4.0 out of 5 stars Not for your average, 31 Mar 2008

Mr. D. L. Barker "Satanist" (Derby, UK) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Satanis: The Devil'ís Mass / Sinthia: The Devilís Doll [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] [1970] (DVD)
Satanis is simply a documentary about Doctor Anton Szander LaVey, founder of the Church of Satan. It uncovers his Philosophy a little more to those who don't want to read any of the literature. It talks about his lifestyle back in the sixties. There is also a filmed Benediction ritual.

Unless you like Theology/the Occult, or you're researching Satanism/LaVey or you're a Satanist, then there is little point in purchasing this item.

I found it interesting, and amusing in places, though i would not call this a valid research piece for Satanism itself, as it reflect on Anton LaVey as a person and his friends, not Satanism or how it is supposed to be experienced.

If you are researching Satanism, i suggest you watch this after reading the Satanic Bible. The Satanic Bible covers every core fundamental of the religion, and will make watching this documentary more useful to you for whatever reason you're interested in LaVey.

I've rated it 4 because it was interesting and useful to me, but a little outdated.

5.0 out of 5 stars His Satanic Majesty Requests..., 5 Mar 2012

This review is from: Satanis: The Devil'ís Mass / Sinthia: The Devilís Doll [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] [1970] (DVD)
This notorious film was the first documentary made on Anton LaVey and the Church of Satan, and remains a vital document to all those who may be interested in the real Philosophy and Ritual basis of LaVey's group: as opposed to Christian-sourced horror-fantasies surrounding the sensationalist-media version of "Devil Worship". Everybody gets a look-in here in this production: Anton LaVey himself, his beautiful blonde wife Dianne, the family pet, "Togare", (a fully grown Lion), some of LaVey's neighbours, plus other members of the Satanic Church. Sections from a number of Satanic Rituals are covered in this documentary, including an interview with the female, nude Altar: centrepiece of the LaVey Ritual procedure. The documentary encapsulates a straightforward, explanatory insight into The Church of Satan and the man who founded it. No human/animal sacrifices; no blood-drinking; no adherence to the arbitrary "White" & "Black" Magic, "Good" and "Evil" schema of Christianity and the pseudo-Christian, popular Occult mainstream.

"Satanis" is joined on this disc by an extremely odd,totally avant-garde cinematic schlock-horror offering called "Sinthia", but this itself is upstaged completely by the DVD's (unintentionally) hilarious extras: soft-core porn packaged as a forbidden ritual; a strip show from the 1950's; a brilliant, nostalgic gallery of schlock. The best of the extras, however, is the ludicrous mini-documentary featuring an alleged "Witchcraft Initiation Rite" taking place in a large, isolated manse in the middle of the English countryside, and narrated by stereotypical English "cad" (and famous Hollywood Suicide) George Sanders.

I have chosen to give five out of five for this product. I am a fan of Anton Lavey and the Satanis DVD I purchased will be a part of my collection of my Satanic stuff. Great Show!
