Strange Club Movie for Monday: THE DEVILS (Ken Russell, 1971)
March 16, 2017 8:18 PM - Subscribe

This movie looks absolutely insane, blasphemous, reprehensible, and devoid of all merit. In other words, it's a perfect fit for Strange Club. It's also been super unavailable and impossible to track down in uncut form, UNTIL NOW: it appeared on the streaming service Shudder yesterday in a 109-minute unrated cut - "the most complete version of the film in existence." Lots of people are justifiably freaking out. Let's watch it.

A.V. Club:
Ken Russell’s widely banned The Devils makes a surprise appearance on Shudder

In this banned masterpiece, the evil is real but the witches are not

You can sign up for a free 7-day trial to Shudder. Or joining costs $4.99 a month and you can cancel at any time. I've heard good things about the service from bona fide film nerds, but this particular movie is what's finally getting me to do the trial.

Happy viewing - the Fanfare discussion thread opens on Monday, March 20.

I am a member of Shudder, and I thoroughly enjoy it. Looking forward to discussing this with you all. I'm sick as a dog so this will add to the trippiness.
