Review: Witchfinder (2013)

First I´d like to thank Colin Clarke for contacting me and providing me with a online screener.
A small community lives in fear of the satanic evil that festers within the dark forests that surround their small village. One night, a love-struck villager ventures into the oppressive woods in search of forbidden magic and ancient rites. To aid them, the townsfolk enlist the aid of William Thatcher Blake, a witch hunter whose arrival stirs a cauldron of terror that threatens to engulf them all in a bloody pit of horror! Witchfinder is written and directed by Colin Clarke. The acting is solid, it´s professionally shot and edited. There are some really nice visuals in this and some scenes are genuinely creepy but due to spoilers I won´t go into details. It is a very ambitious flick from Colin Clarke and Daredevil Films with its historic setting, costumes, props and so on and must say that it looks great!  Its obvious that the filmmakers spent lot of attention and a large portion of the budget to make it look good. The soundtrack is nice. The pacing is good, the running time is approx 18 minutes. There is blood but no gore in this. There´s no nudity in this.
This review is based upon a online source provided by Colin Clarke
Rating: 7 out of 7. I enjoyed this a lot! Witchfinder is a great, ambitious and creepy short film. It´s very well made and should do well on the festival circuit. Make sure to check it out when showing at a festival near you, you won´t be disappointed!
