New documentary to investigate Mothman

'Terror in the Skies' will explore stories of strange winged creatures in the US including the legendary Mothman.
Over the years there have been countless reports from across the United States of gargoyles, giant bats, pterodactyls, thunderbirds, flying humanoids and other mysterious winged creatures which continue to defy explanation.

Perhaps the best known of these is 'Mothman' - a winged humanoid that gained prominence after it was sighted multiple times in the Point Pleasant area over a two year period from 1966 to 1967.

Described as a human-like entity with wings and glowing red eyes, the creature was encountered by several witnesses and became associated with the collapse of the Silver Bridge in 1967.

Since then, other people have also reported sightings of a similar creature. In 2017, a total of 55 sightings of mysterious winged creatures were reported in the Chicago area alone.

"I saw a plane flying, but also something moving really awkwardly under it," said one security guard. "It didn't look like a bat so much as what illustrations of pterodactyls look like, with the slenderness of its head and its wing shape. I know what birds and what bats look like."

"This thing didn't have any feathers or fur, and it didn't fly like anything I've ever seen."

Now a new documentary is aiming to investigate these and other similar sightings from across the United States in the hope of better understanding the nature and origins of such stories.

Named Terror in the Skies, it is directed by Seth Breedlove and produced by Small Town Monsters.

A trailer for the documentary can be viewed below.

'Terror In The Skies': New documentary to throw light on mysterious winged creatures including the recent Chicago Mothman

A security guard for a popular Logan Square hangout in Chicago, The Owl, was having a regular summer night in 2017 when he went outside and saw something very strange.

He said in an interview at the time: "I saw a plane flying, but also something moving really awkwardly under it. It didn't look like a bat so much as what illustrations of pterodactyls look like, with the slenderness of its head and its wing shape. I know what birds and what bats look like. This thing didn't have any feathers or fur, and it didn't fly like anything I've ever seen."

Amitrano also told VICE that the strange creature he saw, had muscular legs, a jutting tailbone, and a human-like shape.

According to him, it flew around in a "strange swooping motion, undulating up and down". The man then quickly took his phone from a charging station and texted his girlfriend and closest friends about what he just saw. He said: "I remember thinking, 'this was the worst time in the world to have my phone charging'."

Amitrano's sighting of the strange flying humanoid-like creature was one of 55 that were reported across Chicago in 2017. The accounts of the creature have varied from "a large, black, bat-like being with glowing red eyes" to "a big owl".

Some even described the creature as resembling a "Gothic gargoyle" or a "Mothman". Most of the eyewitnesses saw the creature in-flight, but some of the reports say that it dropped down onto the hoods of cars, peered through windows, and even tried to attack bystanders.

Taking all of these sightings and adding a few more mysterious cryptids into the mix, award-winning production company Small Town Monsters and director Seth Breedlove have now made a documentary that talks about these strange winged creatures.

The documentary, called 'Terror In The Skies' explores legends from Alton's man-eating Piasa Bird to the most recent sighting of the infamous Mothman in Chicago.

So where did the legend of the Mothman begin? The answer to that question takes us back to November 12, 1966, where five men who were digging a grave at a cemetery close to Clendenin, West Virginia, claimed that they saw a man-like figure flying low from the trees above their heads. This account is most often identified as the first-ever sighting of the Mothman.

A few days later, on November 15, two young couples from Point Pleasant, West Virginia, told authorities that they saw an enormous grey creature whose eyes "glowed red" when their car's headlights picked it up. Roger and Linda Scarberry and Steve and Mary Mallette described the creature as a "large flying man with 10-foot wings", that allegedly followed their car while they were driving around an area called the "TNT area", which is the site of a former World War II munitions plant, outside of town.

This sparked a worldwide phenomenon that catapulted the legend of the Mothman to the same level as those of Bigfoot or the Loch Ness Monster. The production company launched a Kickstarter campaign on February 7 and it was 90% funded in just the first 24 hours. So far, backers have pledged more than $54,000 to the films of their $35,000 goal.

The campaign page for 'Terror In The Skies' says that the funding will close on March 9. The film is slated to release in June this year and is narrated by author, musician and television personality Lyle Blackburn.
