I'm really hoping that this turns out to be as interesting as it looks. There haven't been many good Medieval epics and this one reminds me quite a bit of a subplot in "The Seventh Seal". However, it stars Nic Cage which is kind of like the kiss of death these days.

I'll be out to see this one this weekend. I am just not sure which one to see first, this one or "Blue Valentine"... Nic Cage hopefully is on the road to redemption. He has another upcoming supernatural movie too.

It's also interesting because there's another film with a similar premise starring Sean Bean.

2 ½ Stars: A Medieval Horror-Occult Action-Fantasy That is Not A
I’ve seen so many brilliant and depressing dramas the past few weeks that I thought I’d go for something more action-oriented and maybe even a little bit spooky this weekend. Well, a friend had told me that seeing a Nic Cage flick is like a signature of mediocrity these days, but hey, sometimes I need to see something I don’t need to think too much about. All the depressing films I’ve seen can give a popcorn film a new light of appreciation I hope. After the films “Kick-Ass” …

*1/2 out of ****     I almost don't want to call Dominic Sena's "Season of the Witch" a bad film. It is, in fact, NOT a remake of the George Romero film of the same name; but as an original work, it still lacks the grit and enthusiasm that could have made it work. It treats serious subjects with near apathy, the actors never seem into it, and frankly, the whole thing just stinks. It's not the worst movie I will see this year, but it is still slow, ponderous, and stupid. Now, …

Star Rating:         What we have here is a bit of a contradiction: A historical drama that exposes the hypocrisy of the Church and a supernatural thriller that confirms the existence of evil demonic forces. This is clearly not a matter of what the filmmakers would have us believe, but even in terms of pure entertainment, I’m puzzled as to how anyone thought both messages could be sent in the same story. One can be taken seriously. The other cannot. Season of …

Nothing spectacular nor exceptional. Predictable tale and some gruesome cosmetic effects. Keep your $$$ and watch it on Netflix if you're into horror movie. Otherwise, don't bother to waste the time!

About this movie

Wiki


14th-century knights transport a suspected witch to a monastery, where monks deduce her powers could be the source of the Black Plague.

A 14th century Crusader returns to a homeland devastated by the Black Plague. A beleaguered church, deeming sorcery the culprit of the plague, commands the two knights to transport an accused witch to a remote abbey, where monks will perform a ritual in hopes of ending the pestilence. A priest, a grieving knight, a disgraced itinerant and a headstrong youth who can only dream of becoming a knight join a mission troubled by mythically hostile wilderness and fierce contention over the fate of the girl. When the embattled party arrives at the abbey, a horrific discovery jeopardises the knight's pledge to ensure the girl fair treatment, and pits them against an inexplicably powerful and destructive force.Written by Momentum Pictures
