Witch against Witchfinder in this horror short
31 December 2013 | by emaildavehowarthSee all my reviews

Revenge is sweet in this short film Witchfinder, which to me is an obvious homage to the film Witchfinder General (1968) where the Witchfinder himself, Matthew Hopkins is played by the great Vincent Price, though more than just Witchfinder General, much of the Hammer film output is also referenced. Colin Clarke manages to conjure up the right mix of gore, fright and dialogue, or should I say lack of dialogue which I think the film is all the better for, leaving you, the viewer to fill in the gaps yourself. About two thirds of the film is shot at night with just the right amount of 'there's something in the shadows' to put that 'edge of the seat, 'what happens next?' fear into you. The rest of the film shot in daylight with the slightly washed out colourisation looking particularly striking and adding to the overall ambiance. The period is also well represented and the settings look almost Gothic or Salem like in nature. It has everything you'd expect from a film called Witchfinder. Looking very professional in its appearance all in all this is an enjoyable nineteen minutes of horror cinema.
