Did You Know?


Pishtacos are fat-eating creatures rarely seen in the United States. They are similiar to vampires, but feed only on human fat. They survive entirely upon it, and seem to possess a great hunger for it. Unlike vampires, which are regarded by the Pishtacos as killers, Pishtacos are more like parasites and do not hunt down their prey to feed. However, some Pishtacos do hunt humans for their fat. Just like most other monsters they look completely human, but their eyes roll back and reveal an elongated sucking appendage that they release from their mouth when they feed. See more »


The topography in Stillwater, MN is pretty flat, unlike the hill behind the motel, and there are no mountains two hours from Stillwater as can be seen while the Impala is seen driving to the spa. See more »

The Sam-Dean Conundrum
5 February 2014 | by insideout098See all my reviews

The troubling relationship between Sam and Dean is beginning to overshadow everything else. Fundamentally, the writers have set up a no-win situation where the brothers have completely different value systems, making their issues impossible to reconcile. Frankly, Sam is coming across as whiny and self-righteous. Suggesting, as he does, that Dean should have allowed him to die instead of saving him "for purely personal reasons" really put me off. Dean saved him NOT because he didn't want "to be alone," as Sam states, but because it's what Dean does: Saves people who are close to him. The fact that Sam wouldn't do the same sets up an impossible quandary. At what point are you guys going to give Sam the insight to understand and appreciate what it means to love a family member so much that you would do anything to save them? What? Are you trying to make the argument that Dean is narcissistic and that losing his brother is like losing a prized possession? Give it up and get Sam back on board.
