Tag: Season of the Witch
Very few movie studios are willing to gamble on anything that strays outside of their comfort zones. They all want sure things. That's why we get so many remakes and sequels to movies these days. Their actions aren't without reason. Moviegoers are a fickle bunch. Something that sounds or looks good on paper may not translate well when it finally hits the big screen. Universal Studios and John Carpenter learned that lesson the hard way with Halloween III: Season of the Witch.
Wow, we're already a month into 2012. Can you believe it? Hell, it seems like yesterday when we were looking forward to the New Year. Now, we're already 1/12 of the way done with it! Despite how fast it feels at the current moment, years are actually pretty damn long. Because of this, it's pretty easy to forgot about mediocre films. A year after the fact, I always gawk in amazement that certain films came out the year previously. It seemed like such a long time ago, yet it's only been twelve months. Below is fifteen of these films, the unsung losers of 2011. They may not be bad...but they are certainly forgetable.
Season of the Witch was a movie that didn’t quite hit the mark though it had its moments. The concept for the film is pretty cool. I mean, what is not to like about a medieval supernatural flick complete with knights, a witch, demons and possession, and a journey that you know will be fraught with danger around every turn? And though I’m down for a movie of this nature, excited (as a matter of fact) about the blending of medieval times and the paranormal, with this movie I felt that less would have definitely been more.
The new year begins with two of the worst movies to grace the screen in a long time. Happy new year, everyone! So which steaming pile of crap is worth your time or, more importantly, money this weekend? That's right, everyone: It's time for another Cinema Showdown!
