Witchfinder General (1968) heading to Blu-ray by Odeon

Witch

It's a British horror classic, with Vincent Price at his menacing best in Michael Reeves' Witchfinder General. It's coming out on Blu-ray for the very first time, with Odeon doing the honours.

If you've not seen it, Price plats Matthew Hopkins, exploiting the power vacuum during the English Civil War by becoming the Witchfinder General, torturing and killing local village folk for cash with the help of his assistant, John Stearne (Robert Russell). But he goes a step too far when he kills a priest. Military hero Richard Marshall (Ian Ogilvy) who is engaged to the priest's niece, hunts him down amongst the English countryside, with the inevitable explosive ending.

The movie has undergone a full restoration for the high definition release, with extras also thrown in, including a new documentary on witchcraft and the persecution of woman by Witchfinder Generals, material on witchcraft and the English Civil war plus an interview with Vincent Price. You can pre-order now ahead of the June 13th release date, £14.93 is the price.
