Horror Docudrama “MOMO: The Missouri Monster” Emerges September 20th

Wednesday, September 18, 2019 | News

Cryptid fans will want to clear their watching schedules on September 20th for MOMO: THE MISSOURI MONSTER, Seth Breedlove’s follow-up to his hit sasquatch doc, ON THE TRAIL OF BIGFOOT. The film will be available on DVD and various streaming platforms this Friday! 
From the press release:
“The latest title to crawl forth from the production powerhouse behind last year’s best-selling documentary ON THE TRAIL OF BIGFOOT, MOMO: THE MISSOURI MONSTER  seeks to tell the true, and truly strange story of the Missouri Monster. The hair-covered, three-toed monstrosity was said to have prowled the forests of Star Hill, near Louisiana, Missouri during the summer of 1972 where it was spotted by terrified citizens for weeks. The film will be available nationwide on DVD, as well as Vimeo OnDemand, Amazon Instant Video, and VIDI Space. 
The case gained national media attention during the ’70s and remains one of the largest tourist draws for the tiny town on the banks of the Mississippi River. 
The latest release from Small Town Monsters and director Seth Breedlove, MOMO: THE MISSOURI MONSTER is told in both narrative and documentary form. The narrative sections appear as a lost b-movie from the 1970s, inspired by Breedlove’s lifelong fascination with grindhouse movies and creature features. The horror film depicts the widely accepted details of the MOMO legend and is eventually contradicted and corrected by the actual survivors who lived through the events.”
Check out the trailer below, and be sure to give MOMO a prime spot on your watchlist when it stalks streaming platforms on September 20th.
