Synopsis

Lucien Greaves co-founds the Satanic Temple, a religious movement that calls for a revolution to save the soul of the US. Hail Satan? bears witness as the temple evolves from a small-scale media stunt to an internationally recognized religion with hundreds of thousands of adherents.

MUBI's take

A Satanic Temple of good Samaritans may sound like a contradiction in terms, but this provocatively witty documentary shows that this is not necessarily the case. Challenging our biases about Satanism, Penny Lane’s subversive film pinpoints the hypocrisies at the heart of modern American society.
