Creature Feature Friday: ORANGE EYES

The phrase “orange eyes” makes an appearance in Episode 122: Secret Military Enochian Technology as a an eerie and unidentified pack of figures with orange eyes! Although today’s Creature Feature Friday is not the same type of strange entity (we just couldn’t pass up the show plug!), ORANGE EYES is still a creepy, formidable mystery. Check out these 5 details about the monster known as Orange Eyes:

1) The aptly named Orange Eyes is a rare, gigantic, orange-eyed hominid monster that has been spotted in Ohio several times since the late 1950s.

2) Bearing a likeness to an enormous Sasquatch, a number of eyewitnesses have reported seeing this 11-foot-tall ape-like creature, who weighs close to 1,000 pounds. Whatever he is, Orange Eyes is a big brute.

3) Much like the plot of a B-movie horror flick, Orange Eyes is believed to have originally lived under a cemetery, and began his reign of terror in 1959 when he attacked two teenagers who were cuddled up on Lover's Lane. (Yes, that is actually the name of the road in Ohio where Orange Eyes first appeared.)

4) Though he has remained a famous mystery for decades, Orange Eyes has not been glimpsed since 1991 when he scared the waders off a pair of anglers fishing near Willis Creek. Which is a good thing, because he sounds huge and terrifying.

5) Since every story has its skeptics, there are some who claim that Orange Eyes is, in fact, nothing more than a fanatical hermit living in the woods. To create the illusion of Orange Eyes, they surmise the hermit has a stick on which he’s nailed two orange bike reflectors, which he logically waves around as he runs through the trees. If that is in fact the case, then the hermit 1) has been successfully fooling locals with bike reflectors for over 50 years, and 2) really needs a new hobby; has he even heard of Fortnite?

NEWS: Finding Bigfoot by Boat: Portland to Offer Cryptid Cruises in Search of Sasquatch

If you’ve ever watched the show Finding Bigfoot, you may have noticed that the show technically never actually did find Bigfoot. (No riots please!) Through copious hours of camp outs, scenario recreations, and wood knocks, Bigfoot still remained at large.

But maybe the cryptid crew just wasn’t using the right method. Maybe they should have tried the unusual approach that cruise company Portland Spirit is launching this June: tracking Bigfoot for seven straight hours by BOAT!

The Oregon-based attraction will begin taking eager Bigfoot seekers on boat rides through Columbia River Gorge on June 15th. The trip will cover seven hours and 120 miles, all in search of the ever elusive creature! Also included in the aquatic adventure will be fascinating views of the Gorge’s other wildlife, scenes of Multnomah Falls and Portland’s bridges, and a stopover at a restaurant called The Locks Grill for “signature Bigfood bites”! (We haven’t decided yet if that pun is terrible or ingenious. Maybe it’s both.)

AND that’s not all: fans of Finding Bigfoot will be enthused to learn that video recordings of Bigfoot sightings and theories as told by one Cliff Barackman will be played for them for the entire seven hour trip! ‘“Bigfoot is the hide-and-seek champion of the world," writes Aaron Greene, Portland Spirit's marketing director, in a description of the cruise. "With the help of Cliff Barackman from, Animal Planet's Finding Bigfoot, we will try our best to find him."’

Anyone and everyone can enjoy the cryptid cruises through September of this year. And with a little bit of luck and the help of some driftwood knocks, perhaps one boatload of hopeful seekers will spy the Big guy on the shore… or - plot twist! - maybe they’ll discover that Bigfoot is actually aquatic and that’s why he’s been so hard to find! New working theory: Aquasquatch? Either way, the journey through picturesque Columbia River Gorge is sure to be memorable whether or not the hairy man/beast makes an appearance. Share your pictures - and evidence - with us if you make the voyage!
