Sheepsquatch (Breckenridge County, KY) – The border between southwest Virginia and West Virginia is an area shrouded in mystery and folklore, but few mysteries are more unusual and intriguing than that of the Appalachian white beast known to the locals as Sheepsquatch. Dakota Cheeks and his best friend Ricky Joyce become prey to the legendary white beast during a weekend hunting trip.

UFO/Little Green Men (Kelly and Hopkinsville, KY) – One quiet summer evening in 1955, the Sutton family farm is invaded by unexpected visitors. The family is hardly prepared for what they encounter – a small, green creature with glowing yellow eyes, about 3.5 feet tall with pointed ears and long arms raised high in the air. And he’s not alone. At first, the family is captivated by this transcendental moment… but evil quickly takes over.

Mothman (Point Pleasant, WV) – An innocent drive down a country road turns into a nightmare for Faye LaPort and her siblings as they come face to face with the legendary Mothman. Sightings of the Mothman began in 1966 and continued for more than a year, electrifying and baffling the entire region of Point Pleasant, West Virginia. Although the hype has died down since then, the sightings have not.

    With all due respect to those terrified by the monster, I just can’t say the word “Sheepsquatch” without laughing.

  2. Rob008 responds:

    Not a bad show. I thought the Sheepsquatch part was a bit overboard. Sheepquatch! Seriously! Were they not allowed to say goatman? I thought it kind of silly watching those two geek boys walking down the road with machetes trying to look like Van Helsing. The little green men was OK, the recreations were not accurate. They had large mouths, not tiny ones. The mothman was good.

    I watched this on demand last night and can say I am glad I fell asleep when it originally aired Sunday evening. It had about all the investigative skill of that one show that put kids and teenagers out with video cameras to investigate paranormal/crypto legends.

    We’ve all heard about Mothman and I remember reading something in a Ripley’s book when I was a kid about the little-green-men beseiged farmhouse but Sheepsquatch?

    You really want us to believe there’s a Wampa-like creature meandering the hill country of Kentucky?

    About the only thing Destination America got right in that first episode was perpetuating the stereotype of some Appalachia folk as very eccentric.
