The eyes see only what the mind can comprehend.

Do you believe in curses? The people of Point Pleasant, West Virginia surely do, and they have every right to. This small salt-of-the-earth American town has been plagued with unusual incidents since the late 1800s.

It all came to a head in 1966, when local police were flooded with reports of UFOs, poltergeists, missing persons and sightings of a tall, winged ‘Mothman’ with paralysing red eyes, who chased after cars and confronted hundreds of locals.

The story of the Mothman and his menacing raid on the God-fearing souls of Point Pleasant is not just about those bizarre encounters, but their poignant connection to a history of profound events going back generations.
