With a touch of X Files, a smattering of The Omen and perhaps a little too much hokiness, it's all agreeably daft fun.

The Reaping is frequently silly, occasionally cliched and slow to get going, but the acting is good and it rallies for an impressive climax.

It's an old testament Da Vinci Code... Hilary Swank has better hair than Tom Hanks any day.

The film may be ridiculous, but give me a river of blood, a rain of frogs, a plague of flies and a storm of locusts, and I'm a relatively content moviegoer.

The Reaping was entertaining and thrilling but fell slightly short on plot development.

God sends down a river of blood, swarming locusts and two-time Academy Award winner Hilary Swank. Guess which one's slumming in a supernatural thriller?

An effectively unsettling mix of Southern gothic and Old Testament hugger-mugger.

...a relatively decent premise that's employed to progressively unwatchable effect by Hopkins...

He lays the photos out on the floor and the burn marks form a cross with a hook at the bottom, the unmistakable emblem of '70s hard rockers Blue Oyster Cult. Hey, didn't they have a big hit called "(Don't Fear) the Reaping"?

At no time does director Stephen Hopkins give us reason to care.

Although terrible, this film does raise ... interesting questions: Why does Hollywood keep ripping off THE OMEN? Why would anyone continue hiring Stephen Hopkins to direct a movie? Why would two-time Oscar-winner Hilary Swank agre to be in this mess?

If The Reaping had been sown with fresher ideas, you might actually care if the devil went down to Georgia, er, Louisiana.
