100% psychotronic goodness!
10 June 2008 | by (Worcester, MA) – See all my reviews

"The Killing of Satan" is an admittedly crappy film. Its horribly paced, cheesy beyond belief, features the subtlety of a kick to the groin, and really serves no great social or emotional purpose when you think about it. The filmmakers pack in oodles of goofy religious imagery and subtext = this is obviously the work of a very religious nation. The special effects may have been state of the art in about, oh, 1912. I'm pretty sure Georges Melies experiments are more believable to modern eyes. The screenplay makes absolutely no sense and is all over the place.

You know what, who cares? This film is so packed with rich psychotronic goodness that its entirely worth watching and hypnotic. Its capable of killing more brain cells than any hallucinogenic drug available, probably because its an entirely hallucinogenic film. "The Killing of Satan" is one of the weirdest cinematic experiences I've had in a while. "Hell" simply looks like a Philippine barrio and field. The special effects are lousy and primitive to the point where they become inadvertently surreal.

I can only give "The Killing of Satan" a five out of ten and most film fans (and even horror fans) are advised to keep as far away from it as possible. However, fans of international weirdness (the type Mondo Macabro purveys in) really need to check this one out. Its one of the most delirious and insane films I've seen in a long while. (5/10)
