Solomon Kane

Synopsis: Once a mercenary of Queen Elizabeth I fighting Spaniards in Africa, Solomon met the Devil's Reaper and discovered he was bound for hell. Barely escaping, he soon renounced violence to atone for his past sins, seeking out redemption in a life of peace. That is until the followers of sorcerer Malachi kidnap a Puritan girl, Meredith Crowthorn, and brutally slaughter her family before his very eyes, forcing Solomon to take up arms and return to his violent ways once more to rescue her.

There was a time when the world was

plunging into darkness and chaos.

A time of witchcraft and sorcery.

A time when no-one stood against evil.

Fire!

Yes?

Where is the throne room?

No?

Good lad. Good lad.

Now...

...let not one of these

putrid heathens live.

There's something in here with us.

No treasure is worth this.

Silence, you dogs.

Hold steady!

Captain, there's devilry here,

I knew it.

I said, "hold steady".

I am the only devil here!

Now...

...follow me!

Here it is, boys!

I've found it.

Malthus!

Solomon.

Solomon.

Killer.

Solomon.

What... are you?

I am the Devil's Reaper.

I am here to claim you,

Solomon Kane.

Your deal is done.

What deal?

I made no deal.

There was a deal...

...and your soul is the price.

Your life of murder...

...and greed is over.

You cannot take my soul.

Bow your head before me.

The Devil will have his due.

No!

You can tell your master

that I am not yet ready for Hell.

The Lord protects me.

Fool! He has abandoned you.

On your knees.

Never!

You'll never take my soul!

Take his soul.

Never!

You cannot escape us.

Your soul is damned!

Solomon?

Who's the novice?

This is Brother Thomas.

He joined us only a few days ago.

Those marks, do they...

- really protect you from Satan?

Mind what you name

in this holy place.

I would like to speak

with Solomon alone.

Once again we heard

your cries at matins.

My dreams.

My dreams do haunt me still.

You would do well to listen to

what your dreams tell you.

I do.

My dreams tell me only

that I am damned.

God protects His own.

I am not one of His own...

...am I?

My enemies are...

...are ever watchful of me.

But this place...

...this place and these prayers...

...symbols...

...they are all that hide me

from its gaze.

Solomon...

...these months you've been here...

...l've felt a shadow growing over us.

These are dark times.

I prayed for guidance...

and I was answered.

Solomon... you must leave us.

Why? I...

...I live here in solitude.

I do no harm.

I've renounced my evil ways,

my power.

I'm learning...

learning to be a man of peace.

I know you are, but your future

is not here with us.

How could you do this to me?

I have given all my wealth to the Church.

We're grateful for your generosity,

but you must understand...

No. Father.

Do not... do not make me beg.

This place is a...

is a sanctuary to me.

Where would you have me go?

You must go home.

Home?

You're of noble birth...

...you have lands in the west,

you must return to your inheritance.

Solomon...

No! I cannot return home.

Nor can you remain.

I was told in my dreams

he was to be sent from here.

I listen to what I'm told.

Does Kane know his purpose?

Every man must discover

his own destiny.

Kane must find his purpose.

There are many paths to redemption.

Not all of them peaceful.

Pilgrim!

Offer you a ride?

Thanks, friend, but no.

Well, the road ahead should

not be travelled alone.

Again, I'll thank you

for your offer.

I'll be walking.

As you wish.

God be with you.

And with you too, sir.

Ma'am.

- He'll hear us.

- I don't care.

Let him hear me.

Move and you die.

I don't want any trouble.

Well, that's too bad.

Because you've already got it!

Let's have a look.

Nothing worth stealing.

Nothing? You got nothing?

- Are you a priest?

- Just take what you want.

Oh, don't you worry,

pilgrim, we will.

Stay still.

Look at this.

These are magical symbols.

I say he's a sorcerer.

What shall we do with you, eh?

Shall we burn you as a witch?

Burn him! Burn him!

There's murder

in your eyes, traveller.

Would you kill me? Eh?

Huh? Would you?

No.

What?

You won't kill the man

who steals from you?!

I will not fight another man.

I have renounced violence.

Well, that's a shame

because we haven't.

You will do as I say, Solomon.

Don't forget your place.

You are the second son only.

Marcus is my heir.

He will be master of these

lands on my death.

But, Father,

Marcus is a brute and a bully!

You will take holy orders and

join the Church as I command.

But I do not want to be a priest.

What you want is of no importance.

Father Simnal is here to

take you to the abbey.

I won't go.

If you defy me,

you will have nothing.

I will cut you off.

You will be a landless vagrant.

Is that what you want?

Walk out now and

you may never return.

Do not defy me!

Be calm.

Be calm, sir.

Be calm, you are safe.

He's awake.

Father!

Father, that man, he's awake.

Here... take a drink

of water if you can.

Careful. Careful.

Meredith.

His fever has broken, Father.

Thank the Lord, sir.

You will be well.

My name is Crowthorn.

William Crowthorn.

My daughter Meredith

has been tending you.

The good Lord must be

watching over you, sir.

He guided us to your rescue.

Edward, pull over.

We'll find a place to make

camp for the night.

Shall I put these down here, Mother?

Yes, thank you, Meredith.

Step lively, Meredith.

Samuel.

Water the horses.

Why me?

Your older brother

has given you a task.

See you set to it.

Master Kane.

You should be resting.

I can hardly repay

your hospitality.

...with idleness, Ma'am.

Give me a few moments to clean up,

I'll come and help you as I can.

You've regained your appetite,

Master Kane.

It's a fine meal,

Mistress Crowthorn.

My Katherine can make

anything taste good.

Leather boots and nettles last Sunday.

It certainly was not!
