30. Michael Reeves’ Witchfinder General (1968)

What’s this, a secret Edgar Allan Poe adaptation starring Vincent Price? NOPE! Just a little Bucklecore historical fiction film about a man, his best friend, and their shared dream of accusing people of witchcraft, torturing them into confessing their witchery and devil-worship, and making a fortune in the process. What could be rapier than that? (see episode for additional sword puns). Join us as we delve into one of the Unholy Trinity of English Folk Horror grandpappies in the most 30th episode of Loathsome Things: A Horror Movie Podcast.
