Murder goes luxe in this hilarious horror romp produced by the top tome in terror, Fangoria. From the creative pairing of renowned author Grady Hendrix (Horrorstör, My Best Friend’s Exorcism) and a cast led by Rebecca Romijn (X-Men, The Librarians) and Jerry O’Connell (Billions, Piranha 3D), Satanic Panic is a delightfully camp peek into the dastardly vice of the 1%.
When Sam’s first day slinging pizza is a total wash-out, she decides to go against the advice of her colleagues and take one last delivery in the wealthy enclave out of town. Once again stiffed for a tip, she breaks into an imposing mansion to try to convince them to pay up. Unfortunately, she’s stepped right into a Satan-worshipping, demon-summoning, virgin-sacrificing coven! The bad news just keeps coming for our hero, as these society sorcerers are down a virgin and today is sacrifice day. What ensues is a fight for survival as Sam takes on murderous babysitters, blood-crazed soccer mums and more than her fair share of lustful demons.
Welcome to the 1%, where the rich get richer and the poor get offered to Baphomet.
