A Creature Feature Follows The Formula

We stumbled upon a hidden gem in the horror genre, Cryptid. Released on VOD on January 3rd, the indie movie offers a unique blend of thrills, monstrous chaos, and a touch of campiness.

Cryptid tells the story of a small town in Maine where a resident is brutally attacked by a mysterious animal. While officials blame it on a bear attack, freelance journalist Max Frome suspects otherwise. Written and directed by Brad Rego, the film features a talented cast including Nicholas Baroudi, Ellen Adair, Chopper Bernet, Kevin O’Rourke, Eric Gilde, Kate MacCluggage, and Jeanine Bartel, and Emme Burchardt as the creature.

The movie has made the festival rounds and has won several awards, including the Best of the Fest/Best Narrative Feature at the Adirondack Film festival and the Best Director award at Shockfest last year.
