The Dover Demon


The first story this week is brutal. It deals with some real-life heavy topics of child and spousal abuse. A spirit that seems to feed off all of this torment and make it worse seems to be attacking a family. Then the  infamous legend of the Dover Demon.  Cryptid? Alien? Hoax? Did four teenagers really seem some sort of monster in a Massachusetts town just outside of Boston in the Spring of 1977? Then in the back half, Lynze shares a new “thing”, a tulpa. She and Dan had never heard of it and the fan submission will make you wonder if the hat man himself is a tulpa. Then, a family tale of encountering some kind of shadowy figure and the remnants of what appears to be some sort of ritual while cleaning a home that is not their own. 

New Merch:  As it turns out, you absolutely CAN Coors Light your way into seeing cryptids and monsters. We’re being told by many of you that one can  in fact become… Werewolf Drunk.  Check out the cool new tee at featuring a double exposure design of a howling drunk werewolf and the phrase “Let’s Get Werewolf Drunk”

Opening Sumerian protection spell (adapted):
Whether thou art a ghost that hath come from the earth, or a phantom of night that hath no home… or one that lieth dead in the desert… or a ghost unburied… or a demon or a ghoul… Whatever thou be until thou art removed… thou shalt find here no water to drink… Thou shalt not stretch forth thy hand to our own… Into our house enter thou not. Through our fence, breakthrough thou not… we are protected though we may be frightened.  Our life you may not steal, though we may feel SCARED TO DEATH.”
