Season of the Witch is a story of the crusades. It begins with the trial and death of three accused witches, one of which did not die. Soldier Behmen (Nicholas Cage) is enlisted to accompany the witch to the monastery where he promised her that she would be given a fair trial. But the lands are full of a terrible black plague which is wiping out half the population in some ares. The people believe the witch is to blame for all the terrible disease. But it could be a far more sinister enemy that they have to fight. Behmen and his followers have to work out the right path to get their captive, and themselves, safely through the countryside and that will never be easy.

This was actually a far better movie than I ever expected it to be. The actors were good. Cage pulled off his part expertly, and he was surrounded by the likes of Christopher Lee and Ron Perlman, plus others who were excellent. Claire Foy plays the witch and she is awesome as well. This is a lot of adventure, a lot of fighting, and a lot of supernatural devil and witchcraft kind of stuff that keeps it interesting throughout. With lots of twists and turns and unexpected happenings, you never get bored, so with good acting, excellent story, and great fighting, it’s a really good movie. And the scenery is spectacular. This was highly overlooked, and now that it’s available on DVD, it’s an excellent film to fill a summer evening with fun and adventure and a few scares. It’s also very suspenseful. I highly recommend this for action movie fans.
