Momo, short for "Missouri Monster", was one of the less well-known Bigfoot-like creatures that came to popularity especially during the 1970s, reason for that being that the Momo sightings were pretty much restricted to a small area of Missouri, were limited to a relatively short time span, and at least some of the legend has been revealed as a hoax. But hoax or not, Momo has become a part of local history, as even if the hard evidence is scarce at best, the hysteria the legend created was real - as was the money coming in from visiting tourists - real enough for legend hunters Lyle Blackburn (host) and Seth Breedlove (director) to investigate the legend further.

Which takes us to the other plane of Momo: The Missouri Monster: A 1970's B monster movie retelling of the facts, a film that was never released (actually though it's entirely newly shot material): Here three siblings (Amy Davies, William and Grayden Nance) who see the creature first and in their panic call their dad Edgar (Adam Duggan), who's too late to catch a glimpse of the creature but figures the kids' emotions are real enough to suggest this is not a prank but they have seen something - and so he starts to investigate, and soon finds out other poeple have seen the creature as well, and several dogs have gone missing - and the creature seems to like to eat dog. This causes a bit of a hysteria, then a boom in tourism, and ultimately Edgar and Chief Ward (Cliff Barackman) form a posse to hunt down and kill the creature ...

 

So ok, the film-within-a-film is a hoax and even takes huge liberties with Breedlove's own findings - but it's at the same time lovingly done and really looks like a 1970s forgotten monster gem ... and it also looks as if it was tons of fun to shoot! And the sometimes sensationalist details this film-within-a-film shows really work well with the very down-to-earth factual quality of the documentary, because as a filmmaker, Breedlove is not out to convince us of the existence of Momo, he just tries to present the facts as they are, even those that detract from the possible existence of the creature - and documentary and fiction combined make this one a fun ride.
