Beast of Whitehall
August, 1976: Three teens driving on an isolated stretch of road somewhere in the Adirondacks of Upstate New York have a brush with a bizarre creature. Standing over 7 feet tall and covered in hair, they referred to it as a beast. Hours later, Abair Road was crawling with local and state police. Many of them recounted seeing the creature, as well.
As the weeks and months passed more individuals came forward with their own sightings. The Abair Incident became the impetus for a rash of sightings around the town of Whitehall that continue to this day. Today, Whitehall is frequently referred to as the Bigfoot Capitol of the East Coast.
Beast of Whitehall documents the long history of sightings in and around the tiny village of Whitehall, New York, and its impact on the culture and people who live in the Adirondack mountains. Delving into the story of the Abair Incident with eyewitness interviews and detailed accounts, this film takes you on an in-depth, terrifying journey into the events that transpired in 1976.
The film is directed by Seth Breedlove with a soundtrack composed by Brandon Dalo.
The DVD includes over 70 minutes of special features including extended interviews with witnesses, and a behind the scenes featurette that documents the making of Beast of Whitehall.
