  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

Captain Solomon Kane is a brutally efficient 16th Century killing machine. As the story opens, Kane and his band of pillagers are carving a bloody path through hordes of defenders in an exotic city somewhere in northern Africa.  When Kane and his men storm the flaming gates of a mysterious castle they discover that the castle is inhabited by demonic creatures. One by one, Kane’s men are picked off by the demons until he alone is left to face the Devil’s own Reaper – here to claim to Kane’s hopelessly corrupt soul. Though Kane manages to foil the monstrous Reaper, he knows that he now must redeem himself by renouncing violence and devoting himself to a life of peace and purity.

His newfound spirituality, however, is quickly put to the ultimate test when he begins his journeys across an England ravaged by diabolical human Raiders controlled by a masked Overlord. After Kane fails to thwart their brutal slaughter of the Crowthorns, a Puritan family that has befriended him, Kane solemnly 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.
