From Amazon.co.uk

Described by director Mark Pellington as "a psychological mystery with naturally surreal overtones", The Mothman Prophecies begins like an ambitious episode of The X-Files. Richard Gere brings adequate torment, portent, and ambiguity to his role as a Washington Post reporter and grieving widower plagued by a mysterious, unseen urban legend known as the Mothman. Pellington develops subtle doom and gloom that's as effective as the paranoid streak he brought to Arlington Road. As the Mothman terrifies a West Virginia town, he remains an enigma, glimpsed almost subliminally. This--along with a magnificently creepy soundtrack--amplifies the movie's surreal overtones while keeping everything else (unsettling phone calls, prophesied disasters, suggestions of the afterlife) completely unexplained. With Laura Linney and Debra Messing in underdeveloped roles, The Mothman Prophecies feels a bit underdeveloped itself (and ends in desperate need of Mulder and Scully). But if you like your weirdness open-ended, this moody thriller's worth a look. --Jeff Shannon

5.0 out of 5 stars Classy, suspensful chiller. 19 Sep 2002
Format:VHS Tape
This is a fabulous film. It's based on the true story of a "moth-man" creature seen in various sightings around the world, as a pre-cursor to disaster events. This moth-man appears before the disaster, presenting rather clouded and confusing messages to those he visits. It transpires that these messages are in fact prophecies of the impending disaster.
Richard Gere is very well cast here as the innocent guy caught up in the mystery after his wife dies after a car crash. In the seconds before the crash, his wife "sees" this awful creature lundge at the car. She dies some days later, after doctors discover a brain tumour - which would not have been discovered had it not have been for the crash caused by the moth-man.
Two years later, Richard's character is drawn into the mystery when he takes a drive in his car, only to end up hundreds of miles away from his intended destination in about a quarter of the time it should have taken to get there! He soon learns of sightings of this wierd being whom he recognises as that seen by his wife before her death.
What follows is Richard's attempts to quantify his experiences which are interlinked with an increasing number of sightings in a small American town he is drawn to.
I won't say any more as it will ruin the many twists and turns.
Suffice it to say it's a very well made film with some chilling moments (similar in effect to that famous twist at the end of Sixth Sense). It keeps you on your seat's edge guessing at precisely what is going on and why.
You are still left with questions at the end, but they retain the mystery surrounding what is a true phenomenan.
The final scenes on a river bridge are superb and just when you think you know where the film's going, it takes yet another twist.
Fine acting, a deep and fascinating story line and cleverly directed suspense scenes make this one NOT to miss.

5.0 out of 5 stars be afraid - the mothman cometh 4 Sep 2002
Format:DVD
mark pellington's film has many strengths - a surreal atmosphere evoked by sound and light, strong performances from the cast, superb editing and a spine tingling score... but perhaps its strongest point is the films restraint. the film scares well but it doesn't use sudden loud noises, cats jumping into frame or quick editing to do so. instead, pellington builds a sense of dread from the off - something in this world isn't quite right.
richard gere is quite effective in a stoic role - indeed he reigns in a performance free of his usual facial ticks. laura linney is as good as she ever is (which is fine by me) even if her role is a little under written. in a tiny role as gere's wife, debra messing is surprisingly good and will patton gives a strong reading of a man tortured by visions of disaster.
a terrificly subtle movie that lingers in the mind - perhaps one of the best horror movies of the last few years.

3.0 out of 5 stars Some elements work, many do not. 22 Mar 2012
Format:DVD
The biggest criticism of this film when it was released seemed to be it's inability to answer the questions that it posed; but that's truly the point. Mothman Prophecies comes to the conclusion that we can't truly know about death, when it comes, why, and what happens afterwards, many times throughout it's runtime. And this is a message that's presented quite beautifully, thoughtfully and subtly, the 'Mothman' (as silly as it sounds) acting as an extended metaphor for this. This immediately places the film in a far more intelligent bracket of films than most horror. However, it's not without it's flaws. The performances aren't fantastic - as brilliantly likable as Richard Gere is, his gurning becomes tiresome by the third act, whilst melodrama infects some of the lesser roles. There are also some distracting visual gimmicks - the camera washed red, fastforwarding - that just seem cheap and dated, and provide no real purpose. Overall though, the film will get under your skin, the chills masterfully and quietly excecuted - not only that but it's a horror with something to say. Oh, and it has one hell of a climax.

5.0 out of 5 stars A psychological thriller 27 Feb 2004
Format:DVD
Richard Gere stars as a reporter, who following the death of his wife a couple of years earlier finds himself inexplicably in a small town having travelled much farther that is realistically possible in the time he'd been on the road. His car appears to have broken down so he calls at the nearest house to phone for assistance only to be accused of having called at the same house at the same time on the previous two evenings. He hears of the sightings or visions of this strange creature nicknamed the mothman and recognises it's description as being the same as a number of doodlings his wife made shortly before her death. The film traces his efforts to get to the bottom of what is going on. It works well because by enlarge you're allowed to decide for yourself whether the mothman exists or whether it is collective hysteria or coincidence.

5.0 out of 5 stars An eerily, excellent film! 28 Jan 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The uneasiness this film precipitates in the viewer is quite enjoyably disturbing! One cannot ascertain if the the forces at work within the story are benign or malignant and this adds to the stress it induces! If you're a fan of 'shock and gore' horror then this film is NOT for you. This is a film that stays with you long after it is over and has one ruminating about the idea of what the Mothman represents

I thoroughly recommend this DVD if you enjoy intellectually-driven horror!
