Warlock: The Armageddon is the first sequel to Warlock, released in 1993. Julian Sands reprises his role as the Warlock in this installment.

The secret to defeating Satan's son has been kept hidden by the descendants of an ancient order of druids. When the Warlock is reborn, the Devil orders him to complete a set of seven magical runes spread across the country and destroy the druid warriors destined to slay him.

This film contains examples of:

  • And I Must Scream: The Warlock gets an art collector to hand over one of the rune gems that he is seeking by offering him "the greatest piece your gallery has ever seen." He didn't tell him that the collector himself would become that piece. Fully conscious and aware.
  • An Arm and a Leg: In order to get the penultimate rune from Franks, Warlock has him nailed on a wall, and cuts his right arm off with an axe to make him let go of it.
  • The Antichrist: The Warlock, who seeks to bring his father to earth to bring about Hell on Earth.
  • Destination Defenestration: Warlock get shot repeatedly with two shotguns, which send him flying through a store window.
  • Druid: The movie mashes it together with Christian mythology to some extent. The heroes are a secluded village of druids who have been in hiding ever since their ancestors were almost exterminated by a knightly order. Then the Warlock (the son of Satan) awakens, and must collect four ancient rune stones to defeat the druids and summon his father to bring about Hell on Earth.

  • Evil Wears Black: The next Warlock kills a side character and steals his clothing, noting with approval that it's black.
  • Express Delivery: The new Warlock is born when a Satanist preaches to the Devil. To her horror, she becomes massively pregnant within minutes and gives birth to a black, slimy thing which quickly morphs into Satan's new minion and kills his "mother."
  • Eyepatch of Power: Sported by the druid in the opening who is first one to be killed by the knights attacking the ceremony.
  • Fashion Show: Warlock finds the second rune at a fashion show, which is worn as a necklace by a fashion designer.
  • Fate Worse than Death: After an initial fake-out in which he believed he had escaped, an unlucky guy is forever trapped by the Warlock in a dark nightmare world beyond the mirror.
  • Finger Gun: After bullets fail to stop him, Warlock responds by imitating a gun with his right hand, and shooting his assailants by pointing at them. He then blows out the smoke coming from his "barrel".
  • Flight: Warlock can fly whenever he chooses to, and doesn't need any ingredients for it this time.
  • Gorn: The Warlock doesn't spare any power when it comes to murdering people in visceral fashion.
  • Hell on Earth: The Warlock, the son of Satan, tries to bring his master to Earth and bring about this scenario.
  • Hostile Hitchhiker: The warlock picks up a slutty woman on the road. Eventually he gets so annoyed with her that he scalps her before throwing her out of his vehicle.
  • Humanoid Abomination: While in the first movie the Warlock was 'just' an evil sorcerer who got his powers from potions and the movie's MacGuffin, here he's something much worse, and comes with frightening powers right out of the gate. The only thing even remotely human about him is his appearance.
  • Ignore The Fanservice: The Warlock picks up a promiscuous woman on the road, who then makes a pass at him in his car. He doesn't react at first, but eventually responds by scalping her and throwing her out so that he can smear his magical map made from human skin with blood.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Warlock makes the roof of Kenny's father's bookstore explode, and drops him on a piece of metal that goes through his body.
  • Magical Abortion: An odd film example comes in a flashback scene at the beginning. A nameless female satanist that has become mystically pregnant with the titular Warlock is shown having the full-term foetus exorcised out of her with mystical jewellery. No, seriously.
  • Mind over Matter: Part of Kenny's training into becoming a warrior druid involves of becoming proficient in levitating things with the power of his mind.
  • Rain of Blood: After Warlock finds the third rune, Kenny and Smantha find themselves under a torrent of blood pouring down from the sky.
  • Soft Glass: Averted. Warlock drops a woman through a skylight, and one of the bigger shards caused by the crash impales her through her abdomen.
  • Weird Moon: The moon is full for six days straight after the rebirth of Warlock.
  • Wipe That Smile Off Your Face: The Warlock pays an unscheduled visit to an office building to retrieve a magical artifact. When the front desk receptionist challenges his right to enter, he puts an end to the conversation by causing flesh to grow over her mouth. Later, he mentions the fate of the poor woman to her employer: "She's looking for a new opening."
