Review of Maleficarum

Here’s another great review of Maleficarum posted on a great blog:


Amy Hesketh has a bucket of water tossed in her face in the movie Maleficarum.

Well, this is highly unusual for my blog to feature a film like this. Why do I say that? Well this film is very hard to catagorize. It is not a “torture porn” film like the recent crap being made, nor does it fit into any other genre of films I usually review.

I guess I would put it in the group of films like Inquisition, El Inquisador and Bloody Judge, but it isn’t a witch hunting film either. It is a story that is at once horrific and will make you sit up and take notice.
It involves two young women who are brought to the Inquisiton by the church, who really only wants the money and possessions of one of the women. They are accused of every stupid and silly things that people say about them and they are stripped and tortured in many various and painful ways by the church.

Both are whipped, burned, stretched on the rack and many other atrocities. This is not a pleasant film and the ending with burning at the stake for one of the women is not at all easy to watch.
Both women are beautiful and they are naked thru 99% of the film. The torture isn’t presented in an exploitative way, but in a way that makes you understand the horrors of the acts against these women.

Lovely Amy Hesketh is Mariana de castro and Mila Joya is Francisca de la Cruz, the two women who are brought before the inquisition. Both women do a fine job and Amy REALLY suffers for her art here folks.
Director Jac Avila knows how to make a damn good story and not make it too exploitative.

If you get the chance, you will want to see this film, but please know it has ample violence and both women are nude throughtout the entire film, except the very beginning and the end.
Highly Recommended!!

In essence, the domain of eroticism is the domain of violence, of violation.
