Updates from The Small Town Monsters crew themselves will come soon! They will be joining us here on iNTO THE FRAY.
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”.
Now, a film has been made about the Abair Incident. The studio behind indie hit, Minerva Monster, has
set out to tell the Whitehall story as it never has been before. Featuring interviews with witnesses and
local figures, Beast of Whitehall highlights one of the single most important stories in Bigfoot lore.
On October 1st you’ll be able to get a small taste of what to expect from the film when the team at Small
Town Monsters unleashes the official Beast of Whitehall teaser trailer. To accompany the release of the
trailer, the film’s director, Seth Breedlove, and its producer (and score composer) Brandon Dalo, can be found
speaking about this on the SasWhat podcast discussing the making of the film and a little about the history
behind the story.
