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.Read more ›
Weird things happen along the way as we suspect the girl really is a witch. The Cardinal had a very distinguished voice, which can be no one other than Christopher Lee. The special effects were good, but the plot lacked. The ending of the story was all wrong. The guide, who was a colorful character was severely under utilized.
PARENTAL GUIDE: no nudity, sex, or f-bombs.
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.Read more ›

The story line was good,cage was a bit somber, not his usual crazy self that I love, but that might be the director.perleman was awesome.Published on Jan. 30 2013 by christinna cooper
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... Read morePublished on Nov. 3 2012 by Charles Dimov
