He lays the photos out on the floor and the burn marks form a cross with a hook at the bottom, the unmistakable emblem of '70s hard rockers Blue Oyster Cult. Hey, didn't they have a big hit called "(Don't Fear) the Reaping"?

At no time does director Stephen Hopkins give us reason to care.

Although terrible, this film does raise ... interesting questions: Why does Hollywood keep ripping off THE OMEN? Why would anyone continue hiring Stephen Hopkins to direct a movie? Why would two-time Oscar-winner Hilary Swank agre to be in this mess?

If The Reaping had been sown with fresher ideas, you might actually care if the devil went down to Georgia, er, Louisiana.

The cumulative effect is likely to make viewers weary, but not so weary that they can't manage a chuckle or two during the film's cheesed-out final minutes.

Is this movie a good old-fashioned good versus evil potboiler or a newfangled political statement about anti-intellectualism? The Reaping could have gone either way, but it did neither, and it did so spectacularly.

The most positive thing about The Reaping is that it isn't as big a waste of time as last year's Omen remake; it's 14 minutes shorter.

The impressive cast do their best to bring a sense of conviction to the piece, but it had to have been blind faith that brought them into such an unholy mess.

Between effects-shots is a whole movie of people discussing how fascinating things are.

If you had to choose between watching this and suffering boils, take the option which at least you can treat with a cream rather than years of expensive therapy

It's a sad state of affairs when the fit of Hilary Swank's casual slacks is more interesting than a plague of locusts.

... goes from barely tolerable to insufferable in the time it takes to unveil a stupid twist ending ...

Here, for all fans of the world's most pathetic movies, is an apocalyptically disastrous horror flick set in the Bible belt.

With a touch of X Files, a smattering of The Omen and perhaps a little too much hokiness, it's all agreeably daft fun.

The Reaping is frequently silly, occasionally cliched and slow to get going, but the acting is good and it rallies for an impressive climax.
