    The real plague is the movie, a sci-fi hodgepodge of bad history and worse special effects. show more

    A mishmash of horror and history genres that's not as bad as its trailers but ultimately is dragged down by, of all things, its star. show more

    Could have been decent had they actually not decided to make her an evil demon.

    Season of the Witch was terrible--I paid 5.99 to view this movie on Pay Per View. Very disappointed in Nicholas Cage. I loved the Sorceer’s Apprentice and it was good. I love Nick Cage but keep making the good ones Ni

    What\'s happened to Nicholas Cage? Another terrible script with which he seems to be the least bit interested. This movie seems ro rewrite history, and that\'s always dangerous. All of those computer generated special effects are not at all believeable. No wonder this film was released in Japan of all places. Perhaps its our way of getting back for what happened at Pearl Harbor, Dec. 7, 1941. Ron Perlman and the others do as much with this script as they can be expected. I note that it cost about $40 million to make and brough in about $25 million. Go figure. .
