EXCL: The Season of the Witch Poster!

Not all souls can be saved

Next year promises a varied crop of original horror films. Among them? Season of the Witch starring Nicolas Cage and Ron Perlman (look for an appearance by Christopher Lee, too!). Bragi Schut’s screenplay was widely sought after many years back, now it’s finally reaching the big screen on March 19 from Lionsgate and under the direction of Dominic Sena.

You may have seen the teaser trailer and trailer which premiered within the last two months. Shock Till You Drop is now happy to give you an exclusive first look at the one-sheet.

Here’s the full synopsis: Cage stars as the 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 (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.
