Season of the Witch : Similar films?

Similar films?

Loved both Black Death and this for many reasons, although I admit both of them had their flaws. Can someone recommend similar-themed films, please? Especially with regard to the atmosphere (grim/bleak), topics (witches/occult), etcetc.

Re: Similar films?

You might enjoy Solomon Kane (2009) and Dark Relic (2010).

Re: Similar films?

I didn't find many flaws in Black Death especially compared to this film, which I actually struggled to sit through, but another reviewers suggestion of Solomon Kane is a great recommendation, alternatively you could go back a while into more classic films such as Blood on Satans Claw, Witchfinder General and the Wicker Man. More modern examples could be Kill List.

Re: Similar films?

I'm surprised no one has mentioned "The Name of the Rose", in which Ron Perlman also appears - as a hunchback. (Sean Connery plays a medieval monk investigating a series of mysterious deaths in an isolated abbey.)

I'm not usually a fan of supernatural films, but enjoyed this and even stayed up late to watch my recording of it. Like others here, I would have preferred a different, less demonic, last 20 minutes.

Quite probably because it's not a supernatural fantasy film. Umberto Eco would probably not appreciate a comparison being drawn between this film and The Name of the Rose.🐭
