The Goatmam Legend

f all fantasy-creatures who is said to live in lonely, often romantic places, is the appalling and dangerous Goatman, a creature you should avoid at all costs. He is one of the USA's most horrific monsters: half man, half goat. He appears on quiet roads, often in the state Maryland, with a shiny axe that he uses for chopping up teenagers.

The police have always had problems catching the Goatman because his strong legs and endless stamina always allow him to get away. No one knows exactly where he came from. Legend has it that he is the result of a top-secret experiment, approved by Washington, D.C. and conducted by the local authorities. Something went tragically wrong.

According to rumors, a scientist was conducting experiments on animals to improve human's physical abilities. Unfortunately, an experiment with a goat went horribly wrong. A power failure took place and a strange mix occurred. When the smoke settled, the scientist had become a monster, some part man, some part goat. Insane with disappointment and fear of what would happen to him, he ran screaming out into the night. The Goatman was loose...

Because of his grotesque look, the Goatman developed a special hatred for young, pretty teenagers and his life is now dedicated to killing them. Some of his victims survive because they are in cars when the attacks occur. It appears the monster likes to jump up on the cars and scare the heck out of them. When particularly blood thirsty, he chops the tires so they can't get away. The evil creature then drags them with him, deep into the forest, where he consumes them with great pleasure.

Cabin 28 murders & The Strangers: Are Strangers same as Cabin 28 murders?

Cabin 28 murders & The Strangers: Are Strangers same as Cabin 28 murders?

By Clarencia Cynrae on May 30th, 2008

Hollywood’s horror flick, The Strangers, is the latest in imitation of scary movies. The plot is similar to all other psycho killers. It was written after taking inspiration from one or more real life murder stories.

A ghost was blamed because there were no clues to work on.

The Movie, The Strangers starred Scott Speedman and Liv Tyler.

Scott Speedman, Liv Tyler.

In the 1981, a family of a Mom, 2 daughters, 3 sons and a girlfriend of the eldest son, stayed in a cabin. This resort holiday home was in the hills in California. It was called The Keddie Resort. During that night, the eldest daughter, Sheila Sharp, a teenager, went to sleep overnight in a neighbor’s cabin about 15 feet away. The next morning, she returned to see blood everywhere in the cabin.

Her mother, Sue Sharp, was stabbed to death. Her hands and feet were bound. She was on the sofa which became blood soaked. The eldest boy, John Sharp, in the family and his friend, Dana Wingate, were also murdered in the same way. They were stabbed and their hands and feet were tied up.

The girl went to look for the rest of her family. Two brothers were in a back back bedroom. The younger sister, Tina Sharp, was missing.

The whole cabin was covered in blood. The walls were slashed by a knife. The furniture was destroyed. The whole place looked wrecked. No clues were found. Police could do nothing.
The resort town slowly grew deserted. The community around the area moved away. The case grew cold because nothing could be done. A ghost was blamed.
