Witchfinder General 1968 Vincent Price
Stars: Vincent Price, Ian Ogilvy, Rupert Davies
As superstition and fear sweep the Middle Ages, an educated rogue named Hopkins wanders from town to town proclaiming to be an official witch-finder. Town leaders pay him to accuse and then execute usually innocent suspects. When a brave solider returns home to find his sweetheart ready to burn, Hopkins realizes he may have whacked his last witch.
England is torn in civil strife as the Royalists battle the Parliamentary Party for control. People become distracted from rational thought and this allows unscrupulous men to gain local power by exploiting village superstitions. One of these men is Matthew Hopkins, who tours the land offering his services as a persecutor of witches. Aided by his sadistic accomplice John Stearne, he travels from city to city and wrenches confessions from “witches” in order to line his pockets and gain sexual favors. When Hopkins persecutes a priest, he incurs the wrath of Richard Marshall, who is engaged to the priest’s niece. Risking treason by leaving his military duties, Marshall relentlessly pursues the evil Hopkins and his minion Stearne.
