Some witch hunters are torturing women, accusing them of having done evil, although you get the feeling they are mostly just taking out their frustrations on these girls who wouldn't give them the time of day.

The biggest default in this film is the lack of a coherent and properly elaborated screenplay.
He'd rather see them burn, than enjoy life and love with anyone else. Overall, this is a solid film notable for some ambiguity and a lingering, grim nature.

Mit der Inquisition hat die katholische Kirche nun die Möglichkeit, in ganz Europa systematisch gegen Häretiker vorzugehen. One by one beautiful women are tortured on the rack then burned at the stake. No-one seems able to halt the Inquisition's reign of terror or the baseless accusations that cause so many innocent deaths. Even more amazing than that are the amount of mind-numbing clips from other Mondo Macabro releases which round up this release.
The latter would be especially resonant in Spain where in very recent times the Church had been a big supporter of the repressive Franco regime. Vincent Price would never have fallen for that. But no amount of torture will ever compare to his own personal demon: the act of lust, which he happens to feel an awful lot of towards former Italian beauty contest winner Daniele Giordano.

Unfortunately this leaves him looking a little like Blackadder; slightly too cuddly to ever be taken too seriously. Highly recommended A far portrait of the real inquisition that took place in Europe, Paul Naschy also directed under the psedonym of Jacinto Molina, the picture is an inconceivable under many aspects, during Spanish Inquisition Torquemada and their mad followers pursuit heretics people mainly women called witches and under the worst atrocious tortures they get a confessions, this picture there's a single woman who fit in this early descriptions, a nudity exploitation is quite easily extensive, in the scenes where they burning at stake are totally inaccurate, as fictional movie is plenty acceptable, the old village seems alike France during 15th century, also about the black plague that devasteted such places, even so many empty spaces a interesting picture!!! The tyrannical rulers, are draining the public, there is little sustenance for the poor, and witchcraft is blamed for many troubles.
