Warlock: The Armageddon

MPAA Rating: R

Entertainment: +1

Content: -4

The demon Warlock (Julian Sands) is born to a possessor of the "birth" stone during a lunar eclipse. His mission is to collect six stones, guarded and used by druids (wizards) to prevent Satan's release from Hell. If the stones are gathered, only light can prevent the release of Satan. The druids are called "God's guardians of the earth." Warlock performs graphic atrocities, such as eating a small dog, dropping a fashion model through a skylight, impaling a female dwarf, ripping the hair off a female hitchhiker and crucifying a woman upside down in front of the church. A druid warrior shoots his son, then resurrects him and a girl druid also "dies" by stabbing herself in front of her father. Two female models stop to kiss on a fashion runway. Warlock asks, "how can you believe in a God who can't control his creation?", implying God is not in control. Although good wins over evil, it's better to let the Light shine in your life and avoid this dark movie.
