Witchfinder General

Released in 1968, Witchfinder General starred Vincent Price as the real-life Matthew Hopkins who during the English Civil War in the 17th century did mass killings of people he said were witches because he says he is the Witchfinder General, a position given to him by Parliament but it is a claim that is completely false.
This film is a heavily fictionalised account of Hopkins’ actions but this definitely what a horrific man Hopkins was and quite a terrifying atmosphere this movie presents and the ending sure rounded things off to reflect Hopkins’ actions.
