If you’re a fan of cryptozoology, aliens, and general strange oddities that have gone unexplained, you’ll want to add On the Trail of UFOs: Dark Sky to your watchlist. Director Seth Breedlove returns to scope out many of West Virginia’s alleged series of sightings and supposedly supernatural activity, looking back into things like the legendary Flatwoods monster to energy spikes to the secretive men in black.
If you’ve watched the On the Trail of UFOs series or Breedlove’s previous work with collaborator and paranormal researcher Shannon Legro—including their Bigfoot films—then you probably have an idea of what to expect here. This well-made documentary will appeal to conspiracy theorists and just people fascinated by the topic at hand.
What makes On the Trail of UFOs: Dark Sky stand out is its focus on eyewitness accounts. A good portion of this new documentary is people discussing the things they’ve seen and experienced. It’s hard to argue with them when they talk about mysterious encounters and enigmatic beings only heard of in tall tales and whispers.
On the Trail of UFOs: Dark Sky explores often-overlooked areas of intrigue like the men in black
West Virginia has long been a source of intrigue and unexplainable activity, with stories stretching back centuries. Not only do Legro and Breedlove talk to the locals, but they do deep investigative dives into some of the most famed locations, such as “West Virginia’s Area 51” and the town of Davis. Small Town Monsters continues its dedication to well-researched, fascinating finds into some of the world’s most interesting mysteries.
I also appreciated that this particular documentary does address things like the men in black, which have been referenced in many alien documentaries and stories but usually not in any great depth. They also investigate the potential links between energy sources and UFOs while using CGI to make recreations. I was surprised how good the CGI looked. It’s enough to send a chill down your spine.
On the Trail of UFOs: Dark Sky will be available to purchase or rent on August 3 through multiple platforms, including iTunes, Amazon Prime Video, Vudu and FandangoNOW.
