Documentarian Ward Hiney and skeptical journalist Chad Christy have teamed up, along with Small Town Monsters, to chase down leads of dogman sightings in the Ohio Valley.


Stories of werewolves have drifted from European folklore into modern American pop culture, percolating in the subconscious of the populace for centuries. These tales often tell of terrifying, half-man/half-canid beings that roam the forests and fields after dark. Most think of them as little more than campfire stories meant to scare children, but for some, there is much more to this than mere mythology.


Now filmmaker Ward Hiney, leading Werewolves Unearthed, a new Small Town Monsters production, is set to lift the veil on the enigmatic “dogman” of North America.


A recent rash of werewolf sightings in western Pennsylvania has grabbed the attention of documentarian Ward Hiney. In order to get to the truth behind these ongoing encounters, he enlisted journalist and ardent skeptic Chad Christy in an effort to film their investigation, hoping to unravel the mysterious events unfolding in the Shenango Valley. As they spoke with witnesses and experts, a pattern emerged that might help establish what is behind ongoing sightings of werewolves in America’s Heartland.


Werewolves Unearthed is the first of a planned series from Small Town Monsters and director Ward Hiney. This first chapter acts as a companion piece to last year’s American Werewolves and the recently released The Dogman Triangle. Directed by Ward Hiney (Dark Holler) and produced by Seth Breedlove (On the Trail of Bigfoot, The Mothman of Point Pleasant) along with Small Town Media’s Courteney Swihart and Jason Utes.


The feature-length documentary will be available on Amazon Prime Video and YouTube on October 1, 2023. Following a TVOD release, Werewolves Unearthed will premiere on Tubi. A special 4K, ad-free version will also be available for subscribers of the  Small Town Monsters YouTube account.


Small Town Monsters is known for its documentaries that delve into monsters, the paranormal, and more, featuring titles such as On the Trail of Bigfoot: Land of the Missing and Bloodlines: The Jersey Devil Curse, just to name a few.
