Audience Reviews for Satan Never Sleeps


An uneasy mix of political and religious drama with some troubling messages and actions from the characters. One particular end result is actually head shakingly nonsensical and negates much of what has gone before. Most of the performances are good but Clifton Webb is especially fine in his last role, noble and vinegary as only he could be.
