Episode 78 - Pros and Cons of Witch Hunting

It is off to Merrye Olde Englande this time, for two amazing tales of witches and their hunters. We start with 1968's The Witchfinder General ( also known as The Conqueror Worm ).  We were lucky enough to watch the Director's cut of this amazing story based on the true story of Matthew Hopkins who did his best to rid the British countryside of witches in the 1600's. We then turn to 1971's The Blood on Satan's Claw which takes the idea of witches VERY seriously and shows us a tiny British village that is beset by a coven of young evil-doers who are up to all sorts of dastardly deeds.
Let us know what you thought of the show by sending email to flickersfrom@gmail.com or flickersfrom@yahoo.com or just leave a message on our Facebook page.
