Minerva Monster makes the News Again

The Minerva Monster movie made by Small Town Monsters is going to premiere at the Ohio Bigfoot Conference on May 16th. I've posted about it a few times before, and it has made its way into several news articles. Seth Breedlove originally came up with the idea to write a series of books on Small Town Monsters, but after being rejected by multiple publishers teamed up with filmmakers, and they are now working on the Small Town Monsters documentaries, the first of which is Minerva Monster. According to the article, Breedlove is already planning a second documentary about another Ohio Monster.

For those who don't know, the "Minerva Monster" was a Bigfoot that was seen near Minerva, Ohio, in 1978. The first sightings occurred when Evelyn Cayton and family saw a hairy, man-like figure outside of their house in late August. On the 20th, the Bigfoot came up to the house and looked in the window. The Cayton's had guns but weren't really afraid; Evelyn felt that it wanted to be friends. You can see more on the history of the Minerva Monster on Bigfoot Encounters, or in Mysterious America or Legend of the Grassman.  I also discuss the sightings in my book Cryptid U.S., which is currently in the publishing process. I hope to have it out sometime this spring.

You can see the news article on the documentary here.

You can watch the trailer for the documentary below.
