Warlock: The Armageddon Review


An order of Druids train their children to battle an evil Warlock determined to unleash Satan upon the world by bringing a collection of six mystic rune stones together.

Warlock: The Armageddon (1993) is an American fantasy thriller horror movie that is the sequel to Warlock (1989) in the title only. Director Anthony Hickox (Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth (1992), Prince Valiant (1997), Waxwork II: Lost in Time (1992)) did not execute this movie to its full potential. The movie contains nudity, sexual references, violence, blood and a few intense scenes.

Druids created light that vanquished darkness in the past by using magic rune stones in order to prevent the son of Satan from rising. Some Christians attacked the Druids while they were performing a ritual on a woman that Satan had chosen because the Christians thought the Druids’ ritual was Satanic. The magical rune stones became scattered as the Druids died. Now we go to the present where the Druids changed majorly from what they were in the past. We see a boy Kenny Travis and his girlfriend Samantha (Paula Marshall - Cheaper by the Dozen (2003), Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth (1992), Thursday (1998)) whose parents are Druids - Kenny and Samantha are madly in love, but have issues regarding their relationship. Some Druids still have magic rune stones that were passed down from their ancestors. Kenny’s father (Steve Kahan - Lethal Weapon 4 (1998), Conspiracy Theory (1997), Lethal Weapon 2 (1989)) explains Kenny‚Äôs destiny to him as a Druid. The Warlock is reborn and seeks the magic rune stones so that he can release his father Satan on Earth. Kenny soon learns that he has to protect the Earth and that he is the only one that can vanquish the Warlock. Kenny is now training for his upcoming battle.

Julian Sands (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011), The Killing Fields (1984), A Room with a View (1985)) did a fantastic job playing a dark, twisted and evil warlock. The CGI knife scene was horribly done wrong. The effects, music and light, added a nice touch to the movie, but it so desperately needed jump scares. The movie had potential but lacked the right directing skills. I would recommend this horror movie because others may like it more.
