‘A religion based on man’s carnal
needs’ is how ‘Satanist Minster’
Anton Szandor LaVey describes his Church of Satan in
the fascinating documentary, Satanis, The
Devil’s Mass, an up-close look at LaVey and the satanic
shenanigans filmed inside his infamous San Francisco ‘Black House’
back in 1969. From the nude
women decorating the altar to
the man dressed as a
bishop who gets his fanny whipped before climbing into a
coffin with a naked gal, we’re treated to
interviews with LaVey and his flock (‘We’re
maybe more normal than normal people!’) as
well as various startled neighbors (‘He has
completely sold himself to the devil!’),
all of which is sandwiched between scenes of Black
Mass featuring hilarious corny B-movie booga-booga and LaVey
wearing silly little devil horns. Regardless of your take on Anton
or the devil, Satanis, The Devil’ Mass is a
wonderfully oddball look at one of America’s darkest pop-culture curiosities.
Plus: After murdering her parents and setting
Cynthia Kyle becomes Sinthia, the Devil’ Doll
when Lucifer forces her to wander through a
semi-psychedelic world of dreams and hallucinations in
this ultra-bizarre mix of skin, daddy-lust, and art-film
exploitation from cult fave Ray Dennis Steckler, directing under the moniker
‘Sven Christian’. And remember, ‘If you’re going to
be a sinner, be the best
sinner on the block!’
