A small rural town and a family of outsiders, both trapped in the demonic grip of… The Brotherhood of Satan!

Recently widowed Ben, his glamourous girlfriend Nicky and his small daughter K.T. are on a road trip across the Southwest, which comes to a screeching halt when they witness an accident. Heading to the nearby isolated desert town of Hillsboro to report it to the Sheriff (played by L.Q. Jones), they are met with a hostile reaction from the locals, who are gripped by paranoia and fear due to a series of gruesome deaths, as well as the mysterious disappearance of eleven of the community’s children. As the bodies continue to pile up around them, Ben and his family find themselves joining the sheriff, a local priest and the town’s enigmatic physician Doc Duncan (Strother Martin, Cool Hand Luke) in the midst of a mystery that points towards a deadly satanic cult...

Produced by Alvy Moore and L.Q. Jones, a veteran character actor best known for his work with Sam Peckinpah, The Brotherhood of Satan is an atmospheric and chilling tale of terror that provides a crucial missing link between Rosemary’s Baby (1968) and The Devil’s Rain (1975) in the cycle of turn-of-the-seventies shockers involving sinister devil-worshipping cults lurking within the dark shadows of modern-day America.

'The Brotherhood of Satan' has an unsettling, surrealistic tonality.

Taking a similarly subversive approach to off-kilter horror as Robert Voskanian's 'The Child', Joseph Losey's 'The Damned' and Herk Harvey's 'Carnival of Souls', director Bernard McEveety's rewardingly warped Satanic Shocker 'The Brotherhood of Satan' has an unsettling, surrealistic tonality that boldly separates it from the multitude of 'Rosemary's Baby' cash-in clones. A young family's cheery road trip rapidly becomes a sinisterly sulphurous nightmare after stopping off at an isolated, bizarrely hostile rural town to dutifully report a serious road accident somewhat inexplicably finds them all unable to leave! The Satanic Cult which has so insidiously taken over the dusty town of Hillsboro has a truly iniquitous modus operandi, supernaturally slaughtering the parents of the local children in order to vilely perpetrate a most blasphemous covenant with the devil! Time has been rather kind to Bernard McEveety's rigorously engrossing, Baphomet-blasted B-Movie, not only does this exceptionally creepy film have a palpably Rod Serling'd sense of inexorable doom, one has great sympathy for the Satanically beleaguered protagonists, kindly patriarch Ben (Charles Bateman), sexy stepmom to-be Nicky (Ahna Capri) and lovable blonde-haired sprite K.T (Geri Reischl). Not only does McEveety's 'The Brotherhood of Satan' have a delectably odd atmosphere, the film's inherent strangeness is increased exponentially by the fervid, magisterially mad performance of Strother Martin's divinely demonic, evilly evangelising Doc Duncan, with creative co-producers Alvy Moore and charismatic Pekinpah alumnus L.Q Jones certainly no less electrifying in their acting roles! A dramatically and aesthetically satisfying 70s horror film, with Ray Boyle's tremendously vibrant set design, and composer Jaime Mendoza-Nava adding eerie verisimilitude to 'The Brotherhood of Satan' delightfully devilish mien!

Small town threat from the American Nightmare era

A family drives into a small American town and discovers that it has been isolated and is under attack by a Satanist cult. This film clearly had a limited budget, but it does interestingly combine several tropes and has a sense of visual color and style. Definitely worth getting if you are a fan of the 1970’s American Nightmare era of horror.
