The 2005 book, Hunt for the Skinwalker: Science Confronts the Unexplained at a Remote Ranch in Utah, told the story of an in-depth scientific investigation conducted by Robert Bigelow‘s National Institute of Discovery Science (NIDS) at Skinwalker Ranch–an area ripe with all sorts of paranormal activity ranging from UFO sightings and animal mutilations to bigfoot sightings and ghost encounters. One of the book’s authors, investigative journalist George Knapp, amassed a wealth of material during the time NIDS investigated the ranch, including 30-40 hours of video material that the public has never seen. But that might change soon.

Investigative filmmaker Jeremy Corbell launched a website called Hunt the Skinwalker with a goal to “use both the scientific and journalistic models to, in effect, Hunt the Skinwalker – that is, to explore, investigate, document, and report any incidents, events, and encounters involving a wide range of unusual or unexplained phenomena; to explore hypotheses, and to engage with other researchers, scientists, journalists and eyewitnesses.” At the core of the site will be a documentary series.

Here is the trailer for Hunt the Skinwalker:
