Storyline

Inspired by true accounts and the craze that took place in the late 1970's and early 80's, follows in the footsteps of classic horror films from that generation. In 1980, ten year old twins Toby and Cindy Richards were abducted by a group of demented satanic cult members. Cindy managed to escape, but Toby was never found. Twenty-five years later, a group of six friends take a canoe trip to re-kindle their friendship, only to find themselves in trouble with crazy, small town locals and the same satanic cult that took Toby years ago. Can the friends make it out of the town of Thornwood alive and in one piece, or will the become victims of sacrifice. Written by M Selz

Satanic Scares!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
30 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Inspired by True Events, Satanic Panic is not just a cool title for the film but based off a phenomena that mostly got its push from the 1980's. If you remember the times, which I do quite frankly..... these were days when we would see a lot Satanic controversy on talk shows, in the news, in papers and even the focus of entire articles dedicated in top name magazines. This is a docu-style low budget horror film, and that is what makes this film really eerie, it does feel like you are watching some home movie lost snuff footage in some of the beginning scenes, which makes it all work and come together nicely. Most low budget films at this level I usually shut off in the first five minutes. NOT SATANIC PANIC. I was glued to the screen for the entire 85 minute running time.

This film directed by Marc Selz who is not a new comer to low budget horror films. is unique in that it combines film styles. horror is approached by factual references and in turn turned into on screen fiction. The issue actually becomes a leverage for the horror movie itself and a chance to heat up the footage with some FX work, acting talent and suggested situations. I think this is top notch horror showcased with factual realities. The horror lasts long after the film is complete. The idea that fiction based on reality can be a scary thing is never more evident. Satanic also pays homage to classic horror films from the past. If you like low budget horror, SATANIC PANIC is a film not to miss!
