The Bray Road Beast is a documentary film from 2018 that explores the urban legend of a werewolf-like creature that is said to roam the rural areas of Wisconsin. The film is directed by Seth Breedlove and produced by Small Town Monsters. The documentary introduces the audience to the legend of the Bray Road Beast and how it originated in the small town of Elkhorn, Wisconsin in the early 1990s. The sightings of the creature were initially dismissed as mere hoaxes or misidentification of known wildlife such as coyotes or wolves. However, as the number of sightings grew, so did the curiosity and fear of the town's residents.

The film features interviews with various eyewitnesses, cryptozoologists, and cultural experts including Lyle Blackburn and Linda S. Godfrey. Lyle Blackburn is a musician, author, and cryptozoologist known for his work on the legend of the Beast of Boggy Creek. Linda S. Godfrey is a journalist and author who has extensively researched and written about the Bray Road Beast and other cryptids.

The documentary takes a unique approach to the subject by exploring the cultural significance of folklore and the role it plays in shaping our perceptions of the paranormal. It delves into the history of werewolf legends and how they have been interpreted throughout different eras and cultures.

The film also examines the possible explanations for the Bray Road Beast sightings, including psychological factors such as mass hysteria, as well as the existence of an actual cryptid. The interviews with eyewitnesses are especially chilling, as they recount their encounters with the creature and the intense fear and uncertainty it evokes in them.

One particularly interesting aspect of the documentary is its examination of the media's role in perpetuating the legend of the Bray Road Beast. The film points out how sensationalized news reports and fictionalized depictions of the creature in movies and TV shows have contributed to the growth of the legend and the perception of the creature as a real threat.

The Bray Road Beast also features stunning cinematography of the rural Wisconsin landscape, which adds to the eerie atmosphere of the film. The music, composed by Brandon Dalo, is also haunting and perfectly complements the tone of the documentary.

Overall, The Bray Road Beast is a fascinating exploration of the cultural significance of folklore and the impact it can have on our perceptions of the paranormal.
