What Made Those Sounds?

Posted by: Loren Coleman on January 28th, 2010

Turn up the volume.

What animals were used in making the audio in this film?

They just don’t make G trailers like that anymore!!

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.

    The trailer’s narrator sounds like Wink Martindale.

  2. WolfGirl responds:

    It sort of sounds like a cross between a hog and some sort of big cat? I really have no idea

  3. BelieveInZombies responds:

    Don’t know. But, Fran Walsh did the Nazgûl screech for the LOTR movies.

  4. hudgeliberal responds:

    One of the great 70’s films that hooked an entire generation of “squatchaholics”.

    This is one of those Hollywood situations that I really hate, they have a sound that is overlayed by other sounds so it’s very difficult to know which is which.

    That being said, and knowing how stories grow and how much people love getting attention (and paychecks for a good story), I would say this is a large Russian razorback boar, a beast in it’s own right and not to be trifled with.

    I had what would have been a great Aunt, had she survived being eaten by a herd of them, the only thing left were a few clothes and her doll.

    I think if you were to amplify the volume and add a few overlays of non indigenous animals you could easily make this little Hollywood tripe.

    I don’t like this type thing because there are people who are out there doing real work everyday, slogging through the mud doing the hard stuff, taking notes and moving science forward bit by bit and getting no credit what so ever.

    To me, they are the real heroes.

    pig + distorted yell of a gorilla.

  7. Valen responds:

    I don’t know what it actually was, but it was in my head on every camping trip I took for the next 10 years.

  8. indyDonna responds:

    It sounds to me like big cat and whale song. I must be the only person on earth who hasn’t seen this movie BTW. LOL
