Its creepy, but it is a fake.

It appears to be a ghoul from a forthcoming movie called Super 8.

Nice catch.

DNS is right. This is all part of a marketing campaign - clever to have released this through a hunting site though.

It could very likely be a promo stunt like BK partnering (I hate using that word as a verb) with movies to promote both...

And also look for a WGI game cam reference in the actual movie...

I'm not saying it is real, but ALL of the so-called explanations are just people speculating...
There is no PROOF of it either way...

I am a HUGE JJ Abrams fan, and I'm pretty sure this is an ad for his move "Super 8."

He released a lot of similar material for the movie Cloverfield.

I know one thing...

If I went and retrieved my camera from my favorite hunting spot and found something like that on there...I would not be going back.

This is supposed to debunk the whole story, but it is still not conclusive, unless you believe what the so-called experts tell you...

Yep, no proof, but by golly there isn't any reason to believe the image is authentic. It isn't like these tapetummed-eyed humanoids have a history of interpersonal conflict with IR capable game cameras.

The context of the story is dubious at best. Even if the owner of the camera is reporting what he found accurately, given that he didn't see what happened to his camera, it doesn't mean he isn't being hoaxed himself.

To date, there has been no conclusive evidence of bigfoot, space aliens, chupacabra, or any such other mythical creatures. I am just not inclined to believe that one would finally be caught on a game camera that was then summarily destroyed, but not so destroyed as to hurt the memory card inside.

I've gotten some pretty weird images of myself while retreiving the memory card from my cameras.

Nah, it looks more like part bear, part man pig.



It may not be part of Super 8, but I just hope it is!
That picture is creepy and I want Super 8 to scare the crap out of me.

Aristotle knew nothing of computers, CG animation, or game cameras.

I really want to believe and nothing would make me happier than proof that Bigfoot actually exists, but this is clearly fake.

Pretty good catch that this is from the Super 8 movie by the way.

Thinking.....

How may of you have friends with game cameras?

Just thinking.... an old gorilla mask and if you could walk around the camera from the back and just look directly in it.


Give them something the talk about.
