It is the time of the Spanish Inquisition. Maria does not like what is going on during the “Auto De Fe”. When she speaks out, she is arrested and accused of being a witch. Torquemada has plans for her! He orders her tortured, and her tongue to be cut out. Her husband attempts to free her…

If you’ve seen the classic Roger Corman version starring Vincent Price it’s hard to put it out of your head, but you probably should do because this one is totally different. Subtlety has been abandoned in favour of gross-out horror – nudity, gore and all-round unpleasantness. OK it’s ridiculous, trashy, sensationalised and historically dubious (did any members of the Inquisition really wear horn-rimmed glasses?), but despite all this it is strangely compelling.
