This is the first teaser trailer for Season of the Witch, from Gone in 60 Seconds director Dominic Sena, starring Nic Cage and Ron Perlman — that is, a guy whose face looks like a mask and a guy who’s usually wearing one, ha ch-cha cha cha.

14th-century knights transport a suspected witch to a monastery, where monks deduce her powers could be the source of the Black Plague.

I have to say, this trailer is a complete failure.  It chooses to focus solely on the spooky-Halloween-movie angle while ignoring the one aspect, which, above all else, is really going to sell this flick:  Nic Cage on a horse, motherf-cker!  POW!

The Nic Cage movie checklist:

  1. Awesome hair
  2. Shouting
  3. ???
  4. Profit

Also, if Nic Cage wasn’t in this picture, I’d be convinced these people were LARPing.  In fact, I’m still not convinced they arent.
