I have just seen The Reaping.


And I can’t wait for the inevitable mash-up video that will link this film with Bridge to Terabithia, the other movie which features AnnaSophia Robb leading people into supernatural forests.

Haven’t got much else to say at the moment. I do think this film is probably a hair better than, say, Bless the Child (2000), which was also a dull, plodding, cheesy apocalyptic thriller starring an Oscar-winning actress. But then, I guess that isn’t saying much.
