Do gargantuan, ship-crushing beasts stalk the seas? Does the legendary Sasquatch roam the forests of California? Giant fish, enormous birds, and swamp creatures - are they the stuff of reality, legend, or both?
From the lochs of Scotland to the forests of America’s Northwest comes Monsterquest, an eerily captivating new series airing on History, that sets out to uncover our most persistent and compelling creature stories.
On May 27, fans of the unknown will thrill to Monsterquest- Complete Season 1, featuring the first 13 episodes on 4 DVDs along with never-before-aired bonus content for a suggested retail price of $44.95.
Today, monsters are largely dismissed as mythical creatures borne of the terrified imaginations of men, but eyewitness accounts and tantalizing evidence still suggest to many that these fabulous creatures do exist. One part history, one part science and one part mythical beast, Monsterquest entertains, informs, and hopefully, uncovers the truth behind legendary monsters.
But searching for proof that these long-time members of the Cryptozoological Hall of Fame exist is no easy feat. Each episode of Monsterquest is a mini-expedition to a remote, far-flung corner of the world, where scientists use modern technologies like DNA testing and digital photo analysis to evaluate decades of physical and photographic evidence, while field researchers go on expeditions to search for the actual beasts. Bigfoot, aquatic dinosaurs, giant squids, mutant canines, man-eating cat-fish, and more will be investigated like never before, as History goes beyond the frequently studied, grainy archival footage and vague eyewitness accounts to analyze the intersection where fact meets legend.
Each of the spine-tingling episodes in Monsterquest- Complete Season 1 goes in search of some of the earth’s most mythical creatures, including: “Kraken: the Real Leviathon,” “Night of the Monkey Man,” “Stalin’s Planet of the Apes,” “Creature of Snellgrove Lake,” “China’s Lake Beast,” “Werewolf of Bray Road,” “Jurassic Fish Monsters,” “Creatures from the Fourth Dimension,” “America’s Loch Ness Monster,” “Man-Eating Birds,” “Giganto II,” “Bigfoot” and the “Hounds of Baskervilles.”
From pilots to policemen to ship captains, a number of seemingly credible people have seen things that simply can’t be explained. Decide for yourself with Monsterquest: The Complete First Season, as the search is on for the earth’s most elusive and mysterious monsters!
