'Satan Lives' documentary stares down the devil himself

Just in time for Halloween, filmmakers Sam Dunn and Scot MacFadyen discuss their unflinching new documentary, Satan Lives.

Just in time for Halloween, filmmakers Sam Dunn and Scot MacFadyen join Shad to discuss their unflinching new documentary, Satan Lives.

The film takes a close look at faith, fear, and our enduring cultural obsession with the devil. Silly and humourous depictions of Satan are common, but the dark figure is taken a lot more seriously in this documentary — he is, after all, the ultimate metaphor for evil.

q: How do you conceive of Satan? A kitschy pop culture figure? A useful metaphor? A dark force to be feared?
