I thought McCasland's TAILYPO was pretty nifty. I've never heard of the legend before (odd since I don't live all that far from the Northern-most part of Appalachia), and I think it lends itself well to a short film format.
I enjoyed this little fourteen minute movie, and my only gripe is that the filmmakers didn't have the money to create a more convincing creature. But don't take that as a condemnation of TAILYPO: It's well made and something spooky you can share with your kids!
Watch the video below, and see what happens when a poor hunter and his dog run afoul of the mythical Tailypo!
