Product Description

Destined to be a cult favourite, Satan hates you blends toe-curling horror with religious fervour to create an entirely original trip through the dark soul of mankind! Homicidal maniac Marc (Don Wood) is constantly driven by demons buried deep within his soul while his estranged sister Wendy (Christine Spencer) is Marc's polar opposite and lives life fast and hard without a second's thought to the consequences. Their separate paths will eventually cross, but will it be on the road to salvation or the highway to hell? Already touted as a truly subversive work of art (Shock Cinema), Satan hates you is one spiritual conversion you ll never forget.

5.0 out of 5 stars Satan Hates You but I like It 13 Oct 2011
By CwmReg
Format:DVD
This is a clever bit of film making by the writer-director James Felix McKenney. Despite a limited budget, he has come up with an entertaining and interesting film which matched his original vision. This is one of the advantages of working in the independent film sector rather than with the major studios as he was free of interference which could have forced modifications to the script, plot, characters etc. A mixture of religion and horror seems to be an odd concoction but it works on this occasion. The homage to the old style religious movies is maintained throughout by the use of TV sequences in the background and the presence of a preacher played by Angus Scrimm. Constantly lurking in the background are a couple of demonic characters who add the humourous commentary and try to influence characters to follow a sinful route. The horror sequences are limited but effectively presented. But even the horror parts are balanced by the introduction of comedy into the scenes particularly one which involves the disposal of bodies. The director must be complimented on the way in which he has balanced these elements of religion, horror and comedy. There are numerous characters and groups but they all have well defined roles and neatly ingegrated into the plot. Amongst all the messages projected is one which indicates that even when the path to seeking forgiveness and redemption is being followed there is always the danger that consequences of evil acts may not be avoided.

I was lucky enough to catch a screening of this film at the Egyptian in Hollywood last summer and I loved it. The whole film is like a Jack Chick tract brought to life! All of the hot button topics that drive evangelicals crazy are addressed (sexual promiscuity, heavy metal, drug abuse, abortion, witchcraft, Dungeons & Dragons, etc.) as the film's main characters stumble through a "Hell House" version of our reality. `Satan Hates You' is complicated, challenging and potentially controversial but also totally entertaining.

It would've been easy for the filmmakers to wink at the audience or to add an extra dollop of easy camp to the proceedings but Director McKenny chose to go for a more ambiguous tone and I think that's why I ended up liking the film so much - It always stays true to its source inspirations (Christian scare films). It always feels authentic.

With a cast that includes such cult favorites as Angus Scrimm, Michael Berryman, Debbie Rochon, Reggie Bannister, Alan Rowe Kelly and Bradford Scobie, the film could have been an exercise in self-congratulatory backpatting for the hipster crowd but `Satan Hates You' achieves something greater. In a lot of ways, the film, while being a condemnation of religious intolerance and ignorance, is also a provocative examination of faith and morality.

In this day and age when seemingly everything has been done and every story told, I love being provoked in some new way. I mean, isn't that what horror films are supposed to do? `Satan Hates You' is a different breed of transgressive. It offends those who want to be coddled at the cinema; it offends those who want to be constantly reassured that they're "in on the joke".

The film doesn't provide any easy answers. Smart, funny and genuinely scary - `Satan Hates You' is that rare horror satire that trusts its audience to come to its own conclusions.

1.0 out of 5 stars Buy it if you're into self-loathing 24 Aug 2011
Format:DVD
Caught this movie at a horror film fest in San Francisco. Have no idea why TLA Releasing would pick up this movie as the message is being gay makes you a homicidal manic and/or a sexual deviant with no societal redeeming values and your going to hell. A turd sprinkled with shiny production values makes it a movie anyone from the religious right would love. Skip it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Satan also hates boredom and repetition 25 Aug 2012
By Robert Cossaboon - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Which is a lot of what you're going to get in this movie about singularly stupid people doing really stupid things...repeatedly. They just never seem to learn. Yes, there is a Satan, of sorts. Mostly you see two cartoonish minions throughout the movie who can supposedly influence people to make minor choices that lead to significant results down the road. Our protagonists are a girl who horn dogs just about every guy for blocks around and does just about every drug that uses "drug" as a descriptive adjective. The other one is a handsome guy who gets really violent when he is either in one of two situations: he's hit on by gays, or women who accuse him of not being normal. Add to this cacophony of nonsense Reggie Bannister and Angus Scrimm, in this solely because of their names and their associations with the Phantasm franchise, and Michael Berryman a near source of amusement as he plays against his traditional type, and you've still got....nonsense.

1.0 out of 5 stars Unwatchable, boring and incomprehensible amateur film 5 Aug 2013
By B. Mandell - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
OK, forget the bad acting, bad special effects, bad sets -- what this really suffers from is a bad, meandering script. The person who praised it must have shot it, because anyone else would mention that this looks and plays like home produced crap. Forget any actors attached to this that you might want to see, they are boring, meaningless cameos. The "devils" are designated as such by wearing cheap plastic strap-on horns. Really. Tedious snoozer, period.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deliriously One-of-a-kind! 12 May 2012
By Carl Kelsch - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
"Satan Hates You" is ripe for discovery by horror fans who weren't lucky enough to catch it at a film festival. It doesn't fit into any sort of mold and it's jam-packed with crazy depravities. So it's a perfect film to watch with a group of gore-loving friends. It will make you squirm, jump, laugh, shout at the tv, gag, and even more importantly, it gives you a lot to talk about afterwards. Not just the awesome cameos. The meaning of the film's ending is definitely worthy of debate.

Many horror movies tackle the subject of evil and the devil, but few dare to really look at the flipside - salvation. What does it mean to be saved? The story follows two troubled souls (self-destructive party girl Wendy and murderous closet-case Marc) who really need to be rescued from their own impulses. It doesn't help that two demons are gleefully putting every temptation imaginable in front of them. Many of us know a girl like Wendy - she's the kind of girl who gets around and seems to be always ready to party, but is crying herself to sleep feeling utterly alone. Her life seems to be a string of bad luck. It's kind of heart-breaking what she endures. And who is putting her through this gruesome test? God? The Devil? Could salvation really be the quick fix we're promised? Does God figure into these characters' problems at all?

On the surface, "Satan Hates You" plays like a love-spawn of John Waters and Rob Zombie. Underneath the colorful chaos, though, there are some cool philosophical questions about good and evil that are worth considering. This is more than your average scary flick. I'd love to hear what other people are taking away from the unusual ending.
