Critic Reviews for Prophecy
Too bad the ambitious pic was so poorly made and also so lacking in entertainment value, because there's a good sci-fi story here if done right.
Truly a guilty pleasure! When your radioactive grizzly bear looks like someone poured a strawberry sundae on its head, you know you're in for a good time!
Audience Reviews for Prophecy
The first 60 minutes is totally unnecessary. After the hour mark Man Bear Pig shows up and then movie is surprisingly fun. The sleeping bag kill is awesome.
It's not a complete failure...but it's pretty close. Cheesy acting, cliched plot and a script that even I could write better, Prophecy is deserving of its obscurity.
The gooey mutant bear is pretty hip though, and that scene where it bitch-slaps the boy in the sleeping bag is amazing.
Much better than others would have you believe! This eco-monster movie is much better with drama and characters than almost any other monster movie you can think of. It is involving and especially suspenseful when the monster lets loose in the end! Frankenheimer supposedly did this to get out of his Paramount contract, but does a great job. And, David Seltzer of "The Omen," provides a good script!
