Stone-cold classic Witchfinder General will get a more than welcome airing in June in the UK thanks to our good friends at The Horror Channel.

Sure, they have a number of other films taking a bow in the month, but to be honest the Michael Reeves/Vincent Price gem was always going to grab our attention.

Anyways, here’s the press release:

Horror Channel has eight prime-time weekend film premieres in June including the UK premieres of RETREAT, Carl Tibbets’ ‘ménage a trois of terror’ starring Thandie Newton, Cillian Murphy and Jamie Bell and R.D. Braunstein’s smartly gripping I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE 3: VENGEANCE IS MINE – widely seen as the best of the series.

There are also network premieres for Jennifer Lynch’s uncompromising and dark chiller CHAINED, William Malone’s gruesome cyber thriller FEARDOTCOM, starring Stephen Dorff and Natascha McElhone and Michael Reeves’s highly acclaimed WITCHFINDER GENERAL, starring Vincent Price.

In a deadly virus catching month, other highlights are first channel showings for John Pogue’s [REC] inspired scareline QUARANTINE 2 TERMINAL, Breck Eisner’s critically-acclaimed remake of George Romero’s 1973 movie, THE CRAZIES and James Cameron’s directorial debut PIRANHA 2: THE SPAWNING starring Lance Henriksen and plenty of flying killer fish.

To be honest, there are plenty of interesting titles there – and who doesn’t want to get a chance to savour Piranha 2?

But it simply has to be Vincent for us – here’s a trailer:
