Some of you may be too old to remember the great video game crash from the early to middle 80's. Some of you may be a little too young to know about it, but at the time it was really a major blow to the video game industry. Some even wondered if it would survive at all.

The video game industry was at an all time high for revenue in 1983 but by 1985 it had dropped by almost 97 percent. During this time many big name companies went bankrupt and out of business. Many in the industry went from making money hand over fist to closing up shop and hitting the unemployment line. The main cause of the great video game crash was saturation of market, in laymen terms, the market was flooded with video games and related items.

Many of the games and consoles that flooded the market were very sub par. In other words the games being produced were utter garbage. Take for example, the Atari game E.T. The Extraterrestrial, which was based on the hit movie.  It was massively over produced and is often called the worst video game ever made. The movie was very popular the world over, the video game version came out strong as a Christmas item but quickly became a returned to store gift. Some of these games were so bad it caused reputation damage to the industry as a whole. After all, the ET game was nothing more than an attempt to cash in on the popularity of the movie. The ET game was so over produced and terrible, that the remaining copies were buried in a Alamogordo, New Mexico landfill. Recently, within the last few years, some of the buried ET games were dug up.

So, at this point, I'm guessing some of you are thinking, "what does this have to do with Bigfoot?". Well, let me give you my take on what is going on. In my opinion,we are already seeing a decline within the Bigfoot community. There appears to be less interest and less support than in days gone by. But this is probably only the start of the Bigfoot crash. I can remember when Ghost Hunters first came on TV, I almost never missed an episode the first few seasons. As I was getting kind of bored with Ghost Hunters, I discovered Ghost Adventures. Now I rarely watch either but think they are the better paranormal shows still on. Now you can watch these shows and ones like them at about any time of the day, 7 days a week.

Over the last few years there has been an explosion of Bigfoot and paranormal related TV shows. Many of which fall into the same fate as the ET video game, sub par.  The popularity of Bigfoot and Ghost hunting has been at all time highs over the last few years. This has caused a lot of very bad shows to be put on the air in attempts to grab some cash. It has in effect caused damage to the cryptozoological field in general. For people who do serious research of subjects such as Bigfoot, it has caused an increase in fake reports and plain old hoaxing. Many may see these TV shows and get the idea of faking reports, photos and videos, in attempts to get on TV.

But over the last year or so, there seems to be a declining interest in the subject of Bigfoot. I think this is directly related to overcrowding of "not so good" television shows and other factors. The market has been flooded with misleading and often sub par shows. Some are docudrama type shows, that attempt to pass themselves off as being real. These sometimes brings confusion to the cryptozoology community, when some people believe it to be real.  Producers of these shows should be upfront about the programs contents, to help avoid this confusion.

Now, I'm not against good quality, honest TV shows. In fact, I think if done correctly, it could help advance study of many unknown and unconfirmed creatures. I know of one instant, where a local man had/has a TV show. The producers wanted him to "pretend" he and a rival were about to fight. The producers wanted to build up the fake tension between the two, wanted them to pack guns and act mad. The main person told the producers, he wouldn't be doing any of that fake stuff.

So, has there been a flood of bad Bigfoot and Paranormal shows? I think the answer is yes. Has it caused a decline in interest? I think it has. Will there be a Bigfoot crash? I think there could be at some point.

What will happen after a Bigfoot crash? Well, if we take what we know about the video game crash and apply it to the Bigfoot and Paranormal fields, I think they will survive. The crash, like the video game crash, will shake out many of the "undesirables".  This type of thing happens often when something becomes very popular and it floods the market. Many knockoffs get created and floods the market even more. Then one day it reaches a tipping point and the bottom falls out. Which is not always a bad thing, even though we do end up losing some of the good ones in the process. I think we are moving towards that tipping point in the Bigfoot community.

But, there is some good news. The Bigfoot community and Cryptozoology community in general, has a good core of solid and honest researchers and supporters. This will insure that it will survive and grow in the future. The gaming community was able to save and build the video game industry back up again. And in many ways it became better than it ever was because it pushed the gaming industry into new areas and technologies. This can also happen for the Cryptozoology community. This is achieved by having a good solid base of researchers, artist, fans, supporters and yes, even TV shows.

