Trivia

Footage from a ceremony conducted by Anton LaVey was used in the intro of the film, although Laveyan satanism has nothing to do with the supernatural, or even religion. See more »

Goofs

When the group leaves Pasadena intending to return home to Boulder, Colorado, they pull over so Elise can throw up and find themselves in South Los Angeles, as Chloe tells the 911 operator. Yet the drive from Pasadena (just north of L.A.) to Boulder would take them due East, nowhere near South L.A. See more »

Satanic: Potentially great horror ruined by its ending
10 January 2019 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

I was really enjoying Satanic, but it falls under the category for me as another film slain by its own ending.

It tells the story of two young couples on a macabre road trip to see sites of murders and general "Satanic" behavior. Along the way they come across a young runaway who changes everything for them.

Starring Justin Chon and Sarah Hyland it looks the part, is very well written and I was fairly gripped to see quite where this was going to go.

Sadly most of the movie is character development and fluff, when the story really kicks in it's a bit of a blink and you'll miss it situation so suffice to say it has chronic pacing issues.

And then the finale! I do hate it when an ending can kill an up to that point enjoyable film, but here once again we have it. It feels rushed, it feels poorly thought out and as if the creators simply ran out of ideas and tacked some random nonsense on instead.

I should be singing the movies praises right now, the majority of the film is great and in the right hands it could have been something special. Instead this poorly thought out little horror is mediocre and a marker for what should have been.

The Good:

Looks great

Solid cast

Some great ideas

The Bad:

Poorly paced

Falls apart at the end.
