SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 22, 2018--Today FanX® Salt Lake Comic Convention™ ( and The Orchard announced the world premiere of Hunt For The Skinwalker, a documentary that will show for the first time ever the unbelievable truth about paranormal activity that the Government doesn’t want you to know. The premiere begins at 7:00 pm on Thursday, September 6, 2018 and is free with the price of admission to FanX 2018.

Based on the best-selling book by George Knapp and Dr. Colm Kelleher, investigates the confidential, most extensive scientific study of a paranormal hotspot in human history. Skinwalker Ranch in Utah is famous throughout the world because of the myriad of frightening, seemingly supernatural events that have been reported in the scenic basin surrounding the property for hundreds of years. Sightings include orbs, UFOs, animal mutilations, unknown creatures, poltergeist-type activity, and many other inexplicable incidents.

An exhaustive, multidisciplinary scientific study began in 1996, spearheaded by an enigmatic Las Vegas billionaire. A team of PhD-level investigators was deployed to collect evidence and spent more than a decade on the ground, interviewing witnesses, searching for explanations, and directly confronting an unknown intelligence. What was encountered during these studies would test the belief and reason of all involved.

“The Skinwalker Ranch in Utah is like the Area 51 of the paranormal. So many things have happened on the property that have not been made public, until now,” said Jeremy Corbell, Investigative Filmmaker and Director of Hunt for The Skinwalker. “The Government doesn’t want you to know that the Pentagon and various intelligence agencies have been investigating encounters with the paranormal at the Skinwalker Ranch. These paranormal encounters were being evaluated for their threat to national security and the government gave the program more than $20 million for its work. This is the unbelievable true story of Skinwalker Ranch.”

The movie features official Department of Defense released video from December 2017, exclusive interviews with the owner of Skinwalker Ranch, investigative journalists and residents and neighbors of the ranch. The movie stars Dr. Colm Kelleher, Robbie Williams, George Knapp, Jeremy Corbell, Dr. Eric Davis, Dr. John B. Alexander and Mark Allin.
