PhilaMOCA celebrates Walpurgisnacht 2019 with a screening of the new restoration of the cult classic documentary SATANIS, THE DEVIL’S MASS presented by AGFA and Something Weird Video! Preceded by a multimedia lecture on the history of Satanists in cinema courtesy of writer Samm Deighan.
“If you’re going to be a sinner, be the best sinner on the block.” – Anton Szandor LaVey
SATANIS: THE DEVIL’S MASS is the unseen and unbelievable exposé on Anton LaVey, photogenic founder of the Church of Satan. Feeling like a bedtime story as told by Kenneth Anger and Russ Meyer, this is a wild glimpse into the witches, black masses and sex lives that built San Francisco’s most infamous cult.
From LaVey’s daughter (“I think they’re nuts!”) to a nude woman who performs a satanic rite with a Boa constrictor, you’ll meet numerous proto-goths, midnight maniacs and daytime Draculas – and even a pet tiger named Togare. In the words of LaVey, “There is a beast in man that should be exercised, not exorcised!”
