Believing a witch to be responsible for the devastation, they are commanded by the church Cardinal (Christopher Lee – Lord of The Rings) to transport the girl to a remote monastery where monks will perform an ancient ritual to rid the land of her curse. But they soon discover the girl’s dark secret and find themselves battling a powerful and destructive force that will determine the fate of the world forever.

This movie was so thoroughly murdered by the critics, that I was not expecting much - but to my great surprise I spend a very pleasant cinema moment!

As you probably already know the main plot is about two former crusaders, a noble knight Behmen (Nicholas Cage) and a simple warrior Felson (Ron Pearlman), who, after running in trouble with the Church, are pardoned but asked to perform one more service - escort an alleged witch, a young girl named Anna (Claire Foy) to the remote abbey where she can be tried. The journey begins in what seems to be western Austria and is quite long and dangerous as the travelers must cross the Alps and some particularly wild forests to reach the abbey of Severac which seems to be somewhere in northern Switzerland or southern Alsace.

The reason for this journey is that the whole country is stricken by an incredibly deadly epidemic - in fact it is the beginning of THE Black Death of 1348-52, which was going ultimately to kill half of the population of the whole Europe! The cardinal d'Ambroise (Christopher Lee) who sends the two ex-crusaders in this mission is himself dying of plague. The Church considers Anna responsible for the epidemic, as she was seen around most of the places where the disease began - she also is supernaturally strong and speaks often in tongues nobody have ever heard off. The Church hopes that the monks of Severac, who own a large collection of secret books advising how to remove curses and expel demons, will be able to deprive the witch of her power and put an end to the plague, which is every day killing hundreds of people.

A fun movie that sticks to its genre and does it well. This is a funcool Hammer Horror style B-movie comlplete with a Christopher Lee cameo. It isn't a masterpiece and the narrative and characters are fairly generic but sometimes you want to sit back and enjoy a dumb yet fun movie. Performances are all good with Nicholas Cage and Ron Pearlman sharing some strong chemistry and keeping the film entertaining either through witty one liners or Cage's bad hair. Robert Meehan and Graeme thingy choose to adopt poor American accents which given the time period and setting was unneccassary. One big problem is that the accused witch who they have to transport is revealed to have supernatural powers right from the start when they could have created tension by teasing wether or not she really was or perhaps one of the people escorting her were. The film does still have a small twist but it's not that great. CGI is quite weak but the pratical effects are really strong. The sets, costumes and lighting are all also very strong. This is a fun movie and if the cover or trailer interests you then you won't be disappointed as it is everything that it suggests however having something new or unexpected could have made the film more exciting

3.0 out of 5 stars An average medieval fantasy tale 29 Mar 2011
By J. Morris TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Blu-ray
Nicolas Cage (Lord Of War) and Ron Perlman (I Sell The Dead) play two knights - Behmen and Felson, who have left the crusades in protest at the sheer volume of blood shed they were asked to commit for the church whilst the church pilfers everything it conquers. Morally correct but wanted for desertion they arrive back at home to find a plague in full-swing. Villagers are certain that it has been brought upon them by a young witch (upcoming actress Claire Foy). The knights agree to escort the witch out of town and to a monastery for trial, but whether she is really a witch or not plays heavily on the mind of the knights as they question sentencing an innocent to certain death, is she responsible for the plague or is she just a girl? Time will tell...

Season of the Witch is sure to please fantasy lovers; set in a fictional version of the 14th century it features battles that never took place, mysterious forests (think Tolkien's Fangorn) and magnificent citadels. There is also a heavy sprinkling of the occult, with incantations and leather-bound tomes being responsible for the a lot of the happenings. So if you like films about knights, magic and the supernatural you are sure to enjoy this.

It's well acted by the cast that really vocalise their internal moral struggle about the girl's fate well, with even the audience being left wondering whether she is a witch or not until the very end - it's the sense of uncertainty that holds the tension in place throughout this medieval road trip. The supporting cast are average with only the stereotypical young-knave-desperate-to-be-knight played by Robert Sheehan worth any mention.

4.0 out of 5 stars 'ENJOYABLE 'MEDIEVAL' ROMP' 28 July 2014
By rbmusicman TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
Well, this film has been slated by both critic's and reviewers alike, it's really not that bad, in fact i quite enjoyed it.
True, twas a bit ''Camp'' and as far as i'm aware 'America' was yet to be discovered ( Nicolas Cage's accent ) during those dark days.
'Nicolas Cage' (Behmen Von Bleibruck) and 'Ron Perlman' (Feison) are 'knight's' of the Church during the Crusades, after many years of battle the two become disilusioed of the cause they were fighting for.
They dessert , and head home only to find the land 'rife' with the plague.
The two are arrested as desserter's but given the chance to redeem themselves by escorting what is believed to be the cause of the misery 'a Witch' ....they, along with a guide a priest and a few soldiers are to go to a remote 'Monastery' where the 'Monk's' would 'try' the suspected Witch and rid the land of her curse through a ritual.
The journey has many problems, also upon reaching their destination ''all is not well''
The film has several battle and fight sequences along with some ''Horror' scenes, coupled with some good 'Special-Effects'
give it a go........it's really not a bad watch. (As I've mentioned before, I tend to follow 'Nicholas Cage' movies.
