A true exploitation-horror classic
31 January 2016 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

In this non-Daninsky Naschy horror treat, an ugly, one-eyed servant takes revenge on the women who despise him for his looks by denouncing them as witches to the local judge, played by Naschy himself (who also directed) as a man who uses the rampant, murderous superstition of the day to also serve his own petty ends.

Naschy's witchfinder is in love with a local girl, the daughter of a ranking politician, who is having a fling with a guy who bears a stunning resemblance to a more rugged John Stamos. The witchfinder's religious mania proves a self-fulfilling prophecy as his lust and jealousy threaten to drive the girl not into his own arms... but into the arms of Satan!

There were a spate of Spanish Inquisition themed horror movies made in the late '60s and early '70s, and this is among the very best. All the trademarks are here, from cringe-worthy scenes of torture including a nipple-ripping, wonderfully creative scenes of Satan worshiping heathens, and, of course, as with most/all Naschy movies, naked ladies. I always remember the scene where the one-eyed servant steals the bathing women's clothes.

If you liked this, don't miss Witchfinder General, the one that started the craze for this type of movie.
