Search For The Mothman

Posted by: Loren Coleman on June 18th, 2007


The David Grabias documentary Search For The Mothman – at least nine minutes of it – that is contained in the Deluxe Special Edition of The Mothman Prophecies has just appeared on YouTube. Here is the video below.

You will note, especially if you watch the entire documentary, that John A. Keel and I are the two major Mothman historians appearing throughout. (I don’t like the word “expert” much, or “talking head,” but then, I’ve been called worse.)

More importantly, I find the full-length documentary worthwhile because it contains archival footage from the time of the sightings and collapse of the Silver Bridge, as well as contemporary interviews with the eyewitnesses.

Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

    Fascinating Loren – thanks for sharing it. 🙂

    Having read and researched extensively on the subject my own humble opinion is:

    If you believe the supernatural and paranormal are a part of the physical world then “Search For The Mothman” is worthwhile viewing. On the other hand, if you don’t believe in the supernatural and paranormal, then it is a waste of your time. As a member of the latter view, I would submit Mothman is nothing more than a gumbo of misidentified birds, impressionable witnessess and a manipulative promoter. (i.e. Keel, not Coleman.)
