Planet Weird has released a trailer for their latest documentary series Hellier and will make you rethink camping in the Appalachians. From Goblins, to UFOS, to the tease of something more treacherous, Hellier promises a paranormal exploration over five documented episodes.
Real life X-Files investigators Greg and Dana Newkirk will be releasing their series on January 18th at 12:01 AM ET on Amazon Prime, Vimeo, YouTube and hellier.tv. The best part is, the entire five-part series will be made available free to watch!
A five-part, cinematic documentary series following an investigation into unsolved mysteries, impossible synchronicities, and a web of high strangeness which stretches from the heart of Appalachian coal country. Driven by a plea for help from a man under supernatural assault, a small crew of paranormal researchers find themselves in a dying coal town, where a series of strange coincidences leads them to a decades-old mystery with far-reaching implications.
Aided by reluctant locals, cutting-edge parapsychological methods, and a trail of breadcrumbs left by occultists and UFO researchers decades before, the investigators uncover a mystery with frightening and far-reaching implications: the phenomena is bigger than Hellier, and someone – or something – has noticed them.
Greg and Dana Newkirk shared details on the doc via their official Facebook page, saying that “We’re changing the way paranormal television is made, and we’re starting with Hellier, a five-part series about unsolved mysteries, UFO sightings, and high strangeness in the heart of coal country.” Hopefully this will be the first of many Planet Weird Docuseries.
Hellier is directed by Karl Pfeiffer and stars Planet Weird’s creators Greg and Dana Newkirk. Connor Randall is signed on as co-producer.
