"Satanis: The Devil's Mass" is a North-American account about the Church of Satan. It was released in 1970, and is directed and produced by Ray Laurent.
It shows various clips of interviews of Church of Satan founder Anton LaVey's family members, neighbors, and Church of Satan members.
I screened this picture for the first time ever tonight and I thought it was boring. It is a cure for insomnia. I've seen a lot of scary movies and things in my personal life, so perhaps that's why the documentary had no affect on me. I suppose if you've never seen the kind of eccentric activities Mr. Anton LaVey and his followers do, you might find the photoplay entertaining.
The only good part of the film was when Anton LaVey talked about what he believes, but that's it.
I realize in it's day, this might have been a scary and shocking flick since Satanism was a taboo subject, but standards have changed greatly so anyone living today will most likely not be affected by it because it's very tame compared to other projects.
This motion picture is most likely not intended to be frightening, but to educate. However, I think most viewers who are not familiar with the topic mostly are going in for shocks and scares and it does not have that in my view. In any case, if you're needing to seriously study this subject, I guess it makes for a good movie and will teach you what you need to know.
