Hail Satan? Rated 15

Hail Satan?

Dir. Penny Lane. USA, 2019. 1h 35m. Starring Jex Blackmore, Chalice Blythe, Nicholas Crowe, Sal De Ciccio, Stu De Haan, Cecil B. DeMille.

With American politics becoming more influenced by evangelical Christian beliefs, members of the Satanic Temple organise a series of public actions designed to advocate for religious freedom and challenge corrupt authority. A mischievous documentary offers a timely look at a group of misunderstood outsiders who are more committed to upholding the separation of church and state than raising hell.

‘A devilishly funny documentary that blends improbable imagery, self-awareness and religious provocation with a genuine sense of political purpose.’ ★★★★ Ben Travis, Empire Magazine

‘Though she takes her subjects seriously, Lane allows herself to be led by her sense of humour.’ ★★★★ Simran Hans, The Guardian
