    I don't get to go to the movies that often. And when I do it is either to take my kids to see a kiddy movie or something that HAS to be seen on a large screen. I read "Mothman Prophecies" is based on actual events. What am I curious about is the real big event that happens at the end of the movie. Thanks!

    Putting this in spoiler tags just in case someone wanders in by mistake:

    The disaster that ends the film is the collapse of the Silver Bridge that crossed the Ohio river at Point Pleasant, West Virginia. This happened in the mid-60s, although the film relocates the events in time to the present day. Also, many more people were killed in the real disaster than the filmed version.
