What happened in Point Pleasant, West Virginia, in 1966-67? That remains one of the great questions of Forteana, with reports of the legendary ‘Mothman‘ and sightings of lights in the sky being, followed by the disaster of the Silver Bridge collapse, in which 46 residents died. The mystery was the subject of a best-selling book by John Keel, The Mothman Prophecies, which was later made into a film of the same name.
And now, a new documentary, The Mothman of Point Pleasant, takes another look at the mystery. The feature is part of an independent film series, Small Town Monsters, “that explores lost and bizarre history around the United States”.
Learn the terrifying, true story about thirteen months that changed history! In November of 1966 a car full of kids encountered a creature unlike anything they’d ever seen before. In the weeks and months to follow, the monster (now known as The Mothman) was sighted again and again on country roads and around the state of West Virginia. As the sightings continued so did an increase in unusual activity.
At the center of this bizarre series of events was the town of Point Pleasant, WV. A small burb situated on the banks of the Ohio river with a lengthy history of what many might call bad luck. Over the next thirteen months Point Pleasant would undergo one of the strangest outbreaks of paranormal activity the world has ever seen. An outbreak that eventually ended in tragedy.
