The Mysterious Monsters

Posted by: Dave Coleman on April 25th, 2013

Here’s one of the more well-remembered moments of cryptid terror from the 1976 effort ‘The Mysterious Monsters.’ Peter Graves narrates for Rod Serling, who died before producers could record him expanding the CBS documentary that was re-edited and expanded into the feature.

Angry hominids shoving their arms through windows and then standing just outside the door when you throw it open to ‘see what’s outside’ is a very common visual motif from this era. No kiddin’!

    that scene is stamped in my head – one of the scariest things I ever saw as a kid.

    Yeah, that scene scared the crap out of me when I was six and saw it on a commercial. Every time I saw the commercial start after that, I would hide behind the chair til it was done. It did spark a lifelong interest in crypto, though.

    This scene is one of the all-time highlights of my childhood as well. I got to see it in the theater way back when, which was a big deal back then.

    It has held up very well, seeing it again and comparing it to what I remember.

    I didn’t sleep next to windows for years thanks to that scene.
