Mothman Returns In A Local Film And Our Song Of The Week, This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, the state’s best-known cryptid is back in a new movie, the locally produced “Return of the Mothman.”

Inside Appalachia producer Bill Lynch spoke with film director Herb Gardner about why people are still interested in the Mothman.
