Storyline

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 Ed Sutton <esutton@mindspring.com>

Trivia

When Julian Sands received the script, he assumed it was in the mold of the then-popular slasher movies, so it sat around for a while before he got around to reading it. Once he finally decided to give it a once-over, he was captivated and quickly became excited about the film. See more »

Quotes

Giles Redferne: The warlock holds two parts of the book. This much he confessed. Know you what happens should he gain all three?
Kassandra: I don't want to know. I don't.
Giles Redferne: Hidden within that book is the name of God, the lost name of God.
Kassandra: The lost name of... Huh-uh, I don't wanna hear this.
Giles Redferne: 'Tis the name invoked during creation. Witches charge that should this name, this true name of God, be uttered back to front...
Kassandra: I'm not listening.
Giles Redferne: Should this name be uttered in reverse...

Warlock is Fun, Mystery, Drama and Supernatural. Just great
9 March 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I rarely watch any thriller type movies that involve the supernatural and and sort of monster or witch. They all tend to have similar plots and fail to challenge the imagination. I only saw this movie because my wife and daughter had just tuned it in when I arrived home one day. I watched simply to spend some time with them and chat during commercial breaks. I was caught up in this story very quickly and remained glued to my seat until it was over. Basically a male witch, played by Julian Sands, who wishes to reverse creation by finding a long hidden biblical document, makes the leap from the 15th century to present day to search for it. He is pursued by an equally determined witch hunter, played by Richard Grant. The movie is comical one moment and bone chilling the next. It's well presented and thrilling from start to finish. The witch chaser pursues the warlock across country, with the assistance of a young lady who falls into the story, with the chase culminating in a Graveyard in a very old section of Boston. Lots of excitement, drama, comedy and horror along the way. A delight to watch.
