The term “Satanic Panic” refers to a wave of court cases in the 1980s and 1990s fueled by fears of cults and occult practitioners. They almost exclusively ended with some innocent person’s life being destroyed over obvious fabrications. The movie Satanic Panic, however, is something else entirely: It’s a horror comedy about a lonely pizza delivery girl whose final stop of the night leads to an unimaginable nightmare!

Today, Dread Central is thrilled to reveal the exclusive image from Satanic Panic below. It features Arden Myrin as Gypsy. Nothing strange here, right? Just your average group of high society Satanists gathered around the altar!
Times are tough for Sam. Already a cancer survivor at twenty-two, she eeks out a meager existence delivering pizza for minimum wage—and minimum tips—while dealing with an exploitative boss and obnoxious coworkers. When the final delivery of the night promises to take her to a wealthy neighborhood with the chance of a healthy tip, she takes the opportunity to make up for an unprofitable shift. What begins as a quest for cash ends up as a quest for survival, though, when it turns out her customers aren’t who she’s used to delivering to. Instead, they’re a Satanic cult of a very different color: high-society elites for whom worshipping the Dark Lord coexists with country clubs and casseroles.
Satanic Panic is directed by Chelsea Stardust from an original screenplay penned by Grady Hendrix from a story co-imagined with Ted Geoghegan; in addition to Myrin, the film stars Rebecca Romijn, Jerry O’Connell, and Jordan Ladd. Satanic Panic is produced by Dallas Sonnier and Amanda Presmyk of Fangoria.
We don’t have a trailer, key art, or a release date for Satanic Panic at this time, but we’ll keep you posted so stay tuned and check back often!
