"We had an incredible encounter with what locals call the wood ape, which is in the Ozark Mountains," he claimed. "I'm fully aware that I sound like a crazy, Hollywood kook right now."

Lowe said the encounter was terrifying.

"I was lying on the ground thinking I was going to be killed," he recalled.

"Nothing is staged, nothing is trick-cut — no B.S. I believe there are probably ghosts out there," he said.
