Last night History channel debuted a new program called Cryptid: The Swamp Beast. And if they paid someone to do it, that would cost a lot of money — most likely more than pest removers living in a poor area of the country, which is what Louisiana is, have to spend. I spend time in the bayou down near Du Large, Du Lac and Cocodrie and i can tell you many of the stories out there about the cryptids. The local animal control team thinks a large predator is responsible, but when a hiker goes missing and a corpse is decapitated, many of the townsfolk believe a legendary swamp creature might be to blame. For that purpose it is a good show with exciting plot points and fairly good acting. You can look her up on imdb.
None of this adds up for me. I think legends and folklore add intrigue to our lives. In addition to that many of the events are unrealistic in the way the actors react. In a remote southern town, the past few years have brought a dramatic uptick in strange occurrences, but now, whatever has been lurking in the swamps is intruding into human territory. My cousin plays the part of the Cemetery groundskeeper in the first episode.
Summary: In every region of America, there are legends of strange, unidentified creatures that stretch back for centuries. Down south in the swamplands it's no different, where some of the most deep-rooted and fearsome monster stories have endured. How hard was that to find? The local animal control team thinks a large predator is responsible, but when a hiker goes missing and a corpse is decapitated, many of the townsfolk believe a legendary swamp creature might be to blame. This is done in an attempt to put enough information together to prove many of the eyewitness accounts or to find other plausible explanations. Sorry about the long message. Being a resident in Louisiana and growing up here, with Cajun French relatives, I know just about everything there is to know about Louisiana, past and present. This particular show capitalizes on the current curiosity that many people are experiencing when it comes to subject matter that involves individual members in the show trying to either prove or disprove the existence of something.
The series follows a small animal-control business that responds to various calls and sightings and a deputy sheriff who believes the real culprit is some twisted individual deep in the swamp. They seem to be themselves just playing along with the show. It is a scripted story and nothing about it is real, except perhaps for some of the people they interviewed who seemed to be sincere about the experiences they had. With the attacks not matching up forensically with any known predators, suspicions are spreading. Folklore experts, biologists and original news clips play throughout each episode as well to add further real-world context.
The show also tries to gather as much information as possible from each of the locations that it visits. Folklore experts, biologists and original news clips play throughout each episode as well to add further real-world context. Watching the episodes thus far my hubby and I can pick out where quite a number of the scenes have been shot right down to their B reel Voodoo snippets and interior shots. I guess I should thank the History Channel and the creators of that awful show for my new healthy diet. In this particular case people are trying to prove whether or not the swamp beast actually exists. I recommend contacting History Channel directly and airing your thoughts with them. .
His name is Edward A Chambers, a New Orleans actor, and he told me that he met and interviewed the real groundskeeper who did in fact find the grave broken into and the skull was missing. With the attacks not matching up forensically with any known predators, suspicions have spread. It reminds me of when the X-Files came out. At that time the show was so new, nobody knew a lot about it. I think most of us just enjoy hearing about these legends and seeing another way of life.
Seven months later and I still remember. In Lake Champlain, locals have sworn up and down to seeing a strange, prehistoric-like creature in the water. But the show also features actual eyewitness interviews and experts weighing in throughout the dramatization that give the series real-world context. In the northwest, many credible people swear to have sighted Bigfoot. I am a native of Louisiana and I really enjoy watching this show. Behind The Curtain As much as I enjoyed it, I had a strange feeling that there was something scripted about the show.
There have been a rash of cattle mutilations and pets are being snatched away from backyards. Not just ghosts has been proven or disproven. Despite it being a cast of actors re-enacting such, I enjoy it. Listen — the Louisiana swap has alligators, snakes, spiders, mosquitoes the size of Volkswagen Bugs, and weather conditions that can kill you dead. There is a team of individuals that are followed to various locations by cameras that film their every move. Sure some of the locals seemed genuine and their body language as they told their stories supported the truth of their tales.
I watched along with many others with great excitement. If only I could have found the remote faster. By the way, the show sucks and when you endorse such trash, you give no validity to this site or the cause of finding cryptids. Born and raised in Cajun Country. Dave, I, CryptoVille, am in no way affiliated with the show. For those of you that are trying to debunk this as a hoax, just come on over to Louisiana and we will take you on a swamp tour. The one gets pulled up into the air and drops his cell phone.
As the weeks pass, the sightings intensify and even the most skeptical people in town begin to wonder if its darkest legends, and their worst fears, have in fact come to life. You can clearly tell they are acting; some of them are not very convincing. Growing up near swamps we see things in nature that are hard to explain.