While the crash may come, some of us will still be here after the smoke clears. We will put back on our backpacks, load up our cameras,strap on our boots and hit the woods. Guaranteed!

Thanks

Let me start by saying Happy Halloween to everyone and be safe. I thought today, with it being Halloween, that I would feature 4 of the top haunted places in Kentucky. So here we go!

Waverly Hills Sanatorium - This building has been featured in many paranormal TV shows and is visited by thrill seekers on a regular basis. Waverly Hills was originally a tuberculosis hospital from 1910-1961. There are claims that over 63,000 people died while staying at Waverly. While that large number of deaths is disputed, no one can deny that the facility did have a large number of deaths and questionable treatment methods for patients. Waverly is among the most haunted places in the world, according to most list.



Bobby Mackey's Music World  - Located in Wilder, Kentucky. According to one legend two Satanists murdered and beheaded a woman named Pearl Bryan in 1897. Her body was found minus her head, it was never found.  Famous ghost hunter, Zak Bagans called Bobby Mackey's " the most haunted nightclub in America". There are various tales associate with this area. One such tale is that the original building use to be a slaughter house in the 19th century. There is also a tale about a pregnant dancer named "Johanna" committing suicide in the building. Bobby Mackey's is also said to feature a "Gateway to Hell", referring to the old well in the basement. The old well is said to be where the slaughter house threw all the bones and guts of the dead animals. Some say that is also where Pearl Bryan's head ended up.


 Gates of Hell - Grandview CemeteryGrandview Cemetery, aka Kasey’s Cemetery or the Gates of Hell, contains the graves of people from the 1700s and 1800s as well as the ruins of an iron and stone gate. Some say one time an enormous green orb appeared here, hovered a short time, then shot straight up and out of sight in a second. Others say they’ve heard screams, seen shadow figures, and had car trouble while on the grounds. There are lots of reports from this cemetery and one report comes from a ghost hunting team. The team was in the cemetery conducting an investigation and discovered the remains of three dogs, a puppy, two cats, a calf and a deer scattered around the cemetery. Some believe that satanic worship is being conducted in the old cemetery. A scary place indeed.


Jailer's inn Bed and Breakfast  - A nice bed and breakfast that use to be a jailhouse back in the 1800's. It has everything a person could ask for in a bed and breakfast. It is even said to have permanent guest in the form of ghost. These ghost are said to be former inmates from the old jailhouse. Many patrons of the inn have been known to feel the haunting presence of these previous inmates. Some even report hearing the sound of chains and shackles.
Located in Bardstown, KY.

  

This is just a very small sample of the many haunted places and areas here in the bluegrass state of Kentucky. I know just here in my local area there are numerous cases of hauntings and tales of a freakish nature. I hope to feature some of them in the future.

If anyone, from any state, has experienced or captured ghostly activity, then feel free to tell us about it by using the form found here!   

If you are going out to conduct paranormal investigations in buildings or private lands, please have the owners permission.

Everyone have a great and safe Halloween!

Thanks

Interview with Paranormal Researcher Kevin Vaughn
(AKA - Big K)

I thought it would be good to expand our interview series and include ghost hunters and those that research the spirit world. So, I hit up my longtime facebook buddy Kevin Vaughn and he agreed to the interview. Kevin is the Co-founder and Lead Investigator of Scioto County Paranormal. SCP investigates paranormal activity around Scioto County, OH and the Tri-state area. They run SCP as a non profit/volunteer organization. Their investigations are free and done professionally and discretely.

- Start Interview -


TM:  How long have you been researching/studying the paranormal?

KV:  I started watching horror movies at the ripe old age of 5, watching chiller theater on TV. As I got older I started watching shows like in search of, unexplained mysteries. sightings. But I would say doing research, maybe I was 10, reading the books about UFOs, ghost, and Bigfoot. Just whatever I could find, I've been interested ever since. So, that was about 30 years ago.

TM: What got you interested in ghost, Was there a particular event that got you started?

