As a tribute to Spliff, and in an attempt to trump him at the gaim of media trivia, I submit these nominees for "Best Movie/TV Satan."

De Niro in "Angel Heart"

Or perhaps Al Pachino in "Devil's Advocate"

"You will sit at the head of every table . . ."

I'll go with Harvey Keitel in Little Nicky. Runner-up would be that devil that briefly flashed on the screen in The Exorcist. Third place would go to that devil standing in silhouette in the doorway of the church in The Prince of Darkness.

I'll have to go for Harvey Keitel in Little Nicky. Not because I like the film, it was mildly amusing at best, but Harveys just suave enough to take the crown from most contenders.

Although I haven't seen that many TV/Movie satans (I don't know why, I just realized - where's all the satans?). I was going to say Randall Flag in the televised version of The Stand, but he wasn't a "traditional" satan, nor was he called satan, or had any showing links with Hell. So I guess he wouldn't have counted

oooooh! good question.

Not sure if it counts but I always liked Evil Homer

failing that, I would have to say the best acted out Devil in a film was by Peter Cook in the original Bedazzled!

And I was going to mention Liz Hurley in the remake.

Also, South Park.

But for the traditional model, you can't go past the 20s Swedish silent film on the history of witchcraft, Haxan.

Tim Curry in Legend was pretty freaky.

but upon checking his filmography, I cannot find a single movie where he actually played Satan. Saruman, Dracula, and other evil types, but never THE nemesis. . . .

The Satan in South Park is funny. However, i will give another vote for Harvey Keitel in Little Nicky.

hah...yes, Satan in SouthPark is really, really funny.

Though props also go to Viggo Mortensen's Lucifer in The Prophecy (yes, yes, I know, it's not quite the same thing. But it's close), and Pacino's turn in Devil's Advocate.

Why has no one mentioned the devil from Legend? Or was he not suppose to be Satan? It's been awhile since I've seen it.

The Amityville Horror, where the devil was in the lighbulbs, and oil from theb asement oozed onto the guy's face, and the little girl called satan daddy... I was little when I saw that and had nightmares for years.

Now all these movies today seem to repeat that kind of thing... Little girls acting all weird ect.

And what's that movie where people walk by the devil who is inside someone and he touches that person and switches bodies??

that was f'ed up.

After capturing and prosecuting a brutal serial killer, detective John Hobbes is puzzled by a string of bizarre murders that seem to suggest that the killer is alive--or at least somehow present on Earth. With the help of a beautiful theosophist and his stalwart partner, Hobbes realizes that the killer's spirit is being transferred between the bodies it possesses--and that it may be impossible to stop him now.

But there was a series of pornos that came out 20 years ago called "the devil in Mrs. Jones," but I wouldn't know who played the devil . . .

you know, just as a quick aside, I really thought "Fallen" was an incredible movie. It never got the attention it deserved. Maybe because it was a "guy flick," and too complex for the sheeple/muggles in the street. hmm.

I'm with Pacino in Devil's Advocate.

Does the little boy in Omen count? Cause man he was really kinda creepy.

posted on Aug, 17 2005 @ 09:44 AM
How about that Rotweiler that guarded the little boy? I am still scared of dogs to this day . . .

And the dog was the devil wasn't it? Didn't it give birth to the boy in Italy?

Personally I think that Viggo Mortensen as Lucifer in the movie "The Prophecy" was fantastic. Also, Peter Stormare as Satan in the movie "Constantine".

I will say though if it wasn't for Al Pacino "Devil's Advocate" would have sucked big time.

I'm going to go with Anton LaVey in "Rosemary's Baby." Sure, he was onscreen for about five seconds and had no lines, but you have to admit, when you are casting someone in the role of the devil, he's the perfect choice.

al pacino in devil's advocate is awesome. but as someone already chose that, i'm going to say peter cook in 'Bedazzled'

link I on global ignore or something cos it seems that the majority of the posts I make are repeated..

Al Pacino in the Devil's Advocate...hands down. He's a scumbag lawyer and gets a BJ under the table while having dinner with his son man! And that scene on the bus, with the thug? C'mon, Pacino was Satan incarnate....

Of course, if Liz Hurley was really the devil, I'd want a one-way ticket straight to Hell!

EDIT: Diggin' the Kolchak avatar...
They're making a remake if you didn't know....
