Satanic Panic was first announced in Variety in 2015, with Ted Geoghegan attached to direct. The original script was penned by Grady Hendrix, based on a story by Hendrix and Geoghegan. When pre-production halted, the two would go on to work together on the 2017 film Mohawk, which Geoghegan would direct.
Renewed plans to create the film were announced in June 2018, with Chelsea Stardust selected to direct; Dallas Sonnier, Adam Goldworm, and Amanda Presmyk slated to produce; and Fangoria Editor-in-Chief Phil Nobile Jr. to serve as executive producer.
In October 2018 actress Rebecca Romijn was chosen to headline the film as the leader of the Satanic cult, with Hayley Griffith set to co-star as the pizza girl turned unwilling sacrifice. Other cast members, including Jerry O'Connell, Ruby Modine, and Jordan Ladd, were also announced.
