The Reckoning


England, 1665; during the Great Plague, Grace (Charlotte Kirk) (whose husband recently hanged himself) is accused of witchcraft. Thereā€™s a certain ambition in this horror movie to address the widespread killing of women denounced as witches, but the treatment feels anything but serious. The filmmakers focus on ineffective horror shocks (involving the devil and Graceā€™s late husband) and the period details are off. Kirkā€™s makeup remains perfect no matter how much sheā€™s tortured.

2020-Britain. 110 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed byĀ Neil Marshall. Screenplay: Edward Evers-Swindell, Charlotte Kirk, Neil Marshall. Cast: Charlotte Kirk (Grace), Sean Pertwee (Moorcroft), Steven Waddington (Pendleton), Joe Anderson, Rick Warden, Mark Ryan.
