His modern gal tag along is noneother than Lori Singer [Footloose] who sports a really tortured hairdo herself. [Where's the hot oil treatment when you need one?] She does a nice job with the role even when they have to apply tons of old lady make-up on her face for several scenes in the film. My only beef is that when they portray her as a 60 year old, she hobbles around like a 90 year old. It feels a nit overdone.
Speaking of effects, they are really nice in Warlock. I especially like the way the Warlock conjures up fire from his fingertips. The look of the flames is actually quite beautiful. The rest of the effects are solid as well and work really well on screen.
The icing in the cake is a great script and beautiful music by composer Jerry Goldsmith [Star Trek movies, Omen] who has more movie credits attached to his resume than I can mention. His score elevates this film high above many cheesy synth driven scores that appeared in 1980's films. Director Steve Miner keeps the action humming along nicely and doesn't let the special effects overpower the story. I think Warlock is a classic and should be seen by everyone. Don't miss it.
