Bob Gimlin speaks out about Bigfoot footage

One of the two men who filmed the infamous Bluff Creek Bigfoot video has long regretted his involvement.

Filmed in 1967 in Northern California, the Patterson-Gimlin film has long remained the most hotly debated and tantalising piece of footage ever recorded in relation to the Bigfoot phenomenon.

The video, which offers a clear view of a large bipedal ape-like creature walking along the creek bed, soon became world-famous and attracted the attention of Bigfoot enthusiasts and critics alike.

Patterson himself sadly passed away back in 1972 which means that Bob Gimlin, who sold his share of the rights to the film to another researcher for the measly sum of $10, is now the only person left alive who knows what really happened that day.

The level of harassment and abuse he has since received over the footage however has left him wishing that he had never agreed to take part in the original expedition in the first place.

“It ruined me,” he said. “They’d come driving in my driveway all times of the night and go ‘Bob! We want to go out Bigfoot hunting.’ My wife was a teller at a savings and loan institution. Of course, she was sitting right there and the public would come in and make smart remark.”

“This went on and on and on until she come home crying. She’d say, ‘I’m not tough enough.’ A couple times we were going to split up over this.”

Despite these problems however Gimlin still maintains that he knows what he saw that day.

“I can understand why they don’t believe in it – because I didn’t believe it either. But I saw one. And I know what I saw. And I know it wasn’t a man in a suit. It couldn’t have been.”

Cryptozoology – Residents to hunt 8ft ‘werewolf’ in England

Hull residents have reported several sightings of a “half-human, half-dog” beast roaming wild in the woods, reportedly around 8-feet-tall. It was reportedly sighted running on two legs and then on all fours around the Barmston Drain, a man-made channel near the town of Beverley.

A woman who claimed to have spotted the mysterious beast in December told the Express: “It was stood upright one moment. The next it was down on all fours running like a dog. I was terrified. It vaulted 30ft over to the other side and vanished up the embankment and over a wall into some allotments.”

There were reports of seven separate sightings of the creature. Residents have decided to organise a hunt on the nextfull moon to try film and catch the beast.

Local Labour councillor Steve Wilson has said he is taking the sightings seriously. He told the Express: “I am happy to keep a diary of sightings by people around here and report them to Hull Council.”

The idea of werewolves became more popular in Europe during the witch trails, where people thought witches could transform themselves into animals. The full moon being the cause of transformation only became a popular part of the werewolf myth in the 20th century.

The myth of ‘Old Stinker’, the beast of Yorkshire has fuelled belief that the sightings are real. While it was known that wolves used to dig up corpses in graveyards in the Yorkshire Wolds, close to Barmston Drain, from this was born the legend of Old Stinker, a werewolf with red eyes and bad breath which was thought to have stalked the area hundreds of years ago.

Charles Christian, author of A Travel Guide To Yorkshire’s Weird Wolds, told The Sun that the region is renowned for sightings of wolf-like creatures. “The Yorkshire Wolds was actually one of the last parts of England to have wild wolves,” he explained.

“Old Stinker was said to be operating on the other side of them but it would be no distance at all for a large animal to get to Hull. When you get multiple sightings combined with a tradition of stories going back centuries it is hard to ignore the possibility something might be there,” Christian said.

‘Ghost doctor’ spotted stalking the corridors of abandoned hospital

Once a proud medical institution, Poole Hospital sanatorium originally opened in 1932 and shut its doors in 1989

Poole Hospital and Grey Towers Hall

Visit: Can you see “a man dressed in all white” at the end of the hallway?

Is this the figure of a ghost stalking the corridors of an abandoned hospital?

Taken in the 1990s, the picture of a deserted sanatorium is enough to send a shiver down your spine.

After the pictures of Poole Hospital were published in the Gazette, readers claimed they could see “a man dressed in all white” who looks like a doctor at the end of the hallway.

Posting on Facebook, Jo Griffiths said: “Just looked through the photos and on picture 20 it looks like a man dressed all in white at the end of the corridor!”

And others soon agreed, with Jo Savage replying: “Spooky”, while Brad Allen said: “I’m convinced.”

Bob Murray added: “Was spooky, few experiences. After Poole was closed Cleveland Police used Grey Towers for dog training.

“No dog would go into the chapel would not go past the door the police handler could not believe it.”

And Keith Shorten said: “I done security up there on permanent nights when it closed down and believe me I did not look forward to my shifts.”

The main building was demolished around 2002 for housing. Grey Towers Hall has now been converted in to flats.

Online supernatural figure, cited in relation to a number of real-life incidents, is heading to the big screen

A movie based on the mythical online figure Slender Man is reportedly on the way.

The meme, which originated in 2009, centres on a supernatural character who abducts and stalks others, especially children. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Sony division Screen Gems is set to produce the film, with the script by David Birke, whose credits include Paul Verhoeven’s upcoming thriller Elle.

The figure originated on website Something Awful as part of a Photoshop contest. Eric Knudsen submitted images of a man with long arms and featureless face, and the character spawned a mythology and various games as well as a low-budget film in 2013. TV shows such as Supernatural and Law and Order have also used the character as inspiration.

In 2014, Slender Man also made headlines when the character was connected to a number of real life incidents. In Wisconsin, two 12-year-old girls stabbed a classmate to allegedly please the character, while later that year a 14-year-old girl set her house on fire, with her family inside, citing a similar motivation.

News of a film follows rumours that the next series of American Horror Story will also focus on the character, while a HBO documentary called Beware the Slenderman recently premiered at SXSW.
