My Sweet Satan

 (screencap via)
Jim Van Bebber (pictured) produces exquisitely dark, self-financed, goresploitation films that explore America's history of ad-hoc cults, ritual killing and serial murder with an obsessional relish.
My Sweet Satan, 1994, is Van Bebber's take on the 1984 murder of Long Island teenager Gary Lauwers. The murder was ostensibly over a small drug debt but was later claimed by his murderer 'Acid King' Ricky Kasso to be a human sacrifice.  

Watch the classic short here: part 1/ part 2
