Synopsis

The supernatural thriller SEASON OF THE WITCH stars Nicolas Cage as medieval knight Behmen who undertakes a mission pitting him against a 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, 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 and 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 they never could have imagined.
