Neil Marshall is a director that I’m always going to look at. His work on Dog Soldiers and The Descent is masterful. The trailer for his latest film The Reckoning which won an iHorror Award, is more greatness from the director.
This time around Marshall takes on the world of plagues and witches and if you think the trailer looks good, you aren’t wrong.
The official synopsis for The Reckoning goes like this:
“Set against the backdrop of the Great Plague and subsequent witch-hunts against women, Grace Haverstock (Charlotte Kirk) must grapple with the tragic untimely death of her husband Joseph (Joe Anderson) in a society completely consumed by fear and death. Because she rejects her landlord Squire Pendleton’s (Steven Waddington) advances, she is falsely accused of being a witch and thrown in jail for a crime she didn’t commit. Grace must endure physical persecution at the hands of England’s most ruthless witch-hunter Judge Moorcroft (Sean Pertwee) and face her own inner demons as the Devil himself starts to work his way into her mind.“
The Reckoning is due out sometime early next year.
