Filmed in Negroscope and featuring “totally awesome scenes of rape and murder,” BLACK DEVIL DOLL is the #1 HARD FEELINGS film of 2009.

Straight off its U.S. theatrical tour and successful exhibition at Cannes, the Lewis Brothers film is now a paperback novel by Stephen Romano, author of SHOCK FESTIVAL and THE RIOT ACT.

Romano also designed the eye-popping BLACK DEVIL DOLL poster art and other promotional graphics for producer Shawn Lewis of Rotten Cotton. The book is available now in advance of the October DVD release.

Here’s my review of the flick:

RATED X BY AN ALL-WHITE JURY

The Lewis Brothers start a riot in “Black Devil Doll”

By David A. Szulkin

The production cost of BLACK DEVIL DOLL breaks down to one puppet, five reasonably priced nude females, one hundred jugs of Karo syrup, miscellaneous pharmaceuticals, and $10,000 in Oakland Fried Chicken. The results pay off like a Powerball jackpot.

BLACK DEVIL DOLL is the first film from The Lewis Brothers, the boldest young filmmakers to emerge from the horror genre since Frank Henenlotter and Stuart Gordon. Some film nerds have pegged the movie as a remake of Chester Turner’s 1984 straight-to-video feature BLACK DEVIL DOLL FROM HELL, but the new movie shares only the most obvious surface elements with Turner’s flick.

“It’s our homage to all of the killer doll films,” says producer Shawn Lewis. “We watched a lot of those movies, and none of them went all the way, so we decided to make the movie we always wanted to see. Actually, we didn’t make the puppet black until we wrote the fourth draft of the screenplay.”

The movie opens with black militant Mubia Abul-Jama (Jonathan Lewis) marching down Death Row to be executed for his crimes against Caucasian society. Just as Jama rides the lightning, bored and busty Heather (Heather Murphy) unwittingly transports his soul into the body of a ventriloquist’s dummy during a Ouija board séance.

Mubia demonstrates the power of his miniature pimp hand and other appendages in a triple-X rated puppet romance montage. But this muthafuckin’ puppet needs some strange. Some trim. Some fresh. white pussy. While Mubia commands Heather to round up her bimbo girlfriends, her jilted wannabe rapper boyfriend White-T (Martin Boone) seeks revenge.

What follows is a relentless, abusive, and uproarious onslaught of rape, misogyny, mutilation, mayonnaise, mass murder, sodomy, toilet humor and racially charged puppet hijinks. The movie’s many freak-out sequences were filmed in Negroscope, a patented process which visualizes the puppet’s psychosis in a multi-layered, psychedelic blur of Black History Month flashbacks.

From the puppet’s first demonic eyeball-roll to the mind-melting, sphincter-shattering climax, BLACK DEVIL DOLL delivers the total package to your door…and says “FUCK YOU!” when you sign for it. Eruptions of H.G. Lewis-style gore, Russ Meyer-like breasts, graphic necrophilia, salad-tossing, and the funniest prison-rape joke in recent memory are just a few highlights; the actors rightly allow the wooden doll to upstage them, and the original soundtrack by Giallo’s Flame completes the atmosphere.

It’s no surprise that BLACK DEVIL DOLL has pissed off politically correct crackers and uptight Uncle Toms alike.

The film’s trailer alone was enough to offend a Tampa film critic, who wrote, “I hope my subconscious mind creates a split personality to deal with this, because I don’t want to have that stuff in my head for the rest of my life.”

Another advance review labeled director Lewis “a self-hating Negro,” while KING magazine called the film “heartless” and “foul”.

None other than the Rev. Al Sharpton weighed in with a personal condemnation when a fan pressed him for comment.

“It’s a shame individuals in our society have regressed to such standards of racial lambasting in favor of the lowest common denominator of entertainment for the mass public,” Sharpton said.

The Lewis Brothers responded by naming their production company Lowest Common Denominator Entertainment.

