Thousands of years ago there was a series of bizarre occurrences that many believed to have been the Ten Biblical Plagues. No one thought they could happen again. Until now.
One of the surprising ingredients of this movie is the way the director plays with the audience. We are taken, very gradually, from a rational world governed by science and common consensus, to a relentlessly mounting and finally overwhelming onslaught of fire and brimstone. The film exploits our own many preconceptions about Bible thumpers, southern Hillbillies, priests and racism to scare the living crap out of us. And underneath there is a kind of subliminal tongue in cheek humor, that sneers at us in the ironic twist ending. A definite must see, except for the faint of heart.
