Black Death Is Right Posted by: from: Cincinnati, Ohio on Black Death is a very proper title for this film. Few films can equal the dark world this film takes place in, and unlike horror films which feature killers such as Freddie Kruger or alien monstrosities, the true horror of this film is that it is rooted in fact rather than fiction. I never watch thrillers or horror films, but if I do, it is to remind me of why I do not watch them. After viewing the trailer for this film, I was torn. On one hand, it could be a cold blooded thriller, but on the other, it could be a good, dark film. It turns out to be the latter. While it is very gruesome, it points out that the most horrible atrocities are not seen on the silver screen committed by fictional characters or monsters, but rather found in history committed by very real people. If we truly want to scare ourselves, we need not delve into an imaginary world, but rather the world around us. As alluded to by its title, the film takes place in Fourteenth-century England during the Black Plague. The Black Plague killed roughly half of the people in Europe at the time. No human can say that this is not a horrific event, but I believe the acts of the people at the time to be even more horrific. This is the dark Middle Age we all know, but may not realize how truly dark it was. Women were commonly accused of being witches and burned at the stake, and those who opposed the church were tortured and killed. This is the plot of the film. A group of soldiers are sent by the church to investigate a small town for two reasons, to discover why they do not suffer from the Black Plague, and also to search out any heretics of the church and bring them back for torture. The Middle Age was a horrific time period to live in with just the Plague alone, but with the ignorant “educated” people, it became an unimaginable nightmarish world by today's standards. The film displays the ignorance of humanity by showing that both factions in the film are so blinded by their stubbornness that neither side can live in peace. This is only the primary theme of the film as I see it, and there are others hidden within it. If you have the stomach for it, you must see this film.

A slow-simmering underrated flick Posted by: from: Florida on Not that well known, Black Death gives us the always terrific Sean Bean as a righteous avenger in a world falling apart around him. Definitely worth checking out.
