Movie Info

Four friends looking for a good time are lured into a strange and dangerous netherworld in this wildly offbeat horror film from France. It's Christmas Eve, and twentysomethings Bart (Olivier Barthelemy), Ladj (Ladj Ly), Thai (Nico Le Phat Tan), and Yasmine (Leila Bekhti) are bored and looking for fun. They end up at a rowdy dance club where, after Bart gets into a fight, they meet Eve (Roxane Mesquida), a sexy girl who seems to take a liking to the three guys. Eve invites the foursome to come

Kids-in-the-country vibe mixes teen horror with Deliverance

Manages a playful sensibility, reveling in its repugnance and enjoying the heck out of its twisted ending.

At the end, you feel they should have thrown out Rosemary's baby with the bath water.

An eyecatching calling card for its first-time director.

If only Cassel had saved his performance for a collaboration with the League of Gentlemen.

Despite the air of brutish aggression and sexual predatoriness, little happens until gory retribution finally rears its head.

Totally bonkers - but all the more gripping for it.

The film, shot in a demented, headlong style, seems to have no idea of its direction other than the shelf marked "cult".

As a grotesque parody of the hillbilly-terror genre, it has a real wit and energy.

A contrived and very self-conscious genre piece of hardcore black-comedy horror in a 1970s vein.

Has plenty of atmosphere but can't make up for unpleasant characters and a meandering story.

February 23, 2007 Full Review Source: Film4

Vincent Cassel is the overpowering presence here; his perma-grinning, unkempt Joseph is brilliantly unsettling.

Despite some pretentious touches - a night-spot named Club Styxx, a guard dog called Cerberus - Satan doesn't take itself too seriously.

Entertaining and genuinely creepy at times this boasts strong performances from its French cast.

Without being overtly graphic, this audaciously boorish and naughty film delivers the familial conspiracy of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre with unnerving Deliverance-like hicks as slapstick riffs...

Audience Reviews for Sheitan (Satan)

Obnoxious amoral twentysomethings party at a creepy French provincial estate where the caretaker has a permanent unsettling grin, and nothing is as it seems. Ambitious attempt at a ROSEMARY'S BABY type atmosphere, but the young protagonists are intolerable and live to annoy the audience for far too long, and the multiple false endings were a bad idea. Gets worse on a second viewing. This movie really hates young people, which is cool and all, but it's a bit over the top.

Poor, saved only by Cassel's general brilliance. The plot was unmoving, the quality was generally low.

A better type of teen horror, but for me failed toward the end. It was very predictable, but the progression of the story was enjoyable.

Vincent Cassel plays a character quite unlike any you've seen him play before, he plays it well, but isn't really a film that is up to his level of acting.

It's a shame a well played character by Vincent Cassel wasn't enough to save this tripe
