A few days ago we reported on the Creepy Forest Ghoul photo.
This reminded me somewhat of the video that did the rounds back in 2006 – “Possible fallen angel in Catalonia”.
I was struck by the similarity of the eyes and overall skin tone between the Spanish video and the ghoul photo.
Just to remind you, here is the fallen angel video:
From what I remember, this video was widely known to be a hoax … but what if it wasn’t a hoax…?
According to Movieweb, this image is Super 8 viral marketing that began on a hunting supply site’s Facebook page and wended its way to mainstream media:
More disturbing images have crept up on the Internet today in regards to J.J. Abrams’s sci-fi thriller Super 8. No real plot details have been revealed at this time, but we do know that the story will gleefully nod to the past works of Steven Spielberg, primarily the science fiction movies he made in the late 70s and early 80s.
It first appeared on Wildgame Innovation’s Facebook page. It is a picture reportedly snapped by a deer hunter on a reserve in Berwick, near Morgan City, Louisianna [sic]. It was originally being passed off as real, but now inside sources close to the production say its actually a viral image from Super 8. There is even video from a young Weirton, West Virginia extra called “Crying Girl”, who talks about having a run in with this creature in the movie.
So is it a hoax, spiderman promotional gimmick, a prank or could it be real?
A hunter in the U.S. posted a video said to feature the creature on the Wildgame Innovations website – and the piercing white eyes aren’t the sort you would want to meet on a dark night.
The deer hunter said he was lying in wait in the pitch black when a ghoulish spectre filled his sights.
Its eyes glowing in the light of his torch, it leapt from the undergrowth, flashed a look at the camera before vanishing back into the bushes.
The hunter, who has chosen to remain anonymous, was so frightened he said he broke the camera but retrieved the image from its undamaged memory chip.
The picture was taken on a reserve in Berwick near Morgan City, Louisiana.
What do you think??
In Ventura County, California, near the city of Santa Paula, lurks a strange monster. First sighted in the 1950’s the monster has been named the Beast of Billiwhack.
The beast is said to inhabit the area around the now defunct Billiwhack Dairy. The legend started when a 9 year old boy arrived home with scratches on his arms and back. He claimed that he had been attacked by a strange monster, but managed to escape and run home.
Those who claim to have seen the beast have described it as being Half man, half goat, with white fur and giant horns. The beast does not speak but rather snarls and grunts when seen.
Sightings have usually been reported by children and teenagers. One young boy was once caught with a sword and when asked why he was there, replied that he intended to slay the beast. This story was widely reported in a LA Times article in 1964.
This was not the only time that children decided to hunt down and destroy the beast. The article also mentions a time when a woman who leased the property, had to hold off 43 children with a shotgun until the police arrived to deal with the situation.
The farm was originally owned by a Swiss immigrant, August Rübel, in 1920. His two surviving daughters were interviewed about the beast, but both claim to know nothing about it. They said that they only knew of ghost rumours which started long after they had left.
