WITCHFINDER GENERAL aka THE CONQUEROR WORM
Evil spreads across the English countryside as witch hunter Vincent Price literally needles confessions out of suspected witches while collecting money from local magistrates. Burnings, drownings and hangings are all in a day's work, as Price gives his most brutal, scornful and bullying performance, drained of camp.
