John Frankenheimer directed some outstanding, award-winning films in his time, including Birdman of Alcatraz, The Manchurian Candidate and French Connection II – but did you know that he also helmed a graphically violent creature feature?
In 1979's Prophecy, a couple researching the impact of the lumber industry on the environment in Maine investigate a series of bizarre, grisly deaths. Let's cut to the chase, shall we: there's a mutant grizzly bear out there.
A favourite of Quentin Tarantino, who's said “I have a soft spot in my heart for this stupid-ass movie”, Prophecy was recently released on Blu-ray in the UK for the first time. Extras include two commentary tracks and new interviews with the screenwriter and the guy in the bear suit. We have five copies to give away. To put your name in the hat for the chance to win one, simply answer the question below.
PROPHECY, John Frankenheimer’s thrilling and unflinching creature feature, is OUT NOW on Blu-ray and can be purchased here.
