Product Description

Product Description

Fire and brimstone gothic chiller set in the US bible belt. Professional sceptic of unexplained phenomena, Katherine Winter (Hilary Swank), is called in to investigate when a series of biblical plagues beset a small southern town. Thinking at first that she'll easily find human evidence in the occurrences, she soon comes to realise that there are some things that can't be explained away.

Synopsis

Katherine Winter specialises in disproving miracles around the world, and is convinced that science has an answer for anything. When she’s asked to investigate a series of strange events in a small USA town she begins to suspect that there might be something beyond science causing the events.

In this 2007 supernatural horror thriller Katherine Winter (Hilary Swank) has lost her faith following the death of her daughter, now, with colleague Ben (Idris Elba) they investigate claims of miracles. When Katherine is asked to find out why Haven's river has turned red. The locals tell her it is a biblical plague caused by 11 year old Loren McConnell (AnnaSophia Robb), who they believe killed her older brother in the river. The pair soon head for the river, but exactly what will they discover?
This starts out being scientific but soon gets creepy becoming basically a modern take on the biblical plagues, but given a supernatural twist. If you can accept the pseudo religious prophesising and enter into the story, then there is actually very little to fault in this. The photography, sets, sound and acting are all very good and there are some awesome special effect to boot.
The single disc opens to a 4 screen 53 language choice [ UK being no 52!] before playing 2 trailers/ads then offers play, scene selection, special features [science of 10 plagues, characters, a place called haven, the reaping;the seventh plague] and languages [English Italian, English narration, subtitles 5 languages including English and Italian]. Rated 15 this has 1 use of the ‘F’ word but the few remaining ones are mild. Nudity is indistinct and fleeting but most of the film has intense scenes, many being of a frightening nature. For late evening or night-time viewing this is a recommended view, provided you can handle the subject matter.

This is a pretty good film, a very stylish horror/thriller with neat special effects. It could almost pass for an extended X-Files episode. A small town contacts a woman who works disproving various religious omens, which she finds out all have a scientific explanation. After losing her faith many years before she buts a lot of effort in to disproving any signs of religious miracles all over the world. However this time she may have her work cut out as one small town starts to receive the biblical plaque one by one, can she explain this or do anything about it?
It has a good story and some good acting talent on show, the effects especially for the plaques are very well done. It does start a little slow but it soon builds up to a great ending with a few twists along the way. Perfect for an evenings entertainment. Overall score 7/10.

Great story and has a few scary moments. Visuals excellent. Good casting and acting, although why our heroine has to be constantly showing her cleavage smacks a bit of misplaced glamour. The eye candy is not needed to enhance the character or story. Elements of The Omen (including the crazed priest) are evident, but the film does provide a refreshing twist on the genre. Plenty of back story helps flesh out the main character. Some dark scenes, so best watched in the dark....

Not really recommended for watching before bed ;)

"The Reaping" is supposed to be this year's entry into the horror/thriller/lost faith genre, but doesn't quite know where to go. Should it be just a horror flick? No. How about a "lost faith" story? Nope. But it does qualify for being a thriller, in my opinion. The Reaping is as formulaic as it may be; it's still fun to watch. Hilary Swank finally looks feminine despite portraying yet another fearless female. She plays Katherine Winter, an ex-woman of the cloth who turned her back on the Church after suffering personal tragedy, and now spends her time as a professor debunking miracles as myths.

But she runs out of plausible explanations when what appears to be the Bible's Ten Plagues begin to afflict a small town and she is called there to help its citizens. They blame a young girl, Loren McConnell (played frighteningly well by AnnaSophia Robb), whom they accuse of having killed her brother in a river that has now turned into blood, the first plague. Katherine encounters her several times and has trouble getting into an objective frame of mind as she likens Loren, no matter how creepy looking she is, to her own daughter.

During the time I was watching this I notice that some of the plagues could have used a scarier execution. Like, when the frogs fell out of the sky, they were only a few, and oddly, none fell on the characters, just around them. That would have been a perfect eww-gross opportunity. Also, with the frequent references to the eerie wind chimes that everyone in the town seemed to have, I kept expecting to see some connection in the end but it was unsatisfying a mere misdirection. Hilary Swank is a phenomenal actress, there is no question, and she deserves far greater than her role as Katherine Winter gives her to work with.

All the elements are there and it should be a good film but there is no scare and no real tension. I think this is to do with the sound. The music is disembodied and detached from the action. The actors say their lines but they don't feel as if they are talking to each other. The attempts to scare you by deafening crash bang wallops are just annoying.. It all detracts from any sense of atmosphere. Too disjointed. Badly edited.
A shame because the acting is good. The effects are good. The intentions were good. In different hands..... ?
