The Evil (1978), Angel Heart (1987), and Mr. Frost (1990).
From the very first horror film, Georges Méliès’ The House of the Devil from 1896, the Devil started his film career and has been going strong ever since! Appearing in a variety of roles, from bit parts to main characters, from comedies to dramas, from the campy to straight up terrifying, Satan has made his appearance numerus times over the last century. But it is his appearance in the horror genre, of course, where we are focusing.
In this episode, we discuss three different titles, with three very difference actors, playing different characterizations of Satan, but all of them entertaining and well worth seeking out. Or at least we think so.
