My favourite Franco film... so far

"This is an amazing movie. It's basically an exploitation movie with the production values of an historical drama. The acting is outstanding, particularly Christopher Lee and Maria Rohm. Blue Underground have scraped together a magnificent print, taking elements from the various released and unreleased versions of the movie to produced an excellent film that's never existed in this form before. Given the patchwork history it seems like the movie should be a mess, but it all hangs together very well. The inclusion of alternate versions of some scenes in the extras department is very educational. The interview segments from this and the other Blue Underground released of Jess Franco/Harry Alan Towers collaborations could probably be edited into a great feature-length documentary.
Speaking of which, Blue Underground have now released all the Franco/Towers movies except for Count Dracula. I hope that's on the drawing board for the not-too-distant future!"

"A great improvement on the earlier 94 minute video.Blue underground have produced a version of this film that is both of excellent quality and quantity,approximately 10 minutes extra.As for the film itself Franco fans should not be disappointed.The battle scenes are somewhat tedious but Maria Rohm's exploits more than make up for that slight criticism.Anyone who has Witchfinder General or Mark of the Devil in their collection should certainly buy this."
