In Boston of 1691, a warlock is sentenced to death, but escapes magically into the future (our present), followed doggedly by the witch hunter. There he is searching for the three parts of the Devil's Bible, trailed by the witch hunter and the woman whose house he landed in. They must stop him, as the book contains the true name of God, which he can use to un-create the world. Written by

The film was originally completed in late 1988 and was one of the last films completed by distributor New World Pictures when they filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The film's trailer was actually shown before early 1989 theatrical releases. Instead of going direct to video, Warlock was picked up and released in theatres by Trimark Pictures in 1991. Its box office success lead to a sequel, "Warlock: The Armageddon" in which Trimark also released theatrically. See more »

Richard E Grant, brilliant with his dodgy Scottish accent
This film is a classic. Richard E Grant puts on a wonderful performance although his Scottish accent isnt as strong enough to be believable as it has been toned down so that Americans can understand it. The effects are typically eighties adding to the fun. A good film to watch when you're in the mood for something a bit different and not too serious.
