The Man Called Cold The Woodrow Derenberger Interview


Indrid Cold

Indrid Cold (The Grinning Man) was thought to be an alien trying his best to gain the physical traits of a human.The uncanny valley is a hypothesis in the field of human aesthetics which holds that when human features look and move almost, but not exactly, like natural human beings. It causes a response of horror among some human observers. The "valley" refers to the dip in a graph of the comfort level of humans as subjects move toward a healthy, natural human likeness. Some think he is a part of the Men In Black.

First SightingEdit

Indrid Cold was first seen on October 16, 1966 when two boys in New Jersey were walking on Fourth Street, when they saw a surreal figure standing near a fence. As they walked closer, the figure was a tall bald man wearing a metal green suit who was staring right at them with a huge grin. The idiosyncratic man chased them until they got away from him.

Second SightingEdit

On November 2, 1966 in Parkersburg, West Virginia (around the same area and time period that the Mothman came about), Woodrow Derenberger was driving his way home until he heard a crash. Then, an extraterrestrial vehicle landed in front of his truck. The Grinning Man came out of the vehicle with a dark tan. The Grinning Man then walked up to Derenberger and telepathically told him that his name was "Indrid Cold" and that he meant no harm and he just wanted to know more about the human race.
