I Barely got through it

Just what is The Mothman supposed to be? A harbinger from Hell? A monster from the ID? An extra-terrestrial? Bad acting and stupid plot. There is not enough shock and disbelief from the people responsible for the boy's accidental death. They act like they just dented a fender! The victim He doesn't even look very dead! the Mothman is a tall stuntman in a feathered costume with red glowing eyes! Ask for your 90 minutes back, and go watch "The Mothman Prophecies" (2002) with Richard Gere. It's far better than this mess!
