“Men Sometimes Have Strange Motives for The Things They Do.” — Matthew Hopkins, Witchfinder General

I’ve Been Rolling This Around in My Head ALL-WEEK…

…and I Simply COULD NOT DECIDE…

…How…

…OR…

…Where…

…I Wanted to Begin a Fun New “Bloggin’ing Series” with Y’all.

The Main-Point of said “Bloggin’ing Series”…

…IS…

…to Showcase…

“The Best FILMS and/or PERFORMANCES You’ve (likely) NEVER Seen!”

Sooo…

…Why Not Start with One of The VERY Best’est of The Best’est!!!

Tonight, I Bring You…

…Director Michael Reeves’ Cult-Horror/Thriller-Classic…

WITCHFINDER

GENERAL

…Starring…

VINCENT PRICE

…As…

Matthew Hopkins

WITCHFINDER GENERAL (1968)… Starring VINCENT PRICE… Directed By MICHAEL REEVES

Matthew Hopkins has ALWAYS Been My FAVORITE Character EVER Portrayed by Vincent Price, though I Originally Saw This Film Under It’s U.S.-Release-Title “The Conqueror Worm” in The 1980s.

Matthew Hopkins is an Opportunistic Witch-Hunter

…Who Roves The English Countryside in The Late-1600s…

Earning His Living

…Preying on The Fears of The Local Populace…

…as A Professional

…In The Realm of Obtaining Confessions… 

Through Interrogation

and Torture

…of Those Accused of Witchcraft.

First… Interrogation AND Torture…

Afterward…

…The Now “Confessed Witches” are Subsequently EXECUTED!

…And Then EXECUTION!

Vincent Price’s Performance as Hopkins…

…Is By Far…

…His Most Sadistically-Restrained…

…and Truly-TERRIFYING.

So Calm… So Cool… So CRAZY-SADISTICALLY-EVIL!!!

Sadly

…This Was Director Michael Reeves Final Film

…as He Died at Just 25-Years-Old (of a Drug-Overdose No-Less)…

…in Early-1969.

WITCHFINDER GENERAL

…Continues to be Heralded as…

…His Finest Film…

…and as Vincent Price’s.

Witchfinder General (aka The Conqueror Worm)… … …A Total MUST-SEE For True-Fans of The Genera… and of Vincent Price!!! You WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!
