Storyline

Chupacabra, Wampus Beast, Wolfman, Mothman and Grassman - with a distinctive landscape of woods, lakes and valleys, the Appalachian Mountains are a hotbed for mysterious creature sightings. The leading researchers of these shadowy figures are The Appalachian Investigators of Mysterious Sightings (AIMS). The team, founded by John "Trapper" Tice, is skilled in hunting and tracking using both traditional techniques and modern technology. Their mission is to interview witnesses, investigate the scene of the encounter, and eventually capture the creature... or prove its non-existence. Written by Jiilo_Kim

"Hillbillys in a Haunted House"
25 November 2013 | by grizzledgeezerSee all my reviews

...is the title of a real movie. This program is not far removed.

I often find myself defending Appalachians. Most descend from Scots/Irish settlers, so one can reasonably assume they're intelligent. (If you ignore the twang, you'll hear that most use good grammar, pronounce words correctly, and have a solid vocabulary.) This program, unfortunately, makes me think I should abandon my defense.

Even allowing for the fact that humans are, in general, irrationally credulous, how much of this are we supposed to believe? The Devil Dog episode is plausible (though I question the existence of coyote packs -- coyotes are generally solitary). The Wolf-Man episode is maybe, kinda, sorta believable -- if one accepts the possibility of a wolf with an excess of growth hormone.

The Moth Man and Lizard Demon episodes are beyond ludicrous. Thinking you saw something doesn't mean you saw what you thought you saw. I'm particularly bothered by the Lizard Demon's footprint, which looks fake. //All// the footprints look fake -- as if they'd been carefully crafted and pressed //just so// into the dirt.

As with "Porter Ridge", the best part of the show is the cast -- some of whom are drop-dead handsome (Willy, especially).

To summarize, I can only say... "Give a man a fish, and he'll eat for a day. Give a man a thermal-imaging camera, and he'll turn it into a profitable TV series."
