Lost Tapes Begins Sept. 29

Posted by: Loren Coleman on September 29th, 2009

Here is the Lost Tapes schedule. The thriller mockumentary/documelodrama series screens on Animal Planet. The programs begin with the premiere of the new season on 9.29.2009:

09/29 – Double premiere: “Vampire” & “Lizard Man”
10/06 – “Southern Sasquatch”

11/10 – “Alien”
11/17 – “Bear Lake Monster”
11/24 – “Dover Demon”

The half-hour segments are usually cryptofiction in nature, although you can see from above which ones are not. The segments have a horror-science fiction appeal to them, and they are broken up with interviews of actual experts, such as Loren Coleman, during the factoid nuggets.

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.

  1. Drosselmeyer responds:

    Meh, I watched the first episode when it aired and it wasn’t very entertaining. Sort of like Blair Witch Project with less scares, more fake blood, and monsters you never get a good look at.

    Cool cover for the DVD, though. Definately evidence of the elusive bearsquatch.

  2. Hambone responds:

    Was not impressed. Stories were unreal.

  3. MountDesertIslander responds:

    If “Destination Truth” or “MonsterQuest” frustrate you, stay far far away from “Lost Tapes.” I really think this kind of show does a disservice to people looking to establish credibility to the pursuit of fortean creatures and the paranormal.

    Blair Witch Project without the drama is a good way to describe this waste of effort.

    Read a book instead.

  4. Alligator responds:

    The most entertaining and interesting part of the premier was Loren’s comments about the actual Lizardman reports. Other than than that I found little of interest.

  5. AlbertaSasquatch responds:

    I hate to admit this but I find Lost Tapes quite entertaining. First of all, right off the bat they tell you this is simply a story INSPIRED by cryptozoological creatures(in most cases). If they were trying to pass them off as real videos that would be one thing, but they are not. Plus they have interviews with people such as Loren and other professionals. I like them but I have noticed that a large number of people do not.

  6. shimmeringsoul responds:

    I think the show’s a waste of time. I’ve forced myself to watch more than one episode in an attempt to make myself like it since it does have some cryptozoological points and credible speakers, like Loren, but all the movement just makes my head hurt…a lot!

  7. cryptidsrus responds:

    It’s an OK show. Nothing more, nothing less.

    It IS good in that it DOES introduce people to cryptids they may have never heard about before. I’ve watched several episodes, but that is it.

  8. cryptidsrus responds:

    Good production values, though.

  9. Ulysses responds:

    It’s hard to watch unless you are a hard core crypto fan and every so oftern find interesting tidbits to add to the lore and legend of the issue at hand. Once a week it too often for this show but maybe once a month. if you can take the bad acting , would be OK.

  10. truthisoutthere responds:

    I personally enjoyed how the Vampire managed to kill the grown man
    but the ever alert child seemed to escape 3 attacks from his assaliant.
