Indrid Cold is a mysterious figure, a grinning "man", related to the mothman sightings in Point Pleasant, West Virginia in the 1960s.

From Wikipedia:
Several Grinning Man reports were made in 1966, during the same period as the Point Pleasant, West Virginia, Mothman sightings. These reports were recorded by John A. Keel in chapters 5 and 10 of his book The Mothman Prophecies.
  • The second encounter happened on November 2, 1966. A man named Woodrow Derenberger was driving home in his panel truck after a hard day of work. As he drove up a hill outside of Parkersburg on Interstate 77, he heard a sudden crash. A vehicle was speeding behind him, and it suddenly cut in front of him and slowed down. Derenberger looked in amazement as the vehicle that passed him looked like "an old fashioned kerosene lamp chimney, flaring at both ends, narrowing down to a small neck and then enlarging in a great bulge in the center." The "thing" blocked the road, and a door slid open on the side of it. Then a man stepped out, described as around 6 feet tall, with long dark hair combed straight back. His skin was heavily tanned. He wore an outfit that was made out of some sort of "glistening green material," similar to the outfit worn by the other Grinning Man that was encountered in Elizabeth, New Jersey by the two boys. He was grinning broadly. Derenberger said that the figure spoke to him telepathically and said his name was "Cold" and went off asking him strange questions. Then the strange entity said that he would visit Derenberger again, and he got back in the craft and left.
  • Another case described in chapter 10 in the Mothman Prophecies happened in the home of the Lillys, a family living in a rural section of Point Pleasant. The Lillys were witnessing strange lights in the sky right above their home at least every night, as well as unexplained manifestations inside of their home. Mrs. Lilly said, "We've seen all kinds of strange things...blue lights, green ones, red ones, things that change color. Some have been so low that we thought we could see diamond-shaped windows in them. And none of them make any noise at all." Automobiles near the Lilly home stalled without explanation; doors and kitchen cabinets inside the home slammed in the middle of the night while everyone was asleep. The living room door, which was chained and snap-locked at night, was standing wide open the next morning, as if someone had somehow opened it from the outside. They heard loud metallic sounds "like a pan falling," and Mrs. Lilly said she heard a sound like "a baby crying" throughout the home. It seemed to originate only a few feet away from her in the house, but no infants were present and she never saw anything. John A. Keel, who personally investigated and questioned the Lilly family, asked them, "Did you ever dream that there was a stranger in the house in the middle of the night?" Linda Lilly, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Lilly then confessed her story. She described how she woke up one night and saw a very large figure towering over her bed. "It was a man, a big man. Very broad. I couldn't see his face very well, but I could see that he was grinning at me." Mrs. Lilly said that she heard a terrible scream that night, and Linda ran into her room screaming "There is a man in my room! There is!" She refused to sleep alone ever since the encounter.
Derenberger wrote a book about his experiences titled Visitors from Lanulos (which unfortunately is very hard to find! Though I would love to read it!)
You can hear an in-depth interview with Derenberger on this site: http://www.freewebs.com/weirdtales/thetruthonindridcold.htm

Indrid Cold Speaking on the Phone (clip from the movie Mothman Prophecies ---very good movie!)
Seriously, one of the creepiest and most underrated thriller/horror films ever.



What or who do you think Indrid Cold is? Is Indrid Cold real?
