Sean Bean stars as Ulric in this horror-thriller. Ulric is a church-appointed knight in the age of the Bubonic Plague’s first wave who’s sent out to investigate rumors of a woman, Langiva(Carice van Houten), who can bring the dead back to life. They head out to find the village that has been untouched by the plague. A young monk, Osmund (Eddie Redmayne), is aiding Ulric on his quest to root out the necromancer — and to determine whether or not she has ties to Satan. (Note: Below is the Red Band (R-Rated) version of the trailer.)

Black Death is a dark horror/suspense movie wrapped up in a crusades era time period. Knights were devoted to the church and would follow orders to the death. This is a gory film, with some scenes that may be shocking for some. It shows the level of commitment of each of the team, including a young priest who is in way over his head. This is a nice period piece. The cinematography is good. The mist over the marsh gives it all a really creepy feeling. The lead, Sean Bean, is very good. His co-actors are also pretty good. All in all there’s a lot of gory action and suspense as we find out who is actually behind all this wickedness. This film is available for Netflix “Watch Instantly” and is a good time filler while waiting for next weeks DVD’s.
