Reviews about Small Town Monsters: Minerva Monster

Small Town Monsters: Minerva Monster
cookin' nut
Not only was this a bad documentary, but it didn't play properly

Not only was this a bad documentary, but it didn't play properly. Sound stayed on, but video kept switching the the slide show of Amazon Fire stick. I'd like my money back but don't know how to lodge a complaint.

Small Town Monsters: Minerva Monster

Dull as dirt

Pretty boring drawn out doc about one of these group-hysteria (or group-hoax -- take your pick) monster sightings in the 70s. There's not much to say, so it's heavily padded with fairly uninteresting background history of the town.

I loved it!

I thought it was a good documentary of the incidents in Minerva. I would definitely recommend it to other people.

Highly enjoyable

Well told documentary- treating the subject and witnesses with a respectful eye. The extras at the end of the DVD only enhance the story.
