Witchmaker, The (movie)

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

A 1969 movie directed by William O. Brown. The video version is titled Witchkill and it stars John Lodge, Alvy Moore, Thordis Brandt, Anthony Eisley, and Shelby Grant.

A professor of parapsychology, Dr. Ralph Hayes (Moore), leads a group into the Louisiana swamp to investigate a string of murders of young women. He believes that witchcraft is behind these murders. One of his students, Tasha (Brandt), has psychic powers inherited from her own witch ancestors. Victor Gordon (Eisley), a reporter, is also part of the group.

The culprit is discovered—Luther the Berserk (Lodge), a powerful sorcerer who drinks the blood of his victims, which gives him the power to raise an army of dead. The story revolves around the ensuing battle between good and evil.
