“Secrets of the Shadow World”

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 1:08 am


In 1999, George Kuchar (right) made a video mini-series about John Keel (left).  It will be shown at the Anthology Film Archives in NYC on Saturday, April 17 at 5:30 and Sunday, April 18 at 8:00.  (Click on the link for the address and other useful info.)

George’s description of “Secrets of the Shadow World” is perhaps the most appropriate:

“Centering on the paranormal ideas of UFO author John Keel, this sprawling mini-series spans the four corners of tolerance as it delves into mysteries whispered about on national television and tacky talkfests worldwide.  Not simply about little green or gray beings from other planets, this video’s endless delving into a rainbow display of people and places tries to put the whole kit and kaboodle into perspective.  Proving that it’s not all a crock of crap but a cornucopia of corned beef and cabbage plus a ton of other culinary concoctions, the secrets that you will crack in this caloric overdose will split your trousers and expand both buttocks and cosmic consciousness at the same time.  And that time clocks in at about two hours and twenty minutes.  So prepare yourself for a three-course feast of triple-scooped treats.”

Let me add that this is your only chance to see John and George visit Mount Shasta.  And that the photo above is not from the video, but one of the snapshots from the trip.  Here are a couple more:

  4. Ingo loves to gossip, so I’m sure he focused on the misadventures of other people in the UFO and Fortean community.
