The Grinning Man, sometimes referred to as Indrid Cold, is an entity first spotted in the 1960s in New Jersey. He is sometimes connected to UFO sightings and the cryptid Mothman, and is believed to be an extra/ultraterrestrial being.
The Grinning Man is uniformly described as a tall man, wearing a shiny metallic-like set of green overalls, bearing a wide grin and beady eyes. Disturbingly, witnesses described that The Grinning Man had no visible ears or nose. The entity’s skin is described as being tan or greenish. One witness also stated that The Grinning Man was wearing a black belt.
There are several explanations as to what the creature could be. Theories include:
- Ultraterrestrial (keel)
- A demonic entity
- A normal-but-creepy human being
- Mass hysteria
