This true account of the aliens who invaded the town of Point Pleasant, West Virginia - first published in 1975 - has been made into a major motion picture starring Richard Gere, Laura Linney and Alan Bates. For thirteen months Point Pleasant was plagued by a dark terror that culminated in a major disaster. Unearthly noises and ghostly lights in the sky gave way to mutilated animals, winged monsters, weird flying machines and worst of all, the fearsomely demonic "Bird" - the Mothman. The story reads like a novel - but every single word of it is true and fully documented by john A. Keel, who spent a year in Point Pleasant where he saw and experienced many of the stranger manifestations personally.
