The Reaping (Thriller 2007)

I usually don't watch thrillers because they primarily depend on camera work and sound to get the "jump" on audiences. It's entertaining if you're making a thrill ride at a theme park, but for a movie? Who really wants to be "surprised" every 10 minutes? It's just like hooking yourself up to some taser that would randomly zap you through the course of 2-3 hours.

The movie was blah. It had a story of sorts, so it wasn't utter garbage, but I think this was the second recent movie that had some sort of town cult in it. To me, that angle is getting a little old and unbelievable. The biblical plagues were kinda neat from the CG and makeup perspective, but it wasn't overly impressive. All of the acting was very transparent and rehearsed.

I won't be remembering this one, and you won't be missing out on anything either.
