    Although Price wasn't as menacing as I've seen him before, it was a different Price for me. This one was sexually overt instead of romantically frightening. But at the same time, he seemed to have a guilt about it. Either way, my favorite part was spoiler Great movie, if only for that part alone. 10 years 8 months ago

    I saw Ken Russell's The Devils for the first time this year and honestly, I think Witchfinder General suffers by comparison. It felt like a very superficial experience--Hopkins just comes across as a mustache-twirling villain. No depth of insight into his character or the times that permitted such sadism in the name of Christ. 2 years 11 months ago
