Jess Franco's The Demons...
7 October 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I quite enjoyed watching The Demons directed By Jess Franco It was rejected in 1972 but later passed uncut in 2008. it is about a witch who is burned at the stake by the inquisition, but before the flames begin to burn her. she manages to curse the Principal witchfinder. The film contains everything from torture, lesbian sex to demonic possession, and also features lesbian nuns around in the film so it is quite a strong film to watch for viewers to see. I think that Jess Franco has directed a lot of good and bad movies. but there does seem many that are enjoyable to watch. I feel that all fans of Jess Franco fans should watch this movie.
