The Bloody Judge is a 1970 horror film directed by Jesús Franco and written by Enrico Colombo, Jesús Franco, Michael Haller, and Anthony Scott Veitch. The film stars Christopher Lee, Maria Schell, Leo Genn, Hans Hass Jr., Maria Rohm and Margaret Lee. The film was released in Italy on February 5, 1970.[2]


Sir Christopher Lee plays the Lord Chief Justice of seventeenth-century Britain, who condemns women as witches to further his political and sexual needs.



According to Harry Alan Towers' biographer Dave Mann, the collaborations between director Jesús Franco and Towers were fraught with difficulties.[3] Franco explained that Towers liked doing co-productions with others and that the film was going to be an Anglo-American-German-Spanish-French-Italian co-production.[4] This led to many changes to suit producers in each country's needs, with Franco recalling that the film was at first a horror film with a historical backdrop, then more of a historical film with a background of inquisition, then primarily about the inquisition, then an erotic film.[4]


The Bloody Judge was released in Italy on 5 February 1970.[5] It was later released in West Germany on 5 June 1970.[1] The film was released in Spain on 20 April 1971 as Proceso de las Brujas.[6] The film had 688,928 admissions in Spain.[6] It was released on DVD in the UK by Salvation Films in 1999.
