How to survive a horror movie tip # 31Remember that dark alleys and basements are under no circumstances "safe zones."


Plotline: Set during the time of the first outbreak of bubonic plague in England, a young monk is tasked with learning the truth about reports of people being brought back to life in a small village.

Scariness Factor: This movie is not really scary; it’s tense, gloomy, and dreadful. The torture and fight scenes are brutal & realistic and hard to watch.

Gross out factor: On a scale of 1 to 5: 0

Complaints: N/A

High Points: Black Death gets darker and darker the further along the movie goes. This movie is beautifully unsettling, I loved the small cast and all the characters and I am going to watch it again =D

Stars 5 Stars

Where I rented it: Netflix
