Mysteries from Beyond Earth (1975)
Director: George Gale
Narrator: Lawrence Dobkin
Weird Phenomena Documentaries...while always an exciting prospect at the Hex, there is always a bit pf apprehension prior to first screenings. The flood of these films at the height of the genre's popularity in the mid-70s lead to what some would call a large, gaping fissure in quality control. This is why we are proud to bring you Mysteries from Beyond Earth. This one stands out from the chaff--the sheer number of topics it covers prevents it from ever dragging on a technical level...but it also approaches all the subjects at hand with an earnest seriousness and appreciation. TV character actor extraordinaire Lawrence Dobkin (who also took a stab at Pontius Pilate with In Search of Historic Jesus) hosts the piece with a gravitas that makes you feel like you are part of a 2am gentleman's debate of the topics in the study with 25 year old Scotch and Cuban cigars. Telepathy & Psychokinesis, Bigfoot to Black Masses, UFOs & Atlantis, Kirlian Photography, Cloning, Cryonics...and that's just the beginning of this awesome film. Are we indeed the new Atlantis?
