So it's really a regionalist documentary loosely based around a folklore figure?  Because I just read the Wiki and can't believe that anyone thinks "something is out there" based on these descriptions and evidence.

It's definitely a local legend, and all the "evidence" is consistently unreliable witness testimony. That said, the doc does a pretty good job of setting up the non-supernatural/ cryptid possibilities.

Regionally, Mothman is a huge deal though. I don't know if I'd go so far as to say it's part of the local culture. (Though that's definitely true for Point Pleasant proper.) However, there certainly seemed to be a "mass hysteria" element that took over during the era of all the sightings. And the bridge collapse that ended the sightings was the worst in U.S. history up until recently.

I'm sorry that Chief Cornstalk is being removed from the legend. His curse on the region used to be the centerpiece of the whole thing:

Quote
I was the border man’s friend. Many times I have saved him and his people from harm. I never warred with you, but only to protect our wigwams and lands. I refused to join your paleface enemies with the red coats. I came to the fort as your friend and you murdered me. You have murdered by my side, my young son.... For this, may the curse of the Great Spirit rest upon this land. May it be blighted by nature. May it even be blighted in its hopes. May the strength of its peoples be paralyzed by the stain of our blood.

Sounds like the Ohio Valley region to me!

Is the wiki removing Cornstalk? Because the doc bookends itself with it.

we're not really entertaining the idea that there are active native american curses, are we?

Speaking of which I just heard a radio ad recruiting for the Freemasons. Whatever happened to your Mason membership?

I decided not to pay hundreds in dues every year to belong to a club where drunken old men and frat boys get away from their wives and eat rubber chicken.
