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.

The story is basically ridiculous, it's scary but kinda annoying..

Finally I have seen a film that all my friends here on Flixster have watched. I think I am rating it a little higher then most of my friends, but I for one did enjoy this movie, I am not sure if its because I have spent time down in Louisiana or the fact that I like the bayou, or the fact that the little twist at the end got me. Most films I can figure out but this one GOT ME. Enough said you have to watch it to figure that out. The plague's really caught my interest, the river of blood, the frogs falling out of the sky, which no one seem to bring up, they just brought up dead frogs. Idis Elba played an excellent part, He was better in the HBO Series the Wire. oh by the way I am one of those religious freaks but I do enjoy horror and everything else I watch. I have to give this one a 4 stars and I will add it to my collection.

It's hard to put my finger on what's wrong with this movie, but there seems to be something a little off. Which is a shame, because the idea behind it is a pretty good one, really. An ex-theist has dedicated her life to debunking religious superstition and phenomena and comes upon a town where apparently the ten plagues are apparently afflicting the area. I like the whole Rosemary's Baby/Wicker Man element to this film, but I think that the effects and character designs weight down this movie and lend it an inescapable ugliness. The performances by the actors are also a little off-putting, making an otherwise interesting story seem cheesy. This movie does succeed however in being relatively scary, even for a rather jaded horror fan.
