Warlock (1989)

Director: Steve Miner

Stars: Julian Sands, Lori Singer, Richard E. Grant, Allan Miller, Mary Woronov

In 17th-century New England, witch hunter Giles Redferne captures an evil warlock, but the conjurer eludes death with supernatural help. Flung into the future, the warlock winds up in the 1980s and plans to bring about the end of the world. Redferne follows the enchanter into the modern era and continues his mission, but runs into trouble in such unfamiliar surroundings. With the help of a young woman, can Redferne finally defeat the warlock?

This was a decent horror that was trying to mix some comedy scenes and dialogue in it. The story was a bit odd to me. The part about an evil witch coming to the future was the best part of the story. The rest of it was a bit weak with a witch hunter following the witch to the future. This could have just been the story, but no, they wanted more.

Then there is a woman, Kassandra,  that gets caught in the middle of all it. She is about the worst part of the whole movie. In her character is where they really try to place most of the comedic lines and scenes in the movie. She was not really funny. For me, it came more as stupid than funny. It was just not needed at all.

Julian Sands was pretty good in this movie, but most of his roles are kind of the same. Lori Singer was annoying in this movie to me. Her character was just too stupid at times that took you right out of the movie. Her acting was not that great as well. The rest of the cast was decent.

This is just one of those average horror movies. It is one of those that you would watch, if nothing else was on. It is not good or bad. It is just average. Enjoy.
