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

Elements of David Twohy's original script, in which the Warlock was actually a good but misunderstood man, remained in the re-write. Throughout several scenes in the film, the Warlock shows some minimal elements of kindness. mercy and polite manners. In particular, he is actually quite friendly and casual toward the unbaptized child prior to discovering that he was, in fact, unbaptized. He is later respectful of the crucifix and sanctity of the home of the pastor, and shows mercy toward his wife and unborn children in exchange for information. 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 »

An 80's horror movie thats GOOD!!
This is to me one of the most overlooked 80's horror films yet. Its also one of the best. The characters are well developed, and there's even an actual plot! The cast was perfect as well as the special effects which arn't cheesey at all. You don't see the typical teen girls getting butchered along with their boyfriends. You don't see undeveloped unlikeble characters. What you do see is a really good movie, that is totally underrated. Underrated is the key word to describe this movie, Lori Singer is a brilliant actress who is far too overlooked as well as Julian Sands. Its a "must see" movie for fans of quality horror movies.
