Storyline

Based on the best-selling book by George Knapp and Dr. Colm Kelleher, Hunt for The Skinwalker is a documentary about the most intensive scientific study of a "paranormal" hotspot in human history. Skinwalker Ranch is now famous throughout the world. For hundreds of years, myriad of frightening, seemingly paranormal events have been reported in the scenic basin surrounding the ranch, including orbs, UFOs, animal mutilations, unknown creatures, poltergeist-type activity, and many other inexplicable incidents. Shrouded in mystery, an exhaustive multidisciplinary scientific study was initiated and spearheaded by enigmatic aerospace mogul, Robert Bigelow. A team of PhD level scientists was deployed. The scientists and their investigators spent several years on the ground, interviewing witnesses, searching for explanations, and directly confronting an unknown intelligence. Recent headlines have revealed that a second publicly funded paranormal study was initiated by the Defense Intelligence... Written by Jeremy Kenyon Lockyer Corbell

The Archive Footage Makes It Worth Seeing
17 September 2018 | by BountyOfVolesSee all my reviews

Skinwalker Ranch is an incredibly interesting topic worthy of a feature documentary. Unfortunately Hunt For The Skinwalker is a very disappointing, disjointed, and flawed attempt.

The archive footage and interviews with George Knapp are, for the most part, excellent. Anyone familiar with Knapp's work should know what to expect, and it is incredibly disappointing that relatively little of this film is made up of the video footage.

Outside of this? The director has a fascination with the most mundane aspects of the area surrounding Skinwalker Ranch: UFOs. And while UFOs may be of interest to a lot of people, the fact there are much more interesting and strange recorded aspects entirely ignored in the newer footage really lets it down.

Another thing that lets the film down is the direction and editing. The simple lack of awareness to even consider a better mic on his camera is the least of his problems. He is overstated in wanting to present himself as more than he is when he could have shown himself as a better director if he simply constructed an 80 minute film from the aforementioned archive footage. Reiterating the points made by Knapp and the archive footage repeatedly after every scene made an already badly paced and poorly edited documentary into an outright slog.

Also, Robbie Williams turns up. So there's that for anyone who wants to change some lyrics to reflect the sinister occurences, because seeing Stoke's own Robbie as a possible skinwalker is...great. 'It's time to move cows' bodies' etc.
