A while ago we brought you a short teaser trailer for Nicolas Cage‘s upcoming film, Season of the Witch. It was literally a blink and you missed it kind of a thing, so Lionsgate decided to put out a new one. The theatrical trailer obviously shows a lot more footage, but it still doesn’t help the direct to DVD quality it has going on.
Check out the trailer below…
Season of the Witch is a horror thriller that centers on a 14th century knight who transports a girl suspected of being the witch behind the Black Plague to an abbey of monks trained in exorcising demons. The premise sounds like a bunch of old school mumbo jumbo. With such a horrible story, it doesn’t help that Cage sports an equally horrible wig, as if their aren’t enough distractions going on.
The only plus side to this movie is Ron Perlman, because this campy type of stuff is right up his alley. The actress who plays the young girl or “witch,” at first glance looks like Kristen Stewart, which was kind of disturbing. When she first appears on screen tell me if you don’t notice the similarities. Season of the Witch is directed by Dominic Sena and is scheduled for release on March 19, 2010.
What do you think of the trailer?
