From the look of **************** like some and one of the books that I have read back in the early 70s in high school, the story line fits the time period.

Engaging, well directed medieval flick with strong performances, a genuinely chilling atmosphere and an unusually thoughtful script.

Village Voice
Screenwriter Dario Poloni and director Christopher Smith provide enough sword-and-sorcery hoo-ha to please the "Lord of the Rings" demographic, but the movie's real coup is in how it repeatedly shifts our allegiance from Christians to pagans. Full Review

Black Death embraces its horror roots with ample bloodshed, at which point the silly costumes and anachronistic dialogue no longer seem so absurd. Full Review

The New York Times
Here, excessive piety and rampant paganism are equally malevolent forces, the film's baleful view of human nature mirrored in Sebastian Edschmid's swampy photography. As is emphasized in a nicely consistent coda, the Lord's side and the right side are not necessarily one and the same. Full Review

With unexpected supernatural restraint, the movie approaches a religious parable; am I being unfair in wishing it had a touch more apocalyptic hysteria to it? Full Review

Horror film buffs like to giggle as much as scream but there're no giggles here. Full Review
