Alternate Versions

The film was released in two versions in the UK. The 18-rated release features a pre-cut print which removes around 8 minutes of explicit pornography and a troilistic group sex scene. The R18 release, which limits its availability to licensed sex shops only, contains the all hardcore material. See more »

What's left to say?
7 January 2005 | by InjunNoseSee all my reviews

I was surprised to find so many reviews for a hardcore porn film...but, given the high quality of "The Devil in Miss Jones", maybe this shouldn't have come as such a shock. "DiMJ" actually works as a legitimate film--it's almost like a long episode of Rod Serling's "Night Gallery" with sex. The acting is quite good (watch for director Gerard Damiano as a Beckettian tormentee in Hell at the end of the film) and the atmosphere is wonderful. Yes, folks, the movie is SUPPOSED to be disturbing! Damiano was trying to tell a story of which sex just happened to be a part, so Jenna Jameson fans beware: you'll actually have to slog your way through a storyline here. Not a blonde to be found in the entire film, either. High points: the suicide scene, the ending, the moody soundtrack, Harry Reems' scenes as the menacing "Teacher"...and Georgina Spelvin, Miss Justine Jones herself. She is, in a word, superlative.
