Witchfinder General (1968) ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Extra value Price

26 July 2017

This 60’s telling of Matthew Hopkins, the Witchfinder General, is a classic of it’s time, starring Vincent Price as the titular character, and featuring Ian Ogilvy. As the witchfinder general it was Hopkins’s task to find and destroy any witches on the English Isles, which according to legend, he managed with ease and brutality. Price manages to bring Hopkins to life as a nasty and vindictive, seedy little man with a draw towards torture and pain. Ian Ogilvy, playing Richard Marshall, who is angered when Hopkins attacks a local priest and his daughter. Toe to toe Ogilvy and Price really deliver excellent performances in this film and help drive the tension and action. This is a brilliant example of how you can make a film work with a semi- decent story and great actors, who needs a massive budget or CGI! A great film for fans of retro horror films or anybody looking to make a lazy Sunday afternoon that little bit more fun. Enjoy 🙂

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ (7/10)
