According to Algonquian folkore, the Wendigo is a terrifying, emaciated monster with glowing red eyes and decaying skin - like it has just crawled out of a shallow grave. But, while it is certainly physically imposing, the true danger of the Wendigo lies in the effect that it can have on the mind.

This week we tell a collection of Wendigo tales.

The Jersey Devil | Episode 11 | Simply Strange

In 1735, deep in the pine forests of New Jersey, Mrs. Leeds gave birth to her thirteenth child. As the legend goes, mere moments after being born the cursed child underwent a dreadful transformation, growing horns and wings, before unleashing it's fury on everyone in the room. After it's victims were sufficiently maimed, the abominable creature launched itself up and out the chimney, disappearing into the woods, where some say it remains to this day.

Skinwalker Ranch | Episode 9 | Simply Strange

In 1994, the Sherman family purchased a stunning piece of property in northeast Utah. Unbeknownst to them, their new home had a history of strange phenomena dating all the way back to the 1700s, the local Native American tribe believed the land was cursed, and the previous owners lived with four ferocious guard dogs and deadbolts on every door. The Shermans' lives were about to be turned upside by forces beyond any of our comprehension - at least, that's what they think happened.
