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.
Once again I failed to follow the critics advice and was very entertained! A story that takes place during the "Black Death" plague. Historically a time when few people had pretty hair. It was the dark ages people, pestilence and lice! Nick does a great job and so does Ron Perlman. Two thumbs up.
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.
