A Feature-Length Doc Explores the World of ‘Satan’

Canadian filmmakers Scot McFadyen and Sam Dunn are set to shoot Satan, a feature length documentary about the Prince of Darkness for Alliance Films. Fresh from a Grammy nomination for their latest theatrical documentary Rush: Beyond the Lighted Stage, McFadyen and Dunn are also returning to their roots in chronicling the hard rock/heavy metal music genre with the TV series “Metal Evolution: The Series” for VH1 and CTV. At the same time, with heavy metal music long linked to Satanism, the Canadian duo will also stay in the theatrical world with a close-up of Beelzebub from Banger Films, their production shingle. With more than a quarter of Americans believing the Devil is real, the Canadian documentary aims to explore the historical origins and transformation of Satan as a symbol of evil, and his significance in contemporary art and popular culture.
