Of late, the so-called Men in Black have taken into custody many a blogger with an interest in cryptozoology for a bit of "questioning". And the gouvernment organisation behind the Men in Black also hires agend Lindsey (Joshua Harrington), a fired FBI agent with the mob on his tail, to head a top secret operation ... so what exactly has happened?

Well, two years ago, Dr Olzak (Jennifer Kazlo), head of same organisation, has lost one of the specimens she has created in her lab thanks to a nosy courier. The creature was assumed death, but now it's back. Sure, it's small, but it's also nearly indestructible, likes to eat humans, and eats 8 times its weight at one go. And worst of all, the creature is pretty clever.

Agend Lindsey has all the hi-tech equipment of Dr Olzak's organisation to capture (not kill) the creature, and yet, during his first mission, the creature takes out his entire team and still manages to make a clean getaway. Sure, it leaves a path of destruction behind, but is also small enough to escape from wherever pretty much undetected. But as mentioned, the creature's pretty clever, and eventually, it turns the tables and tracks down agend Lindsey ...


Cryptid might not exactly be the next Citizen Kane, but it's a fun creature feature that has plenty of suspense and gore but also humour in all the right spots, that has got an endearing creature at its center and an enjoyably tongue-in-cheek formulaic plot as its framework. Director Micheal Kazlo II once stated he wanted to pay hommage to vintage Charles Band movies with Cryptid, and it clearly shows.

In other words, maybe not the brainiest of all (genre-)movies but good genre fun!
