The reviews are pouring in, after the first broadcast. What do you think?
“This movie is horrible from start to finish…,” said Ritualistic at Night of the Liberal Dead.
A “creature feature” that is “more horror and less sci-fi,” notes R. J. Carter. The reviewer warns, “if you’re expecting something based upon those mysterious creature sightings in West Virginia that have cryptozoologists scratching their heads, you’ll only be minimally satisfied with this Sheldon Wilson directed offering, as it shoehorns that historical event into this hodgepodge of other horror film conventions.”
“Final Analysis: Jewel Staite (my favorite cast member from FIREFLY) + my favorite cryptid + a blind man who is nevertheless a crack shot with a shotgun = a fairly decent two hours. However, take that fairly decent two hours and add an incredibly dull supporting cast, a goofy design for aforementioned favorite cryptid, and random supernatural butterflies and you get something that’s slightly less than decent,” writes Bill in the Radiation-Scarred Reviews.
“This one is worth watching, folks. Seriously,” says Sensual Lovers.
But what do you think?
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading. 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.
