Plot
Samantha’s shitty job is about got get shittier. She’s a pizza girl, she’s treated like crap by everyone, she’s a virgin, and she’s at the wrong place at the wrong time. She’s played by Hayley Griffith, an inexperienced but talented actress surrounded by familiar faces like Rebecca Romijn, Jerry O'Connell, Jordan Ladd, and AJ Bowen. All do a bang-up job.
Satanic Panic was produced by Fangoria, which in itself is reassuring. The film sucks you right in and spits you out at the end credits. At no time will you look at your watch. I guarantee you’ll be hooked all along. There are virtually no slow moments. The editing is as tight as it needs to be. You can expect a niched film that somehow still appeals to the mass.
You can’t shoe-horn or label Satanic Panic quite accurately. These aren’t your typical Satanists. Parallels with classic horror films can be drawn, but they are vague influences. This movie is its own thing. It has an unusual structure. It’s unpredictable. The cast is mostly female and men, here, are garbage at best. The budget is considerable, and the cinematography irreproachable.
