Pretty Entertaining. People have too high of expectations or shouldn't review movies
First of all I don't know why so many people are like "I thought this was a horror movie". From the trailer or description alone it did not scream horror movie. It turned out to be pretty much exactly what I expected it to be. A movie about a band signing a deal with the Devil and the consequences and reality of making such a decision. Many people actually believe that this type of thing exists. But it really doesn't matter if you believe it or not because although the movie is seen as fictitious, it opens up a lot of doors when it comes to the journey of becoming the next big sensation in Hollywood. The trials and tribulations, the impact your actions and decisions make on not only your career but your whole future. Including your family, friends, and even your own soul. To the point where you can't even distinguish what is real and what isn't real.
Now I'm not even a huge fan of metal and satan and all that jazz but the music in this movie was pretty damn good. Some people are upset it wasn't hardcore metal and considering the name American Satan you would think that it would be. But I feel like this will resonate with a lot more people than just targeting a specific group of listeners. I mean even if you like heavy metal you can listen to this and enjoy it. But if you don't like heavy metal it would ruin the whole movie.
With all that being said I felt like the actors did a really good job and I was actually stoked to see Drake Bell in this movie because I wasn't expecting it. Sure you can argue maybe the Devil wasn't portrayed in the best way but I still feel like his cryptic and weird behavior made for an interesting and layered character. Constantly kept me on my feet wondering when he was going to return again and what he had to say next. I also wanted to learn a lot about his history which is always good for a film because it leaves you wanting more.
Oh yeah and screw the bass player. Like seriously. What a lowlife piece of trash.
Some are arguing that this film portrays sex and drugs in a good light but that's only true if you watch the beginning of the film. Which I wouldn't be surprised because a lot of people probably stopped watching it and tried to make a review based on something they didn't even finish. Just like life of course in the beginning it's all fun and games but eventually your sins and addictions will destroy you. It all starts when they make the deal and then quickly things start to go downhill real fast. I don't really see how you can say this movie is complete trash. It's nothing amazing but it's a decent watch and has a few highlights. Which is why I am rating it a 6/10. It's above an average meh film for sure.
