The Reaping Review:

This latest horror film by director Stephen Hopkins (A Nightmare on Elm Street 5, Predator 2) is a highly overlooked one. But I take it as my crusade to promote it as what it is, a surprisingly great movie!

Even if the story is nothing new, for there are many films inspired by the 10 plagues (The Abominable Dr. Phibes, The Mummy, etc.), it ends up being a very original film. Discovering each new plague is a lot of fun. The story is complex and suspenseful, with lots of interesting characters and a very powerful ending. With its great action scenes and its twisted plot, The Reaping kept reminding me of the fun I had the first time I watched Silent Hill. If you liked the later, follow my advice and watch this one!

Of course, the special effects and the directing are not perfect, but overall I found this movie very convincing. Most importantly, it delivers its share of high-quality horror scenes.

Thereee even is a moral to the movie that makes it quite meaningful. A great pick!
