‘Depicting the Devil’ is challenging for writers, artists and filmmakers. In Goethe's Faust, Mephistopheles' character is conveyed in words of nullity and darkness. Milton's Paradise Lost describes a fiend whose defiance towards God makes him a kind of perverse hero. The Devil is often described as an appealing character who tricks people into committing sins. Satan in art has been depicted as a serpent, a monster and a man. Christian art represents the Devil using naked, dark forms with bestial features, committing revolting acts in a Hellish landscape. In the modern age, cinema has contributed to the personification of evil more than any other medium.
