I remember watching this film on TV in the 1970s on WPIX Channel 11 in NYC.

Lush, brooding and somewhat perverse, this highly atmospheric 17th century British horror film made few ripples on original release, but has come to be regarded on par with its evil twin Witchfinder General, another stylish amalgamation of satanic superstition and bleak tragedy. Disjointed at times, but high on the list of superior fright films of the 70s.
