The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

The Devils (1971)

Starring: Oliver Reed, Vanessa Redgrave
Director: Ken Russell

A priest starts gaining too much political power.  A group with in the church devises a plan to take him down by having the sexually repressed nuns under his watch come up with a story about devil worship.

My Take:
The madness of Ken Russell is at full force in this movie about church corruption during the Middle Ages.
The real horror in this movie is how people turn on each other to save themselves and often in the name of God. There's torture, rape, deceit, and depravity imposed on the inflicted.

Rating: In the middle (but an extremely fascinating watch)
