Two horror tales based on short stories by Edgar Allan Poe directed by two famous horror directors, George A. Romero and Dario Argento. A greedy wife kills her husband, but not completely. A sleazy reporter adopts a strange black cat.
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

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 »

Why couldn't he just kill me? Nothing could be worse than this!
His very thought.

You tellin' me you're a witch...? You ain't no witch! Witches are girls!
Oh, dost thou scare me! hang me and burn me over a baskets of cats. I'm dead, you dolt, I don't care what you do after that. I can't believe they believed such nonsense in 1691, but apparently they did.
But, the Warlock (Julian Sands) was too slick for them and ends in in present day LA. Soon, Redferne (Richard E. Grant) appears to bring him back in some kind of reverse Terminator. A tongue bitten out and eyes removed in the first 10 minutes. This should be interesting.
Lori Singer (Short Cuts) joins Redferne after being cursed by the Warlock to age 20 years every day. Can't think of a worse curse for a woman. They travel to Boston to stop the Warlock, who discovers along the way that a certain priest has been doing unpriestly things, and uses that to get his information.
There is not a lot of special effects, but what there was seemed good for the time.
The real fun of this movie is the interaction of Singer and Grant. They made it worth watching.
Oh, yeah, get thee you male children baptized.
