Much to enjoy for Ricci fans and others!,
This review is from: The Gathering [DVD] (DVD)
The ever watchable Christina Ricci graces olde England with her presence in this eerie supernatural horror film set in darkest rural England. Though, initially, I thought we might be treated to some hoky "pagan rites" type plot line the story veers off in quite an original way to do with obscure, er...Christian rites and folklore...replete with quotations from apocryphal scripture. Whilst managing to avoid the equally hoky "good versus evil" scenario,the story does deal with the theological implications of human evil. Something like the Catholic horror films of Abel Ferrara mixed up with a bit of M.R. James...Worshippers at the shrine of the delectable Ricci will also be blessed...say no more...brethren...
