Satranic Panic is another stellar inclusion to both Alice Maio Mackay’s filmography and the wave of independent queer horror we’ve had for the last few years…[it is her] most ambitious and stylish film yet, tackling transphobic fear-mongering at her new creative peak

Red Broadwell, Dread Central

Friends Aria and Jay head out on a devilish road trip to unearth the mystery behind the murder of Max, Aria’s brother and the love of Jay’s life. With Aria’s demon radar firing, nothing from the underworld can stand in the way as they uncover a conspiracy of prejudice and self-hatred, that leads closer to home than they’d ever imagined.

A bloody, demon-infested road movie about the power of claiming one’s identity and the importance of chosen family, Satranic Panic exposes the hypocrisy of the status quo with biting wit, killer drag, and incredible tits.
