Critic Reviews of "The Mothman Prophecies"NewsweekSeptember 29, 2008
Pellington knows, as did the 1940s master of horror Val Lewton, that what you don't see can raise far more goose bumps than what you do.Chicago ReaderJanuary 11, 2008
This is the scariest movie I've ever seen.VarietyJanuary 11, 2008
Director Mark Pellington hardly lets a moment pass without suggesting some bad vibes creeping onto the edges of the screen, but he's let down by Richard Hatem's script.Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
There are certainly strong moments and efficient set pieces here, too, but for all the claims that the film, adapted from a 1975 book by John Keel, is based on real events, Pellington fails to sustain credibility.Minneapolis Star TribuneNovember 06, 2002
Despite hints that it aspires to be more, The Mothman Prophecies is a by-the-numbers sci-fi thriller.Chicago TribuneJuly 20, 2002
A gaudy yet grim science-fiction horror movie of such surpassing silliness, humorless intensity and stylistic overkill that watching it may actually put you in a state of paranoia. Why are these moviemakers persecuting us?Georgia StraightFebruary 07, 2014
Faced with such an unlikely mishmash of unexplainable events, you've given up believing anything by the time the popcorn's gone.Common Sense MediaDecember 28, 2010
Psychological thriller may deeply upset some kids.Suite101.comSeptember 19, 2010
The stylish bleakness keeps you off-balance with unreliable narration and an unforgettable conclusion. The more it accelerates rant-and-rave paranoia, the greater it gets - a campfire-ready chiller whose subconscious embers glow long after it's over.Cinema CrazedApril 29, 2009
A sub-par, often lethargic take on a a creepy urban legend with absolutely nothing to offer its audience.Sacramento News & ReviewAugust 07, 2008
Messy but eerie.eFilmCritic.comJuly 18, 2008
The last reel or so is an embarrassment -- or entertainment at long last, depending on how you look at it.
