Lyle Blackburn is a native Texan known for his work in writing, music, and film. He is the author of several acclaimed books, including The Beast of Boggy Creek and Sinister Swamps, whose subject matter reflects his life-long fascination with legendary creatures and strange phenomenon. Lyle is also the founder of the rock band, Ghoultown, and narrator/producer of documentary films such as The Mothman of Point Pleasant and Boggy Creek Monster.
Lyle is a frequent guest on radio programs such as Coast To Coast AM, and has appeared on television shows including The UnXplained, Monsters and Mysteries in America, Strange Evidence, Finding Bigfoot, and The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs.
As a musician, Lyle has achieved similar success. His band Ghoultown has released nine albums, which have not only earned a loyal worldwide following, but found their way into movies, video games, and numerous live venues across the United States, Canada, and Europe. Highlights include an invitation to write a song for iconic horror maven, Elvira Mistress of the Dark, which aired on her nationally syndicated show, Movie Macabre.
When Lyle isn't writing books, hunting monsters, or performing with his band, he can be found speaking at various cryptozoology conferences and horror conventions around the United States. Just look for the trademark black cowboy hat.
Pamula Pierce-Barcelou is the daughter of independent film pioneer, Charles B. Pierce (The Town That Dreaded Sundown). Pamula has recently acquired copyright to his first film, the groundbreaking documentary (docudrama), 'The Legend of Boggy Creek', and has restored/remastered (4K) this classic at The George Eastman Museum, and Audio Mechanics. 'The Legend of Boggy Creek' is the "granddaddy" of all Bigfoot films, and has inspired countless filmmakers, including 'The Blair Witch Project's Eduardo Sanchez and Dan Myrick, and a rapidly growing sector of science, "Cryptozoology".
This is 'The Legend of Boggy Creek's first authorized release since 1975, and replaces decades of "pan and scan" bootleg prints...finally restoring the wide-screen Techniscope format, the critically-acclaimed cinematography, and Jaime Mendoza-Nava's beloved soundtrack (including the creature's terrifying scream), all captured from original elements!
Pierce-Barcelou appears in 'The Legend of Boggy Creek' alongside her actual mom playing 'Bessie Smith', who implores her children not to run! as well as the later, 'Boggy Creek 2- The Legend Continues'. She has worked as a MUA for her dad, and many others.
Pierce-Barcelou is also the Administratrix of The Charles B. Pierce Estate, in addition to being a wife, and mom of 5 children.
Brian “Duke” Sullivan is a Bigfoot Researcher from Montana, USA. After his sightings in 1972 and 1977, Duke has been researching Bigfoot for well over 40 years and has multiple sightings. Duke has been to various states for research, as well as living in and doing local research in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Florida, Texas, Wyoming and now Montana. Duke is the first researcher to bring the possible existence of the Cryptids known as ‘Mountain Giants’ and ‘Gugwe’ to the publics attention for the first time. Duke is the founder and host of the World Bigfoot Radio show on You Tube (and other platforms) which is a ‘talkumentary’ style format, with heavy stress on showing the evidence from legitimate researchers across the World. He has appeared on several radio shows and podcasts. Duke also heads up the Montana Bigfoot Project research team. Duke is also an extremely well versed and self described conspiracy theorist and has collaborated with Wes Germer from Sasquatch Chronicles on programs such as “Duke’s Conspiracy Corner” and “The Renegade” podcast as well as being a frequent guest on Sasquatch Chronicles, in addition to being a guest on Strange Familiars and The Bigfoot Outlaws.
William Lunsford, is from Texarkana, Arkansas and has had over 40 Bigfoot sightings. He's been researching them for 43 years. He saw the Fouke monster in 1977 and he's been hooked on the subject of Bigfoot ever since. As a teenager, William was walking down a road when he saw something strange. “And this thing was on the side off the road. He had squatted down, and he had a limb in front of his face. And he stands up. he lifts this limb and then he keeps standing up." Lunsford stood frozen in fear. “And he looks at me, and he's just wobbling, but you can see his eyes. They're as black as coals. It looked like he was reading my mail, and I just thought "Oh my gosh!" I knew what I was seeing. He sits there for a minute. He teeters, and turns and just that quick. In two steps, he was in the woods."
William researches in multiple states and has had several experiences. Due to all of his sightings and experiences, he has tons of great stories to share!
Steven Hill has lived in southwest Arkansas all of his life. He has always had an interest in anything unusual or anything that's not supposed to exist. Growing up as close to Fouke as he did, Steven just wasn't convinced that bigfoot lived in the south. Even after a sighting in 2009, it still took a few years before Steven fully came terms with the these creatures being real and the fact that they lived in his part of the country. Steven researches quite often and has a great many awesome encounters to share!
Robin McCray’s first encounter with the Sasquatch people was when she was very small, and has had contact with them ever since. She has been an active habituator and experiencer her whole life. Robin has worked with many cryptids as well as other beings. The Sasquatch people have taught her many things, she has learned more things than she ever believed she could. Her contact and relationship continues yet today. Robin has had a lifetime of experiences with them and she looks forward to many more.
Pat McCray has been doing Bigfoot research for the past seven years in Indiana. When he met his wife six years ago, everything changed. From then on, they have had regular contact with Bigfoot and have ongoing contact at their home. Pat has been exposed to more things than he could have imagined during this time. Now Pat and Robin work with the clans around their house and in many other areas. Pat will be the Nebraska Bigfoot Handicapped Garden Grand Opening Military Veteran Spokesperson.
