Things That Make Us Queasy In Nic Cage's Plague-Faced Witch Movie

Nicolas Cage is a sword-swinging, wig wearing Knight with fancy moves, going up against stomach-turning zombie people. It is revolting — just take a look at the stills we pulled from the new Season of The Witch trailer.

Technically, this may not be "urban fantasy," but then again, this is Nic Cage as a plague-fighting, witch-hating swordsman, so a facefull of the black plague couldn't stop us. Plus it's absolutely perfect for this weeks horror theme. So here's a full gallery of things that creep us out in the trailer.

Synopsis:

In the supernatural thriller SEASON OF THE WITCH, Nicolas Cage stars as a 14th century Crusader who returns with his comrade (Ron Perlman) to a homeland devastated by the Black Plague. A beleaguered church, deeming sorcery the culprit of the plague, commands the two knights to transport an accused witch (Claire Foy) to a remote abbey, where monks will perform a ritual in hopes of ending the pestilence.

A priest (Stephen Campbell Moore), a grieving knight (Ulrich Thomsen), an itinerant swindler (Stephen Graham) and a headstrong youth who can only dream of becoming a knight (Robert Sheehan) join a mission troubled by mythically hostile wilderness and fierce contention over the fate of the girl.

When the embattled party arrives at the abbey, a horrific discovery jeopardizes the knight's pledge to ensure the girl fair treatment, and pits them against an inexplicably powerful and destructive force.