KV: While growing up I heard all the local ghost stories and legends, I wanted to know more and see what I could find out for myself.
I lived in a house were a man was killed and his house keeper was tied up. He was shot one morning through his front door and died. At certain times of the year you could hear gun shots, his house keeper screaming, the loud thud of something hitting the floor and on occasion you could see a black shadow cross the upstairs grate in the floor to the attic door. We later learned he kept his money hid in the attic.

TM: During your research/studying of the paranormal, have you ever encountered aggressive behavior or felt in danger from a spirit?

KV: Not anything aggressive yet, there was my hair stroked and another team mate felt someone grab his leg walking down some stairs at a clients house.

TM: It seems Skeptics are always doubting the paranormal field, and make claims of evidence being faked, How do you deal with it?

KV: I try not to push my beliefs on other people. If they wanna believe fine but I'm not gonna force them. Most people don't believe until something happens to them.

TM: What do you feel is your best evidence of the paranormal?

KV: We haven't really caught anything I would consider to be good evidence, a few personal experiences but nothing to back up the accounts. (9 out of 10 times you catch nothing, its not like on TV were they catch something every time they go some place. That just doesn't happen.)

TM: Do you have a favorite place you like to investigate?

KV:  I have none that really stand out. I'd like to investigate any and every where we can. You never know, just because one place has nothing, across the street might be loaded with activity. So none I'm not particular, just any and every where.

TM: Do you have a place you would like to investigate but haven't got to, yet?

KV: Bobby Mackey's in Wilder Ky,  heard its got a lot of activity, has a warning sign telling customers its haunted. A lot of places really, but most are very expensive, and theres no such thing as a money back guarantee you'll catch something. Ghost don't respond every time you want them too, if they do maybe its faked.

TM: What would you be doing if you wasn't researching/studying the paranormal?

KV: Its hard to say, but nothing as exciting or interesting as the paranormal I'm sure. Maybe try writing a book on local legends and stories.

Thanks for the interview Big K! Good Luck on finding ghost.

- End Interview -

This concludes our 15 interview in the series. I have enjoyed doing them and find the various answers intriguing. I hope to bring you more interviews in the near future. Again, a big thanks to Kevin for doing the interview. We all wish him and SCP the best of luck in their search for the truth.

Thanks

The Haunting of Whaley House
The Haunting of Whaley House
The Haunting of Whaley House
Rated: NR, Running Time: 90 minutes
Directed by Jose Prendes
Release date: 2012, Available Now- Blu-Ray, DVD, Streaming
 Movie Review
By
Thomas Marcum

This fictitious movie is loosely base on the haunted folklore of the real Whaley House. During the making of this film the real Whaley House was considered for shooting the film but after going into the real Whaley House the director seen that the rooms were just too small to fit the cast, crew and equipment in them.

Now my thoughts about the movie. My wife and I sat back tonight and wanted to watch a decent scary movie, so we picked The Haunting of Whaley House. The basic premise of the movie is what got our attention, a small group of amateur ghost hunters spend a night in the haunted Whaley House.
The movie starts off pretty good and the set up is decent enough, the set up being that a tour guide at Whaley House don't believe the house if really haunted. It's not too long into the movie that the non believing tour guide is talked into taking her friends into the Whaley House for a night visit. There are several gruesome deaths during the movie and a few "jumpy" parts. The acting is decent enough but there is some weak and/or over acted scenes and in some of the scenes the lighting is not the best and the results is a too dark scene but it really don't effect or change the enjoyment of the film.


Overall we found the movie entertaining and my wife actually stayed awake until the end, which rarely happens. If you are a fan of ghosting hunting shows, which is the fan base this film seems geared towards, you might like this movie. While this movie is not a homerun or a must watch by any means, it is a decent film for a cool October night. The movie should be enjoyable for both believers and non believer in the paranormal. Check out The Haunting of Whaley House on Facebook by Clicking Here.

The Haunting of Whaley House is presented by The Asylum, who recently made some waves with the movie Sharknado.

Rating: 3 out of 5

 Thanks

Recreation made at actual area where Girl in White was seen

The Girl In White

One night several years ago (in the 1990s) I was on my way back to Pineville, KY. after having been to see my fiancée. She lived at Black Snake, KY. which is just off of US 119, about nine miles from Pineville. I say night but it was actually around 2:00 a.m.

