Lucifer be not proud...
6 August 2004 | by See all my reviews

I'm really puzzled about one thing…HOW is it possible to take such an intriguing and exciting topic like Satanism and make such a BORING movie out of it??? Because that's exactly what happened with this `Satan's Slave'! Bad writer-director combination, I guess. Norman J. Warren already annoyed the hell out of me with `Inseminoid' (a.k.a. Horror Planet), while author David McGillivray previously was responsible for stinkers like `House of Whipcord' and `Schizo'. Although I have to admit his `Frightmare' was quite enjoyable! The premise of `Satan's Slave' contains more than enough potential but it completely lacks feeling and it's so damn sloooooooow! It's about a young, beautiful girl (Candy Glendanning from `Tower of Evil') who goes to stay at her uncle's mansion, along with her parents. Before they even arrive there properly, her parents are killed in the lamest car-accident ever. The girl stays to recover from a shock at her uncle's, only to discover he actually is the leader of a satanic cult, out to achieve the rebirth of Camilla – an ancient priestess (or something, I don't really cared). Candace Glendanning is a beauty to look at, as well as Barbara Kellerman who plays the mansion's secretary. Uncle Alexander is played by Michael Gough who's known best for his on-going role of the annoying butler Alfred Pennyworth in the Batman films. The last 20 minutes of Satan's Slave are fairly entertaining, with some gruesome horror effects (even though they're still very cheap) and enough nudity to let this film pass for a softcore sleaze gem. Too bad you already categorized this film as `awful' by then.
