Black Death is one of the best medieval films I've ever seen and its one of the more unique I've seen in a while. Directed by Christopher Smith (Creep, Severance) it tells the story of a plague ridden England during the 1340s and a group of soldiers who enlist the guidance of a young monk to embark on a mission to seek a remote village which pestilence has left untouched. It is believed that a necromancer governs the village and he or she must be killed. This movie is so well made. Its dark, sinister and brooding. The landscapes are bleak and forbidding and all the while... beautiful. No doubt Christopher Smith drew inspiration from Mario Bava films like Black Sunday and Lisa and The Devil and he's tailored his own very original film that will hopefully be remembered for some years to come. This one impressed the hell out of me.
