WARLOCK COLLECTION REVIEWED
“Warlock Collection” brings all three unrelated Warlock movies together in one set. Whether it’s Julian Sands working magic under Miner or Hickox or Bruce Payne, the films are fun horror jaunts. I don’t remember Vestron putting this one out during its initial home video run. The film went quickly to Trimark, after New World Productions dissolved shortly before its release. That didn’t stop Europe and other territories getting it nearly 2 years before America.
The two sequels were practically DTV, but they didn’t feel beholden to the rather one-and-done nature of the first film. While most straightforward classic horror fans will appreciate Miner’s cross-time caper, the other two movies explore distinct styles. Anthony Hickox serves up his usual slightly gory take in the sequel. The third film feels very much like a late 90s push to keep an aging franchise going. Remember when Miramax used to pump out Hellraiser and Children of the Corn sequels like they didn’t cost a dime?
Honestly, between the plethora of special features and the love felt commentaries…these movies still have a home. So, pick it up.
