Season of the Witch (2010) -Nicolas Cage

I'm not going to say anything, other than Cage continues to look for new ways to top himself, and not in a positive manner.

Trailer is not working.

Anyway, disappointed in that I was hoping George Romero had finally been able to do a remake of his movie.

If only this was a remake of Halloween III.

Trailer at Apple.com

This looks really, really bad.

It does, however, have Clay Morrow in it.

I read a description of the movie online and it sounded interesting. Then I saw the trailer which was kind of weak. Sounds like a pass for me.

I second that.

Why is Rob taking forever to make a Werewolf Women movie and yet seems to have enough free time to make a song about it for his new album?

For anyone daring to see this film, you have to be prepared.

Don't take the film seriously, or expect anything out of it. It's a Nicholas Cage film after all.

Think of the film by a different name: "Robin Hood vs. The Demonic Zombie Plague From Hell", and you'll have a much better experience.

Re: Season of the Witch (2010) -Nicolas Cage

It's 1/3 Robin Hood, 1/3 Army of Darkness, and 1/3 The Exorcist.

Like I said before, don't take it seriously and you'll have a much better experience. The audience I saw it with jumped at a few of the cheap 'gotcha' scenes, but it's not that bad of a film when seen in the proper light.

I won't take it seriously... but this still looks like the worst film imaginable. I'll wait to rent it on VHS.

Re: Season of the Witch (2010) -Nicolas Cage

After 68 reviews, it stands at 1% on the Rotton Tomatoe meter, with one lone critic giving it a fresh rating...and that critic said that it it's creaky, predictable and frequently idiotic.

Nicholas Cage has always been overrated in my book, so i I have no problem with him continually doing films like this...his over-acting fits them like a glove.

Is it so bad that it's good? A good B movie is nice now and then...

Overrated? Outside of Adaptation, Leaving Las Vegas and very few others I don't recall Cage being particularly well rated.

Re: Season of the Witch (2010) -Nicolas Cage

I think Nicholas Cage's acting ability is underrated; the guy has an idea of what makes things work for characters, like his decision to use the false teeth and "Pokey-like" voice for Charlie Bodell in Peggy Sue Got Married.
