In Boston of 1691, a warlock is sentenced to death, but escapes magically into the future (our present), followed doggedly by the witch hunter. There he is searching for the three parts of the Devil's Bible, trailed by the witch hunter and the woman whose house he landed in. They must stop him, as the book contains the true name of God, which he can use to un-create the world.
Satan also has one son.

- Scene in the theatrical previews indicating that the Warlock was the satanic Messiah was cut some time before video distribution.
The film was originally completed in late 1988 and was one of the last films completed by distributor New World Pictures when they filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The film's trailer was actually shown before early 1989 theatrical releases. Instead of going direct to video, Warlock was picked up and released in theatres by Trimark Pictures in 1991. It's box office success lead to a sequel, "Warlock: The Armageddon" in which Trimark also released theatrically.
SPOILER: The scene in the theatrical trailer involving the Warlock as the satanic messiah was cut after negative reactions from test screenings. The channelers death was originally much more violent. The scene involved a topless Mary Woronov being frozen after the devils eyeballs emerged from her breasts. The Warlock then stomps her to pieces to free them. After the wrap up, the scene was redone as what remains in the film.
