When a woman and her baby survive the plague after the death of her husband, she faces increasing hostility from the towns people leading to a Witch Finder (Sean Pertwee) brought in to ‘interrogate’ her. She must endure the hatred and torture of the Witch Finder all the while holding on to her own sanity.
Marshall’s film isn’t a horror film like what most fans of the genre today might expect instead it’s a throw back to films like “The Witch Finder General” and the Poe cycle of films that Corman made (albeit with a bigger budget). It’s worth checking out and a very good film.
I guess it's a kind of "slice of life" story in the bleakest way imaginable for the time.
I stayed engaged wondering what impact the hallucinatory devil would have, but it really didn't mean a thing in the end. They could have cut it from the film and it would have no impact on the story. A passive-aggressive "threat" that didn't even offer any substance towards her circumstances. It felt more like a check-the-box addition; like, they could have been going for more of a "VVitch" style of involvement, but it just didn't go anywhere.
Finally, while I'm sure the torture must have been unbearable, there wasn't really anything visceral to it, making her struggle seem a bit off the mark. Like, she didn't hobble, she wasn't really decrepit, and she basically seemed fine physically after the ridiculous amount of blood they supposedly cut from her. For instance, the Squire gets one little stick in his ribs and he's all like, "I'm done for," and she's full-strength swinging a sword around and flexing her Jackie-Chan-esque foot-stool defense maneuvers.
I guess it was worth watching once, but probably not twice.
Story really done well and so we’re all the scenes and Characters.
Sound and Music very nicely done.
The Torture and insensitivity in this Movie grinds thru too the End!
