On October 20th, 1091 Pictures released The Mothman Legacy, a documentary on one of the most frightening American urban myths. Today, Dread Central is thrilled to share an exclusive clip from the film. Give it a spin below the trailer and synopsis.
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). 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 Mothman Legacy is directed by Seth Breedlove; you can pre-order the documentary now, HERE.
The Mothman Legacy is based on the novel written by parapsychologist and Fortean author John Keel. As the final chapter in Seth Breedlove’s Mothman trilogy; it’ss a follow-up to Terrors in The Skies and a direct sequel to the 2017 documentary The Mothman of Pleasant Point.
The Mothman Legacy is the story of one of the most frightening American urban myths, the legend of The Mothman, a red-eyed creature seen by some as a harbinger of doom in 1960s rural West Virginia, where sightings of the winged demonic beast were first documented near an old munitions dump known by locals as TNT.
Many believe the Mothman to be a 1960’s phenomenon, an omen only appearing before tragedy, and disappearing after a flap of sightings and the subsequent Silver Bridge collapse in 1967. But what if there’s more? 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?
A case study on the roots of a modern myth the film features interviews with witnesses of the Mothman, and commentary from experts, authors, and locals, The Mothman Legacy gives a fresh take on the terrifying legend of The Mothman creature and the encounters that plagued Point Pleasant VA.
