Trivia

When the film was originally released, theatergoers were given a packet of "Satan's Soul" seeds when they purchased their tickets. Each paper envelope (illustrated with the movie's logo) contained two seeds, which were, according to the instructions, supposed to provide protection "from the Black Magic of The Brotherhood of Satan". It is not known for certain if anything (hellish or otherwise) ever sprouted from the seeds. See more »

There is a credit for "Nepotists". See more »

Neglected and Needs Rediscovery
10 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An ambiguous and confusing beginning leads to a very creepy, effectual, and disturbing Horror Movie that despite its very low budget manages to maintain an aura of surrealism and tension. The most disturbing element is probably the Children in Peril aspect as these Devil Worshipers use the Souls of the Innocent to reincarnate.

After the confounding first few scenes that in retrospect make more sense as things get going, it is one menacing and maniacal happening after another. There is a Post-Sixties Drug hangover that lingers here and it is quite unsettling.

The ending is shocking as is some of the hallucinatory, dream-like imagery and the indoor ritual Scenes have a setting of plastic-ism and play as a Children's demented Clubhouse. This is an underrated, undiscovered, and ultimately quite the quirk that helped issue in the Screen's Satanic Seventies.
