(OK) Not aged a bit, strong in its barroquism, elegant functional set design (by Derek Jarman) and with the revulsive material of sex and religion and tortures. Reed's tragedy steals protagonism to Redgrave and the nuns stuff.
View all The Devils reviews
Cardinal Richelieu and his power-hungry entourage seek to take control of seventeenth-century France, but need to destroy Father Grandier - the priest who runs the fortified town that prevents them from exerting total control. So they seek to destroy him by setting him up as a warlock in control of a devil-possessed nunnery, the mother superior of which is sexually obsessed by him. A mad witch-hunter is brought in to gather evidence against the priest, ready for the big trial.

"First viewing - Apr. 18th Shudder Oh hey, now I see what influenced Benedetta the most. Couldn't pass up the opportunity to see The Devils when I noticed Shudder added it, as it's one of those films that's more often talked about than available to watch. And yes, it's very well made all around, plus undoubtedly & justifiably controversial at the time of its release. I appreciated the overall exploration of Christianity & its witch hunts, & the cast is mostly excellent. Ultimately though it's on"
