THE MOTHMAN LEGACY
GETS RELEASE DATE – OCTOBER 20, 2020
The final chapter in Seth Breedlove’s Mothman trilogy
1091 announced today that it has acquired the worldwide digital and broadcast rights to the horror documentary The Mothman Legacy which was previously set to premiere in theaters on September 18, 2020 at the Mothman Festival, cancelled this year due to COVID-19. The film will now be released exclusively on digital streaming platforms on October 20, 2020. Directed by Seth Breedlove and produced by Adrienne Breedlove, this film is a follow up to Terrors in The Skies and a direct sequel to the 2017 documentary The Mothman of Pleasant Point.
The Mothman Legacy is the story of one of the most frightening American urban myths, the legend of The Mothman, a red-eyed creature seen by some as a harbinger of doom in 1960s rural West Virginia, where sightings of the winged demonic beast were first documented near an old munitions dump known by locals as TNT.
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?
“We couldn’t be happier to team with 1091 in the release of our latest Small Town Monsters film, The Mothman Legacy,” stated director Seth Breedlove, Small Town Monsters. “The crew and I believe we’ve created something truly unique with this project; a terrifying real-life horror story, and a case study on the roots of a modern myth. Featuring interviews with witnesses of the Mothman, alongside experts, authors and locals, this is a story that was begging to be told and we’re anxious to unveil this untold chapter in the mountain states monstrous past.”
Seth Breedlove and Small Town Monsters is managed by Elizabeth Fowler at Clear Pictures Entertainment.
Jim Martin, VP of 1091 Media stated “Seth, and SmallTown Monsters have brought one of the greatest mysteries to life with The Mothman Legacy. The film gives a fresh take on the terrifying legend of The Mothman creature and the encounters that plagued Point Pleasant VA.”
