From the director of Arlington Road comes a spine-tingling, super-natural thriller based on actual events that will rattle your nerves and shake your beliefs. Distraught by the sudden, tragic death of his wife (Debra Messing), John Klein (Richard Gere), a journalist for The Washington Post, finds himself mysteriously drawn to a small West Virginia town when his car inexplicably strands him. Rescued by the sympathetic but skeptical local police sergeant (Laura Linney), he soon learns that many of the town's residents have been beset by bizarre events, including sightings of an eerie "moth-like" entity, similar to the one seen by his late wife. Investigating further and having his own terrifying encounters with the creature, he becomes obsessed with the idea that this supernatural being canpredict impending calamities and is trying to warn the town of one. Is this a psychic delusion brought on by his grief or can he convince the police sergeant that there's a tragedy that must be averted

Amazon's policy on these streaming video files is simply deplorable! You buy it, but you can't download it to your pc. And if the content provider ever decides to make it unavailable you lose it even though you paid for it. And Amazon gets to keep the money you paid since they declare themselves the winner. I'm also supposing that any videos you 'purchase' this way would automatically become unavailable to you if you cancel your prime membership. I'm glad I only purchased one video. If this is the future of home movie watching I'll have to bail out.
I really like the sound track. It does create a dark atmosphere right from the beginning. Good acting too, Richard Gere and Laura Linney support the movie very well.
It definitely feels creepy when you watch it a night with the lights dimmed. That being said, I was longing for more. At the beginning, there are a few sightings of the mothman, but past the second half of the movie, the pace slows down and you somehow feel that there will not be anything scarier, and most action focuses around weird phone calls. We receive no explanations about the mothman's intentions, or why he talks to a few select people. Some camera shots zoom in from space on the small village, but I am not sure whether they represent the mothman's view or not.
Right close to the end the pace accelerates again toward an intense climax. I did enjoy the ending. It explained a strange dream that the local cop described.
All in all, not bad a movie at all, but I am not sure whether it should be categorized as a "horror" movie. I also wished there was more of a story instead of loose sightings and phone calls which don't really feel connected.
