"[C]old and unflinching."

5 stars out of 5 -- "Michael Reeves' acidic reimagining of history was a riposte to the superficial glamour of 1968 Britain."

Product Description:

Set in 17th century England during the violent early days of Cromwell's rule, THECONQUEROR WORM is Michael Reeves' dark, violent tale of the infamous 17th century witchhunter, Matthew Hopkins (Vincent Price). A failed lawyer, Hopkins practiced his wicked trade throughout the British countryside for nearly a decade, capitalizing on the instability and tumultuous upheavals created by the English Civil War. After years of unchallenged torture and sadistic murder, the witchfinder finally meets his match when until he runs afoul of an army officer who vows revenge.
