HIVE

Ken Russell helms this graphic 1971 adaptation of a documented witchcraft case, which took place in France in 1634. Outspoken priest Urbain Grandier (Oliver Reed) finds himself accused of seducing a group of hysterical nuns while in demon form by Mother Superior Sister Jeanne (Vanessa Redgrave), who is obsessed with Grandier & driven into a fit of envy when he marries another woman. With the involvement of charismatic exorcist Father Barre (Michael Gothard), the affair turns into a sordid mass exorcism of the tainted convent. With much controversy surrounding its subject matter of religion combined with violence & sex, many cuts were made to the film in order for it to attain certification.

PLAY

In seventeenth-century France, a promiscuous & divisive local priest, Urbain Grandier (Oliver Reed), uses his powers to protect the city of Loudon 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 & brilliant direction by Ken Russell, magnificent performances by Oliver Reed & Vanessa Redgrave, exquisite Derek Jarman sets & sublimely dissonant score by Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, The Devils stands as a profound & sincere commentary on religious hysteria, political persecution & the corrupt marriage of church & state.
