Not worth renting. I thought this movie would be great, I went all over town trying to rent it. When I finally got it, watched it, I was very VERY disapointed. Wasn't scary in the least. Rent something else tonight. Two thumbs down.
A stupid story and bady written screenplay wins out over a talented cast trying to make a decent flick. Buy or rent something else.
Freaky, it is one of the those movies that keeps you on the edge of your seat. And leaves you wanting even more. Love it and would highly recommened it. Just not with children under the age of 16.
When I first saw this movie I thought It looked more like a horror movie than something more of the mystery/supernatural genre. This is a very slow paced movie that builts on until the end, however there really is no end. I was incredibly disapointed... to never discover the answer to this mystery. Then there's the part about "based on a true story." I would like to know what exactly is true in this movie? However I would see this movie again just to get the chills down my spine when I hear that one mans voice...All in all I liked this movie because there arn't too many like it. It's very unique and at least deserves a rental. Read more Less
The Mothman Prophecies is now available on Video Compact Disc (VCD) in Malaysia, probably the first legal video release in the world. For purposes of market protection and leverage prevention, sale is not licensed to anywhere else. Price is RM 19.90 ...(approximately US$5.25 or less than 3 British Pound). Nevertheless, online video retailers for VCD are readily available and sale is available throughout the world (kind of infringing of course but who gives a hey). Video Compact Disc is like VHS on Compact Discs. They come in 2, 3, even 4 discs for each movie title. Most come in 2, some in 3, and a few in 4 discs. Capacity (movie length) dictates the number of discs required. Advantages include longer lifespan than VHS and substantial space and weight savings. Disadvantages are commonly attributed to technological factors. It's easy to duplicate original videos for sale at rock-bottom price (the pirated market). Pirates are making huge money in Malaysia and other countries (Thailand, the Philippines, Indonesia, etc) in the region. Quality of pirated videos range from immerchantable ones to DVD-like ones. Many VCDs are directly duplicated from DVDs so one can expect to be sort of watching DVD on a VCD. It's verbally called VCD DVD copy or DVD Video CD. Read more Less
Someone please tell me why the SUV with the window blown out in the back was not filled with water? I already hated it by this last scene but this really annoyed me.
This is one of my favorite types of movies - weird. Most movies are so predictable but this one had me guessing. Very engrossing and nothing unbelievable in the plot.
Definitely one of the best supernatural movies I've seen, eerie and scary, nicely done,..the fact that it was based on actual events only makes it creepier..I was surprised that no movies to my knowledge of the Mothman has ever been made until now......after so many years the legend still lives..

Uneven, but tingly, horror film. Puzzlement:
it uses the Silver Bridge tragedy of the late
1960s as a backdrop -- yet all the settings and
technology are present-day. Oh well; at least it's not the turkey the Blair Witch Project was!
