A double feature from the depths of hell, newly preserved in 2K from AGFA + Something Weird!
SATANIS: THE DEVIL’S MASS is the unseen and unbelievable exposé on Anton LaVey, America’s favorite leader of the Church of Satan. Feeling like a bedtime story as told by Kenneth Anger and Russ Meyer, this is a wild glimpse into the witches, black masses, and sex lives that built San Francisco’s most infamous cult. From LaVey’s daughter (“I think they’re nuts!”) to a nude woman who performs a satanic rite with a Boa constrictor, you’ll meet numerous proto-goths, midnight maniacs, and daytime Draculas — and even a pet tiger named Togare! In the words of LaVey, “There is a beast in man that should be exercised, not exorcised!” Made by one-and-done filmmakers in the gutters of Tampa, SATAN’S CHILDREN is an Afterschool Special from depths of hell . . . literally. Bobby is a troubled teen with problems. After deflecting his father’s insults and his stepsister’s come-ons, Bobby unknowingly ends up at a gay bar. Before long, he’s sexually assaulted by four guys in the back seat of a car. With nowhere else to turn, Bobby joins a cult of Satanists to enact his murderous revenge. A truly deranged gut-punch, this is a gritty and baffling “experience” that could have only happened in Florida.
