The movie takes place in Perseverance, Kansas; a town plagued by drought and the inability to make rain barrels. The movie jumps to 3 different time frames, 1866 (David Carradine), 1956 (Dee Wallace), and present day. The people are cursed by "the man (Indian) in the top hat" with hereditary severe plaque psoriasis, that can only be cured by exposure to a special annual rain (Hence the 2009 title "The Rain"). This forces young girls to doff their clothes and go out into the rain. (nudity) Now the real problem is to ensure that the rain happens. This requires "sacrifice" on the part of the community. Sasha Higgins plays our mousy heroine in need of rain water and acting lessons.

Note: In the beginning a child is tied to an X frame and has his neck chewed on. His name is Samuel Mueller. Later in the movie his name is Simon Wheeler. OOPS!

There's not much to say about this movie except to ask yourself what just happened and where'd I put those tylenol. The story line bounces around between the past, the even further past and present day so much your left wondering where you are. Aside from a little bit of gore this movie really isnt worth the money. P.S may I have that two hours of my life back please?

This movie tells the story of a family curse that requires certain ceremonial actions to mitigate the curse's effects. While the concept is good, the execution is flawed. Throughout, the story is told with respect to the family as it existed in the late 1800s, the 1950s, and modern day. The problem is that the film constantly jumps back and forth between each of those periods, which results in the story feeling constantly interrupted in a way that minimizes any horror/atmosphere that might have been developed. Further, even without the jumpy interruptions, the actual horror elements are just not that impressive. Its more of a "things happen, so what" kind of film, rather than one that grabs you and keeps you on the edge of your seat. The problem is further exacerbated by some pitiful acting, primarily on the part of a lead female actress. She just has this constant look of numb terror that gets old, and in a cry wolf kind of way, also minimizes your reaction to her shock when it actually happens. On the other side, production values are high, so if you end up watching, it won't be your worst experience, even at 2 long hours. Worth a rental at best.

I expected a kind of formulaic tale of human sacrifice, another of those been-there-done-that B movies that borrow heavily from Harvest Home and/or Children of the Corn. This one, however, managed to be different. This movie covers a curse that spans three separate time periods -- three separate stories. None of the stories turn out as you'd expect and the movie doesn't have the formulaic leave-it-hanging ending, either, thank goodness. It did leave some questions unanswered, some plot holes unpatched, but my only real gripe is that the makeup in places is unconvincing. But the acting was pretty decent, it had genuine creepiness and atmospheric horror (mostly lacking in today's gorefests, which seem to rely on special effects at the expense of expendable minor things like plot and acting). Veteran actors Richard Lynch, Dee Wallace Stone and David Carradine did fine, but their parts were relatively minor, and the young actors carried the movie pretty well. I'd call this head and shoulders above your usual direct-to-video horror fare.

great movie! doug schulze is a great director. doug showed a great ability to tell a story of three different generations and keep the audiance glued to their seats. This is his 3rd movie (and working on 4th). It is time he is recognized as a great director on the global level. I bought a few copies of this movie from Amazon so that I can also give some to friends and family as gifts.

When the drought-stricken farming community of Perseverance resorts to human sacrifice to bring healing rains to their land, a terrible curse is unleashed that haunts their bloodlines for generations. More than a century later, one of their descendents is struck by a horrible affliction and must commit an unspeakable act of murder to remove the curse once and for all.

I read a review that said that the movie was hard to follow & confusing. I just watched it & disagree. There are a couple of spots that could have been done a little better but it was not hard to understand or follow. The entire movie for the most part made perfect sense. It was spooky & scary at times.

It's a beautifully shot and composed indie horror film which strays from the standard, boring slasher and/or torture porn elements so prevelant in the genre and actually delivers a story! With characters and plot!

It is at the end of the day a low budget film so it's not perfect but it's still a lot better than most of the crap released direct to dvd in order to keep a steady stream of new arrivals on the shelves.

Best Parts: the cinematography, score, production design and Richard Lynch and Ellen Sandweiss' acting

Least Impressive Parts: Some of the CG effects aren't great, story is kinda slow and some of the other acting is a bit stiff

Overall it has some flaws but makes up for them by being a tremendously ambitious and interesting classic style horror film.
