There is no question that "Season of the Witch" is laughably bad. Just watch the first ten minutes and you'll be cringing at the fact that Nicolas Cage just doesn't really fit into the time period he's portraying.
The film starts off with the hanging of three women expected to be witches. Only one of them I gathered actually was a witch (it is pretty obvious which one is), and the priests lack of finishing his ritual winds him up dead. This is where chessy special effects come in, as we are then thrust through about ten years of different battles with Nicolas Cage and Ron Peralman, as we try (but fail, mind you) to establish them as hardcore fighters. After slaying a bunch of women and children, not realizing who they are, Cage and Pearlman desert their holy cause. After a month, they run into a town that's been overrun by a plague that's been caused by this witch. They then are offered a quest to dispose of this witch.
Yeah, that's about as much as I really need to say. Despite some laughable scenes in which Cage disposes hundreds of wolves, you won't find the gem of a Cage film you were looking for here. Only a man acting in any and every movie he can simply because he's desperate for money.
