|14th-century knights transport a suspected witch to a monastery, where monks deduce her powers could be the source of the black plague.|
Editor's NoteA noble knight battles a wicked witch in a bid to save humanity from an ancient evil in this supernatural thriller starring Nicolas Cage and Ron Perlman. Upon returning to his home in Europe, crusading knight Behmen (Cage) finds his faith beginning to falter due to the brutality he's witnessed on the battlefield. The Black Plague has decimated the countryside, forcing Behmen and his loyal companion, Felson (Perlman), to seek sustenance and supplies at the Palace of Marburg. They're weary from war, but they're about to discover that their struggle is just beginning. Commanded by the moribund Cardinal to deliver a suspected witch to the abbey where her powers can be abolished, Behman accepts the assignment under the condition that the young peasant girl will receive a fair trial. The church believes the girl to be the one responsible for the Black Plague, and they may be right, too. As the two men and a small group of chaperones set out on their arduous mission, they quickly realize that their young charge is something more than human, and that they're about to face an evil beyond human comprehension.

Customer Reviews of Season of the Witch (Blu-ray)
I completely enjoyed this movie. It was one of the few scary movies I have seen that was not so heavy handed that it turned into a comedy. Yes it was dark. It is during medival times with its ugly crusades and deathly plagues. Yet the filming is also beautiful. It is a horror movie with class. I do not want to give spoilers so I won't tell what the actual horror is or who survives. If you like fantasy on the dark side that doesn't end with everyone dead, you might like this. I certainly did.
Season of the witch is a decent film4/10/2012
I watched this in the theatre and liked it enough to add it to my collection. I looks like the blu-ray has a Canada rating.
