#239: Vicious Venezuelan Littlefoots

In the mid-1950s reports began flooding out of Venezuela regarding a rash of all-too close encounters between human beings and evidently extraterrestrial entities; but these beings were nothing like the bizarre, but ultimately benign creatures that Steven Spielberg would make so famous a quarter of a century later. These things were small, hairy and unbelievably savage… and for eight months their reign of unholy terror would petrify a nation and become the stuff of legend.

#238: Penelope

Though the origin story of this ghastly, quasi-humanoid she-beast read like a mishmash of a gore-drenched 1950’s E.C. Comic and a kid friendly 1960’s Marvel superhero introduction, the fact is that—whatever her genesis may be—the hulking carnivorous creature known to natives of the Sierra Nevada Mountains as “Penelope” leaves all who witness her feeling both petrified… and lucky to be alive.

After many years this seemingly endless odyssey of terror finally ended, but little could he have expected that decades later he would have a nerve-rattling face-to-face encounter with a beautiful, yet bizarre being who seemed to have emerged, fully formed, from the depths of his fear addled psyche.

#236: Slendergumby, The Faceless Thing and The Tentacled Twinkie

While epic flaps involving repeated encounters with anomalous entities like Mothman are the stuff of legend, by and large the majority of paranormal run-ins involve brief and unexpected brushes with high-strangeness that leave the experiencer both baffled and horrified… here are just a few of the bizarre brushes people have reported with these macabre mysteries.
