Grassmen of Ohio

Posted by: Loren Coleman on February 9th, 2010

But where are the Grasswomen?

Okay, maybe I should have warned you?  Alright, you’ve been warned. Warning the rest is on you. Hey, it’s important to support indies, right?

Do you get the feeling that every American non-PWM “Bigfoot” movie since 1975, has been trying to recapture the excitement of The Legend of Boggy Creek? Meanwhile, reality television on this one has taken a decidedly sleepy approach…in the past.

But watch out. This week, MonsterQuest takes on MOTHMAN!!

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.

    Yes, it is important to support independent film makers.

    The trailer wasn’t bad, the teaser was a little better……BUT…..can they sustain story line, tension, emotion, drama, and your attention over the course of a 90 minute+ film? THAT is the deciding factor on whether a film maker and film has what it takes.

    However, in my opinion, Paranormal Activity was subpar, yet it was widely released and grossed over $100M domestically.

    With the success of films like Blair Witch Project and Paranormal Activity (both of which I liked for a variety of reasons), we are going to see much more of this kind of grass-roots advertising for low budget indie films. It makes sense in this day and age, and market, where the big movie companies are only interested in the “summer blockbusters”, it will be grass roots advertising that will help sell some of these fringe movies–and of course, some of them will be good and some will suck boggy creek water.

    From the trailer, who knows…could be a waste–but if The LEgend of Boggy Creek tried to pick up a distributor in this day and age, it would almost certainly never get it, and would probably have been forced into this same kind of online advertising to get a following…or even knowledge that it was out there.

Sorry. Comments have been closed.
