The Dover Demon On TV

Because the writer is always the last to know, turns out I made my television debut on World’s Most Unexplained on the Travel Channel last night. Thank the fates that my friends watch these crazy shows all the time and they were quick to let me know!

Oy, look at that mug. I was filmed in a cramped hotel room in the height of the pandemic. Taking off my mask made me nervous as hell, which helped tamp down any butterflies I had about being on camera and interviewed by someone who was on a laptop in Ireland.

The episode is called Roadside Creature/Up in Flames. In the episode, I and several other Travel Channel mainstays talk about the very mysterious 2 night event in a bucolic Massachusetts town back in 1977. Several teenagers saw a bizarre creature on the dark, winding roads, all of them reporting basically the same odd being. Cryptozoologist Loren Coleman was there on the scene and coined the name, the Dover Demon.

I’m sure you can stream the show. Here is a one minute preview –

When I was with Loren at the International Cryptozoology Museum, we got to talking about the DD and I was hooked. Not long after, my fictional take on the cryptid with UFO connections was born. If you’d like to explore the Dover Demon and what it could mean for the people who witnessed it when it returns decades later, grab a copy and be prepared for some high strangeness!

    That’s awesome, Hunter!! Congrats! I haven’t seen the episode yet, but I’ll be hunting it down as soon as I’m free of this abysmal keyboard! You, sir, pardon me, Mr. Monster Man sir, are epic, and I’m stoked to see you gaining recognition on yet another platform.

    Tell the truth now, you were cast as Mr. Carter in the reboot of Welcome Back Carter, weren’t you? 🙂 ❤ 😀
