The prolific and manic Jess Franco has directed well over 200 films, some of which are classics of exploitation cinema. The Demons, Franco's shameless cash in on Ken Russell's The Devils, is a true Franco classic, 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 Franco's camera gleefully captures every perverse moment and gratuitous exposure of female flesh!
This is a true sleaze epic of Babylonian proportions!
Actors: Anne Libert, Britt Nichols, Doris Thomas, Karin Field, Cihangir Gaffari, Luis Barboo & Howard Vernon
Director: Jess Franco
Aspect Ratio: Widescreen 2.35:1
Run Time: 1 hour and 43 minutes (approx)
