The Brotherhood of Satan (1971)

After watching Trauma, I watched a few more flicks that I will be reviewing over the next couple of days. One of those films was the 1971 horror entry The Brotherhood of Satan.

Plot/ A family is trapped in a desert town by a cult of senior-citizens who recruit the town's children to worship Satan.

This was a very interesting film, and one that I have found out is very underrated. The combination of witchcraft and Satan worship actually works really well in this forgotten chilling 1970s tale. The atmosphere is frantic and suspenseful, the acting solid and the ending is pretty good. Yes, there are some incoherent moments and some strange plot twists that detract from the overall feel, but it is definitely does not sink the movie. This forgotten Satanic horror flick is worth watching.
