YMMV / Prophecy

  • Anvilicious: Possibly the preachiest monster movie ever made. Not only the Green Aesop about pollution but abortion, urban squalor, Indian rights and corporate greed are all invoked at various points.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: A certain pair; Mr. Stone and Mr. Parker, must have seen this film because Katadin looks very familiar. Or maybe it has an animated cousin.
  • Narm:
    • The exploding sleeping bag!
    • Likewise, the sudden attacks by various mercury-crazed animals earlier in the film (most notably the fireplace raccoon) are more likely to provoke guffaws than terror.
    • The overblown creepy music when we first see the paper mill almost sounds like a parody.
  • Nausea Fuel: The mutant bear was so absolutely revolting it had people puking in the theaters.
  • Special Effects Failure: The bear looks good in certain closeups and distant shots. More direct shots, however, are about as convincing as a Power Rangers monster.
