Film review:- The Mothman Prophecies.
This film is meant  to be based on true events. “The Mothman Prophecies” examines a series of inexplicable occurrences through the eyes - and mind - of one man. 

Another good film....   I still want to give a one star rating, but can't on this one.  It is a really interesting suspense-filled thriller!  The film starts off as a very normal horror film style, but soon turns very stylistic X-Files style.  At some points I expected Mulder to appear with Scully!  The film sees a journalist called John Klein (Richard Gere) who is driven to extremes to investigate the mysterious circumstances surrounding his wife’s death.  He sets out to find out what the connection is, if any, with the strange phenomena in a town four hundred miles away in West Virginia, called Point Pleasant. He teams up with Sgt. Connie Parker (Laura Linney) a local cop who lives in Point Pleasant, as she is at a loss to explain what is going on.  For John, it’s a race against time to figure it out – and try to prevent something terrible from happening, but what is?  The film does plod on at times so it loses a star with our system for that, but if you like Horror, well then Forget 13 Ghosts, this is what you've been waiting for over the last year! 3 out of 5 as it has limited appeal to some viewers.
