Worst: "Prophet's Prey"
HitFix's Grade: D+
Will it becoming to a theater near you? "Prophet's Prey" will air on Showtime.
Lowdown: I've been told "Prophet's Prey" plays better if you know absolutely nothing about Warren Jeffs and the FLDS. Apparently that makes it easier for you to accept that a cult/church with a 150 year history of keeping women essentially in subservience only become TRULY evil when one nefarious individual took over. And now there's only ongoing evil in the FLDS because Warren Jeffs is still controlling people from prison. Director Amy Berg, who had no trouble taking on institutional structures with "Deliver Us From Evil" and "West of Memphis" settles for an absurdly simplistic One Evil Man reduction here.
