Overview

Leave your preconceptions about devil worshiping behind. Penny Lane's insightful, amusing documentary probes deep into the contemporary satanic movement, which is much more about progressive political and social outreach than cauldrons or human sacrifice. Charting the rise of the Satanic Temple in the USA, Hail Satan? explores the real impetus that fuels its founders – advocating for religious freedom through ever escalating pranks and social media savvy – as well as the extreme hostility from communities and governments who see no humour in their A+ grade trolling.

"A must-see."
— The New York Times
"Fantastic ... phenomenal"
— Variety
"A fascinating documentary about ragtag political activists making fundamentally serious mockery at a high level of media savvy."
— Wall Street Journal

Why You Should See This Film

When was the last time you saw a religious documentary that focuses on legal issues that was simultaneously a total hoot? This is a smart take on a controversial movement that is growing rapidly in numbers, providing a space for progressive outsiders who aren't welcome or don't want to join other conventional groups. There's even a sub-plot about a rogue satanist who's broken away from the Temple – it's got it all.
