“Owlman” Prank

June 16th, 2014 by Cobwebs

As a child, Scottish filmmaker Lawrie Brewster was fascinated by the Owl Man, a Cornish cryptid who seems like a cross between the Moth Man and Slenderman. The Owl Man features in his new movie, Lord of Tears, and as a promotional stunt they dressed someone up in an Owl Man costume and sent him to lurk around a creepy, abandoned children’s hospital. “Urban explorers” venturing into the hospital to take photos or poke around found themselves confronted by the creature, and their reactions were caught by hidden cameras.

I’m trying to decide how I feel about this. On the one hand, if you’re wandering around an abandoned Victorian hospital it’s presumably with the intention of being mildly creeped out, and bingo! These people hit the jackpot.

On the other hand, I’m pretty sure that second guy is going to need therapy.

They’ve also done a couple of videos where the Owl Man shows up unexpected on ChatRoulette, here and here.

    I’m amused as hell by this but if it happened to me, I would be unamused.

    I probably shouldn’t have laughed as hard as I did considering I’d have been the second guy. Therapy it is!

    No. Just no.

    This appeals to me soooo much, (I guess it is the home haunter gene) but in Texas, someone would get shot.
