YMMV / The Devils

  • Adaptation Displacement: You probably have not read Aldous Huxley's The Devils of Loudun or the John Whiting play The Devils, both used as sources for the film.

    • Sister Jeanne states that most of the nuns came to the convent because they were too old and ugly to be marriageable, yet as Roger Ebert observes in the page quote, the nuns are to a woman young and voluptuous.
    • Sister Jeanne herself. Even with the hunchback, she's still Vanessa Redgrave.
  • Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: The message of corrupt religion and how it manipulates and destroys the weak to further its own ends? There's a pretty heavy anvil right there.
  • Squick: Sister Jeanne's sexual fantasies, the exorcism sequences, the Rape of Christ...
