‘Witch’ Genre is This Flick?

Variety reports on a new flick from MGM entitled Season of the Witch, but what genre this flicks falls under is beyond me. “MGM paid mid- against high-six figures for the project that revolves around a group of knights in 14th century France who must transport a woman accused of witchcraft to a mountain abbey, where the monks will seek to understand and destroy her powers, believed to be the source of the Black Plague.” Variety also writes that, “Last year, Schut’s script The Last Voyage of the Demeter, about the ship that carried Dracula’s coffin from Transylvania to England, was set up at Phoenix Pictures. Robert Schwentke is attached to direct.”
