Product Description

For as long as humans have walked this planet, we have been haunted by tales of mysterious winged beasts. Who is Mothman? Do Thunderbeings really exist? Is Mexico home to an unidentified Birdman? The Animal X - Natural Mystery Unit travels to Point Pleasant in the USA, where residents are still haunted by unexplained sightings of a mysterious winged creature they ve called Mothman. In the 1960 s they watched in disbelief as this beast chased speeding cars and leapt onto the roofs of tall buildings. Daniel and Natalie investigate the legend of the Thunderbird and talk with the Passamaquoddy tribe of Native Americans. Can their medicine men really transform themselves into giant winged Thunderbeings? They then travel to Mexico, where as recently as 2003, multiple sightings of winged humanoids were making headlines. Will the Animal X - Natural Mystery Unit solve the riddle of these winged creatures? Was there a government conspiracy to cover-up Mothman? How much of this mystery is real and how much folklore is behind the sightings of large winged creatures that are said to inhabit our skies?

Format: DVD
"Animal X" was an Australian TV series with some kind of cult status. I never bothered watching the original, but "Animal X: Natural Mystery Unit" is apparently a U.S.-oriented version of the same show, albeit still with Australians on the cast.

The concept is simple: Bill Kerr a.k.a. the Mission Controller sends out two young investigators, David and Nathalie, to investigate alleged sightings of Bigfoot, ghosts, aliens and other paranormal creatures. Kerr tries to make it all seem spookier than it actually is, while Dave and Nat turn out to be singularly non-charismatic. Not even the disco beat in the background can save the day. But sure, if you are well-disposed towards shows of this kind, I suppose you could get *something* out of it, at the very least a good laugh!

In "Winged Creatures", the team visits Point Pleasant, West Virginia and a town in Maine weirdly called...wait for it...Pleasant Point. Jungian sync? They also make a trip to Mexico. Then, it's back to another part of Maine to meet the dean of cryptozoology, Loren Coleman for some kind of closure. The mission? To find some explanation for the bizarre winged humanoids reported from various parts of North America. Of these, Mothman of Point Pleasant is arguably the best known, mostly due to John Keel's classical blockbuster "The Mothman Prophecies". One of the original eye witnesses, Linda Scarberry, claims to have seen both winged humanoids and transparent Men in Black. Scarberry reports that Keel told her that the MIBs wanted to kidnap her child, since five women in Point Pleasant became pregnant simultaneously after the Mothman encounters?!

Some sceptics have attempted to explain away Mothman as a barn owl (sounds familiar?), but Coleman can do better.
