Yes, I've seen the movie. Rented the one dubbed in english from Hollywood video years ago. The english one with subtitles is narrated by William burroughs, the author of the book, The Naked Lunch. It's a very interesting film The scene where the convent of nuns claiming to be possed by the devil did actually happen. Aldous Huxley wrote a book entitled the Devil Of Loudon. It is a town in france and in the 17th century the nuns claimed to be possed. Ken Russel made a movie about it with Oliver Reed and either Linda Redgrave or her sister Vanessa Redgrave as the mother superior.Reed played the nuns chaplain who was accused of seducing and bewitching the nuns. You can goolge it.

I've only seen short clips; will have to add it to my Amazon Prime queue. Here in the U.S., it's also available through Amazon Prime for streaming, and for purchase on DVD. Youtube uploads tend to be hit and miss with regard to video and audio quality. It's also available for purchase from the Criterion Collection; their DVD contains the original version with the original music, it also contains the Burroughs narrated version. Netflix doesn't have it. If you google/bing for it, there are various other places where it can be obtained.

Both the OP's links are great reminders of humanity's barbaric nature. It is no wonder that so many believed in the paranormal at that time. Heck you could be next if you did not agree; you wanted to be with the majority for fear of torture or losing your life. The Dark Ages and Spanish Inquisition are not humanities finest hour.

Sorry; I never cared for Mel Brooks and that YouTube did not change my mind. It is hard to see humor in so much human suffering.

Ah, well, I think laughter is great thumb to the nose to those tragedies in life. Different strokes, as it were.

That I will agree with! I just thought that Mel Brooks had poor taste considering the misery. I know that if I was being tortured I would not be happy with somebody singing and dancing!
