Pukwudgie, Aliens, and the Dover Demon…


– – It’s not easy to come up with an hour’s worth of strangeness to feed an audience every week, but Monsters & Mysteries in America tries its best to give us a steady diet of it. Three segments of a recent episode occurred in or near the Bridgewater Triangle in Massachusetts, where apparently trolls don’t just frequent the internet, but may also be found trying to lure people into the forest. The Pukwudgie is described as being a three to four foot high creature capable of speech who can’t attack intended victims directly, but tries to entice them to follow to some foul and unimaginable fate. Cases presented involving the Pukwudgie included a 1995 encounter when a man and his dog heard a creature supposedly say “We want you,” and a 2008 event when a video camera is said to have captured an image of one at the edge of the forest.

A second segment “Alien Brood” centered on twin sisters who reported being repeatedly abducted by aliens as children with successive abductions occurring into their adulthood. When children, the sisters contended that they were visited by aliens at night who paralyzed and levitated them and took them into a spacecraft, with injuries found by the sisters on their bodies the next day. As adults, the sisters reportedly were subjected to alien “reproductive procedures” and turned into “breeders” for the production of alien “gray”-human hybrids. One 2007 encounter was termed especially violent, and one sister reported meeting a hybrid child during a later abduction.

The third segment involved three sightings of the “Dover Demon” over two nights by teenagers in April of 1977 in the Massachusetts town of Dover. The creature is said to have a huge head almost the size of his body with no visible mouth and large, glowing eyes. Described as neither human nor animal, the unidentified cryptid resembles the Gollum in the Lord of the Rings saga…

    Uhm (lol), I believe you mean “Gollum.”

    The Golem is actually from Central European Jewish folklore. Basically, it’s the story of a rabbi who sculpted this giant muscular figure, then mystically brought it to life, in order to defend his village from anti-Semitic pogroms. But, in the end, it started to go on uncontrollable sprees of random destruction. So, it had to be destroyed.

    This legend, in turn, is thought by some literary scholars to have been the true inspiration for Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein.”

      You’re right, as usual! I’ve corrected the post, although there’s a lot to be said for “uncontrollable sprees of random destruction,” especially when I’ve been hearing Xmas carols since late October…

        Music Channel 890 at least had the decency to wait until midnight of November 1, on my hometown TV set. šŸ˜‰

          By the way: I did a little re-reading of Loren Coleman’s ENCYCLOPEDIA OF MONSTERS (Avon Books; 1982), last night. Under the entry for “Dover Demon,” he mentioned that the closest description he could find of this creature, in any type of folklore, was that of the Cree Indian Nation in Canada. Specifically; a trickster-imp called the Mannegishi (sic?).

            Small monsters can be nasty out of proportion to their size, The gentleman who reported hearing a pukwudgie said it vocalized, “WE want you,” as if there were a group of them. What they wanted him for was unspecified, but possibly they could have dragged him into the forest, tied him to a tree, and forced him to watch “The Sound of Music”…I shudder at the mere thought!

    I assume you’re referring to the NBC remake with Carrie Underwood. Whoever came up with that idea hopefully got nothing but coal from Santa Claus!
