Pellington’s sharp, fast-ball compositions and nerve-splintering cutting style are of a piece with such intelligence devilishly mixing shock with optimism. – F.X. Feeney, LA Weekly
The Mothman Prophecies is arguably one of the horror genre’s most frightening films ever released in the 2000s, and it’s celebrating 15 years since its theatrical release. Starring Richard Gere, Laura Linney, and David Eigenberg, the film was directed by Arlington Road’s Mark Pellington. It is the #88 most shared movie on Metacritic. In case you need some reminders, Broke Horror Fan has photos, and you can preview the soundtrack (out now on Lakeshore Records) and movie trailer below.
A suspense-filled thriller about a man (Gere) driven to extremes to investigate the mysterious circumstances surrounding his wife’s death — and how they might be connected to the strange phenomena in a town four hundred miles away.
“Better than its trailer indicates. Forget the seemingly silly Chapstick moment: Any film that sends a cold shock to your system is doing something right.” – Connie Ogle, Miami Herald
“This is the scariest movie I’ve ever seen.” – Lisa Alspector, Chicago Reader