During the film’s world premiere at L.A.’s New Beverly Cinema, emcee Uncle Creepy hurled oversized black dildos into the sold-out crowd while director Jonathan Lewis smiled serenely. The audience went wild.

More Florida controversy soon spread as St. Petersburg Times film critic Steve Persall protested the exhibition of BLACK DEVIL DOLL, lambasting the film, and attacking its shameless creators in a morally outraged column. Persall had not seen the movie.

The Lewis Brothers had the last laugh. The mighty fist of the Black Devil Doll raised a triumphant middle finger of defiance at Cannes, as the film met with enthusiastic response and sold to foreign territories where the mack-daddy puppet’s every obscene utterance will be dubbed into several languages for the enjoyment of audiences around the world.

Soul on ice? The Black Devil Doll is on fire! Long may his magic chocolate wand wave, and deep may he thrust into your honky soul.

  1. Are you fucking kidding me? I saw this piece of shit at your expressed recommendation and the disappointment lingers like a fart in a car. A bunch of lame and unfunny jokes punctuating another softcore porn movie with a puppet in the place of Voodoo and Evan Stone. It saddens me deeply that in a year riddled with good movies like Antichrist, Life Is Hot In Cracktown, World’s Greatest Dad, Precious, Trash Humpers, Bad Biology, Hurt Locker, Paranormal Activity, Kinatay, and Enter The Void…this is your choice for best movie of the year? That is just plain sad.

    • Consider my credibility lowered to the lowest common demoninator, big_puss@hotmail.com but I just saw it with an audience for the third time and laughed again. I like some of the other films on yur list and am especially excited to see Bad Biology which hasn’t reached the States yet (?) – but the spirit behind Black Devill Doll cannot be denied.

  2. The SPIRIT of Black Devil Doll can not be denied???!!

    Who are you, the skinnier and better-looking Sal Alpino? The spirit of BLACK DEVIL DOLL is a last-ditch attempt to suck dollars out of a fading contingent of jaded thrill-freaks desperate to get where the action is. So many people are desperate for the new all-stops-out cult movie that they’ll just fabricate it out of thin air. Three words for ya, fella – BRIDE OF FRANK.

    After re-reading your review, I’m curious…what exactly did you LIKE about the movie? Is there anything GOOD about it? Is the script funny? Do the special effects really affect? Are the big fake bags of saline extra-special?

    You laughed in the theater. Homeboy, I saw World’s Greatest Dad every day of it’s one-week run and continued to laugh like a hyena when Daryl Sabara gets into it with Robin Williams about how heavy metal is “the gayest of all the gay music.”

    As for BAD BIOLOGY, you’re in luck. My boy Victor B. at Media Blasters acquired it for US distribution. Buckle your safety belt and strap yourself tight, it’s a keeper.

    Your pal.

    – Lance

  3. Your criticism is tantamount to saying, “In a year that produced new LPs by Rod Stewart and Yes, how could you choose this shitty punk rock record as your favorite?” Answer: attitude. Yes, I thought BDD was hilarious. I’ve never seen BRIDE OF FRANK (?) or WORLD’S GREATEST DAD. Looking forward to BAD BIOLOGY. BDD reminds me very much of BASKET CASE.

  4. Black Devil Doll reminds me of a really bad Troma movie. Forced humor, scatology replacing wit, and skanky-looking women (Seriously, dude…is Natasha Talonz related to Wendy O. Williams?) all thrown together in a Mulligan’s Stew of Suck. The only semi-good thing about the movie is the R&B montage, mainly because that song was pretty good.

    The HARD FEELINGS embrace of BLACK DEVIL DOLL is not only a personal problem, but the problem with “underground fandom” in general. Look around – there’s a whole bunch of good shit coming out and you (along with your peers) are too busy laughing at an hour-long puppet porn to even pay attention to a film like WORLD’S GREATEST DAD or ANTICHRIST, which both pack some food for thought and genuine human insight along with their shocks and giggles. Ignorance is not bliss, my young friend.

