To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I love love love creature features! I love Cryptozoology! I love the Mothman!!!! This a great movie to have on a date / a party / alone, or as ive seen it numerous times I often have it on in my studio while im drawing and painting. It also really makes me want to attend the annual Mothman Festival :)
A strange morality lesson: first, how to dispose of a pesky little brother, and second, the consequences thereof (albeit a decade late in coming, proving that you can almost get away with murder). "Just for fun," a group of teens drown a boy then cover it up by bashing him in the head 7 times (the `story' that they all stuck with was that this poor boy must have dove into the water and hit his head on a rock.....7 times!). That the local cops bought this theory is a testament to their brilliant powers of deduction. Although it is difficult to believe that they readily accepted that this boy kept jumping into the water, hitting his head on the same rock, until it finally did the trick!? A bizarre premise in any alternate universe, but that's what we're expected to believe so that the story could move forward 10 years (with these same 7 "kids" looking not a minute older). Trouble begins when one of the reluctant murderers (Jewel Staite) returns to the scene of the crime, her hometown. At that point, MOTHMAN finally seeks his revenge, like some crime fighting do-gooder trying to rectify injustice by killing the perpetrators of this heinous crime. Some of his methods are rather imaginative, like death by Airstream (the moral being, don't stand too close to your trailer). After that, they're taken out higgledy-piggledy in an inconsistent but tasteful fashion.
I'm ashamed to admit I thought it was a hoot, I like it. I even liked the `cartoon' looking MOTHMAN. My only complaint has to do with the jacket cover on the DVD....what is it, because nothing like it appeared in this movie.
I originally watched Mothman when it premiered on the SyFy Channel, I then last year bought the film on Amazon for about $4 and it wasn't a bad purchase. The movie is about friends, when they were younger were messing around with a younger kid and they accidentally killed him. Then I think it was ten years later, The Mothman creature is out to get revenge for the kid who died. A easily watchable low budget horror film with decent CGI for a SyFy flick and also decent acting for a SyFy film. I overall thought the film was decent but I am also one of the only ones who doesn't mind SyFy Original Movies and I actually own a good amount of SyFy films. Overall, A simple plot, decent acting, decent CGI, and also watchable.
I would only say check it out if you like low budget horror films as myself.
