Oh. My. God.



A piece of my soul died when I watched Black Devil Doll From Hell, but at least it's good to know that I still have a threshold. By way of review, I'll just say that, as far as misogynist 1980s shot-on-video blaxploitation ventriloquist dummy horror porn movies go, it's probably one of the better ones.

It's an experience, isn't it?

One I'll not soon forget. His tongue looked like bacon.

I hope it's one of the ONLY ones.

At least, there's a "not a remake" of it, called "Black Devil Doll" from 2007.
See me shudder.

Now you have to track down the elusive director's second (and final, as far as anyone knows) movie, Tales from Qua-Dead Zone.

Sad truth: there was this wickedly cute girl I had a crush on back in the day. A bunch of us had planned to come back to my place andwatch Black Devil Doll From Hell, which I'd just gotten on video. It ended up she was the only one who showed up. So my first -- and last -- date with her was making her watch Black Devil Doll From Hell. Couldn't I have showed a different movie, or just made out with her, once I realized no one else was showing up? No, not really.

Memsaab, I was going to assure you that it was in fact the only one, but then House's comment made clear that that is not the case. What a world.

Keith, that's just further proof that you are a man of principle. I think that in that situation, no matter what the temptations are, one has to say to oneself, "I am either the man that I am or one who says he is going to watch Black Devil Doll From Hell and doesn't follow through."

You know what? At least Rob Zombie isn't doing the remake.

It's too bad about Rob Zombie - it would keep him away from further Halloween films.
And just imagine: the doll was born as a pretty little child of undeclared gender (shock value!), the child of a stripper (double shock value!) who lives in a trailer (triple shock value) etc. It practically writes itself.

Keith, really, would you WANT to see a girl again who couldn't appreciate Black Devil Doll From Hell?
