~~ The Mothman Prophecies ~~ I like to write about things that I have strong opinions for, whether I strongly like it or dislike it.

“The Mothman enigma.”

published 11/12/2003

ProGenuinely scary, well directed.

ConsA little far fetched for a true story.

I was rooting round bored in the video shop one day when I came across one of those films you see and then forget, the one you mean to watch someday, when you could be bothered. It was ‘The Mothman Prophecies,’ starring Richard Gere. I’ve heard mixed reports about this. I always approach every...

“Moth To A Flame”

published 04/01/2003

ProCreepy, Good Acting, Great Climax

ConsSlow pace

Horror films can come in many different forms, most of the time you'll associate the genre with a crazed madman or supernatural being intent on tearing up the screen with some slasher style carnage. However in recent years there has also been an increase in the subtle horror film, the kind that...

“Gere Battles Giant Moth”

published 19/12/2002

Progripping supernatural thriller

Consyou might have to sleep with the lights on

Well, not quite, but that might be the tabloid headline! The Mothman Prophecies is, as the name suggests, about a large moth/man who appears to predict tragic events. “How ridiculous”, was my initial reaction on reading the blurb about this film, a slightly larger than normal man who looks a bit...

ProCreepy, fairly original, good Gere performance

ConsCop-out ending, slight in places

First there was Spiderman, then followed Ant-Man, The Wasp and The Green Hornet. Now there is a new superhero on the block, more averagely paced than a Ron Howard movie, able to leap believability in a single bound, more powerful than the locomotion, yes folks Mothman is upon us! GASP as he...

“X Files a la David Lynch”

published 24/01/2005

ProCreepy like you wouldnt believe

ConsSome 2D characters

The Mothman Prophecies is a 2002 film based on the book of the same name written by John Keel about the events which unfurled during the year of 1966-7 in the sleepy rural town of Point Pleasant, West Virginia. Keel has spent forty years chasing aerial lights, big hairy beasties and other freaks...

“WHAT DO YOU SEE”

published 27/08/2002

ProCreepy, atmospheric

ConsNot what you might expect

Few phenomenon have captured the imagination of human beings in quite the same way as precognition. Hundreds of stories have been written of strange people or creatures who possess an ability to predict the future. Based on John A Keel’s famous novel, The Mothman Prophecies examines a...

“Moth or Myth”

published 09/06/2002

ProGood cast, good music, full of suspense

ConsNone I can think of

Based on actual events which took place in Point Pleasant, W.Va., in December 1967, this movie will have your undivided attention for two whole hours. It may even have some men suffering from that well-known condition common to those who are focused on something interesting – temporary deafness...

Procreepy and intriguing

Consa bit slow in places

The Mothman Prophecies is an eerie and disturbing tale.I was surprised just how creepy I found it, because as it has a 12 certificate and I wasn’t expecting to be particularly scared.It proves that you don’t need blood and gore to make a film creepy. It’s a bit like an old fashioned horror film...

“Lucky it's just a film”

published 04/02/2003

ProEntertaining and thought provoking

ConsPossibly scare the life out of you

I first watched this film at the cinema becuase it looked very intrigueing. I didn't have great expectations and given i'm not a Richard Gere fan, i did worry this was going to be a waste of £5 or so. Little did i realise this was going to be the best film i'd seen for a long time but possibly...

Looking at the reviews on IMDB for this film, it seems you either love it or hate it, and I fall in the loved it category. In fact this has now taken pride of place in my top 5 films on my personal home page. Mothman prophecies is a hard film to classify. It’s not really a horror film in the...
