Occult America: Horror Stories in America’s Main Street
American folklore is rich and varied, reflecting the melting pot of cultures that shaped and continues to mold our populations. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the small, semi-isolated townships and villages that dot our national landscape. In many areas, the indigenous peoples of the area have embraced newcomers, melding their traditions with those of European, African, and even Asian descent into something new and different.
Within this rich treasure of folklore is a variety of creatures of mythology. Some are quite well known, like the Jersey Devil or Bigfoot. Others, like the Chickcharney or the Coyote legends are virtually unknown to contemporary Americans. Where did these creatures come from? Are they native to the vast American continent? Were they brought here accidentally, where they evolved and adapted to their new environment? And if they had to because they threatened the human population, how were they subdued? By whom? And what happens when one of them wakes up as a result of contemporary actions, the increased “noise” of modern society?
Every Small town has a ghost story or a local legend an indication of a darker history right down the street from the place with the amazing mom’s apple pie. We want to explore all of those darker shadows right off of main street.
