The Witchfinder General

A disturbing tale of evil set during the English Civil War. When Matthew Hopkins is appointed witchfinder general by the Puritans under Cromwell, he is empowered to travel the countryside with his henchmen and collect a fee for each witch from whom he extracts a confession - a policy which is exploited to the full.
