Season of the Witch

OK, yeah. You're reading a declared Nic Cage supporter. But "Season of the Witch,"  currently at 4% on Rotten Tomatoes, is not a 4% movie.

It's sins are obvious: fuzzy CGI, hammy acting, and bad dialogue, usually culminating in atrocious one liners.

But the movie is camp. It's supposed to be overacted and it's not supposed to be taken seriously. Yes, the wolves looked terrible, and the act v twist was incomprehensible, but the bridge scene felt genuinely thrilling and the landscapes were pretty. The makeup and costumes were solid. Nic's hair is good. And Ron Perlman's in it. What more do you want?

Some movies rated higher than "Season of the Witch" on Rotten Tomatoes:

"Gigli" - 7%
"Big Momma's House 2" - 6%
"Larry the Cable Guy: Health Inspector" - 5%

Oh, and "Bangkok Dangerous" - 9%

No fucking way was "Bangkok Dangerous" better than "Season of the Witch."

Season of the Witch - 2010
4/10 Nics
