Alorig with his Women In Love, Russell's The Devils benefits from a compelling
narrative that takes a contemporary look at past attitudes and events. A
bizarre tale of demonic possession and witchcraft in 17th century France,
that results in nass hysteria. Based on Aldous Huxley's The Devils of
Londun. Oliver Reed (as Father Grandier) and Vanessa Redgrave (as Sister
Jeanne) give truly captivating performances. Short: CONEY-Frank Morris.
