LOS ANGELES, CA - July 19, 2012 - Captain Solomon Kane is a brutally efficient 16th Century killing machine. Armed with his signature pistols, cutlass and rapier, he and his men unleash their bloodlust as they fight for England in war after war on all continents!

As the story opens, Kane and his band of pillagers are carving a bloody path through hordes of defenders in an exotic city in northern Africa. But, when Kane decides to attack a mysterious nearby castle to plunder its rumored riches, his mission takes a fateful turn. One by one, Kane’s men are picked off by demonic creatures until he alone is left to face the Devil’s own Reaper -- dispatched from the depths of Hell to lay claim to his hopelessly corrupt soul. Though Kane at last manages to escape, he knows that he now must redeem himself by renouncing violence and devoting himself wholly to a life of peace and purity.

His newfound spirituality, however, is quickly put to the ultimate test when he begins his journey across an England ravaged by diabolical human Raiders controlled by a terrifying, masked Overlord. After Kane fails to thwart the brutal slaughter of the Crowthorns, a Puritan family that has befriended him, he vows to find and free their enslaved daughter Meredith -- even if it means jeopardizing his own soul by re-embracing his murderous talents for a higher cause. His determined search eventually brings him face to face with his family’s own deadly secrets as he attempts to save Meredith and all of England from the forces of evil.

  1. Hi Carl :) . Hope you are well. Too long not stopping by & chatting all things movies !. I really thought this was the proposed sequel that had been made under the radar & was getting a V.O.D preview. Love the original 2009 movie that this is & Incredible that you guys in the States are only just now getting to see. A real favourite of mine. James Purefoy does this type of movie great justice. I also really like him in the more recent Ironclad which is relentlessly Action packed & surprisingly gory. Delicious stuff & a Must have on DVD to accompany Solomon Kane :) .

    1. Hey Carl :) . There are some deliciously dark moments in the movie. Purefoy is perfectly cast. Many favourite scenes & the CGI works well in this film. The scene with the soldiers being attacked by demons coming out of the mirrors in the castle hall sequence is teriffic. A great return to magical film making & rated R :) .So hope that they do make a sequel to this. I'd buy it off the back of this. Great to chat again Carl :)
