SYFY Original ‘Mothman’ Gets DVD Release

Audiences will have a new reason to fear the dark this Halloween, as Lionsgate releases Mothman on DVD October 25. A SyFy Original Movie Event, the film debuted to more than two million viewers in April 2010. Starring sci-fi fan favorite Jewel Staite (TV’s “Stargate Atlantis”), as an aspiring journalist who must return to her hometown – and the scene of her teenage crimes – to cover a story.

Desperate to put the horrific events of her past behind her, Katherine (Staite) relocates to Washington, DC after high school to become a journalist. Ten years later, she is summoned back to her hometown to cover the annual Mothman Festival. There she must face her estranged friends, and the life-altering drowning they covered up as high school seniors. The group begins to experience terrifying visions, and soon figure out that the Mothman isn’t a mere fairy tale… and it wants its revenge for their crime.
