    Satan's Slave

    ★★★½

    Animated montage/tarot card/skull illustration intro credits with (seven man band) orchestral music rolls us right into a fog-filled, cinemascoped black mass, with a robed, heavy metal horn-handed, eye-glowing, goat-headed priest doing his best to recite the final track of Coven’s 1969 LP as his torch-wielding hooded creepy cronies drag in a spaced out, spread out blond bimbo to be stripped down and tied up to be fed as din-din to the devil.
