About the Movie
Oscar® winner Nicolas Cage (National Treasure, Ghost Rider) and Ron Perlman (Hellboy, Hellboy II, Sons of Anarchy) star in this supernatural action adventure about a heroic Crusader and his closest friend who return home after decades of fierce fighting, only to find their world destroyed by the Plague. The church elders, convinced that a girl accused of being a witch is responsible for the devastation, command the two to transport the strange girl to a remote monastery where monks will perform an ancient ritual to rid the land of her curse. They embark on a harrowing, action-filled journey that will test their strength and courage as they discover the girl's dark secret and find themselves battling a terrifyingly powerful force that will determine the fate of the world.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: It's got videogame-from-hell F/X, plus jousting, plus Cage in tangled long hair he seems to have mistakenly put in the washing machine.
Rotten: Season of the Witch is as bloodless as a starved vampire. Instead of a review, it deserves a stake in the heart.
Rotten: A mishmash of horror and history genres that's not as bad as its trailers but ultimately is dragged down by, of all things, its star.
Rotten: After a while, the movie tires of the witch business and trots out a plot twist that permits the effects department to spend money.
Such a Bad Film
I only gave it one star because I had to, Without a doubt the worst cage film I have ever had the misfortune of watching. Someone owes me a refund for my time endured watching it. If someone manages to watch it from beginning to end they deserve the medal of honour.
Season of the Witch
I was skeptical about purchasing due to some of the other reviews written; however, movie turned out to be good purchase. Will watch again.
Nicholas Cage has officially hit a new low for starring in this pile of garbage that has the nerve to call itself a movie! Don't get me wrong, the man is a talented actor and has starred in a lot of awesome films in the past, but "Season of the Witch" is, quite frankly, an utter abomination that should have never been made. I mean, it's not even bad to the point where it's funny to watch, it's just bad...PERIOD! I don't care if the movie's "not supposed to be taken seriously". That doesn't mean it shouldn't at least try to be exciting and entertaining, which it pretty much fails at accomplishing. This is by far the worst film that I've had the misfortune of seeing so far this year, and it just goes to show how a bland storyline, lazy writing, and uninteresting characters only lead to a movie's eventual disaster. Anyway, if you still haven't been convinced by this angry review, you can always rent (but not buy) "Season of the Witch" and be the judge for yourself. But, don't say I didn't warn you!
