THE BRAY ROAD BEAST

BOFBRAY

“In the early 1990’s a rural Wisconsin community called Elkhorn was at the center of a series of real-life werewolf sightings. As a local reporter, Linda Godfrey, began her investigation into the “Beast of Bray Road,” and other reports from around the county. For the subsequent three decades, the Beast of Bray Road has been the most infamous Wisconsin resident there is.”

The Official “Beast of Bray Road” Trailer

RATING:  5 Charley’s.
Any video with Seth Breedlove’s name attached to it is a must watch. This particular video, more so. It includes first-hand, reputable eye-witness testimony of what people believe to be a “Werewolf.”

ABRB
Linda Godfrey was a reporter at the time in 1992 when the Beast of Bray road made its’ ominous appearance in Elkhorn WI. Here, Godfrey showcases her first article about the local “Werewolf.”

Featured in the video is Linda Godfrey, investigator and author. Godfrey is the original reporter who broke the Bray Beast story, plus other paranormal events in Elkhorn WI., including animal mutilations and UFO sightings. Mind you all of these events and terrifying encounters are just the tip of the iceberg in this well produced piece of Fortean gold.

JAY B
Paranormal Investigator Jay Bachochin of Elkhorn, agrees with Godfrey that Wisconsin has long been a hot-spot of paranormal activity.

Still the question remains, why is this four and half mile long lonely country road subject to reoccurring visits from a “Werewolf?”

Paranormal Investigator Jay Bachochin, along with Linda Godfrey recounts descriptions of the Beast as told to them by eye-witnesses.

THE BRIDGEWATER TRIANGLE MYSTERY

BWTPI

The Bridgewater Triangle” hosts an unusually high volume of reports involving strange happenings, baffling mysteries and sinister deeds. From ghostly hauntings and cryptid animal sightings, to UFO encounters and evidence of satanic ritual sacrifice, this 200-square mile region in Southeastern Massachusetts serves as one of the world’s most diverse and well-known hot spots for paranormal activity
AMAZON PRIME’S BLURB

Was the strange creature that William Russo encountered on a late night walk with his dog one of the dreaded Pukwudgies that the local Wampanoag Indian tribe fears? Here is his chilling account.

RATING:  5 Charley’s
The Bridgewater Triangle encompasses slightly over 200 miles of weird in southeastern Massachusetts. Its points are anchored in the north, by the city of Abington. In the southeast, Freetown and in the southwest, Rehoboth.

TRIANGLE CROP
From ghoulies and ghosties. And long-leggedy beasties
And things that go bump in the night, Good Lord, deliver us!
Traditional Scottish Prayer

And when I write weird, I actually mean REALLY WEIRD. There is not one denizen of the ranks of the  Fortean Pantheon that does not make its appearance in the triangle. Some on a hauntingly regular basis. And this documentary covers them all. The value of the video is that it interviews key investigators and witnesses. So, it’s mostly first-hand source data for you to consider.

KPWAE
Like the Mothman story in Point Pleasant WV, the Bridgewater Triangle legend begins with Native American and settlers conflicts. The bloody war that spread throughout New England was known as King Philip’s War, named after the Chief who lead the uprising. Five percent of New England’s population was killed in the struggle. Today, many people think there’s an Indian curse on the land, just as the people of Point Pleasant believe their town is cursed in the same way.  (See my review: Eyes of the Mothman.)

Overall it’s an entertaining and highly informative video. If you’ve never heard of the Bridgewater Triangle before, here’s your Masters’ Degree course on it.  Then after viewing it, ask yourself “Can all of these incredible things be happening in an area that anyone on the east coast can easily drive to?”

LORENC Loren Colman
Appearing throughout the video is the much respected researcher Loren Colman. In 1983, Cryptozoologist Colman published his book, Mysterious America. In it he described a 200 square-mile region in southeastern Massachusetts with a long history of strange, paranormal, and sometimes, sinister activity. He called the region, The Bridgewater Triangle.

ON THE YETI TRAIL- FREE

OTYTI

For the first time in over a century, Yeti legends and personal accounts have become the subject of scientific studies. Does the yeti really exist? Fascinating and thorough, this film sets out to meet the teams involved in this strange race across the world, featuring laboratories, hair analysis, footprints and DNA as well as the search for samples in Indonesia and the Canadian reserves.
Amazon Prime’s Blurb.

RATING: 3 Charley’s.
A totally fascinating and informative video, and the expert international cast of field researchers and scientists is truly impressive and unprecedented. You will learn a lot from watching this film, not only about the continuing enigma of Bigfoot, but how the scientific method analyzes purported evidence.

So why not a better Charley rating?

Despite the fact that the many scientists, who were interviewed expressed a willingness to have open-minds, but guarded opinions on the subject of Yeti/Sasquatch/Bigfoot, I felt the documentary crashed at the end.  As it turned out, at least for me, it proved to be very disappointing. Don’t get me wrong, I didn’t expect it to come out with definitive proof of the discovery of a new human or animal species, but I thought the insinuated atmosphere of open-mindedness would carry the day.

First, the editing was slanted in a particular way. The American team’s DNA analysis, which was presented in the middle of the film, arrived at more possible and stronger evidence that there may indeed be something tangible and real running around out there in the wilderness. These findings alone calls for more serious field and laboratory study. This report would also have giving the film a very dramatic ending.
AUSTIN TEAM
This is the big story here. Why was it ignored?

Instead, for the end of the video, the Director or Producer decided to present the findings of the English team. They announced that they found the evidence of the Yeti to be “Genetically identical to a Polar Bear.”
POLAR BEAR
Why was these findings not questioned or
confirmed by another lab? And why was it
accepted as the final answer to the identity
of the Yeti?

But here, the voice over then goes on to ask,
“How do you explain the presence of a Polar bear among the world’s highest mountains? It’s a species that has only adapted to life on the ice flows of the north.” Here the narrator follows up with the statement, “One enigma replaces another.”  This conundrum is quickly glossed over. In other words, “Nothing to see here folks, move along.”

Why did the documentary makers jump so quickly to this conclusion as being the definitive answer to all the multiple investigations being conducted worldwide? And why did the English team jump the gun with their announcement? As the voice over states; “Contrary to the promise that no information will be available before the publication of a scientific article, the results were announced by the press amid great fanfare.”

The concluding argument goes on to dismisses the entire documentary with the following statement:
“So DNA joins the list of insufficient proof along with the examination of hair under the microscope, the study of foot prints that could have been man made and the gathering of personal accounts that could have been fabricated. Futile too are the photographs and videos taken day and night, all considered to be hoaxes.”

So in other words, all gathered field evidence and the approved scientific method should be completely ruled out in the search for the truth?
