Terror in the Skies: Doc Explores Stories of Large Winged Creatures in the Prairie State

By on February 7, 2019

What are the large winged creatures terrorizing the skies? Documentary looks at Chicago Mothman and other winged cryptids in Illinois.

Small Town Monsters, who recently brought us The Bray Road Beast, The Mothman of Point Pleasant, and other documentaries about local legends and lore, released a trailer for their next project. Terror in the Skies, the second film in their “Mothman trilogy” (The Mothman Legacy is coming in 2020), unearths strange reports of Mothman and thunderbirds in Illinois.

“Illinois is known for its miles of prairie, and for being a state rich in history,” the press release says, “but what if that rich history isn’t quite what you’ve been told? In this new film, from award-winning production company, Small Town Monsters, and director, Seth Breedlove, explore hundreds of years of terrifying reports of encounters with massive, winged creatures around the “land of Lincoln”. From Alton’s man-eating Piasa Bird legends, to recent sightings in Chicago of a creature said to resemble Point Pleasant, West Virginia’s infamous “Mothman”, Terror in the Skies unlocks a centuries-old mystery.”

Terror in the Skies includes interviews with Loren Coleman of the International Cryptozoology Museum, Illinois paranormal author Troy Taylor, and more.
