It seems director Christopher Smith is destined to be a director of cult films. Of his last two movies, “Triangle” made it to DVD in the States, and his latest, the Sean Bean medieval horror/action movie “Black Death”, is still M.I.A. Hopefully we’ll see it soon Stateside. Until then, check out this red band trailer for the movie. Here’s hoping that last scene with Sean Bean (above) doesn’t, er, give away the film’s ending.
With Medieval England having fallen under the shadow of the Black Death, a young monk called Osmund (Eddie Redmayne) is charged with leading fearsome knight Ulric (Sean Bean) and his group of mercenaries to a remote marsh. Their quest is to hunt down a necromancer — someone able to bring the dead back to life. Torn between his love of God and the love of a young woman, Osmund discovers the necromancer, a mysterious beauty called Langiva (Carice van Houten). After Langiva reveals her Satanic identity and offers Osmund his hearts desire, the horror of his real journey begins.
Starring Sean Bean, Carice van Houten, Eddie Redmayne, Kimberley Nixon, David Warner, Tim McInnerny, John Lynch, Andy Nyman, Johnny Harris, Emun Elliott and directed by Christopher Smith.
