Product Description

In seventeenth-century France, a promiscuous and divisive local priest, Urbain Grandier (Oliver Reed), uses his powers to protect the city of Loudun 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.

Available on DVD for the first time, THE DEVILS is presented in the original UK X certificate version with these bonus features:

Introduction by Mark Kermode
Audio commentary with Ken Russell, Mark Kermode, Michael Bradsell and Paul Joyce
Hell on Earth (Paul Joyce, 2002, 48 mins): documentary exploring the film’s production and the controversial history
Director of Devils (1971, 22 mins): documentary featuring candid Ken Russell interviews and unique footage of Sir Peter Maxwell Davies recording his score
On-set footage with Michael Bradsell commentary(2012, 8 mins)
On-stage Q&A with Ken Russell (2012, 13 mins): the director in conversation with Mark Kermode at the NFT in 2004
Amelia and the Angel (Ken Russell, 1958, 26 mins): a delightful mix of religious allegory and magical fantasy
Original UK trailer
Original US trailer
Fully illustrated booklet featuring new essays by Mark Kermode, Craig Lapper (BBFC), and editor Michael Bradsell, with original production materials and on-set photographs

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent release as expected
By Raul G on December 18, 2021
An icónic and for some people, quite controversial film Is release in it's most complete and exciting form to date (that Is if WB ever release The full uncut versión, i have my firgers crossed on that).
This editions Is presentes by BFI, who usually does excente job and does very little to ruin their reputación.
I scanned really quick trough the film and i was pleased with the image, sure it's only on standards definition but for what It Is It was quite good.
The sounds Is very well mixed even if it's only mono and in AC-3.
The extras however are however what i was most interested about, with a nice booklet detailing the restorátion, and with essays by film critics Mark Kermode, Craig Lapper, and Sam Lashby about the story, the filmming process, the style and production design the censorship of the film. Im thelling you, this one Is interesting.
It also has a lot of bonus features, with audio commentaries,a new intro by Kermode. Trailers and a shorts film, this Is only disc one.
Disc two has even more extras with the following documentaries
Hell on Earth- from the year 2002
Director of devils.
Also, footage fron the set and a Q&A with Ken Russel himself.
My only little gripe Is that WB should release this on Blu Ray at least.
Oh well. Both discs are encoded on región 2 so you must have a compatible player in order to play them.

And finally, the devilery had no hassels and arrived on Time.

The package feels quite nice, although mine had some damage on the booklet which comes from the factory and that Is imposible to see unless someone opens the box and flips the booklet. Oh well.
