* HumanoidAbomination: The Mothman, if you don't consider it to be an AnimalisticAbomination.



* VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory: [[spoiler:For one, the Silver Bridge disaster happened in the late '60s. Second, the Silver Bridge was a chain-link bridge, an unusual construction with no redundancy, that is, if one link fails, they all fail. So, unlike the movie's explanation that the cause of the collapse was never determined, in actuality it was discovered to be a micro-fracture that developed over time, exacerbated by heavy traffic, that caused a sequential bridge failure.]]

For this reason, most monster hunters think that the Mothman was there to warn the public of the impending disaster.]]

The film starts with a reporter, John Klein (Creator/RichardGere), and his wife Mary (Creator/DebraMessing) looking for a new house. They get into a car accident, during which Mary first witnesses the Mothman. She is later diagnosed with a brain tumor and dies soon after. Before she dies, she draws [[RoomFullOfCrazy some really creepy pictures of the Mothman]].
