The Reaping ★½ 2007 (R)
Southern gothic revisits the 10 plagues from the book of Exodus that are being felt in the Louisiana bayou town of Haven. Having lost her own faith, professor Katherine Winter (Swank), now a professional debunker of alleged miracles and religious phenomena, is called in to offer scientific explanations. Of course, she can't. CGI's decent, Swank's stoic, but the story is so much familiar hooey (and not very scary).98m/C DVD, Bluray Disc, HD DVD .
