media. The best I can recall I have never seen the image before, so this got my curiosity up and I had to start researching it. In the photograph we see what appears to be a human shaped figure lying on the ground.

Some think it could possibly be a Bigfoot waiting or watching the people taking the picture. Others think that the figure is more in line with the paranormal and think it could be a demon. A few have also suggested it could be a Dogman.

Adding to the creep factor is the fact there is a missing persons flyer posted on the rock wall.

I was able to track down some information about the image and later traced down a video explaining it in even more detail.

Are You Dreaming About Monsters? Here’s Why
By Dorraine Fisher


Monsters are real.

At least in the darkest corners of our minds. They’re deeply entrenched in our psyche and even in our conscious thoughts. So, it’s no wonder they turn up in our dreams. But why are they always there?

We seem to be naturally drawn to the idea of them. It starts in childhood from the earliest days we’re able to construct complete thoughts. Even if we’ve never seen one, the monsters are always lurking. Why? Because fear is always lurking. The unknown is real. And when we’re a child, so much is unknown to us. Fear is ever-present. We feel powerless without the protection of adults. So, the monsters are more real to us then.

But what about when we’re adults? As we grow older and become better informed, why don’t the monsters disappear?

Do Cats See Ghosts?
By Dorraine Fisher

The paranormal community is full of cat-owners. And some of them make some interesting claims about their mysterious furry friends. They claim their cats are able to see into other dimensions or can simply see ghosts or other kinds of beings that humans can’t see. I myself am not a cat owner at present, but I have had cats in the past, and they do seem to have a certain sense of knowing that humans don’t have. And, in my experience, they often did seem to be watching something around them that I was unable to see. And just staring into their eyes can give you a sense of mystery. They do have a look that says, “I know something you don’t know.”  And nearly every cat owner I know has a story about their “psychic” felines.

Using various meters during an paranormal investigation has become common place nowadays. But these different devices can sometimes cause confusion on which meter to use and when.

In the episode of Paranormal 101 Tony talks about three different types of meters we use during our paranormal investigations. He discusses the various pros and cons of each meter and gives tips on how to use the meters.  He also talks about some of the things than can cause certain meters to give off a false positive.

Which meter is the most accurate? When and what meter should you use?

So, sit back and enjoy this episode of Paranormal 101.


Would Nikola Tesla Have Believed In Things Like Bigfoot?

By Dorraine Fisher



I often look at Bigfoot in a lofty way. And that’s because I think these creatures are here to teach us all something. And I also think we may be missing the lesson.

Nikola Tesla, the Serbian born inventor and engineer probably should have been called a scientist. He was greatly admired by Albert Einstein as one the “scientists” and great thinkers of his time. He single-handedly made modern technology possible by paving the way for the creation of our wireless devices. In fact, most of the technology we have now is very much due to his innovations that took place way back in the late 1800’s. And there’s certainly enough information about him to talk all day. But right now, I’m more interested in his ideas about the non-physical.

As October is quickly approaching, and that is the month with some extra creepiness, I thought I would highlight 5 creepy and mysterious photographs. Sometimes very rare and mysterious images are captured by unsuspecting people when taking a picture. Some images are even captured in television shows or newscast. Some images just make you wonder and maybe even check under your bed.

I will also attempt to provide a small overview about each image but I will not go into a lot of depth.
Are you ready? Here we go!



Pictures Of The Most Famous Ghost Of The White House?
By Dorraine Fisher


It was Abraham Lincoln of course.

The first families have joked about it for years. Many guests of the Lincoln bedroom, including Winston Churchill, First Lady Grace Coolidge, and Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands claimed to have seen him. But paranormal researcher, Joshua P. Warren claims to have photographic proof.

This photo taken by a former White House photographer was said to have been taken in the basement below the Lincoln bedroom, leading Warren to believe that Lincoln is the one in the photo, though Presidents Fillmore and Polk also died while in office.

I ran across this picture and wanted to share and relay the story to our readers. If you will notice on the right side of the picture there appears to be a transparent figure. This, according to the story was taken in a church in the United Kingdom. I have slightly adjusted the picture and circled the possible figure. It looks as if this picture is from an old news paper clipping, but it made no be.

Here is more of the story about the image.


Sometimes in the Bigfoot community you may hear researchers and witnesses talk about being "zapped". The zap they are referring to is in fact infrasound. I think it is important that we have a basic understanding of infrasound and what it can do.

So today I wanted to take a little time and talk about infrasound. First, I guess we need to understand just what infrasound is and how it works.
