Avildsen turns the dial up to 11, throwing music biz satire and heavy metal bombast into the mix, as well as shaping a cautionary tale about the cost of stardom.
American Satan doesn't put enough time toward one of the most crucial relationships in the movie for it to work. But the acting is excellent, the directing is stylized and energetic, the characters are interesting, the ending is remarkable.
There's no mystery to the allure of the dark side. Amerian Satan sets out openly to show you a good time.
In the space of 90 minutes, it captures some of the worst acting ever committed to film...
A maddening hyper-nightmare of smoke, hypodermic needles, and hard rock that somehow is far more endearing than it ought to be.
A smart, wickedly funny, and biting satire that deserves to become a cult classic.
Hits every cliche you can find in both Faustian-bargain tales as well as musician-drama/rags-to-riches tales, and it hits them HARD. But I still really enjoyed American Satan. If I try to keep it professional, it is really easy to find holes to poke in the quality of American Satan, but that doesn't stop it from having really spoken to me on a level somehow simultaneously both shallow and personal. American Satan will probably not resonate with the majority of audiences, and objectively, it's not a great film, but I think (and hope) it will find some sort of a place in cult cinema.
