I recently purchased the DVD "Satanis:The Devil's Mass" from a seller on eBay. (It also contains the movie "Sinthia: the Devil's Doll"). Filmed inside the Black House in 1969, it includes footage of several Rituals, clips of interviews with the Great Man, as well as other members of the CoS and even some interview footage with various neighbors.
I found it very informative for those of us who never met Doktor La Vey. I would (and do) highly recommend this DVD.
Well worth 10 times the $11.40 I paid for it.

Anyone somewhat confused about rituals etc, or really, ANYONE who has read The Satanic Bible should watch this film. It is simply empowering, and wonderful. The music is excellent as well.

I agree I found a Copy at Borders and found it well worth the price the movie Sinthia was also interesting would have made a good Psychology Report if I had seen it in College

Absolutely a great movie, and very interesting to see a few different sides of Anton Lavey as well.

My damned DVD Player has regional code, so I can`t see it. I hope the authorized Church of Satan DVD release is going to be code-free.

Yeah, I watch this film a lot, I love footage from inside of the Black House from way back then.

If you haven't already done so, obtain a copy of "Speak of the Devil,' also. It will please you a lot I think!

There are ways of getting passed that. ;\)


Nonetheless, as for the documentary itself; I had seen it about a year ago on what I later found out to be a bootleg VHS, and the transfer was much poorer than the one that's been used on many of these DVDs. After seeing Speak of the Devil!, I became interested in some of the older footage showcased. I wouldn't particuarly recommend it to anyone without a good comprehension of Satanism -- I think some what was said (not by LaVey) could cause misunderstandings.

But still, an excellent look into the history of Satanism and the Church of Satan.

I felt Speak of the Devil as well as Satanis were informative in different ways. Speak of the Devil gave a more personal look at Dr. LaVey's life, where as Satanis is a better reference for rituals, though I personally could have done without the comments from the neighboors and so forth, though I do understand why they needed to be put in. I found myself laughing at some of the individuals, and cringing at others. In either case, both videos have their interesting portions indeed.

P.S.--the grocery store scene in Speak of the Devil was amusing. Togar is SO CUTE! \:\)

I just finished watching SATANIS. I understand the time period and the types that were attracted to the church at the time. I think the portrayal of LaVey's family was done well. They looked 'normal'. Some of the other people seemed a bit 'off'. I loved the misconceptions (and mispronuciations)of the black female neighbor. The movie wasn't a total hachet job, but it still is a little explotational.

After i had bought my copy of "Satanis", I was surfing through the CoS site, and saw that it is offered there also. If I had taken the time to browse through first, I would ahve got my copy from CoS instead of the non-Satanist source on eBay. tiki

Gotta love that movie. And those wacky neighbors! They thought the Doktor was weird!

And the lady in pink (with matching daughter zombie) who doesn't mind having Satanists next door but an S&M lady with a whip is "disturbing"! crossbones

A great double feature. The overall "old" feel of the video helped feed my fascination with old-timey stuff.

I do have to agree, This movie did open my mind as to the meanings of the CoS as well give me a more ranged opinion of the Shape of things I will also have to look into this other movie that has been mentioned "Speak of the Devil" that soundslike it would also be interesting (thank you all for the suggestion)

Yes I loved that film and alongside with "Speak of the devil", they make a good DVD package for anyone wanting to learn more about the history of the left hand path and the Church of Satan.

However I wouldn’t have bought it off ebay as I believe both “The Church of Satan Emporium” and “Purging Talon Media” have copies for sale, I prefer to buy my media from the source itself and not from outside sellers.

Also I highly recommend "Church of Satan Interview Achieve", which is a great DVD in itself but also great for learning and viewing the many media representations of the Church of Satan (and seeing the growth of Magus Gilmores beard).

Yes I found the part where the mormons talking about "We want our sisters or daughters to have sex before marriage. We would hope they would wait." statement, knowing that the so-called "respect" and "holy-right-to-sex" she would be GRANTED would also be granted to his 5 or 6 other wives and/or their daughters who would one day become his wife...

This movie was great. I think it shows the charm and intelligence of Dr. LaVey very well. I enjoyed the bit about the lion especially!
