Season of the Witch is an adventure fantasy film focusing on the 14th century’s Black Plague. Directed by Dominic Sena, the film was originally scheduled to be released on March 19, 2011 but was postponed and finally released on January 7, 2011.

Behmen (Nicolas Cage) and Felson (Ron Perlman) are medieval knights in the 14th century. After fighting for the Crusades for a long time, Behmen and Felson decide to call it a quit and return to England. During their journey home, they realize that the Black Plague has swept across the land and the Church blames it on a young girl whom they believe is a witch.

After being thrown in the jail deserting the Crusades, Behmen and Felson eventually agree to help to transport the witch (played by Claire Foy) to a remote monastery where the monks will decide her fate. Behmen and Felson are joined in their quest by the priest Debelzaq (Stephen Campbell Moore), an altar boy Kay (Robert Sheehan), a heralded knight Eckhart (Ulrich Thomsen), and the group’s slippery guide, the traveling con man Hagamar (Stephen Graham).

Despite the superb casting, the movie fails miserably as a thriller and as a supernatural film. Only Claire Foy excels in her role well as a young girl who was suspected as the witch who caused the plague. Her innocent look and mischievous look at times is the only thing that keep the audience guessing. Whereas Nicolas Cage and Ron Perlman, at times, look worn out and weary as though as the war with the Crusades have taken a toll on them throughout the movie.

Overall, Season of the Witch is a mediocre medieval supernatural thriller that simply lacks the punch.

My ratings: 4 out of 10.
