Thank you for your continued support of independent films and the theaters that are dedicated to presenting them on the big screen.


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. An inspiring and entertaining new feature documentary from acclaimed director Penny Lane (Nuts!, Our Nixon).

“CRITIC’S PICK. Wry and illuminating. Could make professional lampooners like Armando Iannucci and Christopher Guest jealous.” – Ben Kenigsberg, New York Times

“UNDENIABLY ENTICING AND OFTEN SURPRISING. Penny Lane energetically goes about shattering our preconceived notions at every intriguing turn.” Michael Rechstaffen, Los Angeles Times

“Possessed not by evil but by a clear eye, a cool head and a sense of humor. As dark spells go, Lane’s is complex, one that will lead viewers down a surprisingly benevolent path.” Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York

“If Lane was just documenting the stunts of a group of shock-hungry pranksters, Hail Satan? would not have the weight that it does. Lane observes with both wryness and palpable admiration. Lane’s film asks us: Is this not only what democracy looks like, but what religion looks like?” Vulture/New York Magazine, Emily Yoshida
