Lost Tapes is my favorite Animal Planet show. It tells stories of alleged creatures disputed by science with first person accounts in realistic settings. It is entertaining, but you don't often get a good look at the creatures. That is why I didn't give this season a five star rating. That was changed in Season 2. The shows producers upped the scare factor in the second season that is currently airing. I can't wait for that to come out on DVD. The first season does contain some good stories and I love the diversity of the casts and locales. The set contains two DVDs with seven episodes on each and some deleted scenes.
Disc 1 contains:
Monster of Monterrey
Disc 2 contains:
My favorites include Bigfoot, Death Raptor and the Swamp Creature.Read more ›
I enjoyed watching the first season, but I would not recommend it to anyone but those truly into cryptozoology; and if one is "technologically spoiled" and must have the best of sets, effects, and all that goes with big budget productions; then this particular collection would not be a good fit for you! Perhaps the later seasons are a bit better on the production side?
According to Animal Planet, these episodes are based on the "possibility that these creatures exist." For example, there is a legend of Sasquatch roaming around parts of the US. Animal Planet's writers think of a way that "somebody" might come into contact with the creature if it existed. Then the writers determine what would be a feasible way that the animal would be captured on film if it "did" come into contact with somebody. The combination of this setting and a reason for it being filmed generates the 15 minute episode. The fact that the entire event is fictitious is not the real problem. The problem is that the level of acting varies from good to mediocre without ever being great. Most episodes are quite cheesy. Some of them never even show the creature in question. The camera becomes shaky, the actor drops the camera, and then you see them being dragged out of the view of the camera. If this were a student film, I'd say it was a very clever concept for a low budget venture into filmmaking. After spending $20, however, I'm not impressed enough by these works of fiction to say that I felt my money was well spent.Read more ›

I'd heard a lot about this series but it didn't live up to the hype. Bottom of the barrel found footage with horrible acting. There's definitely a lot better choices in the genre.Published 3 months ago by Randy Keith Hughes
