The Devil’s Rain

I know I’ve been on a Satanism kick this month, but can we take a second to talk about this disasterpiece, The Devil’s Rain? I kept seeing it pop up on Church of Satan forums and somewhere on their own website. It is cherished by some as a cult classic, I guess.

It is crazy to think of Ernest Borgnine as a baddy. William Shatner’s presence solidifies this as a B-Movie for sure, sorry Captain. I had such a hard time following this movie. The plot was disjointed, slowly paced and poorly dramatized. The ritual scenes were so…edge-lordy (and this is coming from me, the Lord of Edge Lords!). I could see Anton LaVey’s influence (he was a technical consultant on this film) from the use of Enochian and the ritual scene text taken verbatim from The Satanic Rituals. I tried my damnedest to keep pace with the plot but I kept falling asleep. Despite its shortcomings, there came a scene with a voice so familiar to me that I instantly woke up: Anton LaVey had a kind of cool cameo appearance in the film as the High Priest: 

Even though this movie has some accomplished actors and real historic figures, I just can’t get behind it. The only way to redeem this flick is to give it over to Mystery Science Theater 3000!

There. Now THAT’s appealing!

Book Review – The Satanic Scriptures

The gallant, haughty style of writing that made Dr. Anton LaVey infamous is very much present in his disciple and successor Magus Peter H. Gilmore. The Church of Satan’s penchant for showmanship and dramatics (part of what made the Church and LaVey so well known) makes itself visible in this collection of assorted writings that have brought the Church into the 21st century. When you get past all the pompous vocabulary, you reach the heart of the message of the Church of Satan: Do It Yourself, Asshole. A good read that will enlighten you on many of the misconceptions and misgivings many have about Satanism.

Ghost’s Prequelle is released

“And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.” Revelation 6:1

My favorites:


There is a scourge in the guise of sanctity
A perpetrator with a quill
Although it’s…
Often steeped in well spun mystery
The accuser sends a bill

I am all eyes
I am all ears
I am the wall
And I’m watching you fall

The Luddites shun the diabolical
A fecal trail across the land
Although it…
Stinks, feels and looks identical
A pack of fools can take the stand
