Given the fact that I am not a real fan of the ‘supernatural’ film genre, I had, in the past, past on several opportunities to view the subject film. I knew little about the content or plot but creepy pictures of a moth-like looking creature on the film’s advertisement posters and ads were enough to deter my interest.
But a few nights after noticing it was airing again on cable and perhaps finally realizing that it starred the likes of Richard Gere, Laura Linney, Debra Messing and Will Patton thought perhaps I should reconsider given its underlying star power. And so it was that I settled in on this particular evening and decided to give it a look.
Pleasantly surprised I believe would be appropriate with regards to my reaction to the movie. It was quite entertaining and one of those films kept you a bit on your toes with several twists that kept you attentive and at times a bit antsy.

And unlike many movies, I found myself during the next day or two having the film pop into my mind and realizing what something meant that I had totally missed while watching the film. Since this film does flirt somewhat with the supernatural, ‘prophecy’ being the key word there, it might not be to everyone’s liking but don’t miss the fact that it is based on true events…
