    According to the Cryptid Wiki, "During the early 1970s, something horrible stalked the small town of Enfield, Illinois. Although Illinois is already home to phenomena such as strange lights, phantom black panthers, and Thunderbirds, something even stranger briefly haunted the people of this town. On April 25th, 1973, Henry McDaniel was among the first to encounter this terrible aberration, the Enfield Horror." The story from here gets weirder and weirder. Joining us this week on Bob After Dark, is Steve Michaels. Pro wrestling superstar, paranormal investigator, and pseudo scientist. We also talk about the Build-a-Bear Mothman plush!

    According to Allthatinteresting.com, "According to centuries-old Filipino folklore, the aswang combines the most terrifying traits of vampires, were-beasts, and witches into a single monster that inspires unparalleled fear to this day."
