We gave it a B+

A paranormal thriller directed by the talented Mark Pellington, who creates a mood of hushed apocalyptic creepiness that earns comparison to Don’t Look Now. Richard Gere, as a Washington Post reporter, is led to Point Pleasant, W. Va., where the citizens have all seen…something. The Mothman Prophecies is really just classy trash, but Pellington makes even a midnight phone call feel like a message from beyond. B+
