—Transcript of Interview—
Alejandro: Okay. So we’ve got an exclusive interview with Jeremy Corbell, we’re at a premiere of the movie. Of course, Open Minds listeners know who Jeremy is, and they know I’m a huge fan of your films-
Jeremy: Thanks, man.
Alejandro: … so this is really exciting, this has gotta be exciting for you.
Jeremy: This is, man. This is the premiere of Hunt for the Skinwalker, that film goes live on iTunes on September 11th for everybody to watch, but you and everybody gets to see today, really, the pre-premiere before it’s launched to the public. And man, this is an exciting movie, two hours and seven minutes, plus an hour and a half of bonus features. You have never seen footage from inside Skinwalker Ranch. This film shows you hours of it. During active investigations by the NIDS team. It’s incredible. So thanks to George Knapp and all the work that he’s done for over two decades, this movie is gonna show it to you. It’s gonna show all the goods.
Alejandro: So cool. So a couple of parts, cattle mutilations have happened on that ranch, there’s been UFO sightings, a lot of people feel that those are a type of phenomena related to aliens. Were there aliens at the ranch, you think?
Jeremy: Well, whatever is there certainly is alien to us. We don’t know for sure the nature of this reality. There seems to be something that’s been here longer than us, and recorded since the beginning of recorded human history. We see a pantheon of that at the ranch, it really, truly is like a paranormal Disneyland. And you might not believe it, or someone else might not believe it. They might dub it aliens or portholes or dimensional beings, I don’t know. Nobody knows. But the fact of the matter is yes, craft are visible there. Huge craft. Beings that we would call aliens, that are certainly alien to us, occur and interact, close encounters, with people not only on the ranch, but in the Uintah Basin. So look man, I don’t know what’s going on there. If I try to give you a theory it would be a guess. What I do now is that it’s worth and worthy of investigation, and that’s what this film is going to do, it’s going to light a fuse, man.
Alejandro: And it’s gonna show that the government felt it was worthy of investigation and spent millions of dollars doing that.
Jeremy: It’s gonna break the news, it’s gonna tell you in-depth the connection between the 22 million dollars from Harry Reid, that all began with Skinwalker Ranch, it was targeted and focused on Skinwalker Ranch. The majority of that funding went to Skinwalker Ranch. AATIP, what we were told through the New York Times, is a very small part of the bigger truth. And this film, with the bonus materials, will clarify that.
Alejandro: Last question is, with this film, what is your intent, what is your main goal, with getting this information out?
Jeremy: Alejandro, you know my main goal. That is to weaponize your curiosity, take you from being a passive observer and consumer to a participant. That’s it.
Alejandro: Thank you so much.
I completely believe there are unidentified objects in our skies and unexplained events happen every day. But, I am mystified how anyone can take ‘Hunt for the Skinwalker’ seriously. The book and film rely on apochryphal tales and grandiose statements that run counter to the scientific method and rules of evidence, therefore useless except to make money for interested parties. Do strange things happen on that land? I have no clue and neither does anyone else not involved. Cattle mutilations you say? How do we know if the owners of the ranch didn’t carve up those animals in an attempt to run up the price of the land? Eyewitness testimony is hearsay, nothing more. The book is very interesting up until the last third, when the wild theorizing begins, which unfortunately is carried over into the film. And on a technical note, the film becomes unwatchable in the last half hour as a deep bass hum has been added to the soundtrack that is quite irritating and it often muddies the spoken portions. There went $15 that could have been better spent. One is no better off watching this film than ‘Finding Bigfoot’ . Honestly, I’m surprised at Open Minds acceptance of this.
In attempting to see where you are coming from, I can understand your point of view if there were claims that the acquired scientific evidence, but there are not. The scientists have claimed they were not able to acquire scientific evidence and that the phenomenon seemed to be one step ahead of them. All of this can be taken seriously, because those involved have the credentials to be taken seriously, and now we come to find it was a government backed project. The fact that this was a government funded paranormal investigation, and details behind the real X-Files, makes it very newsworthy. Perhaps the most newsworthy story in the UFO/Paranormal world in decades, and this doc is a piece of that puzzle.
