2.0 out of 5 stars We found a witch! May we burn her? Aug. 25 2011
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
"Season of the Witch" is one of those movies that probably would have gone straight to SyFy/Sci-Fi, if it didn't have an A-list actor attached. It's a murky, rather rushed historical creep-out that blossoms into silly horror at the end, after a long journey where not very much happens. Ron Perlman is awesome, though.

Disgusted with the slaughter of the Crusades, knights Behmen (Nicholas Cage) and Felson (Perlman) desert the army to return home to... somewhere. I think it's England, but I'm not sure.

They arrive in a town infested with the Black Death, and are quickly arrested. But the local bishop (Christopher Lee) offers them a way to clean their slates -- take a witch (Claire Foy) who is blamed for the plague to a distant abbey where she will be depowered courtesy of an ancient spellbook. The embittered Behman doesn't believe she's a witch, but he agrees nevertheless.

Along with a priest, a soldier, a swindler and an altar boy who dreams of knighthood, the two knights take the suspected witch on the perilous journey. But soon Behman starts to suspect that there's something unnatural about her -- she has super-strength, summons wolves, and even makes one man hallucinate right to his death. But no one can guess the horrific truth about what she is until they reach the abbey.

"Season of the Witch" isn't a horrible film, but it is resolutely mediocre -- it has the feel of a movie where nobody was really trying very hard. In fact, the first three-fourths of the movie just sort of ooze by with lots of dirty medieval villages, spooky hints about the witch girl, and lots of misty forests full of giant wolves.

Even the cameramen and screenwriters aren't trying too hard.

2.0 out of 5 stars A notch below mediocre Jan. 11 2012
By Michael TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
The 2 worst enemies of this movie are 1: Nick Cage, who never appears that he's doing anything more than playing dress up. He does have fun, but he's Keanu Reeves on his dryest of films. The 2nd worst enemy is the story- or rather lack of. The story has so much unrealized potential it's irritating. Not a lot happens, and when it does- it always feels like something is missing. I felt that "absence" from beginning to end. Even with the always amusing Ron Perlman, I can't help but agree with another reviewer on here who says this felt more like a cheesy SyFy movie of the week than a medium budgeted movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars Light, special effects movie Nov. 3 2012
Format:DVD
Not a bad movie... but certainly not the most captivating either. An interesting adventure of a crusader with a sense of repulsion, ethics and morals beyond blindly following the commands of the church. Some of the effects were good. I agree with one of the other reviewers that at some point, the movie becomes confused, and thinks it should be a horror.

I have to admit to being confused about the demon. He suggests that he had been been pursuing the exorcism bible throughout the ages, and that it had cost him heavily. Were that the case, it is confusing as to why he would not have just taken "THE" exorcism bible in the opening scene (he/she had the chance). Also, why travel to a monastery by road, when you could fly - and just find it yourself?

Besides a few logic errors in the script - it was a light and enjoyable movie. Do not watch with high expectations. It is more like a Wednesday night movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars A surprisingly good film-4-4 1/2 stars! Oct. 28 2012
By Robert Badgley TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Season of the Witch(released Jan/11)was Relativity Medias first in house production/release,but from what I recall in the trade papers,had some production/distribution difficulties.It was taken out of Lionsgate's hands and then subsequent previews lacked the praise they were after,so they re-shot some scenes and made some editing changes(A British contingent was apparently brought in to kick start the renewed cut).Whatever problems may have occurred in pre-release,the cut we have here on DVD is a gem,a total gem.The pairing of Nicolas Cage as Behman von Bleibruck,and his devoted friend Ron Perlman as Felson,is an unlikely one I will grant you,but after watching the film I saw a good on screen chemistry between the two stars that really enhanced the picture.
The plot involves the Europe of the 14th Century.Witches,real or not,are being killed in many towns and villages for being part of a wide spread plague that is killing the populace(a reference to the actual Bubonic plague that was sweeping Europe at that time).Into the picture comes two Knights of the Crusades,Cage and Perlman,who are devoted friends and fierce warriors.They serve Gods greater purpose in the extermination of all HIS enemies,and go through several grueling campaigns together.On their last campaign,during a seige of a round walled city,Cage accidentally kills a young girl.Both look around only to be surrounded by women and children lying dead at their feet.They confront the leader of Crusade and essentially give him notice and leave.
They travel for days not seeing anyone,until they come upon a town which Perlman advises against going into.Yet they are short on supplies and are in dire need of rest.They enter the city only to find it is also under siege by the plague.
