If you haven't seen this film yet...have I got a link for you...I absolutely adored this film!
"In nomine dei nostri Satanas luciferi excelsi...
In the name of Satan, ruler of the Earth, King of Hell. Come forth and bestow the blessings of Hell upon us. For we are your children, and we invoke thee this night...
Brother Satan I call forth this night, all of your forces, attain me..the elevation..of the superior human animal.
We are superior, and are superior not by ethnic means, but by the superior force of the will..the imagination, the creativity, and the very essence of resourcefulness, and survival, that is the heart and the very soul of the Satanist.
Be with us tonight, place us in a position of sovereignty, that we might look down upon our inferiors, and cast their kin into the morass of mediocrity, where they belong. Hail Satan! Shemhamforash!
To a return of understanding, an understanding of stability, an understanding of tranquility, an understanding of compassion, an understanding of vengeance, an understanding of sensuality, an understanding of love, and an understanding of triumph...
I recognize necessity supreme, life ever lasting, World without End...
So it is done."
~A.S.LaVey's Ritual Scene after the den.
I consider this movie one of my favorites of all time and have watched it countless times.
I found it highly effective in showing LaVey the man.
I rather enjoyed the sneaky bit where the 'goofy teeth' novelty is shown in his Johnson & Smith catalog and quickly gives a 'before and after' when he had acquired his new dentures.
The man was truly a class act. Film quality is often a reflection of time period. Good films are timeless.http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=2647125899438443943&ei=wzDlSvqjNJOerAKgv_3tDQ&q=speak+of+the+devil+anton+lavey#
