Shudder has released a new trailer for its upcoming supernatural horror thriller The Reckoning, the story of which is set “around the witch hunts and the great plague in England in 1665.”
The film comes from director Neil Marshall (The Descent, Dog Soldiers, Centurion), and it actually looks like an interesting new movie that’s worth checking out. I like the concept and setting of the story, and I’ve enjoyed what I’ve seen from the footage that’s been shared so far.
The film stars Charlotte Kirk (Ocean’s 8, First Kill) as a character named Grace Haverstock, who, after “losing her husband during the Great Plague, is unjustly accused of being a witch and placed in the custody of England’s most ruthless witch-hunter, Judge Moorcroft (Sean Pertwee). Forced to endure physical and emotional torture while steadfastly maintaining her innocence, Grace must face her own inner demons as the Devil himself starts to work his way into her mind.”
The movie will be released on Shudder on May 13th.
