The US heartland, namely Illinois, has for some reason been the source of many sightings of large flying creatures, from the "Chicago Mothman" in recent years, to the sightings of big, maybe animal-snatching birds in Lawndale in the 1970, back to the "Piasa Bird" of Alton, based on Native American mythology but brought to prominence in the 1830s. What all these sightings have in common is that there's no actual proof for any of them, giving all the more way for speculation, so cryptozoologists have come up with all sorts of explanations, from geographically misplaced Andean condors to pterodactyls having outlived their time, to actual mythical monsters ...

 

Now to make a level-headed documentary about crypto-zoologist phenomena is pretty difficult, as the lack of solid evidence usually throws a spanner into the works - but Terror in the Skies really does a very good job, by simply putting its focus not on giving answers but presenting the evidence, and then going into vastly different directions to find possible explanations, without favouring one over the other. Why this works then is because it allows each audience member to come to their own conclusions, making them decide which speculations they choose to agree with or if they even want to believe. But whatever each viewer decides to come up with, the film delivers a solid backbone by presenting the facts as tangible or untangible as they might be, rather free of interpretations. And sequences that go into the fields of narrative and atmospheric cinema add meat to the bones rather than push the film into one direction or the other.

Safe to say, if you're not a believer the film won't make you one - but it's really good at presenting a bunch of urban legends (in lack of a better term) in a very informative yet entertaining way.
