(Son of the Morning) Star Role

I’d love to see a flick or other type of fiction that actually shows the viewpoint of La Vey Satanism, as opposed to the “kill-babies-and-defile-virgins-to-summon-Satan” Christian stereotypes which are all too prevalent. Hell, even a film or book showing a sympathetic Lucifer would be good….

Anyone know any sources to pursue?

    Film: Devil’s Advocate.

    Yes the Devil’s Advocate is very good. There is a movie called Bless the Child…
    Then there is also Memnoch the Devil, which is a book by Anne Rice.
    As for the sterotypical side of Satanism…I have not come across a film or a piece of fiction that has not portrayed it (at least to some extent) as “kill-babies-and-defile-virgins-to-summon-Satan”. Not to say that there isn’t any, but these are the only books and films that come to mind, that come close to what you are looking for.

    Well, I can’t gather any film sources from the top of my head right now, but I can recommend a comic book series showing not only a sympathetic Lucifer but a philopsophical and very intellectually stimulating one. It’s pretty well known. It’s the SANDMAN SERIES by Neil Gaiman (a fellow Brit!), and it’s brilliant. Maybe you’ve heard or already read?
    Hope that helped in some way. :/
    Well, if you’re ever interested in comic books.
    I feel like such a geek suggesting this.

      Hey, drop the stigma! I like reading a good comic/manga/graphic novel myself – it’s nae big deal…check out my Preacher icon…
      Sandman – I’ve heard that mentioned in many a voice of acclaim. I might have to get round to actually reading it sometime this century…thanks, Toyin..:)

    I recommend the Prophecy –
    It stars Chrisopher Walken, Elias Koteas, and Eric Stoltz. While Lucifer is in it, he is not the bad guy, and actually helps the heros quite a bit. 🙂

      Re: I recommend the Prophecy –
      I remember seeing that I think, many moons ago – I might have to track it down so I can give it a proper viewing this time. Thanks, Stax!
      (BTW, who plays Lucifer? It’s been sooo long since I last cast eyes on it….)
