Prophecy (1979, dir. John Frankenheimer)

A doctor investigating environmental harm in Maine finds that pollution is causing animal mutations. Daft, naive, though well-meaning studio eco-horror juggling post-Jaws monster mayhem, evil corporations, First Peoples legends, white saviour storytelling, and some fun effects and stunt work. A big ol’ mess.

Here’s the trailer.
