New Mothman Movie Coming Out

Ooooo...talk about synchronicity.....
During my month long hiatus (sorry about that by the way) I watched "The Mothman Prophecies" with Richard Gere finally.
Okay, it's very different from the book, but it was interesting just the same.
Well today I find out that there is a new documentary called "Dark Wings: The Mothman Chronicle", directed by Charles McCracken.
In the documentary, they recreate the Mothman using CGI.
You can see a lot more about the film at their website here:

And you can see the trailer here:

Mothman has interested me since I first read about him back in the 70s in John Keel's book.
Keel has some interesting theories on paranormal phenomena and I really enjoyed the book.
I may not agree with everything, but I always like contrasting opinions.

One thing I find interesting is that Point Pleasant isn't the only place Mothman has allegedly turned up.
There were even reports of a similar creature before the Chernobyl disaster.
And there have been reports that a Mothman like creature was seen in Mexico before the outbreak of the Swine Flu.
And I have seen at least one theory that the creature is really the Garuda, a large mythical bird or bird-like creature that appears in Hindu and Buddhist mythology.
The book's original title was "The Year of the Garuda".
