The Reckoning


SYNOPSIS

Set against the backdrop of the Great Plague and subsequent witch-hunts against women, Grace Haverstock must grapple with the tragic untimely death of her husband Joseph, in a society completely consumed by fear and death. Because she rejects her landlord Squire Pendleton’s advances, she is falsely accused of being a witch and thrown in jail for a crime she didn’t commit.

Grace must endure physical persecution at the hands of England’s most ruthless witch-hunter Judge Moorcroft and face her own inner demons as the Devil himself starts to work his way into her mind.


REVIEWS

  • Badfeelingmag.com: gorehounds will love some of the kills on display, and Marshall provides some effective jump scares.
  • Bloody-disgusting.com: Looks good and is shot well, particularly for audiences with an affinity for torture.
  • Britflicks.com: A proper rip, roaring yarn about witchfinder era Britain that is best when the fighting is in full flow or skulls are being squashed under cartwheels.
  • Cgmbacklot.com: Great performances across the board.
  • Entertainment-focus.com: A return to form for acclaimed film-maker Neil Marshall. It’s a solid pot-boiler that’s in no rush to reveal its hand early so you do have to be patient as the plot slowly unravels.
  • Fathersonholygore.com: The story's a fresh one that starts off running and never slows down until the credits roll. Easily one of the best witch hunt films there's been.
  • Filmpulse.net: A compelling one that accurately shows the horrific results of rumor and mass panic.
  • Filmschoolrejects.com: An attractive tale about ugly times and deeds.
  • Horrorcultfilms.co.uk: Looks and sounds great.
  • Ihorror.com: Solid performances and a thoughtfully constructed, historically relevant story that rings a bit too true at the present moment.
  • Moviemovesme.com: An entertaining and terrifying journey.
  • Skonmovies.com: A well-made film.
  • Johnnyalucard.com: An old-fashioned period melodrama (when was the last time you saw a film with a wicked squire), torture-fetish grand guignol (authentic and inauthentic witch-finding devices alike are used on innocents), and hallucinatory horror movie.
  • Tiltmagazine.net: It’s fun. There’s blood and fire, a ludicrous explosion, and all the mayhem you’d expect from a Neil Marshall flick.
