When it comes to American lake monsters one of the first to come to mind is Champ of Lake Champlain.
There have been reports of the elusive cryptid for centuries but they reached their peak in the 1970s with the release of the Mansi Photo. Now filmmaker Aleksandar Petakov and Small Town Monsters will take us into the search for Champ with their upcoming mini-series. The new series called “On the Trail of… Champ” will examine the legend of the creature and the ongoing search to prove it exists. The show is the start of a new ongoing monster documentary series from Small Town Monsters titled “On the Trail of…” covering various cryptids and more. According to STM’s the Champ show will premiere on DVD and the VIDI Space streaming platform on June 15th before being available on Amazon.
The six-to-eight episode mini-series follows Petakov who was on and around the lake during one of the most well-funded Champ searches in history that took place during summer and fall last year. In June we will get a first-hand look at the massive search and it may just change some minds about the possible existence of such a creature. We get a bit of a sneak peek into the series via a couple of trailers which are included below. There are some very interesting Champ Sightings and reports from witnesses and information from renowned Champ researchers like Katy Elizabeth. There have already been some very interesting pieces of potential Champ evidence collected over the years and hopefully, this latest project has found even more. We also hope to get some 2018 Champ sightings to go along with this new show! You can get more information about this and other Small Town Monster projects on their website here.
