Director Ken Russell will appear at the Anthology Film Archives (32 Second Ave.) on Halloween at midnight for a special screening of his outrageous 1971 film The Devils. This brilliant shocker starring Vanessa Redgrave and Oliver Reed was based on the book by Aldous Huxley. This tale about an exorcism at a devil-possessed nunnery (actually an excuse for Cardinal Richelieu to take down Father Grandier (Oliver Reed) and his fortified town scandalized audiences at the time. Vanessa Redgrave's love-starved hunchback nun is burned into my brain. Don't miss your chance to see this deranged classic and the great director too!
