Michael J. Bassett’s period piece Solomon Kane landed on VOD yesterday, August 24th, and to celebrate its long awaited release, a new clip has arrived that’s full of exactly what we were hoping to see from this flick. Check it out!

Max Von Sydow (The Exorcist), Pete Postlethwaite (The Omen remake), Rachel Hurd-Wood (Perfume: The Story of a Murderer), and Alice Krige (Silent Hill) all star alongside James Purefoy in Michael J. Bassett’s tale of a 16th Century Puritan tormented by his past evils. Following the film’s current VOD run, it will receive a limited theatrical release on September 28th.

Synopsis
Captain Solomon Kane (Purefoy) 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 (Hurd-Wood) — 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. We watched this on VOD last night – a little cheesy, a lot pulpy, and Purefoy tends to over-emote during the really dramatic scenes; but the creatures are awesome, it looks amazing, and we had a blast with it. If you’re a fan of this type of period piece flick, check it out – it doesn’t disappoint!

    • It’s still the best version of Howard put on film. Some of it works but a lot doesn’t. However compared to the last Conan film this is a home run.
