The Monster Quest crew experienced an unusual incident at a remote fishing cabin near Snelgrove Lake, Canada. A member of the audio crew had a rock thrown at his head from the woods (see video). Another mysterious rock hit the roof of the cabin, as did a wooden log, the crew member noted. About the occurrence Jeff Meldrum said, "Obviously, there's nothing in the woods, that's recognized anyway, that can lob rocks in that fashion" (see video).

In the first hour, author Brad Matsen discussed his research into how and why Titanic sank so quickly. According to Matsen, the ship did not rise high out of the water before the hull broke as depicted in James Cameron's blockbuster film. Instead, Titanic sat relatively level in the water, Matsen said, then suddenly broke in the middle and was gone within four minutes. A key piece of supporting evidence was the bending pattern in a fragment of the ship's steel found by noted divers, John Chatterton and Richie Kohler. Matsen believes the builders made compromises in the construction of Titanic that likely caused its demise, and even tried to cover it up to avoid negligence claims by survivors and families of those lost that fateful night.Ian also spoke briefly with Richie Kohler during the first part of the second hour about his 2005 expedition to Titanic's wreckage.

As a sneak peek into the spooky October issue of After Dark, we present excerpts from Maureen Hennessy's look at the nefarious creature known as the chupacabra:
There have been many sightings in Michigan, including the report of a 42-year-old man who said he saw the creature suck the blood of a cat.

Among his assertions is that chupacabras, called Anomalous Biological Entities (ABEs), resulted from government or al
