Product Description

Product Description

Fresh from seminary school, a new Reverend arrives at his first parish - a small chapel in an apparently idyllic country village. But something sinister lurks beneath the surface, and late one night it comes to his door in the guise of a frightened little girl… Waking the next morning with a bloody bite, insatiable hunger and no sign of the girl, the Reverend sets out on his mission.
With striking visuals from one of Britain's rising directors and a stellar cast of horror legends (Rutger Hauer) and Brit heroes (Shane Richie, Tamer Hassan), packed with action sequences, gore, vampires and chicks and an original story loosely based on the Biblical book of Job, The Reverend promises to leave you thirsty for more...

Hard to review this without giving some of the story - but no ending spoiler

Maybe its my hearing but the start was a bit difficult to hear. Quite clearly A man in a dark suit (after a taxi ride where he gives a beautiful girl a mission), walks in to (no not a bar) a religious looking place - how I would imagine some grand foyer in the Vatican - here, priests with swords turn block him and protect some big wig. It wasn't clear to me who was good or bad at this point but they strike up a deal apparently to test the 'virtue of a good man'. Queue the rest of the story.

A new reverend arrives at a small village - he is young and charming - after his first evening sermon the beautiful woman from the taxi knocks on his door they chat and when she can't seduce him she bites his neck. the rest of the story although predictablish is done with fair aplomb. A series of well crafted scenes lay the story which reveals at a reasonable pace all wrapped in the reverends conflict.

There are the usual array of bad guys and one or two characters you aren't sure about so that's done well.

With the exception of the one character who quite obviously is a slime ball from the get go even though he's putting up a good show of being concerned.

All in all it builds to a an acceptable finale. initially I was enamoured of the ending thinking it a bit rushed, whereas in fact the story was told and all that remained was to actually end it with a bit of nicety and tie up a few loose ends.

Is it believable - well of course not. It's not meant to be. As I understand it its an adaptation of a comic book - I forget the modern term form them something like graphic novels or some such.

In the 30 years since I began renting or buying films I have only ever turned off one film without watching it to the end ,this one makes it two.
At 47 minutes I heard probably the 50th F-word,the acting was terrible and the budget was more than likely to have been only slightly more than the 75p I parted with to buy it.
On the back cover it said "the best British horror since hammer-9/10"',for a holy themed film that was blasphemous and haunted digital magazine should be ashamed of its self for saying it.
Why oh why has RUTGER HAUER let his acting ability be used to promote this pile of utter SH-ONE-T is beyond me,it's got to say something when even the lady playing the church organist is a better thespian than the main star of the film Stuart Brennan.
I've only given this film one star because there isn't a section to give I no stars whatsoever which is what it deserves.
If you see this in a shop for under a pound do your self a favour and nip next door and buy your self a mars bar instead it's much more satisfying.

Some low budget films manage to pull off unexpected success through a combination of charm and ingenuity- others, particularly for some reason 21st century British horror films- don't, and The Reverend is most certainly one of those.

How Rutger Hauer, Tamer Hassan and even Shane Ritchie got roped into this ridiculous cinematic outing is beyond me; I can only assume it was as a favour to the director or whatever, rather than for the money as the budget appears to be non-existent[don't be fooled by the billing either: Hauer and Ritchie only play short cameo roles].

So not even so bad it's good. The premise- a vicar is put through the trials of Job and [somehow] turns into a sort of vampire without the fangs- is daft but, one imagines, still with some potential in another film maker's hands... but not this one. In fact this film is almost as bad as The Wicker Tree, another recent low point in British horror. Thank God British horror-thrillers such as Eden Lake and The Reeds are keeping the flag flying.

So two stars instead of one, purely for the fact I watched it all the way through without reaching for the off buton, and for the only high point of the film, Shane Ritchie's five minute slot as a coke-fiend pimp, which actually is rather good :)

I'm a fan of Rutger Hauer, so imagine my disappointment when the man blazoned across the cover only appears for about a minute at the start. Another budget movie that hasn't exploited its potential.. the acting is questionable, the direction poor. Nothing really seems to happen.. there's no climax.. a bunch of bad people get bumped off and, once bitten by our vampire hero, burst into dodgy looking flames and vanish.. what? The opening credit sequence also tells the ENTIRE story. Watch the opening credits, bish bash bosh, save 90 minutes of your life.

How anyone can award this movie 5-stars is bizarre. To me, 5-star films are few and far between and are reserved for cinematic excellence. The concept of excellence, can in no sane world, be attributed to this movie...the word adequate is nearer the mark.

If movies were cars, far from being a brand new, top of the range BMW 7 series, the Reverend would be an 8 yr old Fiat Panda with a dodgy clutch.....and like the Panda, the movie has trouble getting out of second gear. Watch once and then give it away. Pay no more than £1.50 for the movie (and that includes P&P).
