Black Death

Black Death(2011)

Highly stylized medieval thriller with long pauses for reflections on god's cruelty and evil interspersed between moments of pretty decent action. Sean bean is great as ever, but the rest of the cast seems to be a bunch of interchangable no-names (except for Eddie Redmayne, a highly professional no-name). It wasn't anything super-special, but it did manage to hook me early and keep me tangled in its lines with a "question what's real" ending and a great villain/villainess. Whether the reason for the plot is chance, luck, or something more sinister, it's still definitely worth a view for those looking for a new take on the old creep-'em-out.
