Remember the "Cryptid" comic book? Now there’s going to be a movie. According to the IMDb:

Gruesome murders of South African farmers spur reports of a possible "cryptid" – a creature previously discovered by science. The worldwide news coverage of the gruesome murder attracts an international team of scientists to the remote area which is considered by some to be the "cradle of civilization".

Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
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.

    While it bears the same name as the CRYPTID comic book, this film is not in any way connected to it. The comic is still being separately developed as a feature film and video game.

  2. joe levit responds:

    The body copy posted here says “reports of a possible “cryptid” – a creature previously discovered by science.”

    Shouldn’t that be “previously undiscovered?”

  3. Loren Coleman responds:

    Maybe someone linked to the publicity for the movie will read this, and correct their copy that is posted at IMDb.

  4. Tobar responds:

    Haha, the Cryptid looks like a Weequay from Star Wars. =P

    OK, I admit I’m in a headache-riddled and snarky mood today, but I don’t see anything in the above that gives me confidence this movie will be better than “Zaat – The Walking Catfish.” (There – I just dated myself considerably.)

    Darrell Micheal (a pseudonym for two guys, one of them being Sellers, according to has exactly one indy film to his/their credit. James Drydon appears to have NO previous credits, and Sellers is credited as a writer on some direct-to-video schlock. The presence of only one minor “name” performer (Lori Petty) screams “low budget.”

    On more promising stuff – I loved the preview issue of the comic. When will it start appearing regularly?

    B-movie to DVD bargain bin.
