On their way back from a day at the beach, Ben (Charles Bateman), Nicky (Ahna Capri) and their daughter K.T. (Geri Reischl) stumble upon a badly crashed car, apparently with no survivors, so they want to do the right thing and report it in the next small town ... but the town's in an uproar as some of their children have disappeared, so much so that they almost lynch Ben and Nicky, and they see themselves forced to prove their daughter is theirs. Upon leaving town though, they have a flat tire, which forces them to walk back to town - and on the way they stumble upon the scene of a massacre ...

In town, the Sheriff (L.Q. Jones) can't do much but to offer them abode at the police station for the night - and it seems there's something sinister going on, as of late, massacres like the one above and disappearing children have become a regular occurence, and as the Sheriff, his deputy (Alvy Moore), the local doctor (Strother Martin) and the priest (Charles Robinson), they can't totally rule out some witches coven. Things get really tricky the next morning, when K.T. goes missing, and Ben, Nicky, the Sheriff, the deputy, the priest and the doctor go on an excursion to find her. But then Doc disappears, the priest goes mad, and the others are pretty much clueless as to what's going on - not knowing of course that there's a witches coven in town that needed all the children for their rejuvination ceremony ...


By 1971 and in the wake of Rosemary's Baby (1968), possessed children were only gradually becoming mainstream fodder, finally having arrived wtih films like The Exorcist (1973) and The Omen (1976). Compared to all of these movies (and quite in general), The Brotherhood of Satan is a rather low budget effort - which totally works for the movie though as it brings down the horror to a very intimate level. And the film sure is creepy enough, as despite its rather straight-forward storyline, it manages to shroud the narrative core in mystery for the longest time, makes a good job of creating unease in the finale, and the ultimate punchline, well, really packs a punch, making this one really cool piece of genre cinema.
