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.

Go to orginal reports not keels or others embellishments, if you still believe a 6 to 8 foot winged huminoid was seen okay then. For extra credit look up what it takes for a winded creature to fly, how much would a mothman weight? Now what size wings would that need to lift it? No, i dont buy that it has a jet nozzle for a butt or eats an all bean diet so it can fly by gas propulsion.

I have never- EVER- heard of the jet nozzle or bean diet theories.

You would be surprised at some c*** and bull theories about unproven creatures dreamed up by dear true believers.
