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.
For more on these events, the movie, and more, see: Mothman and Other Curious Encounters.
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading. 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.
