The time of the witchhunts: While the plague roams the countryside, Magistrate Bernard (Paul Naschy) & his 2 aides, Peter & Nicholas, go about their business & torture & burn people whom they believe to be witches, seemingly as the invincible force of god. But then Bernard encounters Catherine, daughter of the house of a nobleman he's staying at, & starts to show weak spots - not made any better by the fact that she believes him to be evil incarnate. Furthermore she is engaged to Jean ...

When Jean is killed though, under mysterious circumstances, she falls ill, & only her servant girl Madeline knows who could save her - Marbille, a real witch.

Marbille promises Catherine to have her master, the devil, show her who was really behind Jean's death, & of course it turns out to be Bernard. Meanwhile though, through Catherine's father's death, Bernard has gained custody of Catherine & her sister Elvire, 6 Catherine decides to use his weakness for her against him, thus seduces him & soon they have a steamy affair.

In the meantime though, treacherous Renabert, who has sold many a wench to the witchhunter, spills the beans about the affair as well ass Catherine being a witch to his aide Nicholas, who is at first only reluctant to believe him. But when later he tries to rape Elvire but is killed instead for his efforts & only has time enough to write a testimony of Bernard being in league with a witch, will Nicholas believe him, & torture & burn both Bernard & Catherine. But the 2 not even wholly burnt, the first cases of the plague are reported in the village - & they thought they had troubles before !


An easy to love, easy to detest witchhunt movie, made in the wake of Witchfinder General (1968) & its many successors, this one is filled with sex & violence, & though it lacks considerably in the story department - being pretty much indecisive if the witchhunters are just self-righteous bastards or really hunting witches, & if the witches are actually in league with satan or just cases of hysteria (as one character explains, being centuries ahead with his opinion) -, it's a rather enjoyable trashy romp that keeps things going at an acceptable pace & every now & again throws in some nude torture-scene as a crowdpleaser. 

You might detest movies made on such a premise altogether - but just as well you might love them.
