Summary: It throws in every medieval cliche: witches, flagellates, torture devices, crucifixion, lots of stabbing and cutting - yet for all the blood and flowery language, it was a pretty tepid film. Unless you're in the mood for straight-up violence, best to avoid.

Excerpt: When you see the trailer to this movie, sadly, you don't have to see no more. So, if you expect a good history mystery, don't. Beside the elements, and just elements, of mystery it's a movie with a very predictable plot about an estranged monk, a vengefull knight and a pale maiden who just happens...
