Indie Trailer Sunday: Sean Bean in Red Band 'Black Death' Trailer
Repent. I'm not exactly sure why I chose to feature a bloody, red band trailer for a film called Black Death on the day after Christmas (aka Boxing Day in the UK, Canada, Australia), but it may have something to do with the lack of new worthwhile indie trailers out there. Anyway, below you'll find the red band for Triangle director Christopher Smith's medieval action-adventure horror film Black Death, starring Sean Bean as Ulric and Eddie Redmayne as Osmund, as well as Carice van Houten and David Warner. So if you want a brief escape from all the holiday cheer, then look no further, as this trailer is definitely not family friendly.
Watch the red band trailer for Christopher Smith's Black Death from Hulu:
Set in the 1300s during the first outbreak of bubonic plague in England, a fearsome knight (Bean) is tasked by the church with learning the truth about rumors of people being brought back to life in a small village.
Black Death is directed by up-and-coming British filmmaker Christopher Smith, of past horror flicks Creep, Severance and Triangle. The screenplay was written by Dario Poloni, of only the film Wilderness previously. This already opened in Europe, but Magnet Releasing is finally bringing Black Death to limited theaters on March 11th. It'll also be available on ALL On-Demand sites starting February 4th.

Watched this on DVD as it's been out here for a while. It has a 'Wickerman' feel to it, a sense of foreboding evil in somewhere very tranquil. It's a pretty good film and even though it's obviously low budget they achieve some good visuals and sets.

Pure and utter garbage

Reminiscent of the 'folk horror' movies of the 1970's. A solid 'b' movie.

Really bored me. My girlfriend is in to the setting and quite enjoyed it so if you like sean bean in medievil it's for you. How the hell is this not available in the US? More importantly how the hell is tangled still not out here in the UK.

It was definitely a weird one that film, pretty plodding, fairly gruesome and weirdly religious in a sort of demented way. It all seemed plausible though, at that time the church were killing women just for being outspoken in public, so the film makes sense. There are some good characters in it but mostly the acting is pretty pantolas.

I wasn't interested in this, but a few months ago, after a friend borrowed it, I decided to watch it too.. and I found it amazing. The music was the first thing that blew me away, shortly after the movie I bought the score to listen to. But the story was alot more interesting than I thought, and I ended up loving this. [omg - Sean Bean] Awesome work for a smaller budget film. (:
