5. What is the most useful video you have found pertaining to your monster?

     I recently discovered the documentary "Eyes of the Mothman" which has proven to be most useful to my research. The intro to the movie introduced me to a related story I had never heard of before. The story of Chief Cornstalk of the Shawnee tribe and the curse he put on the Point Pleasant area. The story drags on much longer than I'd wish but it does set up for an interesting tale. The movie features first hand accounts and testimonials from locals of point pleasant as well as appearances from other prominent figures from the Mothman culture such as John Keel, author of The Mothman Prophecies. Besides the introduction most of the information regarding the Mothman I have heard and read elsewhere but it was nice to have locals to the area actually talk about it. Althought the documentary was a tad on the long side it was well made and interesting nonetheless.
