Rotten: From spooky prelude to investigative twaddle to surprise ending and double-surprise coda, it's as if director Stephen Hopkins is following the handbook of Satanic hooey.

Was expecting a far worse movie than I got with this one. Enjoyed it from beginning to end. A good supernatural flick with a lot of twists and turns. I kept thinking that i was right on the reveal but only part right. Good twist.

The reaping is a fairly decent film. It's not the type of film that keeps you guessing, as the film is pretty predictable from the get go. Hilary Swank prevents the film from being a boring film, and the film does have some pretty good special effects. A good enough film to be entertained, just don't expect anything spectacularly horrifying and great. The film though tense at times doesn't do anything new or that interesting to horrify. The film is decent, but lacks the intrigue to make this film truly memorable, with that in mind The Reaping is simply a film to watch when there's nothing good to watch. A well made film to say the least, The Reaping is simply put a film with minimal scares, and relies too often on special effects. In the end, it's simply an average film to watch.

The twist at the end was good. Overall the movie was okay.
