Aldous Huxley – The Devils Of Louden

Posted by demonik on July 25, 2007

Penguin 1974 movie tie-in for Aldous Huxley’s magnificent case history of the doomed Urbain Grandeur and the manic army of female admirers … in habits. The general concensus seems to be that at first the Sisters were mocking possession, but as they became more unhinged they really did come to believe that devils had entered them. It’s a horrible, horrible story, which, if it were ever going to be filmed, required Ken Russell’s unflinching, taboo-busting approach to do it justice IMO.
