Hoax? Creepy Pic Claims to Show Strange Creature in Louisiana Woods

Daily Mail:

If you go down to the woods tonight… you probably won’t believe your eyes.

Because judging by footage from a hunting firm’s website, this crouching phantom looks like Spider-Man has swung on to the set of the Blair Witch Project.

A deer hunter in the U.S. posted a video said to feature the creature on the Wildgame Innovations website – and the piercing white eyes aren’t the sort you would want to meet on a dark night.

The hunter, who has chosen to remain anonymous, was so frightened he said he broke the camera but retrieved the image from its undamaged memory chip.

The picture was taken on a reserve in Berwick near Morgan City, Louisiana.

Skeptics will quickly give credence to this report from MovieWeb:

More disturbing images have crept up on the Internet today in regards to J.J. Abrams‘s sci-fi thriller Super 8. No real plot details have been revealed at this time, but we do know that the story will gleefully nod to the past works of Steven Spielberg, primarily the science fiction movies he made in the late 70s and early 80s.

Last Friday, a piece of concept art claiming to reveal an alien monster from the project started making the rounds. It has yet to be verified. Now, a strange photo has come forward, which is purported to be from Super 8. It first appeared on Wildgame Innovation‘s Facebook page. It is a picture reportedly snapped by a deer hunter on a reserve in Berwick, near Morgan City, Louisianna. It was originally being passed off as real, but now inside sources close to the production say its actually a viral image from Super 8.

If it is viral marketing, it’s working, even MSNBC is talking about the picture:

MovieWeb also notes:

There is even video from a young Weirton, West Virginia extra called “Crying Girl”, who talks about having a run in with this creature in the movie.

In the scene, the little girl in question is said to be trapped on an airplane with her mother, where she comes in contact with this scary creature, which the young actress refers to as “a zombie”.
