Weird Alien Creature Filmed By Security Camera

You never know what a security camera might capture. Many people use theirs to ward off porch pirates and other would-be thieves, but the cameras have also filmed plenty of other things like bizarre behavior, meltdowns, animal attacks, insults, cheaters, and a woman giving birth. There are even cases of cameras catching an "alien abduction" and a UFO. Well now, one security cam seems to have had its own close encounter, filming an alien-like creature walking along a Kentucky driveway.

According to the original poster of the video, it was shot outside of a cabin in the Red River Gorge area. It shows a human-like figure creeping along the property. Douglas Windsor McLoney III, who shared the footage, explained, "It doesn’t move like a human. It moves almost like its knee caps are backward. Reminds me of 'Smeagle' of Lord of the Rings."

No one is quite sure of what is shown in the clip, but commenters have some guesses. Skeptics think it is just someone planning to rob the cars parked in the driveway, while others are calling it a hoax. Believers on the other hand think it might be a "rake," a monster referenced in folklore that is described as human-like. The "rake" attacks people for unknown reasons and causes victims great psychological trauma.