    The area where the Light House Mission is located has been different things – a garage, a restaurant, etc. At that time some of the coal truck drivers where parking their trucks in the lot around the building that was there. As I approached this place I noticed there was a young girl in a long white dress standing on the step on the driver's side door. It appeared that she was looking in the truck.

     I realized that no one should be around those trucks at that time of morning. I had already passed the area, but I was only 40 or 50 feet from it. I turned around to go back and see if the girl needed help or what was going on. When I pulled into the lot my head lights swept the truck she had been on, but she wasn't there.

     I got out of the car and looked around the trucks and the lot, but the girl was nowhere to be found. I realized then that it had been a dissatisfied spirit that I had seen. I got back in the car and went on home.
     A few weeks later I was going to my fiancée's. I was driving along US 119 , headed toward Harlan, KY.  It was about 8:00 p.m. and was dark and dreary, as there was a light drizzle of rain falling. As I passed the lot where the trucks were parked I again saw a girl in a long white dress. She was standing on one of the trucks , looking in the window.
     I stopped my car in the middle of the road to look back at the girl. But when I turned my head to look she was gone.
     I just saw this apparition twice and have never heard of anyone else seeing her, but I believe The Girl In White roams that area looking for something or someone.

Thanks

Actual spot of sighting 
First let me start by saying this is a true story of a personal encounter, I have dubbed it "HWY 119 Ghost". This took pace somewhere around the mid 90's and it was a amazing but weird encounter.
This took place about 1 mile, maybe a little more, coming from Pineville, KY traveling towards Harlan, KY  on hwy.119 which is known as the Harlan road. The time was somewhere between 10pm and 12pm. I and my wife ran a business for several years in Pineville, working side by side, and we normally got home pretty late. We have seen many amazing things together due to our late night travels. Also let me say this is the first time this personal encounter has ever been told on a public type forum or shared to the general public.

It happened on our way home from work late one night as we were driving on the 119 road in a Camaro. I noticed something kind of glowing and sparking looking in a tree on the left side of the road (See photo above). We were moving pretty fast, I'd guess between 55-65 MPH, but I could see this white thing in a tree, it was kind of ball shaped, and as we approached it, it quickly moved to the right (my right) but it was up in the air, I'd guess about 10-15 feet high. The Camaro I was driving had T-Tops in it and we looked up at the ghost as it was almost right over the top of the car. The ghost thing just fanned out kind of like a sheet but it was not square, right over top the car and disappeared. It had a really white type glow with like little sparkly things in it. I said to my wife "Did you see that?" She replied "yeah what was that?"  and I said something like "I don't know...maybe a ghost?"

Here is my attempt at what we seen looking up through the T-tops
      Actually spot

Remember this was taking place pretty late at night and this object had a very bright glow against the night sky.
But wait that is not the end of the story. We drove on home and we talked about what we had seen for a couple hours before going to bed.
So the next day, I and my wife are at work and a friend of mine comes in named Forest. I quickly start telling him "We seen a ghost on 119 last night." He replied "a ghost?"

So I gave him a quick rundown of what happen and he just laughs at us and pokes a little fun about the event. Then our conversation turns to a Tattoo artist that lived behind my house named Shane. It seems Forest wanted to get an old tattoo covered up. So I told him a little about Shane and where he lived and Forest left.

Well, not longer after that a woman came in that we know well and we always called her "coon hunter" because her and her husband like to coon hunt. So me and my wife tell her about seeing a ghost on 119 and she ask "was it around the old Mary Lee's restaurant?"  I said "yes, just past it...why?"
Coon hunter said "it was probably that little girl." I said "what little girl?" So Coon hunter tells me about a little girl who was killed right there that was either getting off a school bus or waiting to get on a school bus and was hit by a car. There is a blind curve right there but I had not heard about this little girl getting hit but it had taken place years before I drove that road a lot. So Coon hunter goes on and tell me that others had seen it over the years.

So this was info that helped me and wife put the pieces together on what we had seen.
Still this is not the end of the story, just stay with me.

