As more and more preview clips from director Dominic Sena's (Whiteout) long-delayed Season of the Witch are released, it's becoming increasingly more difficult to tell what the tone of the movie is supposed to be. While the costumes, makeup and set decorations are those of a dead-serious gothic horror movie, the dialogue between the main characters, Behman and Felson (Academy Award winner Nicolas Cage and Ron Perlman) is right out of some slapstick buddy-cop movie of the '80s. Watch these four new clips and decide for yourself whether the one-liners help to alleviate the oppressive medieval atmosphere of the movie or if they are just out-of-place enough to spoil the facade that this is a period horror thriller.
Season of the Witch was written by Bragi F. Schut and also stars Chrisopher Lee, Claire Foy, Ulrich Thomsen, Robert Sheehan, Stephen Graham, and Stephen Campbell Moore.
