Final Grade:

Have you ever had one of those dreams where you thought that it was trying to tell you something, and then days later you realize that by some strange coincidence something happens that makes that bizzare dream make sense? I did once, I had this dream where I went to this movie with Richard Gere in it and everyone was saying. “Ahhh! Richard Gere! Not Richard Gere oh dear God! No!!!’I didn’t understand it at first probably because the last Richard Gere movie I had seen was Primal Fear. Now it all makes sense.

The Mothman Prophecies is the story of Washinton Post writer that investigates mysterious happenings in the small town of Point Pleasant after his wife dies in a car wreck. As he investigates he learns that these strange happenings are the cause of a Mothman trying to prophesying to the people of a great disaster to come.

All I can really say about this film was that it was eerie mainly due to the fact that it was inspired by true events. I enjoyed watching it and although slow at parts it keeps you on the edge of your seat wanting to either A.) know what happens next or B.) preparing for the end so you can escape Richard Gere land. Overall though even with the Richard Gere factor I found the movie enjoyable and would suggest you put it on your list of movies to check out…
