The anticlimactic scenes all lead up to an inevitable CGI-heavy showdown: Good vs. Evil, featuring a clan of grotesque zombie monks and a winged demon as realistic as the one Eddie Murphy jacks up in The Golden Child.

The filmmakers try to use special effects to cover up the weaknesses of the story, but even on that point they fail pretty badly.

God's teeth!

Avoid it -- wait for it -- like the Black Plague.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

The scariest thing about Season of the Witch is the movie itself, an abomination of bad filmmaking and terrible acting.
Full Review | Original Score: 0.5/5
January 8, 2011
Disregards characters, emotions and even dramatic tension in favour of an endless parade of 'cool shit' to impress its perceived audience of 13 year olds.
Full Review | Original Score: 0.13/1

Cage's old pal Dominic Sena is a decade removed from their "Gone in 60 Seconds" directing glory, and he gets nothing out of this script that isn't pure hokum.

You've probably never heard of first time screenwriter Bragi F Schut. And, after wading through this 14th century swords-and-witches hokum you'll probably never want to see his name again.

Ever since Bergman's "The Virgin Spring" was remade as "Last House on the Left," his work has suggested a rich mine for homage.

Cage is effective as a falling down drunk in Las Vegas or a treasure hunter navigating goofy road trips but not as a disillusioned champion of the Church going one-on-one with a demon. Steven Seagal would have been more believable.

It is a hopeless mish-mash that feels like they were making it up as they went along. It's also dull.

Welcome to the January dead zone.
January 6, 2011
Despite some terrific locations in Hungary and the Austrian Alps, this ho-hum 14th-century history lesson remains routine and unconvincing right up to its all-hell-breaks-loose CGI-heavy finale.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

If you can sit through an Uwe Boll movie, and be genuinely entertained; then run, don't walk, to see Season of the Witch.

January 6, 2011
Season of the Witch is a fine example of a film that would've been great fun if only its creators had a sense of humor about the wild brew of absurdity they had percolating.
January 6, 2011
It's part fairy tale-gone-wrong, part recycled legend, part panto horror. Think The Wolfman, or Van Helsing, only worse.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
January 7, 2011
Dull: the last thing a freakin' period-piece action-adventure occult thriller should be.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
January 6, 2011
A CGI freakout at the finale can't save this mundane medieval thriller about witches, devils and disillusioned knights.
January 6, 2011
A mediocre knights-and-witchcraft B-movie that's somewhat cheesy, somewhat intriguing, and ultimately just not all that involving.
January 6, 2011
Not only bad in predictable ways, it's obscenely lazy.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
