A documentary titled “Hail Satan?” was released on Easter Sunday and everyone thought it was doomed to fail.
Sadly, that’s not the case.
And what the mainstream media is saying about “Hail Satan?” will make you furious.
Hollywood studios, celebrities, and the media blackball nearly every single Christian movie that manages to see the light of day in a movie theater.
But they’ve taken a different position on this Satanist movie.
“Hail Satan?” is receiving glowing reviews from the press and being praised as a must-see movie.
The movie is even generating extra revenue by being intentionally released on Easter Sunday to upset Christians.
The Wrap reports:
Sundance darling documentary “Hail Satan?” was released just in time for Easter weekend, and it was able to avoid box-office damnation.
Magnolia released Penny Lane’s documentary at the IFC Center in New York this past Wednesday, with Los Angeles receiving the film at the ArcLight Hollywood and The Landmark on Friday. From those three screens, “Hail Satan?” earned a solid $25,700, for a per-screen average of $8,567. The film has earned critical acclaim for its surprising examination of The Satanic Temple, challenging preconceived notions about the organization and documenting the media stunts it performs in the name of religious freedom and the separation of church and state. It has a 96% score on Rotten Tomatoes.
The New York Times, NPR, Rolling Stone, and dozens of others have all written radiant reviews for the movie, raving about it’s “thought-provoking” subject and theme.
Yet, the pro-life movie “Unplanned” was completely blackballed by the media and MPAA, which tried their hardest to ensure the film would fail.
Media outlets refused to run advertisements for the film.
Reporters either refused to review the movie entirely or intentionally gave it poor reviews to hurt ticket sales.
And Hollywood celebrities went out of their way to trash the film for being pro-life.
Yet, somehow, these same reporters and media outlets have nothing but great things to say about a Satanist movie.
Does the difference between how the two films were covered expose a bias reporters and Hollywood elitists have against Christian and pro-life movies?
