All Critics (13)

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!

I predicted this flick would be so bad it's good. I was wrong.

Remarkably undistinguished

Prophecy fails so miserably that it reaches depths generally reserved for William Shatner records and Nora Ephron screenplays. Watch it with a friend.

a dim-witted creature-feature that takes itself far too seriously

Takes some time to start up, but when it does it actually very good. The effects are decent, and I bet whoever is reading this thinks I'm tasteless for this, but I thought the bear looked pretty creepy sometimes. 54/100

Oh boy. Wow. Um...yeah. I don't know where to begin with John Frankenheimer's Prophecy, so I'll just say it sucks out loud and leave it at that. (It is pretty funny though!)

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.
