Loved it. Even though I also enjoy Vincent Price's campy horror films, I enjoyed seeing him in this unique and more serious role. Lots of violence, but set in a pretty countryside setting and good acting. I think this is one of Vincent Price's best performances. Check it out!

A Gothic horror tale of the witchfinding business that was prevalent in England during the 16th century. Vincent Price is perfectly cast as Matthew Hopkins, the self-proclaimed witchfinder general, who along with his brutal sidekick, Stern, roam the English countryside preying on people's fears about the horrors of allowing witches to live. Unfortunately, all of the women that are hanged and brutally tortured are innocent, since Price and his lecherous sidekick do not get paid until the ''Lord's work is done''. After hanging a priest and raping a young english lady, Price runs afoul of her soldier fiance' and the search for revenge begins with the soldier in hot pursuit. Several more gruesome executions of innocent women follow before the solider mutilates Price and rearranges the face of his sidekick Stern in the process. Gory, but very well acted and fast moving. Not for the squeamish and youngsters.
