Prophcey came on the Sci-Fi Channel about a couple of years ago and someone I know taped it me as I don't get that channel. I quite enjoyed this movie.
In a scenic forest in Maine, a local paper mill which is dumping mercury in a lake causes the local wildlife to grow into giants and mutate. We get to see a raccoon acting wildly, a giant salmon, giant tadpole, a pair of rather ugly looking mutant bear cubs and, best of all, a huge mutated bear that is going on the rampage killing and eating people, including the local sheriff and a family of natives.
Prophcey contains some great scenery and was actually filmed in British Columbia despite the story being in Maine.
I'm not too familiar with any of the cast, which is lead by Robert Foxworth, Talia Shire and Richard Dysart.
Prophecy is worth viewing. A treat.
Rating: 3 stars out of 5.
