New Mothman documentary arrives on Oct 20th

Who - or what - was the Mothman ? Image Credit: Small Town Monsters
'The Mothman Legacy' is set to lift the lid once more on one of the most chilling urban legends in US history.
Described as a human-like entity with wings and glowing red eyes, Mothman gained prominence after it was sighted multiple times in and around Point Pleasant, West Virginia from 1966 to 1967.

The first reported sighting occurred in November 1966 when five men who were digging a grave in a local cemetery described seeing a strange figure swooping over the trees overhead.

The creature was seen again only a few days later when two couples driving through the area picked up the terrifying sight of a human-like shape with glowing red eyes illuminated by their headlights.

As time went on, more and more people reporting seeing the creature. When 46 people died in the collapse of the Silver Bridge in December 1967, Mothman came to be associated with the disaster.
The phenomenon was later described by John Keel in his 1975 book The Mothman Prophecies.

Now a new documentary directed by Seth Breedlove aims to shed new light on the enigma.

"Many believe the Mothman (a red-eyed, winged demonic beast) is a harbinger of doom (famous sightings occurred right before the Silver Bridge collapse in 1967)," the synopsis reads.

"What if the origins of this omen trace back much further and go much deeper than anyone realized? And what if... the sightings never ended?

The documentary, which will be initially available to purchase digitally, can be found - here.

I don't think the government had anything to do with it. But I do know there was an uprise in MIB and UFO encounters in West Virginia while the Mothman phenomena was happening. I don't think it's a natural animal

I watched a few of the videos...and did a search for the one you suggested but couldn't find it.  He seems like a true believer who analyses videos but lets his want for things to be real outshine the more likely/mundane explanation of things.

Yeah, the video I was talking about was a analysis of the Patterson Gimlin film, and he got into camera stuff.   Hopefully you can find it. I found it interesting

Chronus, did you read john keels book or you watched the silly movie with richard gere? ( btw, i love the movie, total fiction but i dig it ) The 4 "kids" in a car out joy riding claimed to see what they described as this... Except for the size its a great likeness to an angry owl, Mothman wouldnt be much more than a tall tale told by kids out partying if not for an eccentric beatnik writer who became its spin doctor, keel spring boarded and fueled the embellishment and bandwagon effect, if not for keel mothman would be in par with dover demon. Keel himself called mothman "folklore in the maki... [More]
