The Worm Monster – fact or faked?

A group of experts from the TV program Fact or faked came to Iceland last spring. They did research the location where Hjortur Kjerulf shot his footage in February and tried to make things moving in the water there just like the “monster” on the footage. But they also went out to the big Lagarfljot lake in hunt for the worm monster. The episode can now been seen on the web.
