Story Movie

"Witchfinder General" is a gripping historical drama set in 17th century England during the height of the witch trials. Directed by Michael Reeves, this 1968 film follows the ruthless witch hunter Matthew Hopkins (played by Vincent Price) as he travels through the countryside, exploiting the fear and superstition of the era for personal gain. With his sadistic methods and lack of empathy, Hopkins terrorizes innocent villagers, accusing them of witchcraft and subjecting them to brutal interrogations and executions.

The film's protagonist, Richard Marshall (played by Ian Ogilvy), is a young soldier determined to stop Hopkins' reign of terror. As Marshall witnesses the horrors inflicted upon the accused, including his own fiancée Sara (played by Hilary Dwyer), he becomes consumed by a desire for revenge. The conflict between Marshall and Hopkins escalates into a deadly game of cat and mouse, with each man willing to go to extreme lengths to achieve their goals.

"Witchfinder General" is renowned for its atmospheric cinematography, which captures the bleakness of the English countryside and the brutality of the witch trials. The performances, particularly Vincent Price's chilling portrayal of Hopkins, are praised for their intensity and depth. The film's exploration of themes such as power, corruption, and the abuse of authority resonates with audiences to this day, making it a timeless classic of British cinema.

Review 4K Movie

Like "The Devils", "Witchfinder General" (also called "The Conqueror Worm") is likely to disturb a lot of people through it's portrayals of witch hunts. This one portrays England during its civil war in the 1640s. With the people paranoid enough to accept anyone, puritan Matthew Hopkins (Vincent Price) goes around coercing witchcraft confessions out of women, and summarily executing them in the most vicious ways possible.

Things get ugly when Hopkins targets priest John Lowes (Rupert Davies). You see, Lowes' niece Sarah (Hilary Dwyer) is engaged to Cromwell soldier Richard Marshall (Ian Ogilvy). And Marshall may have a heart of gold, but he will go to any length to protect his beloved. And I mean ANY LENGTH.

Vincent Price was always a trustworthy horror star, and this movie doesn't disappoint. It's certainly worth seeing, but you might want to avoid it if you have a weak stomach.
