The Gable Film: The Anatomy of a Hoax

One of the more successful cryptid hoaxes of modern times was executed by Mike Agrusa, with the help of disc jockey Steve Cook. Using vintage equipment and vehicles and the legend of the Michigan Dogman as a backdrop, Agrusa created a period-perfect home movie that culminates in an attack by an unknown creature. He even followed it up with a second film documenting the gruesome aftermath. Cryptozoologists everywhere declared it proof but MonsterQuest revealed the hoax in 2010.
