Hi Bryan Here…
The film “Black Death” has been around for a little while overseas, scaring people, and getting rave reviews so far. It is finally coming to theaters in the U.S. in acouple of weeks. March 11th to be exact. Also through Magnolia Films and Magnet Releasing, you can watch the film now On Demand.
This film stars Sean Bean (Lord of the Rings), Eddie Redmayne (The Other Boleyn Girl), and Carice Van Houten (Black Book). The film is directed by Christopher Smith who directed the British Horror Comedy, “Severance”.
The officialy synposis is:
The year is 1348. Europe has fallen under the shadow of the Black Death. As the plague decimates all in its path, fear and superstition are rife. In this apocalyptic environment, the church is losing its grip on the people. There are rumors of a village, hidden in marshland that the plague cannot reach. There is even talk of a necromancer who leads the village and is able to bring the dead back to life. Ulric (Sean Bean), a fearsome knight, is charged by the church to investigate these rumors. He enlists the guidance of a novice monk, Osmund (Eddie Redmayne) to lead him and his band of mercenary soldiers to the marshland, but Osmund has other motives for leaving his monastery. Their journey to the village and events that unfold take them into the heart of darkness and to horrors that will put Osmund’s faith in himself and his love for God to the ultimate test.
The film is getting excellent reviews being called “beautifully macabre, eerie, creepy, scary ass hell, and gritty.”
