History YMMV / Belzebuth

Go To



** Subverted with [[spoiler:Canetti, who started offering up child sacrifices to Belzebuth to back out of their deal. At the end, he redeems himself by sealing away Belzebuth for good, even though it ends up costing him his own life. And even then, [[AmbiguousSituation it's unclear for sure if Belzebuth was even telling the truth]].]]

Though his DealWithTheDevil could be seen as the spiritual equivalent to this, as he willingly damns himself at the end.]]

Added DiffLines:

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Was Belzebuth telling the truth about [[spoiler:Canetti sacrificing children to back out of his pact with him? There's evidence for and against it. The apparitions of the children at the end could either be the children Canetti sacrificed, or they could be the children Belzebuth had murdered. And given his reputation as the "[[ConsummateLiar father of lies]]", it seems likely.]]


* CompleteMonster: Belzebuth is none other than {{Satan}} himself. Hellbent on cementing his reign over the earth, he does everything in his power to ensure that the Second Coming never reaches fruition. A thousand years after the death of Jesus, he engineered the [[UsefulNotes/TheCrusades First Crusade]], causing thousa]nds of deaths, including that of the new Christ child. Nearly another millennium later, Belzebuth started possessing hosts to kill large groups of [[WouldHurtAChild children]] and then themselves, with newborn babies among these children, and demanding child [[HumanSacrifice sacrifices]] in exchange for backing out of pacts made with him. He possesses [[TheProtagonist Detective Emmanuel Ritter]] after luring him into his grasp with the promise of returning his wife and child to him, and uses Ritter to carry out more chaos and violence with the aim of murdering Isa, the reincarnation of Christ.

* MoralEventHorizon:
** Belzebuth was way, ''way'' past it before the start of the movie. Yes, even ''before'' massacring an entire nursery.
