One late night while driving through West Virginia, John and Mary Klein (Richard Gere and Debra Messing) swerve to avoid an unidentified object and crash.  The husband and wife survive the accident, but Mary suffers from severe head injuries.  A doctor's examination reveals that she has an unexplainable inoperable brain tumor, and dies months later.


But before she perished Mary drew a strange fly-like creature for John, and claimed that she saw it before the collision.  A couple years afterward John accidentally drives through the same town, but this time stops to investigate his wife's claim.  What he unearths is unsettling.


The Mothman Prophecies was a commercial success, earning $54 million at the box office.