    As for your Rod Stewart/Yes analogy…if Rod Stewart or Yes had produced LPs that wiped the floor with The Dayglo Abortions’ FEED US A FETUS, then that’s just the facts of life. At the end of the god damn day, quality is what has to come first. Attitude is for poseurs.

    To quote Iggy Pop, “When you live in Butt Town, values are thrown down.”

    Your pal,

    Lance

  5. Dayglo Abortions – “Acting Like Black Sabbath” = genius.

    I was thinking of ANTICHRIST as “Tales from Topographic Oceans” and Rod Stewart for CRACKTOWN (a big letdown, esp. compared to the book.) Making a “personal problem” out of a movie (or a movie review) is never a good idea, my young friend.

  6. Cracktown is pretty far from a letdown, bro-ham. Great acting, a searing script, and Buddy’s capable direction all added up to a wonderful moviegoing experience. Watch it with someone you love, and your opinion of that movie will change considerably. To quote the Kinky Librarian, “it’s like everything you ever wanted to hear from a guy.” Call me sentimental, but that’s the difference between an artist like Buddy Giovinazzo and two suburban schmucks from Antioch making nigger jokes with a camcorder and lifting gags from South Park and Tucker Max books.

    Never in a million years would I ever think of a comparison between an incendiary, transgressive masterwork like Antichrist and a Yes album. Pat yourself on the back, Buckaroo. By the way, are you going to see Precious this weekend?

    Your pal,

    Lance

  7. CRACKTOWN was a TV movie compared to Buddy’s book. The version I saw theatrically was cut down, too. I watched it with someone I love, who also loves the book & thought the movie weak. By comparing von Trier to prog-rock I was referring to the impenetrable pseudo-intellectual qualities of each. Weighing the relative merits of ANTICHRIST vs BLACK DEVIL DOLL is more apples/oranges than anything else; one is serious arthouse critics’ fare, the other is a gorehound low-budget comedy.

    I see BLACK DEVIL DOLL as a very funny and entertaining expression of the gorehound gestalt dating back to the days of Rick Sullivan (GORE GAZETTE) and Chas. Balun (DEEP RED). Rotten Cotton and the Lewis Brothers are definitely part of that tradition, and I felt they succeeded strongly in what they set out to do.

    Your hostility toward BLACK DEVIL DOLL and snobbish sensibility about my review are misplaced – and the need to be “right” on this issue is odd. There is no wrong or right here. I find it funny, you don’t. Zzzzzz….

  8. The difference here is that Antichrist is meant for adults (have you bothered to see it yet?) and Black Devil Doll is stunted-adolescent fare for the special education crowd…you know, the sad sacks who still find doody jokes funny. I guess the extended plug for Rotten Cotton Graphics stuck in my craw a bit, as did the blue veins on all the “actresses” breasts. A little time in the sun next go-round, ladies? Ditto the “dried sperm on the lens” Photoshop effect on the video and the weak mini-Mooged soundtrack.

    The thing is…you have still failed to explain to me what exactly is good about this movie. The above review reads like some Sal Alpino puff piece, and you’re a lot better than that. Come on, bro…set me straight.

    Your pal,

    Lance

  9. So because you disagree with my opinions, my review is a “puff piece”? I stand by my review. Sorry you didn’t get the joy from this movie that I do.

  10. One thing puzzles me, young man.

    What is it about the CRACKTOWN movie that makes it “weak” compared to the novel? Is it because you felt the movie lacked the heart and soul of the book or is it because Brazil’s cure for “Coma-ism” and little Londa having her nipples torn off with a screwdriver didn’t make the final cut? If it’s the former, I think you’re overdue for a rewatch. Didn’t the opening scene quench your appetite for young girls getting degraded? If not, I guess BLACK DEVIL DOLL really is the movie for you.

