We gave it a B+

The Mothman Prophecies wasn’t a huge box office hit — possibly because it sounds like a Syfy flick in which Tiffany battles an enormous mutant butterfly. But the supernatural thriller from 2002 is a rather respectable beast. Available on Netflix instant viewing, it stars Richard Gere and Laura Linney as a journalist and a cop investigating a weird spectral vision that appears before disasters strike. It’s a slow burn for sure. But patient viewers will be richly rewarded. We foresee it. B+
