In the year of our Lord sixteen hundred and ninety one, a Warlock (Julian Sands) was to be executed. He had been brought before the magistrates of this Massachusetts Village by the witch hunter Giles Redferne (Richard E. Grant). He had been tried and found guilty and would die for his crimes against God and Man. As all were gathering to walk him down to his death a storm was brewing outside the tower. All of sudden the Warlock was swept away and Redferne in hot pursuit.
Modern day, and you see a young girl by the name of Kassandra (Lori Singer) and she is lying in bed tossing and turning. Next you here some glass breaking and she and her roommate find the Warlock on the floor. They try to call an ambulance but they notice he's not hurt that bad. They go back to bed and in the morning Kassandra gets ready for work. The Warlock is still asleep and her roommate Chas (Kevin O'Brien) is up and starting to cook some breakfast.
Kassandra heads to work and Chas and the Warlock exchange small little pleasantries. The warlock will eventually take out Chas' tongue and cut his finger off. Kassandra will find him dead.
The Warlock is in search of the Devil's Bible where he will find the true name of God and can undo all that has been done in time.
Redferne will finally show up to search again for the Warlock but in the process he has limited time. For the Warlock has put a spell onto Kassandra that within two days she will die of old age.
Look this is one of those films that you could call a cult classic. It brings the witchcraft of old to a modern day existence, thus giving one the feeling that if you believe, this could be Deja-Vu.
Director Steve Miner brings together a film that will make you keep up with it as to not lose sight of what the goal is, the destruction of all time. So, enjoy this tale of yore and enjoy what once was and who knows could be, if you should believe in Witches and Warlocks.
