Product Description

The prolific and manic Jess Franco has directed well over 200 films. Some are dire, the majority functional and a few are absolute classics of exploitation cinema. The Demons, Francos shameless cash in on Ken Russells the Devils, is a true Franco masterpiece, featuring everything from torture, lesbian sex and demonic possession. The film centres on a witch who is burned at the stake by the inquisition but who, before the flames consume her, manages to curse the principal witchfinder and his minions with dire results. What follows is a catalogue of depravity and sexual violence on a truly orgiastic scale while Francos camera gleefully captures every perverse moment and gratuitous exposure of female flesh!

This is a true sleaze epic of Babylonian proportions Buy It!

Review

Theres no shortage of gratuitousnudity and fondling, seduction and corruption, or witchcraft and torture in the Demons. Jess Franco delivers everything nunsploitation fans have come to expect --Nunsploitation.net

A tale of medieval lesbian nuns from the great Jesus Franco HOT! --imdb.com

Copious amounts of sadism and sleazy sex --Altmovies.com

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Franco's Best 24 May 2014
Format:DVD
Absoklutely love this movie . I thought the use of prog rock/psychedlic/jazz score for something set in medieval times was bold, unusual and worked suprisingly well ! Another excellent thing is that this is uncut too !!

Anyone know where I can obtain the soundtrack or who it is by - been searching for it for about 10 years but to no avail .

Help would be appreciated .

Thanks

2.0 out of 5 stars One for Franco fans only 11 Feb 2009
By TimmyC
Format:DVD
The uk dvd of the Demons by Redemption is 103 minute directors cut restored by Franco in 2003 (passed with no cuts by the bbfc) and is longer than the previous uk vhs release( which ran for less than 80 minutes). It is a decent effort not as good as some of Francos earlier work but definitely better than the stuff he directed in the early 80's for Eurocine. The DVD has a nice looking 2.35:1 anamorphic transfer with english audio, some scenes are in french without english subtitles!!!!!!!!. The extras are Trailer (which contains footage from the alternate versions not included here), gallery, blood & dishonour teaser. If you really love this film your better off trying to find the german X - Rated Kult Video release which has three different cuts of the movie and tons of extras.

1.0 out of 5 stars Another DVD disaster from Redemption 6 Dec 2010
Format:DVD
If you're a Jess Franco fan, you'll know well enough about this film already. Essentially, it's his spin on the witch-hunting/inquisition genre ala "Witchfinder General" and "Mark of the Devil". For a long time it was also one of the harder films to come by, at least in anything approaching a "complete" form, out of the vast output of Mr. Franco. It was easy was get excited when Redemption/Salvation announced that they were releasing the most complete version available, and that it sailed through the BBFC uncut, but once you take delivery of the DVD your mind might change considerably...

Where to start? Although 16:9 anamorphic widescreen, in the film's original scope ratio, the image is pretty poor by any standard. The composite version on show appears to have been constructed from a number of different sources, all of them seemingly tape masters (instantly identifiable by the interlaced transfer; which will produce combing and ghosting in the image on some HDTVs). Image quality is generally mediocre to acceptable, but when the shifts occur between source elements, even Blind Freddy would immediately notice. It's a fairly ugly composite, comparable with some of the home-made "fan-edits" of cult films that circulate on bootleg networks.

And then there's the audio: Oh dear! As has been mentioned in another review, some scenes have been assembled together from a French language variant. What wasn't mentioned, though, is that whole passages of dialogue will pass in unsubtitled French (for non-French speaking viewers) and, with alarming frequency, dialogue will switch between English and French, often mid-sentence! The lack of subtitles is unforgiveable as it leaves a significant portion of the film unintelligible. All up, an incredibly poor presentation.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pure unadulterated dross 19 Nov 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this DVD recently expecting something a lot better than this load of dross. The copy I got was cut to pieces by the censors and that of course ruined it even more. I love the idea of young girls being grabbed and put to the question about being a witch or not. But "ye gods!" the acting and story-line in this travesty of a film are appalling. I was trapped again by my silliness in judging a DVD by looking at the pic on the box. The graphical quality of the film was better than I thought it would be but the background music is utterly dreadful. I looked at the extra's when the film had finished and it was then when I saw the trailor for this movie that I could see all the cuts that had been made by the censor, I was so disappointed. I guess if I want a cheap thrill in future I will just dig out this DVD and just watch the trailor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Prophecy of doom 15 May 2007
Format:DVD
Edwin Brienen's Terrorama is an example of transgressive cinema at its very best. Provocative imagery and subversive political ideas are the main ingredients here, set in a world of television, terrorism and decadence.

This prophetical film scared the hell out of me, first seeing it two years ago in New York. What is most disturbing about this film is that Brienen seems to make a point with his radical nihilist perspective on humanity. Shot in 2000, the film deals with topics such as freedom, religion and society, one year before 9/11. On a personal level, one of the actors in this film (Theo van Gogh) got murdered by a Muslim fundamentalist, November 2004, on the streets of Amsterdam.

I'm glad to see this film finally gets a proper DVD release. Terrorama might not be technically perfect, by context it's for sure one of the most important films made in the last ten years.
