Witchfinder General (1968)

Witchfinder General (1968) Poster

*** out of 5

Not the masterpiece it is sometimes proclaimed to be, but better than its budget should have permitted. the first hour could have been cut in half and dramatically improved the pacing. But Vincent Price is reliably diabolical in the title role, with robert russell as his vicious partner whose lust for cruel violence is genuinely terrifying. The ending is rather grim, but suitably so, given the subject of the film.
