Thoroughly interesting and insightful
4 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As someone with a heavy interest in the Mothman phenomenon, and a champion of the film "The Mothman Prophecies", I was intrigued to come across this weighty (two-hour plus) documentary on the relatively little-known phenomenon, the Mothman.

The opening back story that makes up the beginning of the film really helps give the Mothman story context, and although you have to sit with it for a little longer than you may want to, it nevertheless is an interesting introduction to the history of Point Pleasant.

Overall, the visuals are really nice -- with some clever effects and reconstructions to boot -- and to see eye-witness accounts firsthand was what really made the documentary good. To hear about events from officials, scientists and authority figures is fair enough, but to get to hear the actual witnesses speak was great.

The narrator's voice is well suited to the material and none of the reconstructions or effects are cheap, intrusive or cheesy. The subject matter is treated completely with the respect and seriousness it deserves.

I highly recommend prospective viewers of "Eyes of the Mothman" track down John Keel's compelling non-fiction book, The Mothman Prophecies, and read it before seeing this. The movie of the same name is also worth seeing, but I think you should see it before you read the book. The book will expand upon the movie, if you enjoyed it, and finishing off with this throughly interesting and insightful film won't leave you disappointed.

"Eyes of the Mothman" is a little long, but its worth sitting through. Well-made, beautifully put together, and really entertaining.
