Witchfinder General amounts to nothing more than a full length Two Ronnie's sketch and contains about as much menace as well. Supposedly Vincent Price's finest moment according to some, I have to say I must have been watching a completely different film to others as I fail to see what is so great about this. The score is godawful and the acting atrotious.
Carry on Screaming is more terrifying, seriously avoid, don't believe me take a look I defy you to defend this garbage to me!
from the 'Royalist/Cromwell civil-war, with sadistic assistant 'John Stearn' (Robert
Russell) offer their services, at a price, to identify potential Witches living within the
communities of a fearful and superstitious villages of South-East Britain, carrying
out a torture and cleansing regime to extract a confession.
'Hopkins' and 'Stearn' are heading toward the small town of 'Brandistone' to investigate
accusations against the local Priest, 'John Lowes' (Rupert Davies)
The Priests niece 'Sarah' (Hilary Heath) is to marry 'Roundhead' Officer 'Richard Marshall'
(Ian Ogilvy) who in return has promised 'John Lowes' that he'll protect 'Sarah'
When 'Richard' learns of what has taken place in Brandistone' in his absence he takes
unofficial leave from his duties to pursue 'Hopkins' and 'Stearn' to serve justice upon them.
This is a nostalgic trip back in time giving an opportunity to reflect on a film we'd have viewed
as a Horror movie back in the late 60's.
The film of course does contain scenes of violence in the shape of torture, carrying out execution,
and some fight scenes.
This a 1968 movie that has been given an HD upgrade, which certainly gives a sharper picture
quality to that of a DVD version, some of the 80's and 90's upgrades are not as good in truth.
The film a journey into a bygone age in which the fearful and uneducated fell victim of ruthless

Nothing has changed. Some people here have said that this is Vincent Price's best film - I wonder if these people actually like his other films in that case. You dont even see him that much in the film. Yeah hes not as campy as usual and there is definitely no humour (or black humour) at all - this also doesnt help. This one has definitely dated but not in a good way. Its rather dull to be honest. The constant horse-riding, the constant zoom shots to face etc. Im not surprised the director was young at the time because it really shows to be honest. Vincent Price seems rather 'flat' to me in this, seems like hes not bothered if anything. Maybe that was part of the role but his heart doesnt seem in it to me.
I couldnt wait it for it to end to be honest. If you want to see Vincent Price at his best try Theatre of Blood, Dr Phibes, Pit & the Pendulum etc etc (I could go on).
