My eyes! My eyes! They’ve been damaged by another film that requires Nicolas Cage to wear a bad wig! It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about his film, Season of the Witch so color me surprised when a teaser trailer finally popped up online. When I say teaser trailer, I mean teaser in every sense of the word. This is a shorty, but goody.
Take a look at the teaser for Season of the Witch…
In the film, a 14th century knight transports a girl suspected of being the witch behind the Black Plague to an abbey of monks trained in exorcising demons. As you can see their trying to tap into the Halloween audience on the sly, even though the film doesn’t open until March. I never knew horror films were so territorial, this one almost comes off as angry with its advertising.
I keep getting this movie mixed up with every other Gothic period piece that’s been done in the last decade. My personal favorite was Tim Burton‘s Sleepy Hollow. This film is directed by Dominic Sena, who also worked with Cage in Gone in 60 Seconds.
