Movie: Black Death (2011)
Black Death’s action takes place in 1348, when the first outbreak of bubonic plague hit England – the name of the movie is the “nickname” received by the plague in those dark times. Even if the movie is based on a true event, the whole plot is fictional, but if you like medieval movies and zombies then this horror movie is right for you.
The plague hits hard and kills many, and people are starting to lose their faith. Since those were times when the church was eager to keep people under control, when rumors of a village where the plague didn’t reach and even more where people are being brought back to life spur, the church takes a stand. The main plot in Black Death surrounds Ulric (Sean Bean), a knight charged by the church to go and see if any of these rumors are true. In his journey he takes with him novice monk Osmund (Eddie Redmayne) to guide him and his mercenaries to this mysterious village. The events that occur when they reach the village and the dark secrets they discover will put Osmund’s faith to the test, and endanger their lives.
