In the first of a two-part survey, Peter Hassall discusses some of the weirdest byways in cinema history, looking for feature films - including some bona fide classics - in which genuinely anomalous phenomena such as UFOs, ghosts or monsters have allegedly been accidentally caught on film.

A famous woodcut from Nuremberg has often been adduced as evidence of a major early UFO sighting. Ulrich Magin takes a closer look at this misunderstood image and offers an alternative explanation.

44 The Otherkin
What happens if, one day, it starts to dawn on you that rather than being a humdrum human being you are, in fact, an elf, or a unicorn, or even a chupacabra? Emma McNeil shines a light on the incredibly strange creatures who stopped being people and became mixed-up monsters...

48 The Specimens of Alex CF
Tim Weinberg visits an unusual collection devoted to the study and documentation of unclassified non-human species... and meets its even more unusual curator.
