In seventeenth-century France, a promiscuous and divisive local priest, Urbain Grandier (Oliver Reed), uses his powers to protect the city of Loudon from destruction at the hands of the establishment. Soon, he stands accused of the demonic possession of Sister Jeanne (Vanessa Redgrave), whose erotic obsession with him fuels the hysterical fervour that sweeps through the convent.

With its bold and brilliant direction by Ken Russell, magnificent performances by Oliver Reed and Vanessa Redgrave, exquisite Derek Jarman sets and sublimely dissonant score by Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, The Devils stands as a profound and sincere commentary on religious hysteria, political persecution and the corrupt marriage of church and state.

I saw this film on it's cinema release in the 70's - I didn't sleep for a week! What a powerful, shocking film - looking forward to owning it on dvd when it comes out - see it at your peril! Execellent.

 AMAZING!!!

I saw this film when I was at uni when Mark Kermode aired it along with a documentary on channel 4. I still have it taped off the telly and watch it regularly.
This is a shocking and amazingly powerful film. It might offend the religious but it will intrigue at the same time. The casting and performances are brilliant and anyone who considers themselves a serious fan of cinema MUST see this film!!!
