Witchfinder General AKA The Conqueror Worm (1968)
"Vincent Price proves once again that he is still the greatest ghoul going" (Motion Picture Herald) in this thriller about a witch hunter who finds career satisfaction touring the English countryside hapless victims and putting innocent people to death in the name of purifying souls. It's a tale of "love, villainy and retribution" (Film Daily) and a "sadist's delight" (Los Angeles Times) for those who love historical bloodfests.
As superstition and fear sweep the Middle Ages, an educated rogue named Hopkins (Price) wanders from town to town proclaiming to be an official witch finder. Town leaders play him to accuse and then execute - usually innocent - suspects. But when a brave soldier returns home to find his sweetheart on the rack, ready to burn, Hopkins realizes he may have whacked his last witch!
