Format: DVD
Considering the big critics' reviews of this film (which I almost let dissaude me from seeing it in the theatre), I thought it a very pleasant surprise.

Clearly hiring Swank blew the budget, but fortunately, she was fabulous as always (not just looking, but also acting) and carried the film through the drier parts (of which there were few).

On the other hand, the CGI left much to be desired and as to be expected, there's more than a heaping helpin' of it in this biblical plague flick. I guess it wouldn't be practical to dye an entire swamp red but the blatant phoniness of the water-into-blood scenes greatly diminished the awe effect. And the supernatural hellstorm at the end could've been footage ripped wholesale from My Science Project - cutting edge 20 years ago, but Flintstonic by today's standards. Yet, I didn't much care.

The screenplay was well-written and coherent (something that cannot be said of many recent entries in this genre) and even the now obligatory "twist" ending strengthened rather than detracted from the story.

As defined by my "time-check" count, this film pulled a strong zero. And whenever I can make it through 100 minutes of cinema without so much as glance at the watch, something's gotta be right. Not a fantastic film by most measures, the Reaping is nevertheless an entertaining way to spend a couple of hours.

A supernatural/otherworldy 'good vs. evil' horror movie in the general vein of The Exorcism of Emily Rose - Unrated (Special Edition)The Exorcist - The Complete Anthology (The Exorcist/ The Exorcist- Unrated/ The Exorcist II: The Heretic/ The Exorcist III/ The Exorcist: The Beginning/ The Exorcist: Dominion), "The Reaping" is an underated film, not as scary as 'Exorcist' or 'Emily Rose' but very good nonetheless, nowhere near as campy as its critics say. Its style moves closer at times to suspense thrillers than other movies of its type, and may open it up to be enjoyed by fans of that kind of movie as well as by horror fans.

Hillary Swank plays a former Christian aid worker turned ardent atheist; teaching at a university she now specializes in 'debunking' miracles and other paranormal phenomena. Having achieved some not in certain academic circles, she's contacted by a man on behalf of a small Southern bayou town where a host of ominous and apparantly supernatural events are taking place. Tensions are running high in the community, and the mayor and his colleagues really want for somebody to come in, find a scientific explanation for everything, and hopefully calm the townspeople down, some of whom are starting to think about taking matters into their own hands. What's happening in this little rural corner appears to be nothing less than the ten Biblical plagues re-occuring, and bearing the blame for this is a little girl who lives off in the swamp with her mother, and is believed by some to be evil incarnate.

"The Reaping" is for the most part a good supernatural/horror film..... That is until the last 20 minutes of the storyline went completely haywire and the over-the-top special effects & the "End of Days" type theme killed the movie.

The Pros: Hilary Swank does a fine acting job in this film. I also liked the initial theme of "The Reaping", where Swank's character, Katherine Winter, is a LSU theology professor who goes around debunking so called "religious phenomenon" with her partner as there is usually a scientific explanation(s) for the religious phenomenon being reported..... Hence, Swank's character along with the help of her partner are then able to debunk the "religious phenomenon". Then Swank's character along with her partner are called to the small town of Haven to solve a lot of inexplicable "religious phenomenon" that have the townsfolk upset. Just when you think that Swank's character along that of her partner are going to be able to debunk these "religious phenomenon" with scientific evidence, the complete reverse happens and we find that the "religious phenomenon" can not be debunked with scientific evidence.

The Cons: The last 20 minutes of "The Reaping" was bad. As I mentioned above, the storyline goes haywire towards the end and the special effects were way too over-the-top.

Many people were mixed on this film when it first came out. Some believed it was swankier than your average Omen. Others found it repugnant while there were people who viewed it as catnip for the religious zealots who get easily frothy-mouthed whenever their precious sermons from the Book of Leviticus get "defied" or just "disrespected" and stayed away as a result. Personally, I'm on the fence. A big reason why is something, let's just say, that makes it different from The Omen and The Exorcist. Anyway, the plot...... LSU Professor (originally UNC at Chapel Hill in the original script for this film) Katherine Winter has been quite busy in the skeptic business. Ever since she started, she's investigated 48 miraculous occurrences with 48 scientific explanations explaining away the religious phoneme. However, she and her assistant, Ben, are soon hired to solve a mystery down in Haven, Louisiana (originally set to take place in a small town in Connecticut in the mentioned script), where there are freaky occurrences that are frightening the believers down there. And why wouldn't they be? The occurrences are, after all, basing themselves off of the Ten Plagues God sent down onto the Pharaoh and his followers to let Moses and the God-worshipping slaves go. Understandably, Katherine, who is deep in atheism and deep into it like it's PTSD after the death of her husband and daughter (which she is most distraught about), is initially disbelieving that the occurrences are Biblical-related while Ben, who starts to get reduced to window dressing by the time the 2nd tribute to the 10 Plagues rolls around, immediately starts to view the events as Biblical related. Guess which of them is right.Read more ›
