The Mothman Prophecies (2002)

You know what people, this was a darn good movie and if anyone tells you otherwise then they are boring  Not wrong, just boring - no imagination what so ever. The stories about the Mothman are so crazy, bizarre and rather sad that you have to have a little bit of an imagination just to listen to them all.

Oddly, the movie, The Mothman Prophecies, came out before the documentary, Eyes Of The Mothman, and although the two are unrelated in all ways except topic, I found both to be very interesting, insightful, and entertaining. Of course the movie version will hype and rearrange stories about this paranormal figure so as to meet box office levels, I felt The Mothman Prophecies did alright telling their version of the story.

Both the documentary and movie received OK reviews. I believe they deserve a little more than OK. If you want the Hollywood version of this story then of course watch the movie. If you want more information on the background of the Mothman, watch the documentary. If have nothing to do today then watch both.
