The fumes of the dead are in the air like poison. The plague, more cruel and more pitiless than war, descended upon us. A pestilence, that would leave half of our kingdom dead. Where did it come from? What carried its germ. The priests told us it was God's punishment. For what sin? What commandment must we break that could earn this? No, we knew the truth. This was not God's work, but devilry. Or witchcraft. But our task, to hunt down a demon, was God's cure.

The movie did a good job in showing the good and bad sides of human nature.
It is dark n brutal with solid themes. Some may complain about the lack of gore but they r missing the underlying meaning of this film.
Sean Bean n Eddie Redmayne did a good job. Carice van Houten is illecebrous in this film.
The locations r appropriately beautiful, sinister, foggy and ancient all at the same time.
As a viewer I genuinely got transported to the medieval time. While viewing this, The Name of the Rose came to my mind.
Have enjoyed Christopher Smith's Traingle, Creep n Severance.
