The Killing of Satan – Lumaban ka, Satanas – is a 1983 Filipino fantasy horror film directed by Efren C. Pinon and starring Ramon Revilla and Elizabeth Oropesa.
A man is chosen by his dead uncle to battle the forces of evil. He fights a being called “The Prince of Magic,” who shoots rays from his hands, makes heads spin around and hypnotizes people. He finally faces Satan himself and engages him in a battle of magic…
“Made in the Philippines and barely dubbed into English (one guy has a southern drawl?!), it’s a cool, funny, good v evil, low budget face-off with squibs, candles, magic sounds, wife punching, naked gals (in a cage), snake knotting, wrestling, blood, brief chunky gore and a character called ‘Uncle Ben'” Lurple.com
“The coolest thing with The Killing of Satan is the poster. It’s too cool. A perfect example how to make a cheap exploitation movie interesting. But the nicest thing with this movie is that it’s quite good. It’s wacko of course, not to mention weird and naive. But it’s one hell of a ride.” Ninja Dixon
