Reverend Count MoriVond reads The Satanic Scriptures

Dr. Phibes in the Satanic Film List

Satanic Sources: Anton LaVey’s Film List Refreshed!

What makes a film Satanic? It doesn’t require overt devils and demons. It can be a musical, a crime drama, or even a comedy. Satanic films often have a certain evocative atmosphere. They can be old and almost forgotten or perhaps they’re offensive to society at large. Maybe they are rare and hard to find. These are a few among the many possible traits that can make a film truly Satanic. Magus Anton LaVey‘s list of films, first published in Magistra Blanche Barton‘s THE CHURCH OF SATAN (1990), has been given a perceptive commentary by Warlock G. Edwin Taylor, which […]

The Seventh Satanic Statement - Das Tierdrama Ritual

The Rite Stuff: Anton LaVey’s The Satanic Rituals

To celebrate this Walpurgisnacht, I am publishing the introduction I wrote for THE SATANIC RITUALS. A South American publisher of exquisite volumes is releasing authorized versions in Spanish of both THE SATANIC BIBLE and THE SATANIC RITUALS. Since it had none, I was asked to write an introduction to the latter book, and I completed it on January 13 in 2020. The Spanish translation of this essay—“The Rite Stuff”—will appear in the new release, which may only be for sale in specific South American nations. More information will be forthcoming when these books emerge. For now, you can read my […]

Wicked Walpurgisnacht

Wicked Walpurgisnacht!

This year’s holiday marks the 55th anniversary of the founding of the Church of Satan, and my 20th anniversary of becoming its High Priest. It has been my honor to guide this organization into the 21st Century, maintaining the unadulterated legacy of our founder, Anton Szandor LaVey, in a trajectory that both expands and enhances his vision for the world’s first carnal religion. My focus emphasizes the radical individualism that is the heart of Satanism. My method is to both cultivate and inspire our exemplary members to show the validity of our perspective via their own unique achievements. Our members […]

Anton Szandor LaVey and Togare

Hail Anton Szandor LaVey!

Today marks the 91st anniversary of the birth of our founder, Anton Szandor LaVey. Satanists hold one’s natal anniversary to be our own highest of holidays, so many of us take this day to recall the brilliance of the man who, in 1966, launched Satanism as a full-fledged religion. The philosophy he crafted was built on atheism, viewing humans as just another animal—sometimes better but more often worse than the rest who share this wonderful planet with us. Embracing Satan for the adversarial aspect essential to this word, he set forth a conceptual framework for a carnal religion in opposition […]

WE ARE SATANISTS by Blanche Barton

WE ARE SATANISTS by Magistra Blanche Barton

Preordering is live for WE ARE SATANISTS! Blanche Barton’s new book contains the material from her 1990 out of print original, The Church of Satan, but this is not a verbatim reprint—it’s way more.  The new book tells, then continues that story, recounting everything that happened since 1991 and including writings from members, photos, original newsletters and much more never-published material.  At over 700 pages, it’s truly a beast!
