Full movie description "The Bloody Judge":Christopher Lee plays the Lord Chief Justice of 17th century England who condemns women as witches to further his political and sexual needs.
Reviews of the The Bloody JudgeSir Christopher Lee is excellent in this period drama from legendary cult filmmaker Jess Franco. The setting is 17th century England, during a period of civil unrest. Lee stars as Judge George Jeffreys, a harsh and unforgiving character who tries various unfortunate people for such things as witchcraft and treason. He shows no favoritism, even going after Harry Selton (Hans Hass Jr.), the son of his associate Lord Wessex (Leo Genn), and Harry's beloved, Mary Gray (Maria Rohm). It's all in the name of indulging his political ambitions and sexual desires.
Some Jess Franco fans will end up less than satisfied, as this isn't as utterly sleazy as much of Francos' 1970s output. Have no fear, though: there are a couple of torture scenes (albeit not nearly as graphic as what we would see today), a bit of female nudity, and one memorable scene of depravity. In this viewers' own humble opinion, this can rank right up there with Francos' best, as this is a slick and meticulous film, with fine production values, decent action scenes, and an exemplary cast. Considering its themes, it would make a fine companion piece with Michael Reeves' "Witchfinder General".
Lee may not be playing a very nice guy, but he's extremely commanding as always, and we even get to hear some of Jeffreys' inner monologue, as he decides that the ends are justifying his means. The always wonderful Genn (who replaced Dennis Price) provides indelible support. Franco regular Howard Vernon, Milo Quesada, Margaret Lee, and Pietro Martellanza all help to add gravitas to the proceedings. And the ladies are quite lovely to look at, especially Rohm (another frequent player in the Franco filmography).
This might not be to every Franco fans' tastes, but if one doesn't care too much for his trashier output, they're advised to seek this one out. The alternate title, "Night of the Blood Monster", does it no favors, as it makes it sound like it's a horror film, which it really is not.
Eight out of 10.
