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

Although the makeup tests had been finalized and approved, on the day of shooting Lori Singer decided she didn't want to don the elaborate prosthetics for her transformation into a 40 year-old, and she later refused to sport some of the makeup designed for her 60 year-old transformation. See more »
Redfern Asks if the farmer is Amish, and the farmer replies Mennonite. He wouldn't have known about either in Boston in 1691. See more »
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.
