Between 1966 and 1967, the Mothman terrified countless residents of Point Pleasant, West Virginia, securing a place in modern American folklore. The black winged creature with glowing red eyes was blamed for the deaths of 46 people and became a nationwide news story. The monster was considered a portent of doom and tapped into the late 60s zeitgeist of fear in a nation already coming apart at the seams with civil rights protests, assassinations and an escalating war in South East Asia.

The dawn of the home video age in the late 1970s was a magical experience. The VCR became a bona fide extension of the Hollywood experience in the comfort of your own living room. Video stores were houses of wonder, in that innocent pre-internet age, there was simply no way to determine what many of these strange movies were, or where they had come from, nowhere more so than the Horror movie section. Low budget productions with lurid artwork on oversized boxes stared down from the top shelf, charging already frenzied imaginations with the nightmarish possibilities of what those forbidden films might hold in store. Many of the concepts of which had been drawn from popular culture itself and the strange tales that inhabit urban mythology in the zeitgeist.
