#95: Witchfinder General (Michael Reeves, 1968)


Because it's the closest thing ever made to a British western.

Love it! I'd never heard of this one, not even under its American alias, which I've now already forgotten, having looked it up on IMDb.

Keep bringing the recommendations! (I really am going to have to haul Gaslight 1.0 off my shelf here soon...)

The Conqueror Worm? Do try and get hold of it if you can. It's a staggeringly bleak bit of English pastoral Gothic, and there aren't many westerns you can say that about!
