Here are some Devils. Please feel free to join in with the Satan In The Sinema game and add some of your own.

  1. Emil Jannings in Murnau’s Faust.1926.
  2. Walter Huston in William Dieterle’s The Devil And Daniel Webster. 1941

  3. Laird Cregar in Ernst Lubitsch’s Heaven Can Wait. 1943

(interesting how all the Second World War Devils are quintessentially jolly fellows)

  1. Silvia Pinal in Luis Buñuel’s Simon Of The Desert. 1965
    (NSFW) Yep. As you always suspected, the Devil is a woman.

  2. Viggo Mortensen in Gregory Widen’s The Prophecy. 1995

    1. AAARGHH! I’d forgotten about one of my favorite film Devils, Peter Cook in Bedazzled! Here’s an interesting thing, a ‘special feature’ in the days before DVD extras.


    2. Not sure if Tim Curry’s Darkness from Legend would count, but you gotta love Curry and that Rob Bottin makeup, even if it’s not one of Ridley Scott’s finest moments.


    3. Baphome (or Eddie Powell) as The Devil himself in The Devil Rides Out


    4. Rosalinda Celentano as Satan in Passion of the Christ


    5. Telly Savalas as The Devil in Lisa and the Devil


    6. Bertrand Altmann as The Devil in Devil Hunter
      (mental Jess Franco film but you know … boobies!)


    7. Benjamin Christensen as the Devil (including the famous dancing nuns)


    8. The Slime as the corporeal embodiment of Satan in Prince of Darkness


    9. The Rain … no, Two Tone Slime … no, maybe it’s Ernest Borgnine,
      I don’t know, it’s more mental than that Franco movie but look it’s got William Shatner in it so it’s got to be good … right?
      … as the Devil in The Devils Rain.


    10. I’d like to balance the large amount of “evil” that has been building up with these posts with an opposite message for “good”
      … ehem … here goes;
      “Don’t listen to the Devil, he’s a very bad boy,
      embrace Cthulhu, Cthulhu loves you, Cthulhu will hug you*”

      *warning; there may be slime involved.


    11. “Aah, just one more thing”, as Columbo would say. Whoever was inside the bits and pieces that assembled Satan in Blood On Satan’s Claw. I’m particularly fond of the eyebrows that he/she/it grows on Linda Hayden that make her look like Cara Delevingne. Eyebrows are particularly important to Lucifer. They convey emotion. Not that we see much of that once the thing’s up and shambling around. The film tells us that “Undreamed of methods” are required to get rid of it, but happily those just turn out to be some dogs and a big, wobbly sword.


    12. and there’s more;
      Harvey Keitel – Little Nicky
      George Burns – Oh God, You Devi
      Jack Nicholson – The Witches of Eastwick
      Dave Grohl – Tenacious D: The Pick of Destiny
      Peter Fonda – Ghost Rider
      Jeff Goldblum – Mr. Frost
      Gary Oldman – Beat the Devil (short movie)
      not sure if these were actually the Devil
      Emmanuelle Seigner – The Ninth Gate
      Kevin Spacey (as Keyser Söze/the Devil???) – The Usual Suspects
      David Warner (as Evil??) – Time Bandits

      and a special mention to John Cleese
