‘The Devil’s Own’ (a.k.a. ‘The Witch’)

“A rector without a church…and a village without hope”

The Witches, released in the United States as The Devil’s Own, is a 1966 British horror film directed by Cyril Frankel and starring Joan Fontaine, Alec McCowen, Kay Walsh, Ann Bell, Ingrid Boulting (billed as Ingrid Brett) and Gwen Ffrangcon Davies. Made by Hammer Films, it was adapted by Nigel Kneale from the 1960 novel The Devil’s Own by Norah Lofts, published under the pseudonym Peter Curtis

A film whose scenes of ritual activity features a fair bit of geometry…. including a nice big red daisy wheel…..
