From America’s satanic panic to the battle of the Baphomet monument, Hail Satan? is an eye-opening comedic romp exploring the good – and sometimes not so good – work of The Satanic Temple.

You would think an organisation named The Satanic Temple would be serious stuff, but these agitators are nothing like the devil worshippers portrayed in the media. Demanding true democracy, The Satanic Temple serves as a community for those willing to fight for the rights of every citizen in America, even if their approach seems a tad left-field.

Those familiar with Penny Lane’s Nuts! (NZIFF16) will know her penchant for stories that are stranger than fiction, and Hail Satan? is no exception. Lane’s dive into the inner workings of The Satanic Temple introduces us to co-founder Lucien Greaves, who is embroiled in a lawsuit to allow the Temple to place a 2.6-metre-tall sculpture of Baphomet at the Oklahoma State Capitol to complement the existing Ten Commandments monument. The crowdfunded creation is only part of the story... and it’s not even the strangest part.

Featuring interviews with current Temple members, and beautifully illustrated sequences, Hail Satan? explores the deep irony of America’s religious zealots, while providing viewers with hope that The Satanic Temple will continue its good fight. — Kailey Carruthers
