Did You Know?

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 »
Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): While flying to Boston when Redferne starts suspect the Warlock is on the plane Kassandra refers to Glinda from "The Wizard of Oz" as an example of a good witch but she calls her "The Good Witch of The West". Glinda's title was "Good Witch of The North".See more »
Kassandra:[Having been told the Warlock's true goal] He scares the crap out of me... and he KNOWS it.
Giles Redferne:I'll not let him harm you.
Kassandra:Next time there won't be any spells, no hexes, no potions. Next time, he's gonna kill me.
Giles Redferne:I'll not let him harm you.
[He holds out Kassandra's car keys]

Excellent movie, 17 October 2005
Author: soeur_deux_de_ny2005 from United States

I really enjoyed Warlock it was good like the movies i watched as a teenager. Scary and nail biting. But not totally gory and bad language like the movies are today. I was scared and thrilled through out the entire movie. I would recommend it to anyone. I loved Julian Sands and Richard Grant they were excellent.I enjoyed the scenes played in the Farm yard and the cemetery. I also liked the dialog between Richard Grant and Lori Sanger in the car. The time shock to Richard Grant(Redferne)was done with humor and that made the movie realistic and fun.Also i enjoy movies that explain what happened to the characters in their time and why they are acting like they are in the modern time that the film is set in. I doesn't leave you shaking your head and saying huh why is that like this etc. I think over all all the actors did a really good job and the actors chosen for the characters were exactly right.
