Product Description

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.

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!)

By Steven TOP 500 REVIEWER on 30 Jan. 2014
Format: DVD
The movie has a really interesting premise and I wasn't surprised to hear that it was written by David Twoy (Below, The Arrival, Pitch Black). I find the beginning of the film very impressive; they've really thought about the set dressing, the opening shots of a snowy village are well presented and serve to set the scene. At this point, the screenplay introduces two very engaging characters; Richard E Grant who plays our humble hero; he's captured the malevolent Warlock Julian Sands who was responsible for the death of his wife. As our hero approaches the peel house where the Warlock is being kept, he pauses to look at a dark and foreboding sky which appears on the horizon, this visual is quite impressive, sadly though, the effects from this point on are of their time and might seem shabby when compared to more contemporary CGI. Once inside the peel tower a dark power opens a portal to transport the Warlock away; seeing his chance at justice disappear, our hero follows and is transported into the present day where he begins a desperate race to stop the Warlock from siezing an ancient script which will undo all creation. There are loads of inventive ideas in here, from hammering nails into footprints to slow down the Warlock to Amish farmers noticing signs of bewitchment in their livestock. Lori Singer is on hand to help things along and actually does rather well as Grant's 21st century sidekick. Sands plays the Warlock with a gleeful darkness whilst Grant has a warm and honest appeal as the determined tracker. I'll be watching this again soon.
