Although the legends of the Shadowman or Shadow Beings are examples of modern folklore, it is interesting to see how these legends originate and evolve with time. With the Shadowman/Hatman legends, it likely started from an episode from the fictional t.v. series, The Twilight Zone and now has grown to be associated with aliens and Satan. Listen to paranormal researcher Heidi Hollis speak of her beliefs in the Shadowman/Hatman as well as the stories she relates about people who have confided in her their own encounters. Hollis was the first person to author a book on the subject of the Shadowman/Hatman, titled The Secret War: The Heavens Speak Of The Battle in 2001.
