A lost film?
23 May 2010 | by okusandmanSee all my reviews

I found a reference to this movie while reading up on the Mothman, and found a death list of "Mothman Curse" victims. One of the names listed was Gene Andrusco.

"... Andrusco, 38, was found dead in The Green Room, his production studio in Huntington Beach, California, during the early morning of March 30, 2000, of a brain aneurysm or heart attack.

The only movie Gene Andrusco ever worked on was Douglas TenNapel's elusive independent film, Mothman (2000). Andrusco was the music editor, and performed some of the music, as a member of the Lost Dogs. The film was the first feature directed by Douglas TenNapel, produced by Mark Russell and Jay Holben, and executive produced by Martin Cohen of DreamWorks SKG. It was shot on location in Orange County, California, and Point Pleasant, West Virginia, on 35 mm in fifteen days throughout the month of December 1997. Jay Holben, the film's head cinematographer, would go on to do Minority Report; Mark Russell would produce Minority Report. A sneak preview of TenNapel's Mothman was held at San Diego Comic-Con on August 12, 1999, but, although the date of final release is listed as 2000, no one really knows whatever happened to the film, and TenNapel refuses to discuss it to this day."

Does anyone know anything else? I am assuming the people who voted for it confused it with one of the other Mothman movies.
