Halloween Premiere: Monsterquest

Posted by: Loren Coleman on October 25th, 2007


During the year, the crew from this show came to Maine, Texas, and a lot of other places across North America. Don’t be surprised if you see some familiar faces in this series, including people you know in the first mini-documentary ever about an all-women Bigfoot expedition.

Monsterquest, which debuts this fall, will take a scientific look at “creature” sightings around the world. History announced its 13-episode order for Monsterquest. There will be episodes on “monsters” such as Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, Swamp Beast and the Creature of Snellgrove Lake.

The series — described as one part history, one part science and one part monsters — is the latest addition to the network’s schedule under general manager Nancy Dubuc and the senior vice president of development and programming she recruited, Discovery Networks veteran David McKillop.

The History Channel


Wednesdays at 10pm/9c. Premieres October 31, 2007. (60 min.)

The program goes in search of monsters real, man-made, and imagined. Each episode is a mini-expedition to find and understand the monster – giant fish that menace swimmers in the Great Lakes, werewolves, man-eating birds and the super soldiers that Stalin’s scientists tried to engineer by crossing humans with apes. Eeek!

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.

  2. red_pill_junkie responds:

    Is this real, what appears on both the Bigfoot & Sasquatch promo videos (the rock throwing the film crews claim to have witnessed)? Or is it a mere “Blair Witch Project” promo scheme?

  3. cmgrace responds:

    I saw the previews for this show about a week ago and was wondering when it was going to be brought up here. I can’t wait. By the way what about that crypto-show on SciFi? Is it returning? Has anyone heard?

  4. cmgrace responds:

    OK nevermind I looked it up on SciFi. New shows start next spring.

  5. vulcanhalfbreed responds:

    Wow! Really exciting. I’m looking forward to the show. ^_^

  6. Cryptid Hunt responds:

    Recording every single episode!!!

  7. Rappy responds:

    As someone who lives close enough to swampland, I can agree that when something dies in the bayou and you don’t get to it in a little amount of time, you don’t find it. My land is near what was once Caddo land, and while you get the occassional rare arrowhead, you never see anything organic. I was taught as a kid to get any animal you killed fast or you’d lose it for good, and it is quite true. I have seen many armadillos, yet not once have I ever seen a dead body of one just laying around.

  8. scotsman responds:

    That seems like a really cool show, wish I could watch it 🙁 I should really get a huge satellite dish for my house so I can watch American TV channels, haha.

  9. Hawkeye responds:

    I will definately be watching this. It sounds like it could be a decent series. Hopefully it’ll be good enough for them to at least bring it back every year around Halloween

  10. brittney m responds:

    Yes, I’ve been watching it on youtube, it is very interesting.

  11. sierranighttide responds:
