JohnF.Jul 31, 2007Very good movie and the ending was very good and not what I expected.
SamF.Apr 9, 2007I actually Liked this movie, but can see why it got a low rating. It takes you on an apocalyptic joyride counting down the 10 plagues hitting a town called Haven. As the movie centers on a young girl who the townspeople are bent on blaming. The movie has its scary moments, and does not really give you time to get bored. The last half hour is really where it picks up and without any spoilers//I'll say its a very surprise ending. Not the greatest movie ever but certainly not the worst.… Expand
BecaH.Apr 28, 2007This movie wasn't the worst by far. It had it's parts where they just made you jump. I really enjoyed the movie.
AllmightyVoiceApr 4, 2007Swank does her best with material that would've barely made it as an episode of "The X Files". She's a scientist bent on debunking claims of religious miracles, who finds herself and her partner summoned to a Louisiana backwoods backwater to investigate incidents that suggest the Old Testatment Biblical plaques have returned. More supernatural than straight-up horror, there's nothing new here for fans of either genre. For die-hard Swank fans only.… Expand
AlexR.Jun 27, 2007Very disappointing. I thought that they could have done way more with the material.
ChadS.Apr 15, 2007"It's holy blood," insists a baying true believer in Alejandro Jodorowsky's "Santa Sangre", but the indoor pool of red water that belongs to a pagan cult, is in actuality, paint. The church probably smells like a hardware store, but the cultists have been brainwashed from the ability to bestow objectivity towards the empirical fact that their noses, in all likelihood, detect a whiff of iron. In "The Reaping", Katherine(Hilary Swank) and Ben(Idris Elba) must've been holding their breath while they collected water samples from the river. Katherine actually looks surprised when the lab results turn up blood, undiluted(not traces of) human blood. If this was an episode of "The X-Files"(which "The Reaping" bears more than a passing resemblance to), Mulder(Ben is his evangelical equivalent) would argue with barely-restrained exasperation, "But Scully(Katherine, the skeptic and atheist), can't you smell it?" The scientist would argue, "So where are the flies?" Good question. "The Reaping" forgot the flies, but it surely didn't forget the locusts.… Expand
Jun 12, 2011I'm not really sure why I didn't like this movie. The acting was solid and the story flowed very well. There was just something about this movie that rubbed me the wrong way. I think that was the fact I figured out the twist ending very early in the movie. Overall this movie is probably worth a watch if nothing else then just to say you watched it, but I don't think it's going to stick with you very long after that.… Expand
