Reaper

Share


Reaper is a supernatural drama comedy staring Bret Harrison as Sam Oliver who lives with his parents and brother. He has always wondered why his mom and dad were so easy on him, whether it was sports, school, or career choices, and so hard on his younger brother. Sam dropped out of college and takes a dead-end job at the Work Bench together with his friend Bert "Sock" Wysocki (Tyler Labine), a home-repair superstore similar to Home Depot. He spends the rest of his time hanging out, playing video games, and pining for his co-worker, Andi (Missy Peregrym).

When Sam celebrates his 21st birthday, his parents are behaving very strangely, and Sam himself is seeing hellish visions and experiencing odd events. His father eventually explains that many years ago, he was very sick, and in return for restoring his health, he and his wife promised their firstborn child to the Devil (Ray Wise). Although the couple intended to cheat the Devil by having no children, this plan went awry when Satan convinced their doctor to lie and tell the couple that they could not conceive in exchange for wiping his gambling debts clean. Sam is born shortly thereafter.

After informing him of his fate, the Devil explains to Sam that he must serve as his bounty hunter (or "Reaper"), tracking down souls that have escaped from Hell and sending them back using his new powers (which have included telekinesis and electrical powers) and vessels, varied objects said to have been hand-made in the bowels of Hell by the iniquitous and the vile.

And that's how the story started - if you take note of Ray Wise, you did be surprise that he's been in two of EA's (Electronic Arts) Command & Conquer: Red Alert II and Yuri's Revenge as President of the United States Michael Dugan.
