Synopsis


Season of the Witch
A noble knight battles a wicked witch in a bid to save humanity from an ancient evil in this supernatural thriller starring Nicolas Cage and Ron Perlman. Upon returning to his home in Europe, crusading knight Behmen (Cage) finds his faith beginning to falter due to the brutality he's witnessed on the battlefield. The Black Plague has decimated the countryside, forcing Behmen and his loyal companion, Felson (Perlman), to seek sustenance and supplies at the Palace of Marburg. They're weary from war, but they're about to discover that their struggle is just beginning. Commanded by the moribund Cardinal to deliver a suspected witch to the abbey where her powers can be abolished, Behman accepts the assignment under the condition that the young peasant girl will receive a fair trial. The church believes the girl to be the one responsible for the Black Plague, and they may be right, too. As the two men and a small group of chaperones set out on their arduous mission, they quickly realize that their young charge is something more than human, and that they're about to face an evil beyond human comprehension. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    Medieval times, sorcery, witchcraft and a quest to end it. Nicolas Cage, Ron Perlman and a cast that raises the level of acting not usually found in these types of movies. Adding to the good job of the actors is a storyline that is excellent and has depth. The special effects are well done also. If this is a genre that you find enjoyment watching, then make sure that you watch this one.

    I enjoy both horror movies and Nick Cage but this movie falls short in both areas. Nick Cage is not too convincing as a witch hunter and the horror aspect of the movie falls short. I guess that I expected too much going in and was disappointed. I wanted to see more horror and gruesome creatures and was left waiting on this one. Maybe the movie deserves a better rating but like I mentioned earlier, I expected a little more.

    "Season Of The Witch" ~ A good story line that has some interesting plot twists along the way. The opening scene is sinister and dark with great suggested plot ideas. The acting form the leads is marvelous! The closing segment special effects are truly amazing. Enjoy a good scare with religious overtones...

    This is about average for a B movie from Hollywood, to be expected when you team up Hellboy with the Sorcerers Apprentice. Suppose that's why I only paid $5 for it. Decent plot, but you get what you pay for.

    It's set during The Crusades. It has witches, and some good action scenes, what more could you want? Well, how about Nicholas Cage and Ron Perlman? It's got them too. Check it out, it's pretty entertaining.

    This moving is an exciting romp through the 14th century when magic still existed. The story is well written, the acting well done and the special effects excellent. The twist at the end was a surprise. Overall, an enjoyable, fast paced sci fi adventure.

    Listen I would never rate this movie higher than the two stars. I enjoy this kind of movie and for the price $5.00 I could see no reason not to add it to my collection.
