RLJE Films set the theatrical and digital release dates for the horror-adventure movie “The Reckoning.” The film will release in select theaters on February 5th, the same day it launches on digital platforms and on-demand.
Neil Marshall directed the movie, working from a script written by Marshall, Charlotte Kirk, and Edward Evers-Swindell. The movie stars Kirk, Joe Anderson, Steven Waddington, and Sean Pertwee, and is based on a story from Antony Jones and Evers-Swindell.
The description reads, “After losing her husband during the Great Plague, Grace Haverstock (Charlotte Kirk) is unjustly accused of being a witch and placed in the custody of England’s most ruthless witch-hunter, Judge Moorcroft (Sean Pertwee). Forced to endure physical and emotional torture while steadfastly maintaining her innocence, Grace must face her own inner demons as the Devil himself starts to work his way into her mind.”
The studio released a first look trailer on social media this week to confirm the release dates. If you missed the trailer, you can watch the promotional video below for a quick preview of the story.
If you’re looking for something new to stream over the next few week, on-demand and digital platforms should be your first choice.
