"Season Of The Witch" by Yojimbo

Two crusaders are pressured into becoming escorts for a suspected witch who is being transported to a monastery for trial. Season Of The Witch is a blatant attempt to jump on the Game Of Thrones swords and sorcery bandwagon, but whereas the successful TV show has a wealth of interesting characters, clever writing and excellent dialogue, this film has none of those things.

What's more the story seems to be taking an attempt at many different philosophic questionings and it never really seems to have the time frame or willingness to take stabs at them. In fact the ending of the film had me asking, "Who wrote this movie?! M. Night Shyamalan?" Probably a bit too much credit for Mr. S...
