Goofs

When Katherine is giving Ben her list of causes for the 10 plagues, she states that locusts would have been blown into Cairo. The plagues took place around 1400BC, but Cairo didn't exist until 969AD, and didn't become the capital until 1168-1169AD. She should have used Thebes as the reference city since it did exist then, and was Egypt's capital. See more »

Good thriller is perfect with a bag of popcorn, a soda and rainy Sunday afternoon
8 April 2007 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

Well I'm shocked-this is a pretty good little thriller.

Hillary Swank is an ex-missionary turned scientist and debunker, she's called into investigate a small town in the deep South where the river has turned red or as some suspect to blood. this is followed in close order by other Biblical plagues. They all seem to to be tied to a young girl living in the woods.

Creepy little movie thats better than many recent Bible thrillers. Here we start off with science and find as time goes on that it can't explain whats going on. well acted with a couple of nice set pieces this is a movie that works mostly by simple visualization, we see a red river, we see flies, we see frogs. except for a plague of locusts and some fire in the sky what we see out side of dreams is all simple effects given weight by the sincerity of the script and the performances. This is a film where the classic idea of its all better in the mind works to great effect with just a small push.

Is it a great film? No, but its a good one. Its the sort of thing you sit and watch on a Saturday night with a big bag of popcorn and a soda. Is it worth paying ten bucks in the theater for? I doubt it but on a rainy Sunday afternoon it may fit the bill on the bargain priced matinée. (Certainly worth a rental) Somewhere between six and seven out of ten.
