“My Master Satan: 3 Tales of Drug Fueled Violence” is one strange trip. The plot is good and has potential. However, the execution is not so good. Shot on VHS, the film takes the approach of a low-budget, underground snuff film. Awesome idea! But…what the heck happened to the production?
The best thing about “My Master Satan: 3 Tales of Drug Fueled Violence” is the plot. The story has a lot of potential if the interlocking message had developed a different way. As for the soundtrack, it was loud and dark. It offered just the right tone for the film. This holds true for the song that plays during the ending credits.
The underlying messages to Dakota Bailey’s film are clear. One of those messages were:
“The only devil is man himself.”
I think this was an excellent addition to the film. It gives the production some brownie points. Had it not been for these messages, I would have just thought this was one big confused mess.
“My Master Satan: 3 Tales of Drug Fueled Violence” is a big blur. It’s hit-or-miss, and I definitely missed a lot. My focus and concentration fell off by the randomness projected on-screen. During the course of the film, I had no idea what was going on or what I was watching.
The cinematography of the film had no visual effectiveness. The film is hazy and choppy; it cuts in and out at a constant rate. Some parts are also played in fast motion, so it’s easy to get thrown off here and there. I’ve seen films shot on cell phones that have way better cinematography.
The practical effects and special effects were mediocre. The technique was nonsensical almost comical. Satan looked more like a dazed-out hologram on a wall. The film seems more rushed than anything. There could be some improvements in just about every technical department. That special attention that would and could do this film plenty of justice.