    If I can give the product you’re shilling for any credit, it’s that BDD is the only film that makes breasts (something I love) look disgusting. Somebody fire that DP before he shoots again! I know, the question lingers – how do you make big luscious boobs look disgusting? By using flat kitchen lighting that accentuates the stretched veins and hideous implant jobs (and people complained about Tara Reid’s operation…) and turns those joyous melons into fleshy cancer craters.

    I bet you really loved Splatter Farm, too.

    Your bud,

    Lance Dance

  11. “Young Man”? Sorry Lance, I don’t care to dance.

  12. You know, son…I just found one more semi-funny thing about BLACK DEVIL DOLL. Mrs. Dance was all about seeing this thing (she even has a mini-poster at her cubicle at work) and wouldn’t you know it…I had to sit through BDD again. Up on the wall in that girl’s place, right behind the skanky one with melanoma (take your pick), there hung a framed copy of the “Rape Issue” of Jim Goad’s ANSWER ME! fanzine.

    This truly would not have been as funny as it was to us if our last meeting with Jim Goad was not so memorable. Call for details.

    BAD BIOLOGY is not all that hard to find, boy. Just call one of your friends, I’m sure he or she has an import copy they’re willing to make a PAL-to-NTSC region-free conversion for you. Considering that you’re such a charming guy and everything, they might even do it for free.

    Your buddy,

    Lance Pants Dance

  13. Wow those review here were good reads but I have found out that most of the people that have been giving this movie good reviews are not all but some connected to Shawn and crew in some ways so of course they will give great reviews…thats sad! heres mine Ive been posting.

    I finally got the movie, and I’ll I can say is this movie really blows and not in the good way. Mubia looked great, SPFX were cool well just when he turned into the puppet! The acting was bad, I believe they were not acting bad, they were just bad you can tell! Lost of big boobs, but all fake ones and that you can see online for free! The girls just were not hot at all except P.Cox she should have been the star! Rent this movie first before you buy it, and if you don’t believe me look at REAL reviews on amazon.com wish I did.

    • Sorry to hear you didn’t dig the Devil Doll, dude. I have no connection to Shawn other than enjoying his movie. Why would you want or expect “good acting” in a movie about a killer black militant puppet who rapes and mutilates white women? Regardless, I feel White-T, Mubia, and each of Heather’s breasts should receive Oscars. BTW, the most-searched term on this blog is “Heather Murphy nude”. I’ve seen BDD three times with an audience and each time the reaction was overwhelmingly positive. I recommend watching it with friends (for example, Johnny Walker and his brother Jimmy Beam.)

  14. The only thing funnier than listening to some blow-hard like Lance knock a movie like “Black Devil Doll” IS “Black Devil Doll”. Hard Feelings could not be more spot-on in his review of the movie; it was a glorious slice of funny lowbrow trash. Nothing more, nothing less. You either find it entertaining or you don’t. But to try and endlessly argue why someone should not like it only paints you to be the retard that you so obviously are. Move along, Lance. As entertaining as your first couple posts were to read and laugh at, now you’ve just become boring and tedious….much like “Antichrist”.

  15. Giddyup, Rockin’ Ronnie!

    The only connection that Mr. Hard Feelings has to Shawn and his crew was the 20-spot that hit his pocket after posting this same spiel ALL OVER THE FUCKING INTERNET. At least Chas. Balun had the stones to admit in DEEP RED 4 that all of the praise he had heaped upon FRIDAY THE 13th: THE NEW BLOOD was a bunch of mularkey. Now it burdens me deeply that Mr. AA is advocating that this piece of crap is best viewed under the influence of hard liquor…which really says everything about the quality of said product.

    The point is simple, Ron…and I’m going to be moving in a circular motion, so follow me because there will be a point at the end. I was not taking umbrage at Mr. “Hard Feelings” and his opinion of the movie. It was more about the fact that our author here could not find a single redeeming quality other than “attitude.” Now, if all that made a movie good was this ever-elusive “attitude,” then Nick Zedd would be winning Oscars every year. It’s not, and he doesn’t.

