Here is some footage from the upcoming sneak preview of the Halloween screening of “Lost Tapes” on Animal Planet. You can certainly see that the underlying theme in this show may be a violent one. Or is it one of confused realities and trickery?
The program is putting out this public relations blurb:
Rare and exclusive footage of a park ranger uncovering a vicious attack scene in the woods. The attacked man had chased (what he had thought was) “Bigfoot” through the woods just days earlier, capturing the animal on film for the first time ever.
Is “Lost Tapes” going to be another example of what you see is not really what you see?
The original allusion to me was that it was nonfiction, but I think someone slightly misinformed me. The trailer makes it look more like Blair Witch Horror meets Sasquatch Mountain. Is Animal Planet trying to give the SciFi Channel a run for its money?
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.
