Warlock – Halloween Horror Month Movie Spectacular 2013 Day 21

Warlock is another quintessential eighties movie. Two men chase each other, violently. It’s Terminator with magic. This is not a complaint, mind. Warlock may be formulaic, but it’s also entertaining. There’s never any doubt that the good guys will win in the end, with the closest possible margin. It’s the journey there that counts, and the route is scenic enough to make the trip worth it. There’s a good deal of humour injected in the story, though not so much that it takes over. There is also quite a lot of darkness to Warlock; this is an old fashioned witch indeed. And of course both witch and witch finder are played brilliantly by Julian Sands and Richard E. Grant.

About Ted Dahlberg

I'm a stoic, a pessimist, a bookworm, a skeptic, and possibly other things which take more than one word to say.
