SATAN HATES YOU - The Fangoria Review

"SATAN HATES YOU is an unusual little picture combining gory excess, issues of faith, black humor and low-budget New York City grit."
- Michael Gingold, FANGORIA

SATAN HATES YOU is now playing for one week only at the reRun Gastropub in NYC!

The NY Times Hates Satan!

Perhaps the Devil made her do it, but Jeannette Catsoulis of the New York Times was not amused by SATAN HATES YOU.

"Satan may not hate us, but the film’s writer and director, 
James Felix McKenney, surely does."
- Jeannette Catsoulis, THE NEW YORK TIMES

The Village Voice and Slant didn't feel particularly blessed by the film either:

"Conceptually, the film's a hoot: The very idea of having Scrimm, famous for playing a mute extraterrestial body snatcher in the PHANTASM movies, star as an angelic voice of salvation, is perversely perfect."

"Satan Hates You is self-conscious trash with occasional bite."
- Chuck Bowen, SLANT

May the Lord forgive them.
