The Invisible by David S. Goyer (dir) (Buena Vista Pictures 27 April 2007 / ) - Party Supernatural thriller, part Mystery, and from the "the producers of "The Sixth Sense" and the co-writer of "Batman Begins," The Invisible looks like a gripping bit of work which complements "The Sixth Sense." Of course, trailers always look better than the movies, so we'll have to send someone to find out. In this story, nobody can see dead people, which is a drag, since Nick (JUSTIN CHATWIN)suddenly finds himself dead and yet among the living...only invisible. He's offered one chance to live solving the mystery of his death.

The Reaping by Stephen Hopkins (dir) (Warner Bros. 05 April 2007 / ) - Katherine Winter plays a reformed Christian Missionary (Hilary Swank) who now spend her time myth-busting miracles. Here she's off to find out why a small town is suffering from the big ten biblical plagues, and the question we're all hanging on is whether she'll find the hand of man or her lost faith. Frankly, I'm afraid to ask, but if you're looking for a film outing after your Passover get together, or before Easter dinner...maybe. The website wants you to prove you're over 17 to see the trailer...but really they just want your demographics for their database. If you're willing to give up a little data though, you can send a "plague" to a friend via email, choosing from all the classics. Which makes you wonder. If a friend sends it to you, is it Spam?