    Since you had to bring up ANTICHRIST and refer to it as “boring and tedious,” may I just recommend that you no longer watch movies only based on the wicked-cool gore shit you heard about from your message board buddies. Grow a penis, pay your own bills, and wear clothes that come from companies other than Rotten Cotton. That’s your exercise for today, buddy. The Doctor Adjourns.

    Your bud,

    Lance Renaissance

  16. Sorry, the Doctor had to come back for a brief anecdote.

    This Spring, Mr. and Mrs. Lance had the displeasure of working with dreadlocked pussy-boy and genuine no-talent Rob Zombie on his career-defining masterpiece of bullshit, HALLOWEEN 2. At the premiere of said film, I channelled my inner Black Devil Doll and cursed Rob Zombie to a career serving children’s lunches at an elementary school for making such a terrible film. The reason I am saying this is because Rob Zombie’s benefactors paid us a good bit more than Mr. “Hard” is receiving for his shill efforts on this piece of shit and I can safely say that HALLOWEEN 2 is nearly as bad as BLACK DEVIL DOLL…maybe even worse. Speaking of which, Hard Feelings – did you really feel so compelled by the genius of this film to register with both the IMDB and Amazon.com to counteract the more honest (read: negative) reviews?

    To paraphrase your Amazon review…in this case, the honkies are right. My boy “The New Swayze” wants you to know that Black Devil Doll is the white teenager’s dictionary of soul.

    Your friend 4-EVAH,

    Lance Pants

  17. “Lance” : First, your claim that I was paid off to write this review is false and insulting. To answer your question: Yes, I posted on Amazon (not IMDB, though) – why? Because I love the movie. Calling me a shill because I don’t agree with you shows that you can’t even accept the notion of differing opinions.

    You also claim I failed to point out what I liked about Black Devil Doll. Here is what I wrote in case you missed it:

    “Eruptions of H.G. Lewis-style gore, Russ Meyer-like breasts, graphic necrophilia, salad-tossing, and the funniest prison-rape joke in recent memory are just a few highlights; the actors rightly allow the wooden doll to upstage them, and the original soundtrack by Giallo’s Flame completes the atmosphere.”

    Your elitist harping on “immature” toilet humor and mindlessly offensive entertainment rings is strange coming from someone (you) who appreciates the Meatmen, G.G., Nig-Heist, Mentors, et. al. While your writing shows that you are a bright guy, you come off here as a condescending pedant with a grudge against the makers of this film and me personally.

    Yes, I am proudly sober. (Not that it’s your place to call me on it publicly.) Since when does my sobriety prohibit me from making reference to alcohol (and George Thorogood)?

    It’s interesting that many of the glowing reviews of BDD came from people who saw it in theaters, while the bad reviews come from those who watched it on DVD. Since it received such high praise in advance of the home video release, I’m not surprised at the backlash. So, yeah, I think a theatrical screening with a raucous, intoxicated crowd is the ideal way to view BDD.

    Once again, I will waste my time by telling you that there is no “right” or “wrong” here — only a movie about a jive-talking killer puppet. Some love it, some hate it. I ask only that you keep your personal attacks, false innuendoes, professional slurs, and pestering comments off my website. Thanks.

    DS

  18. No IMDB? Try explaining this:

    Rated X by and all white jury!, 24 May 2009

    Author: hellbillyrebel from United States

    *** This comment may contain spoilers ***

    The production cost of BLACK DEVIL DOLL breaks down to one puppet, five reasonably priced nude females, one hundred jugs of Karo syrup, miscellaneous pharmaceuticals, and $10,000 in Oakland Fried Chicken. The results pay off like a multi-million-dollar lottery.

