Season of the Witch (2010) - Synopsis
Lionsgate's supernatural thriller, SEASON OF THE WITCH, stars Nicolas Cage
as medieval knight Behmen who undertakes a mission pitting him against an
devious witch and making him the last hope for the world against an ancient
and dark force. His faith broken by years of battle as a crusader, Behmen
returns to central Europe to find his homeland decimated by the Black
Plague. While searching for food and supplies at the Palace at Marburg,
Behmen and his trusted companion, Felson (Ron Perlman) are apprehended and
ordered by the dying Cardinal to deliver a young peasant girl believed to
be the witch responsible for the Plague to a remote abbey where her powers
can be destroyed. Behmen agrees to the assignment but only if the peasant
girl is granted a fair trial. As he and five others set off on this
dangerous journey, they realize with mounting dread that the cunning girl is
no ordinary human, and that their mission will pit them against an evil that
even in these dark times they never could have imagined.
