"24.7 (uusintakatselu) Tämä jos mikä elokuva ei ole saanut kunnon formaattia osakseen. Käppäinen ulkoasu sekä jälkeenpäin lisättyjen kohtausten VHS-kuvanlaatu sopii näinkin pienellä budjetilla tehdyn ja aikaisekseen rohkean kauhuelokuvan tunnelmaan, mutta huono äänenlaatu ja tekstitysten puute hankaloittaa katselukokemusta. Arrow voisi ottaa tehtäväkseen restauroida tästä BD-julkaisun. Vincent Price on Vincent Price ja varsinkin karut kidutus- ja teloituskohtaukset kuvastavat hy"

" Vincent Price makes one of his most believable and darkest character portraits playing the real witch hunter Matthew Hopkins. The movie is pretty brutal with sex and torture mixed together. It feels authentic and believable. Especially, the ending is pretty grim. "

Film Journal - June 2016 (32 movies items)

"Really dark, unpleasant and brutal period horror film, with the always great Vincent Price as one of the villains. It's definitively more of a "torture n' gore" shock-film than actually being a creepy or scary film, but the acting elevates it above the level of similar and more exploitive films from that time."

"20th of April, Internet Ajan hammas ei ole juurikaan purrut tätä kauhuelokuvan kulttiklassikkoa ja Noidantappajat on edelleen yhtä shokeeraavaa katsottavaa kuin 50 vuotta sitten. Vincent Price on hyytävä hirviömäisenä Matthew Hopkinsina, kuka vainoaa noituudesta epäiltyjä naisia halki sisällissodan kahtiajakamaa keskiajan Englantia. Kidutus- ja teloituskohtaukset ovat todella ahdistavaa katsottavaa ja verinen väkivalta aikakauden elokuvalle vedetty äärimmilleen. Metalliyhtyeiden t"
