At last.  Mine popped through the door yesterday.  I'll try and have a look at it in the next couple of days.

There's also a Korean release - Aarron put me onto an eBay seller who had it in stock - same as the Spanish release albeit NTSC. I'm only going by the back of pack running time but when you consider that and the fact it's letterboxed widescreen it's a sure bet that it is the R-rated edit. The coverart, incidentally, is that which was circulated at the time of the rumoured US release (see page 1 of this thread).

When I got some money in my paypal I went to get it but alas they were gone, hopefully they will get some more in.

You know, I should be happy but with the BFI releasing it, now I'm feeling greedy and wanting a Blu-ray!

If it's the full version, wasn't it properly restored for it's screening before? If so, surely the materials are good enough.

I'll buy it gladly if it's DVD only though.

A little further investigation and it's the original Theatrical version, so not the more recent reconstruction. Also, seems the DVD only decision was out of the BFI's hands...

Specs...

Quote
The Devils (Special Edition)

In seventeenth-century France, a promiscuous and divisive local priest, Urbain Grandier (Oliver Reed), uses his powers to protect the city of Loudon from destruction at the hands of the establishment. Soon, he stands accused of the demonic possession of Sister Jeanne (Vanessa Redgrave), whose erotic obsession with him fuels the hysterical fervour that sweeps through the convent.

With its bold and brilliant direction by Ken Russell, magnificent performances by Oliver Reed and Vanessa Redgrave, exquisite Derek Jarman sets and sublimely dissonant score by Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, The Devils stands as a profound and sincere commentary on religious hysteria, political persecution and the corrupt marriage of church and state.

Finally available on DVD for the first time, The Devils is presented in the original UK ‘X’ certificate version with a host of new and exciting extra features.

Special features*
• DVD premiere presentation of the original UK ‘X’ certificate version
• Newly filmed introduction with director Ken Russell
• Audio commentary with Ken Russell, Mark Kermode, Mike Bradsell and Paul Joyce
• Hell on Earth (Paul Joyce, 2002, 48 mins): documentary exploring the film's production and the controversy surrounding its original release
• Director of the Devils (1971, 21 min): documentary featuring candid Ken Russell interviews and unique footage of Sir Peter Maxwell Davies recording his celebrated film score
• Original on-set footage with commentary by editor Mike Bradsell
• Amelia and the Angel (Ken Russell, 1958, 30 mins): Ken Russell's short film, a delightful mix of religious allegory and magical fantasy
• Original UK trailer
• Original US trailer
• Fully illustrated booklet featuring new essays and notes from Mark Kermode, Craig Lapper (BBFC), Sam Ashby and others

* Special features are subject to change

What did you expect? He's almost as obsessed with this as he is The Exorcist.

Great line up of extras - Hell on Earth is a cracking doc.

I know you hate him (and let's face it, there aren't many who aren't aware of your disliking for the bequiffed one) but he's probably the reason why this release is coming.
