Not real.

A made up monster like vampires, werewolves and gill men.

The idea about demons is actually less than 2500 years old. The name was stolen from benevolent Greek pet spirits. Also make belief.

So the idea of demons has only been around for less then 3 million years?

I think something like it is probably real from the quality of first-hand reports. I think it is in the realm of shape-shifters with a human plus animal spirit.

Well here is the film that started this story, personally I believe it is a hoax, but that is just my opinion.

Hypertrichosis

I figure some of these stories may have a sliver of proof.

Yeah. I've seen a few documentaries on the condition. 

I (possibly incorrectly) assumed OP was more referring to the cryptid stories.

But I agree that it may have a grain of truth that the condition may have inspired some folklore.

Algonquian tribes have "Wolf Shaman" who wore movable masks make from their skulls, acted as "spiritual policemen". They were a secret society which settlers and trappers caught glimpses of. Hence the legend was born.

Soooo... the narrator explains how they can improve the quality of the original film, and demonstrates it on the footage of the car. 

... but then does not use this technique on any of the footage of the monster ?

Same thing. I was trained as one but my "aspect" is a mountain lion. I don't practice though. 

Nothing supernatural, just a street magic contortionist puppet show.
