Fear spreads like the plague.
Bloody Disgusting has an exclusive look at Neil Marshall’s (Dog Soldiers, The Descent, Doomsday, Hellboy) latest genre offering, The Reckoning, a period horror film set against the backdrop of the Great Plague that takes place during the witch hunts in 17th century England.
In the film, “After losing her husband during the Great Plague, Grace Haverstock (Charlotte Kirk) is unjustly accused of being a witch and placed in the custody of England’s most ruthless witch-hunter, Judge Moorcroft (Sean Pertwee). Forced to endure physical and emotional torture while steadfastly maintaining her innocence, Grace must face her own inner demons as the Devil himself starts to work his way into her mind.”
In the clip, Grace Haverstock is attacked by several masked men who accuse her of being a witch. She grabs her baby and attempts to hide… but they find her.
The Reckoning opens in limited theaters and on VOD platforms this Friday, February 5.
