movie: Season of the Witch

Ok, this is going to be quick because I feel like crapola. I seem to have come down with something that is not very fun.

Season of the Witch
Nicolas Cage and Ron Perlman (Hellyboy) star as a couple of crusade knights who decide to take early retirement due to the whole cruelty of war thing. They lose their faith in the church and go awol.

The pair end up in a town that's been hit by the plague. The townspeople request the knights' assistance. They decline. They later reconsider and agree to help some town representatives escort a woman accused of being a witch who brought the plague to a holy city where she will be judged and presumably, put to death.

Season of the Witch is creepy in parts. There are some great special effects and some really gross plague makeup.

The movie was pretty good, but short. The story had great potential and it would have been nice to see just far into weird/creepy they could take it, but alas. It gets a B-.

There's a guest post on the scheduler for tomorrow. Woo! I know I said I moved them all, but I had a nonfiction author request one and I only put fiction on Journey Reader, so she'll be here instead. Was that a run-on?

Hey, want some free reading? Check out the fiction freebie page on this very blog!
