The Satanist (1968)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

A novelist has a nervous breakdown so his doctor recommends a vacation away from everything. He takes his wife to a house where they meet another woman who just happens to be a satanist and soon she has wicked plans for the husband and wife.

THE SATANIST comes from director Zoltan G. Spencer and is probably best remembered for being lost for several decades before a print turned up in 2014. If you're not familiar with Spencer's work then he basically made a handful of softcore titles, the type that would be released by Something Weird Video. This film here has a lot of press behind it when it was found but sadly the end result isn't all that good. Still, it's always great whenever any lost film turns up.

The greatest thing about this movie is the fact that it clocks in at just 61-minutes. That's actually a bit too long because there's not much going on here. Basically there are a bunch of softcore sex scenes that are never erotic and they really lack much of a bite. All of these scenes are pretty much drawn out and after a while we get some narration (the film was shot without sound) to try and explain any sort of plot.

The best thing about the picture are the beautiful women who were apparently picked for their parts because of their breast sizes. THE SATANIST isn't a good movie but if you're a fan of these type of low-budget sex pictures then you'll probably want to watch it but just don't go into it with high expectations.
