In August of 1978 a small town in eastern Ohio was thrust into the spotlight when a local family sighted a "monster" in the woods behind their home. Over subsequent evenings they were repeatedly visited by the creature culminating in a late-night encounter that ended in local police being called in. The story blasted onto the front pages of newspapers across the state and into the consciousness of a nation. For weeks, police, news crews, and scores of hunters descended on the town of Minerva with one common goal; to find the beast. In the midst of this hurricane of activity stood the Cayton family. Their call to local police spurred a media frenzy that continued for years and brought them unwanted attention and ridicule. In time, their story was forgotten and lost to time. Now, nearly 36 years later, the Minerva Monster will be unveiled once again.

Minerva is a small town in Ohio, which is about seventy miles south of Cleveland. In 1978 there were a large number of encounters with an unknown creature that was stalking the woods. This documentary from Seth Bleedlove interviews a few of the witnesses as well as a police officer who was working that area.
This here is the third monster documentary that I've seen from the director and this here is probably the weakest. That's not to say this isn't slightly entertaining to monster buffs but there's no question that it's just not fully entertaining. The biggest problem with the film is that it's pretty much just standard witness testimony and none of the stories are overly exciting or really pack much of a punch. If you're a Bigfoot fan you'll at least want to hear the stories but there's just nothing too engrossing here.
