One of America’s most popular cryptids, Mothman, is getting a bookend to a trilogy with The Mothman Legacy. A trailer and a new one-sheet have been dropped to promote the film’s crowdfunding campaign. The film is the latest work of cryptid documentarian Seth Breedlove and the one-sheet artwork is from artist Christopher Shy (Godzilla: King of Monsters).
For anyone that may not be familiar with the Mothman legend, many believe the Mothman to be a 1960’s phenomenon, an omen only appearing before tragedy, and disappearing after a flap of sightings and the subsequent Silver Bridge collapse in 1967. But what if there’s more? What if the origins of this omen trace back much further and go much deeper than anyone realized? And what if…the sightings never ended?
The Mothman Legacy provides a glimpse into the dark, haunting landscapes of West Virginia and includes sound clips from witnesses that were interviewed for the film.
As mentioned above, a crowdfunding campaign will be launched today, February 6, 2020, via Kickstarter. Rewards for contributing to the campaign include copies of the film on DVD and Blu-ray, posters, t-shirts and more.
Small Town Monsters made waves in 2017 with their documentary The Mothman of Point Pleasant, followed by 2019’s Terror in the Skies. The Mothman trilogy will conclude with the release of The Mothman Legacy, set to premiere in Fall 2020.
