Welcome to another Satanic Sunday. A day of unholy celebration to frighten the soul. For this day I always like to take the time and pick six movies that bring the sin in and show the darker side of spiritual awakening. This week my films deal with the devil and the consortium of souls that will do anything to show their devotion.
1. Sinthia: The Devil’s Doll (1970)
When Cynthia Kyle becomes a woman she celebrates this change by murdering her parents, because her father’s love was only meant for her. Vivid dreams of Lucifer, orgies, and her parents plague her throughout a nightmarish journey. She then seeks the help of a psychologist in an effort to resolve her torment. Directed by Ray Dennis Steckler the film stars Shula Roan, Peter Balakoff, Bret Zeller, and Gary Kent.
(could not locate a decent trailer but did find this video of the films highlight moments set to music)
2. Incubus (1966)
Directed by Leslie Stevens “Incubus” has William Shatner fighting the forces of evil on an island that is plagued with demons and spirits. The film also stars Allison Ames, Eloise Hardt and Robert Fortier.
3. Satanico Pandemonium (1975)
“Satanico Pandemonium” is a Spanish film that sees a nun dealing with ravenous visions of lust and forbidden sexual acts in a folly to cross over to Satan. The film is directed by Gilberto Martinez Solares and stars Enrique Rocha, Cecilia Pezet, Delia Magana, and Clemencia Colin.
4. The Devil Rides Out( 1968)
Directed by Terence Fisher and starring Christopher Lee, Charles Gray, Nike Arrighi, and Leon Greene. The film is about the Duc de Richeleau and his friend Rex who discover their young charge Simon has fallen in with the powers of Darkness and is about to be baptized into the service of evil. The Duc is fortunately versed in such matters and finds himself locked in a duel with the deadly Mocata, disciple of the left-hand path.

“Doctor Faustus” tells the story of a man who sells his soul for the love of a woman and the price he must pay for his desires. The film stars Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor and was directed by Richard Burton with Nevill Coghill.
(note- instead of the trailer for this one I found a really cool fan made video that takes the best of this film’s intent and sets it to some great classical music)
Hope you all enjoy these movies, as bad as they may seem to most they are awesome to me. So on this holy unholy day enjoy some sinfully bad cinema!
