You know what I don’t like about running contests? Having to send away cool items to the winners. Like a poster signed by Simon Bisley himself.
That’s one of the prizes in the Black Death prize pack we’re giving away. What’s Black Death? Glad you asked.
The year is 1348. Europe has fallen under the shadow of the Black Death. As the plague decimates all in its path, fear and superstition are rife. In this apocalyptic environment, the church is losing its grip on the people. There are rumors of a village, hidden in marshland that the plague cannot reach. There is even talk of a necromancer who leads the village and is able to bring the dead back to life.
Ulric (Sean Bean), a fearsome knight, is charged by the church to investigate these rumors. He enlists the guidance of a novice monk, Osmund (Eddie Redmayne) to lead him and his band of mercenary soldiers to the marshland, but Osmund has other motives for leaving his monastery. Their journey to the village and events that unfold take them into the heart of darkness and to horrors that will put Osmund’s faith in himself and his love for God to the ultimate test.
It’s a gritty, violent medieval movie with some big philosophical thoughts behind it. Look for my review when the film hits theaters on March 11th. But you don’t have to wait until then to see it - Black Death is available now on VOD, Xbox Marketplace, Playstation Network, Amazon and iTunes.

I would LOVE that poster on my own wall, but I must send it to someone else… and that someone could be you. Just drop an email to yo at badassdigest.com with BLACK DEATH in the subject line, and with your real name and address in the body. That’s it!
