- The mythical beast of the Northwoods attracts the attention of a Canadian documentary group and they want you to be a part of their film! The documentary is called 'Boogeymen'. Cameraman Sebatstien Iannuzzi says it's about small towns who adopt monsters like the Hodag for their mascot."We've been to Point Pleasant, WV, where there was this Mothman and Adams, TN, there's this Bell-witch, and in Rhinelander, WI, there's this Hodag. So everytime we go in to those small cities, those creatures, well they are kind of a boogeyman for the small locals."
The film crew will see an actual unveiling of the Hodag like Gene Shepard did during the first Oneida County Fair, and they want you there to be a part of it according to Jerry Shidell!"Well during the re-enactment we are going to show people the Hodag. So if you want to see a real, live, Hodag, the great Black Hodag, the original Hodag, this is your chance to come and see the real Hodag." Shidell says everyone is invited to the unveiling that will happen tomorrow morning at 11 in Rhinelander at Pioneer Park.
