Mysterious shadows. Screams in the night. A hair-raising sense that something is watching. Stories of the unknown capture our imagination and curiosity in Destination America's new series "MONSTERS AND MYSTERIES IN AMERICA", premiering Sunday, March 24 at 10 PM E/P. From all across the country emerge tales of close encounters with legendary creatures, from horrific monsters and ancient spirits to alien sightings and unexplained paranormal phenomena. Thirty percent of Americans believe that a beast such as Bigfoot is living in our forests*; in a quaint Montana town, reports of an elusive lake serpent have persisted every year since 1889; last year, UFO sightings were reported in 36 of 50 states in one week alone.** Featuring first-person accounts with everyday people who believe they have come face to face with real-life folktale fiends, "MONSTERS AND MYSTERIES IN AMERICA" travels our country's untamed wilderness to tell of its storied past. Each episode focuses on a different American region and features stories of people who claim to have encountered creatures of local legend. (Source: Destination America)
