The Killing of Satan (Efren C. Pinon, 1983)

Drafthouse Films LogoMove over, Jesus! Lando San Miguel saves!  The Killing of Satan is a Filipino fantasy movie that tells the age-old tale of God vs. Satan.  That is if God entrusted his battle to a diminutive man named Lando who wore a jean jacket and hi-top sneakers and Satan was an even more diminutive man with a plastic red pitchfork and a goatee.  Like all genre films from the Philippines, this one throws logic and sanity out the window.  In their place, we get laser battles, manimals, zombies, boobs, and face mutilation.  It’s a psychedelic blast of gory absurdity, an epic example of Christian exploitation filled with dead-serious emotions and dead-serious hilarity.  All in the name of God’s revenge.
