Synopsis by Sally Barber
Originally produced for television, the video series Secrets of the Unknown invites you into the world of the bizarre, strange, and unusual. From ninjas who are said to transform into panthers, to the peculiar myths and rituals surrounding King Tut's tomb, to Hitler's occult connections, these documentaries provide a rich visual showcase for unexplained phenomena and natural disasters. The program Secrets of the Unknown: Volcanoes examines the fiery force some call "messengers from hell." Highlights include footage of the 1980 eruption of Mt. St. Helens, which blasted the northern face from the mountain and affected earth's climate for three years. Actor Edward Mulhare, known for his role in The Ghost and Mrs. Muir, hosts this in-depth look at the power of nature's fury.
