B&S About Movies: Church of Satan Film List

B&S ABOUT MOVIES: The 95 films on the Church of Satan film list

Originally compiled for Blanche Barton’s The Church of Satan — as approved by Magus Anton Szandor LaVey — the Church of Satan’s recommended film list is made up of films that LaVey enjoyed or felt exemplified Satanism. As Magus Peter H. Gilmore, High Priest of the Church of Satan, explained to our site earlier his week, there’s no official Church positions on various artforms, since the basis of the Church’s philosophy is individualism. This allows members to have their own personal lists as well as reasons why they feel these movies are on the film list. We’ve been covering several […]

Church of Satan wishes you a Happy New Year!


Tomorrow begins year LIV, Anno Satanas. As we’ve noted for several years, human society is in a raging turmoil of rabid tribalism, with barbarity on a perpetual rise. Individual liberty is threatened by many antagonists. We Satanists advocate for wider use of reason and forward thinking as tools to resist the trending rush towards authoritarianism, but that momentum is difficult to halt. Yet we fight our own battles in varied arenas to attain the goals our values have brought into focus. In time, society will move according to that will.  Whether circumstances might curtail the ends we seek, every moment […]

Church of Satan Sigil of Baphomet

Stanford Murder & Definition of Satanism His definition of a satanic murder? “It would have to be committed by two or more people to have some kind of a spiritual or religious connotation, you have to have multiple people involved,” Lanning said. – ABC 7 News, “40 years later, satanic reference still tied to Stanford murder” This definition ignores the importance of determining from what religion the “spiritual or religious” connotation has arisen. Satanism is a carnal, not a spiritual, religion. Our principles are against rape and murder. Even if someone misappropriates our symbols for use in a crime, it does […]

Church of Satan Sigil of Baphomet

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAGUS GILMORE! Happy birthday to me! Today is the 60th anniversary of my birth, and as this month began so did my 18th year as the High Priest of the Church of Satan. As has become my tradition, I enjoy giving those who are interested in my work a small gift. Back in the late 1980s I wrote a short story which is a sequel to H. P. Lovecraft’s THE MUSIC OF ERICH ZANN titled ZANN’S REPRISE. I went back to my original version of the tale and did some minor polishing and am offering it as a […]
