Cry of the Banshee

Film, Horror
Screenwriter Chris Wicking's third collaboration with director Hessler is set in 16th century England, where evil spirit Mower exacts revenge on witch-hunting magistrate Price. Despite authentic location work and rather opportunistic flashes of graphic mayhem, this has none of the narrative concision, thematic richness or overall conviction of Michael Reeves' Witchfinder General, in which Price and Dwyer also appeared, two years earlier.
