In the new Adventures Unlimited Catalogue there is mention of a strange “documentary” unknown to me. Has anyone seen this one? Is this for real?
Here is a scan from their flier:
I haven’t yet received my copy of The Bigfoot Filmography to discover if it is listed in there. (Dave Coleman has not heard of it either, as it turns out, and it is not in the forthcoming hardbound first edition of his opus.)
Just so there won’t be any doubt about what I think about this: I feel The Capture of the Yeti is a badly and hastily constructed fake film made to fill a gap in pseudodocumentary history, in the “tradition” of the “found footage” of The Blair Witch Project, the New Jersey discovered video, and so forth. However, as I have not seen this specific motion picture, have not bought it, and/or have not obtained it for review, I thought I would throw it out there to see if any Cryptomundian had actually viewed it. Apparently not.
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
