This is the real deal
6 August 2002 | by t-h-fieldsSee all my reviews

Most of you have heard, read, or seen on TV all kinds of stories about Satanism. Now, the late Anton Lavey gives you the straight story on it. This is NOT a second-hand account; it is the real deal.

Lavey was a very private person, and biographical details of his life are pretty vague here. But his philosophy and the practices of the Church of Satan are summarized as well as can be done in a single movie. Whether you agree with his ideas or not, here they are.

One of the most endearing things about this movie is Lavey's dark sense of humor -- which he says is essential to him and his followers. He was a former circus musician, artist, writer, and police photographer, among other things. A natural showman and entertainer, he was adept at crowd psychology. He also loved children and animals.

The movie is full of Lavey's music (he was a good organist), artwork, and stock footage from old movies and newsreels which help illustrate his key points. It also has brief scenes of Satanic worship. However, he does not attempt to convert anyone. He states early on that if you are a true Satanist, then you were born that way. With the exception of some old photos, it has almost no violence, gore, or nudity.

Before passing judgment upon these people, see this movie (if you can find it), or read some of their literature. You may be surprised.
