i hope its more fact than anything. for example i thought the lost tapes was real but found out its not :/

I don't understand what you're talking about here.  The post you responded to was about the next season of 'Supernatural', a t.v. show.  I don't know anything about lost tapes and, while the show does try to approach the actual folklore of the monster of the week, tradition  generally gets sacrificed to story-telling in an adventure show.  It's really not about 'facts'.

I think I know what blackwolf696 meant. Are you referring to the "Lost Tapes" show from Animal Planet? Never seen it, only heard of it.

As for "Supernatural", it's what Absent said: it's very much a fictional television show. However, at least the first season (the only one I've seen, meep!) they do provide a lot of information about actual supernatural beings. It's just in the context of a fictional story. For example, I learned about Wendigos because of the show, and they reference something I remember from my childhood, Bloody Mary.

yeah the lost tapes show on animal planet. i did learn from that show that wendigos are believed to either be demons or inter-dimensional beast. also one theory is that they are really the beasts that reside inside us all. they resort to cannibalism, animalistic in nature and very brutal. awsome things to study tho :)
REFUSE! RESIST!
