The title says it all
Black Devil Doll from Hell
Was is a nightmare? Or was it for real?
A woman buys a doll at a magic shop. Unbeknownst to her, the doll is possessed by an evil spirit, and it proceeds to take her over.
I've been lead to believe that there's a pool going on as to which film is finally going to break me. For those who have put money down, I will admit that this one came very close.
This movie is fucking awful. And not the charming kind of awful that people should rally around. No, the kind of awful where someone like me (someone who revels in shit movies) has a hard time making it through the whole thing.
Now, there were a couple of horrible things that I enjoyed. First and foremost was the soundtrack. The "theme song" sounded like Butthole Surfers, so that's good. And the rest was done on one of those Casio keyboards everyone had in…
This movie will change your life. Will it change it for the better? Probably not, but maybe. Maybe watching this will "fulfill your most heartfelt desire"
What can I say about this movie? It is probably the most poorly made of any of the Bleeding Skull Challenge films. Bad sound, bad editing, bad acting, etc. This movie is really distasteful. I cannot stress that enough. A God-fearing woman (who is a virgin) happens in to a thrift store and finds a ventriloquists dummy. The shopkeeper tells the woman that every time she sells the 'doll', it always finds its way back to the shop. The doll is supposed to fulfill your most heartfelt desire. The woman buys…
How could they have gone wrong with this?! A fun opening song that even at 6 mins still doesn't wear out its welcome. A jive talking tranquilivist doll with rapey tendencies and a piece of bacon for a tounge. But disappointingly it wasn't enough to save this movie from its excruciatingly frustrating pace that just brings on chronic fatigue.
I wasn't crazy about the movie, it started out okay but then became really repetitive, I mean, how much puppet/human sex can a viewer withstand?
I found renaissance man Chester Novell Turner's film most enjoyable when it came to his music for Black Devil Doll from Hell. Like, as in, I'm pretty sure I kept watching it because I didn't want to stop listening to the music?
Chester Novell Turner: Art Brut provocateur. A correspondence course filmmaker with a penchant for confrontational low-fi aesthetics, Turner pitches Black Devil Doll From Hell somewhere between gonzo-sleazoid horror farce and absurdist psychosexual parable. It's a balls-out assault on good taste, a ribald Tale of Temptation where one woman's repressed primal desires (personified and/or unleashed by the rapacious devil doll, of course) rise to the surface and expose the inefficacy of Christian dogma. I'd draw comparisons to The Book of Genesis, if the "Good Book" ever featured a Rastafarian sex puppet luring the pious Christian flock down a self-destructive path of carnal desire (all while out-Kruegering Freddy Krueger with its gratuitous use of the word "bitch").

Gonna need a shower after watching this one.
Black Devil Doll screams style - completely raw and cheap, it occasionally manages to hit notes of true malevolence. Its notoriety in certain circles is well-earned.
This is a key SOV flick, illustrating a significant part of the appeal of the restricted format. Though inevitably less technically accomplished, certain breeds of horror become worse when they're the works of a determined few, rather than a large, funded team. Getting your friends together to make a goofy slasher is one thing. Getting them to cooperate with you making a film where the major theme is the discovery of sexuality that can only be satisfied by possessed doll rape is another.
And they call it puppet love.
Where does one even start with this? There should be a seperate bill in the Geneva Convetion that prevents this being shown to anyone. Its painful in so many ways, the sloooooowwwwww non acting, the nails down a blackboard "music" and the most non sexy sex and nudity ever put before a vhs camera. Truly the worst "movie" ever made, worse even than "Mission Impossible 2" and that takes some beating. Seriously.
Very fresh beats. I was expecting Tommy Wright III to start rapping at any moment.
"I've been with many men. Several to be exact."
A shot on video film about a woman who falls in love with the puppet that raped her. The soundtrack sounds like the start of those emergency broadcast notifications but I'm glad Chester Novell Turner gave us plenty of time to dance to it. Way too long and repetitive. It has some fun lines to laugh at but not much else to offer.
The poster poses the question, "Was it a nightmare?"
Yes. It was.
I've seen worse movies about dolls that come to life.
that was one weird puppet porno
Hooptober entry number six!
"These are the only eyes that will see me nekkid. . . until I get married."
SOV transmitted nightmare from a damaged brain about a church mouse undone by her carnal lust for a toddler-sized puppet. Instead of a low rent Child's Play or backyard Twilight Zone shocker, Black Devil Doll From Hell plays more like The Awakening starring a crusty Treasure City tchotchke. The SOV element makes the whole movie feel real and filth slathered and forbidden like some weird long lost puppet sex tape a lonely nana hid under her bed. I wanted to take a shower after the awful greasy demonic black magick puppet extended a long mucus white tongue! GROSS.
