"Where There Is Light" ~ Great Adversary, Or Ultimate Scapeg
Brian E. Erland | Brea, CA - USA | 02/05/2008
(1 out of 5 stars)
"I found the '07 release, `Biography - Satan: Prince of Darkness' to be an extremely shallow examination of the history of the Devil. It is narrow in scope, incomplete, lacking in content. The documentary limits itself only to the Christian perspective which is fine if that was the target audience it was aiming for. I found it surprising that even within the narrow scope of the Judeo-Christian faiths the program is unable to provide anything profound or meaningful in its allotted 141 minutes.
The program is at best a bare bones, cursory approach to the subject matter, offering no pertinent information or insight on the nature of metaphysical evil. In fact the narrative is so poorly scripted it borders on being downright laughable. There is so much left out and what is there is poorly presented.
- There is no mention of the offspring of the "Sons of God" (angels) known as the Nephilim.
- The Templars are nowhere to be found.
- Mephistopheles, the most important demonic figure of the 20th century is never mentioned (they do show an illustration of him).
These are but a few of the problems with this presentation, there are many more. I recommend that you pass on this one."
Satan: DVD Of Mis-Information
C. Dunn | New Albany, IN | 02/05/2008
(1 out of 5 stars)
"I must confess in regards to the so-called documentary...if mis-information is what you are looking for?! Look no further. From the get go when Lucifer is said to be another name for Satan you can sure bet that single minded Christian antics are at work here.
There is so much to gripe about here that I will say this: HOGWASH.
Avoid this at all costs and look for more interesting documentaries such as: Satanis, Omen Legacy, Angeli Bianchi-Angeli Neri, Scream Greats Volume 2:Satanism and Satanic Witchcraft, and a really good documentary on the Mondo Macabro release "Satanico Pandomonium".
Portrait of the Prince of Darkness
James King | Australia | 10/31/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)
"This documentary proved quite informative, as well as value for money. Despite scant attention being given to pre-Christian concepts of evil and the underworld, the real pleasure was the bonus feature, 'Hell: The Devil's Domain', which runs substantially longer than the first feature and delves into the many fascinating artistic interpretations of Satan and his kingdom of Hell. Excerpts from interviews with various academics, authors and Jesuit Theologians are woven into the narrative, which lends the material much articulation. Unfortunately for Christians, it won't scare people back into church. But it does shed some light on the origins and evolution of one of the most fascinating literary figures of all time. For those interested in delving further, read Jeffrey Burton Russell's seminal works on the subject, especially 'Lucifer: The Devil in the Middle Ages' and 'Mephistopheles: The Devil in the Modern World'.
