Here's an elevator pitch for you - imagine a fantasy horror film set in Medieval Europe, make it a cross between Con Air meets the Name of the Rose, and then add two of the same actors from said films, Ron Perlman and Nicolas Cage. Make your own mind up. Here's the first trailer for you, from Season of the Witch.

Actress Claire Foy (Amy Dorrit from the recent Little Dorrit TV adaptation of the Dickens classic) plays a witch suspected of starting the Black Death by making a deal with the forces of hell.

She has to be taken to a Papal trial, and two elite knights played by Cage and Perlman are the lucky sods who have to protect her both from their own side and the forces of darkness, all out to silence the witch before the terrible truth of the matter can be revealed.

Christopher Lee also makes a guest appearance. Well, he had to, didn't he?
