    ★★★

    Breedlove continues to produce pretty good Cryptid documentaries; production-value-wise, this is one of his best efforts yet, though the tale doesn't quite live up to the hype he and his crew try to build around it. I guess nothing can ever top his Mothman documentary for me, though this is ooky-spooky enough to be worth a watch; maybe I just don't care about werewolves as much as I care about giant moth-bird men from outer space.
