Folklore Thursday. Although not dedicated exclusively to monsters, it’s still one of the most fabulous websites out there:

Top 5s. This fascinating website is devoted to – take a wild guess – compiling the top 5 incidences of things such as ghost photographs, werewolves, you name it.

Plus check out their Youtube channel – the gentleman who narrates the videos has one of the best narrative techniques I’ve ever heard. One last thing – be prepared to lose a couple of hours out of your day when you visit here.
