A sinister 17th century warlock summons satanic intervention to escape a death sentence and finds himself transported 300 years into the future. Arriving in modern-day Los Angeles his quest is to find the scattered remains of the 'Grand Grimoire, the Devil's bible containing the true name of god and with it the power to destroy mankind. He has not been transported alone however and in steadfast pursuit is the witch-finder who brought him to trial and must now hunt him down once more.

Julian Sands and Richard E. Grant give superbly matched performances as the enigmatic, battling adversaries in this classic supernatural horror.

Available for the first time on DVD in the UK.

Format: DVD
Having never seen this before, after I had read the above blurb, I was expecting something very similar to Highlander and although there are many similarities, the two films are very much a different experience. The film starts in a courtroom where "Warlock" (played by Sands) is on trial for witchcraft. Escaping 300 years into the future he crashed into the living room of the house the beautiful young Kassandra (Singer) is living. After Warlock casts a spell on Kassandra aging her twenty years, she joins forces with witchhunter Giles (Richard E. Grant) who has also travelled forwards in time. As the story progresses we are treated to what is essentially a very fun film. The first thing that struck me is just how well the cast play off each other. Obviously enjoying themselves the chemistry gives the characters that extra little kick which ignites your interest into this supernatural battle. This isn't to say that some of the acting isn't flawed, but it doesn't take away from the movie. Despite being a horror, we aren't given much gore and instead the majority of horror scenes are quite mild and filmed in a way to imply something horrific is happening. This coupled with some reasonably good special effects for a film of this ilk and budget actually adds to the overall enjoyment of the film and if it had gone for out and out gore it would have a very different feel to the overall product. The direction is solid with well organised action scenes and some nice sweeping shots throughout later locations which was to be expected from Miner whose previous film "House" is a favourite of mine.Read more ›

Some people hate this movie for its B-Grade qualities. Ok it's no Citizen Kane but, for me, it's an excellent 'feel-good' horror movie (ie more fun than scary).

I love Richard E. Grant's work and his performance in this is, strangely, amongst his best ~ quirky, whimsical and charming. Julian Sands, doing a campy turn as the relentlessly evil warlock, seems to be having a ball as well. The movie screams '1980s' in places (Lori Singer's clothes, for instance...) but this is nicely offset by Jerry Goldsmith's unusual and timeless score.

If you're a fan of the movie and only have the 4:3 DVD then this Widescreen Blu Ray is a must. Apart from now having the correct aspect ratio, the picture quality itself is much improved too.

THE MOVIE

Finally this classic fantasy/horror movie is available in the UK on DVD in its uncut form, rerated 12 by the BBFC.
Calling it an "extended version" is a bit misleading though, I also own the US print of this fantastic movie and the newly released Brit version is exactly the same (runtime-wise).
This UK version is in WIDESCREEN - which makes it better than the US print which is in fullscreen. Unfortunately there's no blu-ray release.
I always loved this movie, which features excellent performances by Julian Sands and Richard Grant (in the best role of his career) and surprisingly little gore (especially when compared to its inferior sequals). The SFX were astounding at the time (completed in 1988).
NOTE: the notorious "Channeler scene" from the original theatrical trailer is NOT included in this print - it is the original R rated US version.

THE DVD

Reviewed version: 2011 Second Sight UK DVD
Feature running time: 99 mins. (uncut!)
Rating: R (MPAA) / 12 (BBFC)(rerated 2011)
Aspect Ratio: 1.85:1/16:9 (anamorphic)
Audio: English 2.0
Subtitles: NONE
Extras: None
Region: 2

Picture and audio quality are good. Unlike the Region 1 release, this is in 16:9 anamorphic widescreen. There are NO subtitles or extras on this DVD.

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
this film is one of my favourite fantasy horror films, and is to old for a review so see bluray specs below;

Picture Quality 8/10 (the resolution is alot higher than I've ever seen with great colour and clarity)

Sound Quality 5/10 (Although it's had a DTS HD remaster it's still only in 'english DTS HD MASTER 2.0 be warned there's NO 5.1 or 7.1) so if you've got a full HD ampilfier it can be up-scaled from stereo to DTS NEO 6 CINEMA 7.0, otherwise you'll have to just listen to it in stereo.

If you're a fan of this film, it's worth the up grade....

No warlock is not gonna win any oscars. No it's no the most up-to-date action horror out there but if all you want is to be entertained with some good action and a little tongue in cheek horror humour from the brilliant Richard E Grant, then watch Warlock. Julian Sands makes a good job of being loathsome and evil and the films got a pretty decent plot (it was the 80's!!!) Give it a chance it really is pretty good and don't listen to the other over opinionated, pretentious nay sayers who dont know what there talking about.

Format: DVD
In the seventeenth century, a warlock (Julian Sands) escapes from its prison tower and time-travels up to 1988 as he tries to find the pieces of a lost Bible that would enable him to find the name of God and uncreate the world. Unfortunately for him, the witchhunter Redferne (Richard E. Grant), who captured him and time-traveled on that time period, and a woman called Kassandra (Lori Singer), whom the warlock put an aging curse on her, are on his trail and will do everything to stop him.

Now the movie is far from being perfect for there are some one-liners that more or less worked, and some plotholes like how the witchhunter Redferne, when asking the help of a mormon priest, knows anything about mormons when they are not from his time period, but from the 19th century. Not only that, although some special effects were well done, I still felt that some shots were bad and created some illogical situations, like in the cemetary when the warlock casts fireballs in Redferne's mouth for when it happened, I really wondered as to how Redferne could be able to spit them out of his mouth and still be alive for if some wizard tried that trick on me, I know that I would be "dead", which is why it is so weird to see Redferne still alive and his mouth still intact.
Come to think of it, and of plotholes, I still wonder how Redferne manages to time-travel back to his time period at the end of the story when there is no warlock around him that can do so.

Nevertheless, I think Warlock is a fun movie to watch during the evening or if you want to take a good look at to how they did visual effects before computers became as evolved as they are today and started to over-kill some movies. Not only that, it is just great to see Julian Sands (Room with a View, Gothic, Boxing Helena) and Richard E.
