Red Sea Media has just released the poster art for Alexander Alyoshechkin’s ‘Synevir 3D,’ an eerie film being coined “the Ukrainian Big Foot,” set in a historical location. Lake Synevir, a famous lake in the Carpathian mountains of Ukraine, is known for its rich history throughout hundreds of years as a place of mystical, unexplained events. The film follows a group of skeptical students who decide to disregard the stories of strange creatures around the famous lake, and spend the weekend there. They shouldn’t have.
While on a recent book research trip (I’m working on a follow-up to The Beast of Boggy Creek), I passed through Darien, Georgia where I had the opportunity to stop off and investigate a famous cryptozoo creature known as the Altamaha-ha, or “Altie” for short. Although this particular creature does not fit into the scope of my new book project, I did not want to pass up an opportunity to learn a bit more about the legend and visit a few sighting locations.
When a beastly looking carcass washed ashore on New York’s East River several days ago, it quickly grabbed the attention of locals. The strange animal, pictured below, was discovered by resident Denise Ginley as it lay dead on the sand near the Brooklyn Bridge. Hairless, bloated, and looking like it had a rough time on the high seas, the creature inevitably brought back memories of the famed “Montauk Monster,” a similar beast found on a beach near Montauk, New York in July 2008.
