The Mothman Prophecies

The Mothman Prophecies (2002) is about a supernatural entity that plagued a small West Virginia town back in the ’70s and is based on TRUE EVENTS. I believe all of this and more. Why? Because I’M DRUNK, man.

The Mothman Prophecies

A Washington, D.C. investigative journalist mysteriously ends up in Point Pleasant, VA where the residents have been reporting strange events and sightings of an eight-foot tall winged moth creature with glowing red eyes. One local guy in particular has been singled out by the Mothman and keeps calling him on the phone.

Richard Gere (the journalist), now drawn into the mystery, starts putting the glue to the clues. Seems Mothman is trying to tell him something as well – and that something is something terrible is gonna happen to Point Pleasant. (OK, bumpy sentence – see last sentence of the first paragraph.)

Where this starts to goon out your mind is when Mothman (referring to itself as Indrid Cold) is on the phone with Gere. The quick-thinking reporter records the conversation and sends the tape to a sound specialist who tells him that’s not a human voice, but more like an electro-magnetic pulse. If Mothman called me on the phone I would totally fill my pants with solid electro-magnetic pulses.

Speaking of, lots of cool eerie crap happens, which builds to a horrific climax that actually happened in real life. That event (Silver Bridge – built in 1928, unbuilt in 1967) is amazingly recreated and will make you think twice about visiting Point Pleasant or talking on the phone with Mothman.
