SATAN HATES YOU, writer/director James Felix McKenney’s bloody and subversive riff on ‘60s and ‘70s religious cinema, is screening in Brooklyn Saturday, September 25, as part of the 10th annual Coney Island Film Festival. Hit the jump for details!
With a packed cast of horror notables including Angus Scrimm, Debbie Rochon, Reggie Bannister, Michael Berryman and Larry Fessenden, “SATAN HATES YOU,” reads the offifial synopsis, “is a graphic, over-the-top horror movie inspired by classics of 1960s and ’70s Christian cinema. In the film, we follow Marc (Don Wood of AUTOMATONS), a homicidal maniac driven by demons buried deep within his soul, and Wendy (Christine Spencer), a young girl who lives life fast and hard without a second’s thought to the consequences. Their separate paths will eventually cross, but will it be on the road to salvation or the highway to hell?”
SATAN HATES YOU screens at the Coney Island Museum (1208 Surf Avenue) at 5 p.m. on the 25th. You can grab tickets here, and find out more about the Coney Island Film Festival, which is also presenting the Adrienne Barbeau-starring short ALICE JACOBS IS DEAD and a honorary showing of Darren Aronofsky’s harrowing REQUIEM FOR A DREAM (lensed in grungy Coney Island), at its official site.
Fessenden’s Glass Eye Pix produced SATAN HATES YOU, which will also be playing the Telluride Horror Show in Colorado this October (15-17). For details on that, head here and to read all about the making of SATAN HATES YOU, pick up Fango #296 for Debbie’s wild first-hand account.
