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

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.

Mothman erotica

Fap for the Mothman

Things get steamy (and weird) for three cryptozoologists tracking down Mothman in this new cryptozoological erotica story.

Mothman isn’t exactly a sex icon. Not like dinosaurs, Sasquatch, extraterrestrials, and the other lascivious creatures copulating with humans in the volumes of monster erotica available on Amazon.

But that is set to change with the new short e-book Fap for the Mothman. This is an important milestone because, as author Dr. Lenore Ronalds says, it may be “the first erotica involving the Mothman.”

Frank and Alec, interns with the American Cryptozoological Institute, are in Chicago following reports of Mothman sightings near Lake Michigan with little success. But thankfully they’re getting backup: World renowned cryptozoologist Professor Mary Ann Worth, known for her skills in tracking down and hooking up with with cryptids like Bigfoot and the Beast of Bray Road.

All in the name of science, of course.

Upon her arrival in Chicago, Ms. Worth follows a lead that brings her to the Skydeck of the Sears tower, where she has her first (sticky) encounter with the large, winged creature and it’s feathery member.

But don’t worry, she’s not the only one getting in on the action, as it turns out Mothman is gender fluid and capable of producing whatever genitalia it needs to get the job done. It seems John Keel left that part out of his book about the Point Pleasant Mothman encounters, but thankfully Fap for the Mothman even provides a historical glimpse into Mothman’s unusual mating activities.

In the end, Mary Ann, Frank, and Alec manage to find some very compelling evidence of Mothman.

Including samples. LOADS of samples.

Mothman and the collapse of the Silver Bridge in Point Pleasant

The Silver Bridge Collapsed 50 Years Ago After a Series of Bizarre Mothman Sightings

After a series of bizarre Mothman sightings in Point Pleasant, the Silver Bridge collapsed into the icy waters of the Ohio River and took 46 lives with it.

“I had a terrible nightmare,” Ohio reporter Mary Hyre told journalist John Keel on November 19, 1967, just under a month before the tragedy struck. “There were a lot of people drowning in the river and Christmas packages were floating everywhere in the water. Its like something awful is going to happen.”

50 years ago a bizarre rash of strange occurrences and sightings of a creature that came to be known as the Mothman in Point Pleasant, West Virginia, culminated in the collapse of the Silver Bridge on December 15th, 1967. The bridge took 46 lives with it as it plunged into the dark, icy waters of the Ohio River.

After that, the Mothman sightings stopped.

Was the mysterious entity there to warn the community of the impending tragedy, or was it the cause? Of course, no one has any idea what Mothman actually was. Some speculate that it may have been a large bird – a heron or sandhill crane that might have wandered out of its migration route. Since those types of birds were not native to the area, it’s easy to see how locals could mistake one for a flying man with a 10-foot wingspan, glowing eyes, and the ability to keep up with a moving vehicle, right?

Mothman may not be stirring up trouble in Point Pleasant these days, but that doesn’t mean he’s retired.

Chicago Mothman

While its not related to the Silver Bridge tragedy, an increasing number of encounters with a bat-like flying humanoid are being reported in the Chicago area. The most recent happened in October, when a couple was attacked in their car in Piotrowski Park. My friend Allison Jornlin of MilwaukeeGhosts.com has been investigating and sharing videos from the locations at youtube.com/mothman.

Is something bad going to happen in Chicago?

It’s been 50 years since the collapse of the Silver Bridge in Point Pleasant, West Virginia, as well as the bizarre sightings and unexplained events leading up to it. Was Mothman trying to warn of the impending tragedy, or did the mysterious flying humanoid creature cause it?

The 16th annual Mothman Festival happens this September 16th and 17th, with live music, vendors, hayrides and bus tours through the notorious TNT area, a Mothman 5K run, the Miss Mothman Pageant, and plenty of food shaped like everyone’s favorite harbinger of doom.

The latest documentary from Small Town Monsters focuses on the bizarre 13 months of Mothman sightings and other phenomena that happened in Point Pleasant, West Virginia leading up to the disastrous collapse of the Silver Bridge in which 46 lives were lost. Mothman of Point Pleasant, narrated by cryptozoologist Lyle Blackburn, is now streaming on Amazon right here.

From the description:

In November of 1966 a car full of kids encountered a creature unlike anything they’d ever seen before. In the weeks and months to follow, the monster (now known as The Mothman) was sighted again and again on country roads and around the state of West Virginia. As the sightings continued so did an increase in unusual activity.

At the center of this bizarre series of events was the town of Point Pleasant, WV. A small burb situated on the banks of the Ohio river with a lengthy history of what many might call bad luck. Over the next thirteen months Point Pleasant would undergo one of the strangest outbreaks of paranormal activity the world has ever seen. An outbreak that eventually ended in tragedy.
