Movie Quote(s):
  • John Klein: What do you look like? The Mothman: It depends on who is looking.
  • John Klein: It was like the universe opens up and points at you and says "AHH There you are! The happy couple, I've been looking for you!
  • Connie: Hey! Do you know that women? John Klein: What woman? Connie: She just left. You didn't see her? John Klein: No. Connie: That's strange. She had long red hair, green eyes, real pretty. She was asking about you, John? John Klein: Did you see which way she went? Connie: No. John Klein: What did she say? Connie: She asked a lot strange questions. You know, "What are you doing here?". And she asked if you were happy. John Klein: What did you say? Connie: I asked her for some I.D. John Klein: Did she give you any? Connie: No. She just said, "Tell John I'm sorry for ruining everything", and then she got up and walked out. What's wrong? [John shows her a picture of his DEAD wife] John Klein: Was it her? Was it her? Connie: That's your wife! John Klein: It was her.
  • John Klein: I think we can assume that these entities are more advanced than us. Why don't they just come right out and tell us what's on their minds? Alexander Leek: You're more advanced than a cockroach, have you ever tried explaining yourself to one of them?
  • John Klein: What's in my hand? Indrid Cold: Chap Stick.
Movie Trivia:
  • The film is based on actual events that occurred between November 1966 and December 1967 in Point Pleasant, West Virginia.
  • The name of the expert on paranormal activity is Leek, the reverse of paranormal expert and author of the novel that the film was based on, John A. Keel.
  • Director Cameo: [Mark Pellington] the bartender, also the voice of Indrid Cold during the phone call.
  • The studio cut $2 million out of the film's budget just days before shooting began. Director Mark Pellington was furious, having vowed not to make the same concessions that plagued his previous film Arlington Road (1999).
  • The scene where Indrid Cold is seen for the first time in full wasn't done with CG graphics. Bill Laing was simply shot in blurred vision
