Reviewing The Mothman Prophecies

In 2002, the movie The Mothman Prophecies hit theaters. It was based on a nonfiction book by UFO/crypto investigator John A. Keel. Keel, who passed away in 2009, investigated all the Mothman/UFO/MIB and everything else strange in Point Pleasant, West Virginia, in 1966 and 1967. He is the author of several other books on UFOs/monsters, and The Mothman Prophecies was published in 1975.

The Mothman Prophecies isn't all about West Virginia's man-like flying monster. Actually, most of it isn't about Mothman at all. Keel's book is also about UFOs, MIB, and everything else weird like that. He talks about many contactees who have met "alien" beings, and tells all their stories. He also had many strange experiences of his own. During the "Year of the Garuda", as Keel called it, from November 15, 1966 to December 15, 1967 there were lots of weird things going on in Point Pleasant, West Virginia, and other places as well. Every night, people would go to the TNT Area in Pt. Pleasant and to some other places hoping to see Mothman or maybe a UFO. Keel also went out many nights, with reporter Mary Hyre from Pt. Pleasant, and saw lots of UFOs. As I mentioned before, lots of contactee stories are discussed. A contactee is someone who has met alien beings.

One contactee that got a lot of attention was Woody Derenberger, who met "Indrid Cold" near Point Pleasant. Cold and others like him were seen all over Point Pleasant and lots of other places as well.

Keel didn't believe that the UFOs were from other planets. He thought they could be some type of hallucination or something of the sort. I can't explain it like he did, so you'll have to read the book if you want to learn more about that.

The reports in each of the chapters in the book seem to be just random. But, there is always a way they are all connected.

I would definitely recommend The Mothman Prophecies to anyone who is interested in Mothman, cryptozoology, UFOs, or anything of the sort. It it the first of Keel's books that I've read, and I really enjoyed it. Some parts of it are kind of creepy. And, it might just change your conception of "reality."
