Movie Info

The Devils was the Ken Russell film version of the controversial play by John Whiting. The story, based on Aldous Huxley's The Devils of Loudun, concerns controversial 17th century French priest Urbain Grandier, whose radical political and religious notions and profligate sex life earn him many enemies. When a group of nuns appears to have been "bewitched" by Grandier, his rivals feed on the resulting mass hysteria, using this incident as an excuse to have the priest arrested. Refusing to

Never letting up its energy, 'The Devils' is eye-ride.

Ken Russell at his excessively visual best and dramatic worst.

Quite frankly one of the greatest films ever made. Period. No qualifiers are necessary.

Audience Reviews for The Devils

This is any Cinefiles dream come true, Ken Russel adapting John Whiting adapting Aldous Huxley starring Oliver Reed and Vanessa Redgrave. Derek Jarman's set design is up there with 2001: A space Odyssey and Ben-Hur in my opinion. One of the greatest British films ever made.

One of my all time favorite movies, sadly missing a proper DVD release with the full uncut version to this day. Seems the movie keeps hitting nerves after 40 years. Oliver Reed gives the performance of a lifetime.

There have been quite a few movies on false accusations of witchcraft, but the highly extra-ordinary execution of the subject matter herein makes this one, one devil of a film.
