tedious drivel
6 June 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is a "documentary" obviously bought and paid for by Anton LaVey and his Church of Satan. It is a very boring 90 minutes, that starts off fast, ends with a bang, but most of it drags.

Trying to humanize or at least summarize Antons past and give viewers a sense of Antons history, this film instead acts like an audition video for his organ playing. Long drawn out segments are shown of him playing his organ (he's not bad) inter cut with images of the circus and vaudeville.

We see him with his animals, we hear from his daughter, we hear from the man on the street about what is Satanism, but we don't get, is entertained for 90 minutes.

The only interesting moments are when he actually talks about his and his churches philosophy. Unless you are a LaVey completest, a Satanist or just oddly curious (like me) this is pretty much a waste of time.
