Updated with trailer inside. It’s hard to ignore any movie coming out when it’s from director Chris Smith, the man behind such movies as Severance, Triangle and even the highly underrated Creep. Next on his agenda is the Medieval period piece, Black Death, his latest genre film that was recently acquired by Magnolia Pictures’ Magnet Releasing for U.S. distribution. Starring Sean Bean, set in an apocalyptic medieval world, Death details the story of a band of brothers whose quest is to hunt down a necromancer against the backdrop of the first outbreak of bubonic plague in England.
