The Satanic Temple made waves in 2018 for threatening to sue the producers of Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina over the Baphomet statue in the lobby of The Academy of Unseen Arts (which they claimed violated a copyrighted design). Now, the organization often confused with the Church of Satan is the subject of an entire documentary. Look for Hail Satan? in select theaters beginning this Friday, April 19th.
Today, Dread Central is pleased to exclusively unveil an alternative poster for Hail Satan? Give it a look-see below, followed by the film’s synopsis and trailer.
Chronicling the extraordinary rise of one of the most colorful and controversial religious movements in American history, Hail Satan? is an inspiring and entertaining new feature documentary from acclaimed director Penny Lane (Nuts!, Our Nixon). When media-savvy members of the Satanic Temple organize a series of public actions designed to advocate for religious freedom and challenge corrupt authority, they prove that with little more than a clever idea, a mischievous sense of humor, and a few rebellious friends, you can speak truth to power in some truly profound ways. As charming and funny as it is thought-provoking, Hail Satan? offers a timely look at a group of often misunderstood outsiders whose unwavering commitment to social and political justice has empowered thousands of people around the world.
