Mothman. Sheepsquatch. The Flatwoods Monster. A vegetable man with psychic powers. Unexplained creatures---some of the most bizarre ever witnessed---lurk in the forested hills and dark hollows of the Mountain State.
A haunted and abandoned amusement park sits atop an ancient burial ground. A mysterious tribe of "moon-eyed" people were annihilated long ago and haunt the land. A Shawnee chief was gunned down in cold blood by an angry mob at Fort Randolph possibly setting a lengthy curse into motion. Hundreds of burial mounds--many containing the remains of giants--have been obliterated. A sprawling decommissioned insane asylum with more than one hundred years of patient abuse looms in the background of a small town. West Virginia is shrouded in a dark past.
