The Mothman Prophecies

Starring: Richard Gere, Laura Linney, Will Patton and Debra Messing
Directed by: Mark Pellington
Rated: PG-13



The Mothman Prophecies is one helluva thriller with complimentary chills courtesy of director Mark Pellington! You get this delightful all over eerie feeling right from the first few frames as you meet the happy -go- lucky couple, the Kleins (Richard Gere and Debra Messing), who are house hunting. They are way too lovey dovey for a movie with this creepy of a title!

Sure enough all hell breaks loose and together we start our journey to discovering exactly what a Mothman is...

Washington couple, John and Mary Klein (Gere and Messing), are gloriously happy together; all schnookie cuddles and whispering giggles. They've even decided to buy a big home and start a nest.

Those dreams go up in a wild flurry of closet moths as "the universe spots them" and decides to turn their world upside down.

After a relatively mild car accident Mary passes on and John is left a broken man who never really finds happiness again...

It's two years later and John's enroute to interview a governor on the edge of the state.

However, he ends up hundreds of miles off path, with no explanation in a little piddly town called Pleasant Point. His car dies in the middle of the night and he seeks the help of a local fellow who immediately wigs out and recognizes him as the stalker that's been at his house several times before.

This local is a "church going man" named Gordon (Will Paton) who claims John Klein has been ringing his door bell for days each night at 2:30am! John insists he's only just arrived in Point Pleasant. Oh, it starts to get weird!

The local law, Sgt Connie Parker (Laura Linney), gets called in by Gordon and discovers John is just another piece of an odd puzzle of events the small town folks have been experiencing. These events include a huge human-like mothman, blinding lights ala a UFO, and screeching unearthly phone messages.

John's on the brink of madness - along with a whole town! And there are no small Asian girl twins guarding this eight-foot moth (Mothra). Mothman's as real as can be to those who see him, and know of him. But, what, who is "he." What's it all mean?

It means a couple ofdamned creepy hours for us, I'll tell you!

Richard Gere is aging like a fine Stilton cheese! He just leaves you breathless! The fact that he can act is just butter based icing on the delectable manly Gere flavored cake!

Laura Linney is, as always, smooth in her delivery. I trust her when I see her name in a film. So far I have not been disappointed.

Will Patton (you'll know him when you see him) is excellent as a man confused and bewildered with the unnatural events he's encountering.

Will and Grace star Debra Messing does a brief appearance as Mary Klein, but her scenes were great.

The Mothman Prophecies is a wild ride. The dramatic direction and tingly accompanying music will keep you on the edge of your seat till the very last hair-on-the-back-of-the-neck raising frame! The whole bone chilling story is loosely based on a nonfiction book of the same name by John A. Keel (adapted for the screen by Richard Hatem ) but the film's so much scarier!
