    Does anyone here know this show from Animal Planet? It deals with different peoples storys of their encounter with many criptid creatures in a manner like The Blair Witch Project.

    This series to me is one of the MOST scariest shows I've ever encounterd in a long time since Goosebumps and Are you afraid of the Dark? Just the way they handle it is creepy enough!:eek: 

    So what are your thoughts on this series?

    I continually lament the lack of crystal clear cryptid footage.

    Wasn't that the whole point of the show though? I mean it trys to give you a sense of dread because it relied more on surprises. The Blair Witch Project didn't have the witch in full view either and even than it was still scary! It gives the idea of the uncertainty of if the creatures in the show really do live among us.

    I tried watching once thinking it was a documentary, or something along those lines. I was disappointed to find it was just dramatized storytelling. Cool for some, just not for me.

    Like turboedguy, I was disappointed at first, but it grew on me because it was so scary. I watched Paranormal Activity and it has nothing on this.

    Yeah the episode that freaked me out the most was the one about the poltergeist. Man was the ending for that episode scary!:eek:

    I don't usually like these outright fictional shows on what are supposed to be science/documentary channels.

    That and it's normally got substandard FX and shoddy acting.

    And then they just go whole-hog supernatural as opposed to cryptids that "might" be real. But werewolves and skinwalkers? May as well watch Sanctuary.

    I love monsters and cryptids are one of them and this show was good on the suspense department. Some episodes were good some were not, but I enjoy watching it.

    I thought it was fun, but it never really scared me. Gave me a chuckle, when sasquatch killed the bear poacher.

    Its a fun show. The plots are often stupid, but still enjoyable. I dont find it very scary. Its actualy a bit funny in my opionion.

    It's fun. Not that great, but fun. I like what they do with some creatures, like the Zombies or the Vampire.

    Heh, I find it entertaining and try to catch it when it's on, but that shit can be creepy as hell imo. Out of the ones I've seen/remember, I thought the vampire episode was the creepiest. :S

    Though I thought the one they did on the Owlman was absolutely hilarious.