You know my friend Forest I was telling you about, well about a week goes by and Forest comes back in the store and he has a funny look on his face. I greet him and ask something to the effect of how's it going or something and he said  "We seen it." I was like "you seen what?", by this time the excitement of seeing the ghost had sunk in for me and my wife. He said "the ghost." See he had been going up where I live to  see Shane the tattoo guy and getting the cover up done.

So Forest tells me that he and his wife were on the way back home and seen the ghost.
I ask "where did you see it at?" and Forest replies "Next to Mary Lee's old store, it was next to the guard rail." I ask him "what did it look like?" He replied " it was standing next to the guard rail and it kind of looked like a person but had like flowing orange ribbons flowing through it."  Forest continued "it scared us, we didn't know if it was a sign that something was going to happen to us or that something was wrong at home with the kids, So at first I slowed down thinking something bad was going to happen to us and then I thought about the kids and I sped up".  So I said "I guess you don't think I'm crazy now do you?" and he replied "no, it was scary."  I said "see I told you."

Here is the location of when Forrest and his wife seen the ghost
  Actual Spot



Almost every time I travel through that spot I look for this ghost, it's been years now and I've never seen it again but as long as I live and travel that stretch of  road I will be looking to for it. I have tried to  tell this encounter to the best I can remember, all the quotes may not be exactly as they were said but they are close to it.
If anyone in my area reads this account and have seen this ghost in this spot feel free to contact me via email at thecryptocrew@kih.net

Over the years I have had many wonderfully weird experiences and I hope to have more. There are many things I hope to share with my readers and followers in the months to come. This event is 100 percent true and nothing could ever change my mind about it. Thanks goes to google maps for the road view pictures and I tried to re-create the events just as they happened.

Thanks

Actual Court House Building

Over the years I have actually been involved in some ghost "sightings." Here I'd like to tell you about one of the earliest ones.

Back in the 1980s I was Supervisor of Bell County Dispatch which handled telephone and radio calls for the Bell County Sheriff's Department, the Pineville Police Department and the Bell County Volunteer Fire Department. At that time Dispatch was located in the basement of the Bell County Court House.

The person who worked the midnight shift, from 12:00 midnight to 8:00 a.m., was a lady named Pat Whitt. Pat had told me that two or three times during the last month or so she had heard someone on the upper floors opening and closing doors. There wasn't supposed to be anyone else in the building during those hours except for the state police troopers who had an office next door to dispatch who would come into the building occasionally to do paper work.

I discussed this with Bell County Volunteer Fire Department Chief Earl BeBusk, who also had office space close to dispatch. We decided to have a group of volunteers on stand-by and the next time Pat heard the doors opening and closing she was to call me and we would search the building from top to bottom.

A few weeks went by before I got the call from Pat - at about 2:30 a.m. Within thirty minutes we had all of the volunteers assembled at the court house. Our game plan was to lock down the elevator and position someone in the stairwells on each floor and at each entrance to the building so that no one could enter or exit without being seen.

With the volunteers in place Debusk and I started on the second floor, checking doors. We found all the offices to be secure and the doors that didn't lock, such as the bathrooms and supply closets, revealed no one. We moved down to the first floor. While we were checking those doors we heard doors opening on the floor above. We went back to the second floor for a recheck and while doing that we heard doors opening on the first floor.

We checked and rechecked both floors several times and during each check we would hear doors above or below us being opened. And no one had been seen using the stairwells or entering or leaving the building.

We finally gave up and returned to dispatch.
Pat said, "Well? Did you find anyone?"
Knowing their had been rumors for years that the building was haunted, I told Pat this and jokingly said, "Pat, it has to be a ghost"
"Oh. That's O.K. then if it's a ghost. I just didn't want a live person in here that I didn't know about," Pat replied.

Ghost in the basement?
This photo was reportedly taken in the 1930's by a widow woman who's husband had died of a heart attack several years prior. Did her husband show back up in the basement?
Is the photo real or fake?
I ran the photo with some software I have and it came back as a possible photoshopped detected for the image. While the analysis was not 100 percent for certain it was a photoshopped image it did point to some type of photo manipulation.
So most likely this is a fake.

