Trivia

There was active discussions about changing the title to "Come and See". Particularly when some poster artwork came back from China with Dennis Quaid and Ziyi Zhang sitting on a horse - a literal interpretation of the title Horsemen (2009). See more »

Goofs

In attempting to identify the horsemen with their colors, Dennis Quaid's character makes a mistake. In Kristin's cell he determines that Garrison is Pestilence when in actuality, Garrison is Famine. See more »

The Perfect Mood
15 May 2009 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

I don't know about you, but when I sit down to watch a horror film, I don't expect to be blown away. My expectation is only to be engaged, kept in suspense, and hopefully scared out of my mind (this last one being of the rarest variety).

This movie lived up to my expectations in all the important ways. My curiosity was jump started in the first scene, and the somber, introspective mood of the story line, spiked with horrific scenarios and sickening plot twists, was exactly what I hoped.

The final twist was too easily guessed, of course, but it didn't take away from the finale - a powerfully emotional scene portrayed very convincingly by Dennis Quaid, who brought his usual energy and charisma to the role.

If you're looking for a quality horror flick or suspense thriller, this one is well worth your while!
