The Reaping (2007)
"Thousands of years ago there was a series of bizarre occurrences that many believed to have been the Ten Biblical Plagues. No one thought they could happen again. Until now. "A former Christian missionary, who specializes in debunking religious phenomena, investigates a small town which seems to be suffering from the 10 biblical plagues.
Good thriller is perfect with a bag of popcorn, a soda and rainy Sunday afternoon
Well I'm shocked-this is a pretty good little thriller.
Hillary Swank is an ex-missionary turned scientist and debunker, she's
called into investigate a small town in the deep South where the river
has turned red or as some suspect to blood. this is followed in close
order by other Biblical plagues. They all seem to to be tied to a young
girl living in the woods.
Creepy little movie thats better than many recent Bible thrillers. Here
we start off with science and find as time goes on that it can't
explain whats going on. well acted with a couple of nice set pieces
this is a movie that works mostly by simple visualization, we see a red
river, we see flies, we see frogs. except for a plague of locusts and
some fire in the sky what we see out side of dreams is all simple
effects given weight by the sincerity of the script and the
performances. This is a film where the classic idea of its all better
in the mind works to great effect with just a small push.
Is it a great film? No, but its a good one. Its the sort of thing you
sit and watch on a Saturday night with a big bag of popcorn and a soda.
Is it worth paying ten bucks in the theater for? I doubt it but on a
rainy Sunday afternoon it may fit the bill on the bargain priced
matinée. (Certainly worth a rental) Somewhere between six and seven out