Thanks

This photo was taken by the Midwest/Minnesota Paranormal Society at the Colfax Cemetery.
MMPS was there doing an investigation into a  local legend called "Timber Lake Road".
The story goes that there have been many sightings of red eyes in the forest, screams, dogs barking, moans from a woman, and strange shadows. Just all kinds of weirdness. There is also a claim of  piles of dead rats being found in the winter time.
The photo was taken on the night of July 26, 2009, it was take with a Cybershot 7.2 megapixel.
I have zoomed in on the figure in one of the following photos.

Here is the original photo of what might be a real ghost.
Colfax Cemetery Ghost photo


Here is a zoom on the figure.
Zoom of the figure in the photo.


Here is a daytime photo of the same area

Some have attempted to debunk the ghost photo as just a reflection but I'm not so sure about that.
The investigating team of MMPS alos reported feeling cold spots and getting goose bumps.
It does appear there is definitely something going on in the photo and the Colfax Cemetery.
What is your opinion of the photo?
(I searched the internet for a website for MMPS but could not find one - If anyone knows it please let me know and I'll add a link.)

Dark figure

The shadow in the background is said to be the submitter’s late husband. It seems the husband died of cancer and now haunts his former home and is appearing as a shadowy figure.

Here is a Zoom I did of the Figure.

So do you think it could be real?

Horror or Hoax ?
The Big Hoax of the Amityville Horror!

            The Amityville Horror, starring James Brolin and Margot Kidder back in 1979 was one of the most famous cult-classic horror movies of all time. It was based on the best selling book by Jay Anson, The Amityville Horror: A True Story that had been published in 1977.  And that was the main reason movie-watchers flocked to theaters in droves to see the film. It was said to have been based on a true story of a house haunted by demonic spirits in Amityville, New York after six people had been brutally murdered there.
            On November 13, 1974 Ronald and Louise DeFeo and their two sons and two daughters were shot to death in their beds in the house at 112 Ocean Ave. After their one surviving son, Ronald Jr. (Butch) DeFeo was arrested, convicted of the crime, and sent to prison, the house was put up for sale.
George & Kathy Lutz in the late 1970’s

            In 1975, George and Kathy Lutz and their three children moved into the house. But not long afterward, they claimed some horrifying things took place there. Icky green slime oozed from the ceilings, an unidentified force ripped doors from their hinges and slammed cabinet doors, they were attacked by a swarm of insects,  and a demonic face with glowing red eyes looked into their windows at night and left cloven hoof prints in the fresh snow.
            In an attempt to stop the activity, it was said a priest was called in to bless the house only to find himself with painful blisters on his hands. He promptly left after being told by a demonic voice to “Get out!”
            A local TV crew reported the strange goings on in the house. Numerous ghost hunters and psychics were called in and all came to the conclusion the house was possessed by some kind of demons and that only an exorcism could solve the problem.
            The Lutzes promptly left the house and helped Anson with the details as he wrote his book.
  Many people doubted the story, though Anson and the group still presented it as truth. 
            But as time passed too many holes were found in the story and larger questions were raised. It seems with all the horrific activity that supposedly took place in the house during that time, the police were never called. And when a researcher Rick Moran checked into the story about the demon peering through the windows and leaving hoof prints in the snow, it seems there had been no snowfall reported at that time. He found this along with nearly a hundred other discrepancies and inconsistencies. Moran  also questioned Father Pecoraro, who had blessed the house, and he claimed he never saw anything unusual in the house.
            And in spite of all this, the Lutzes stuck to their story as they collected large sums of money from from their rights to the film and book.
            But it all finally unraveled when Butch Dafeo’s lawyer, William Weber, confessed that he and the Lutzes had created the tall tale together. Weber had made up the story in order to get a new trial for Dafeo while the Lutzes continued to reap the monetary benefits. But none of the reported events ever took place. George Lutz still maintains the story was mostly true but has never presented evidence to prove it.
The so-called paranormal experts and psychics who had validated the story ended up embarrassed and humiliated by their determinations.  And to this day, many people still don’t know it was all a big hoax. *******