    The movie opens with black militant Mubia Abul-Jama (Jonathan Lewis) marching down Death Row to be executed for his crimes against Caucasian society. Just as Jama rides the lightning, the bored and busty Heather (Heather Murphy) unwittingly transports his soul into the body of a ventriloquist’s dummy during a desultory Ouija board séance.

    Mubia wastes no time demonstrating his miniature pimp hand. Naturally, Heather falls in love; the busty beauty dumps her wannabe rapper boyfriend White-T and submits to the doll’s sexual hunger. Roll the puppet romance montage.

    But this puppet needs some strange. Some trim. Some fresh white tail. While White-T weeps in Wigger angst, Mubia commands Heather to round up her bimbo girlfriends.

    What follows is a relentless, abusive, and uproarious onslaught of rape, misogyny, mutilation, mayonnaise, mass murder, sodomy, toilet humor and racially charged puppet high-jinks. The movie’s many freak-out sequences were filmed in Negroscope, a patented process which visualizes the puppet’s psychosis in a multi-layered, psychedelic blur of Black History Month flashbacks.

    From the puppet’s first demonic eyeball-roll to the mind-melting, sphincter-shattering climax, BLACK DEVIL DOLL delivers the total package to your door…and says “F**K YOU!” when you sign for it. Eruptions of H.G. Lewis-style gore, Russ Meyer-like breasts, graphic necrophilia, salad-tossing, and the funniest prison-rape joke in recent memory are just a few highlights; the actors rightly allow the wooden doll to upstage them, and the original soundtrack by Giallo’s Flame completes the atmosphere.

    During the film’s world premiere at L.A.’s New Beverly Cinema, an emcee hurled over-sized black dildos into the sold-out crowd while director Jonathan Lewis smiled serenely. The audience went wild.

    Eldridge Cleaver is still on ice, but the Black Devil Doll is on fire. Long may his magic chocolate wand wave, and deep may he thrust into your honky soul!

  19. L – The explanation is simple: I sent my review to the filmmakewrs and they posted it. I registered with IMDB a few years ago but I’ve never posted any reviews. My user name is “Harry Kerwin”.

  20. Read this last statement, and then track up to some of your prior missives. You have negated yourself right here.

    Your friend 4-EVAH,

    Lance Eluction

  21. I have no idea what you’re talking about, “Lance” – I find no contradiction in any of these posts, and it’s a waste of my time even thinking about this.

    You’ve come here to attack, provoke, and insult me over a movie about a puppet. You have called me a shill, etc., and there you are mistaken.

    I was not paid by anybody to review BDD, and I was very clear about the things I like about the movie. I don’t see the point of continuing this pointless “debate”, so if you want to “win” then let me be the first to congratulate you: You’re a real winner.

  22. I’m talking about the claim of “I have no connection to Shawn & crew.” It’s glaringly obvious that your statement rings false. I call you a shill because it’s simply the truth – and if that doesn’t feel good, remember that the truth hurts. I say this because you personally are far better than that. You’re a sharp cookie, dude…do you really want to be tied in to another failed hype brigade a la Nick Palumbo and his Murder-Set-Pieces? Call me an elitist all you want, because you’re damn right. The scene we’re both in is in dire need of a wake-up call, and dudes like you and me are the guys to give it to them.

    Of course I enjoy lowbrow entertainment. Remember how much you laughed when I hooked you up with a copy of Norbit? There’s a difference, though…and that difference is talent. It takes skill to make toilet humor funny. Andrew “Dice” Clay can do it. Sam Kinison could definitely do it. Bob Saget can’t do it.

    Again, I remain…your friend 4-EVAH,

    Lance

  23. Nice try, Lance, but again, you’re misinformed. I’m no shill. When I saw BDD, I had never met Shawn or anyone else involved. I simply thought the movie was hysterical and admired the exploitation sensibility at play.

    For the record, my girlfriend was laughing all the way through the movie, too, at everything from the MPAA cartoon to the shots of Mubia’s little militant puppet boots scampering around to the over-the-top kill scenes and the fluid-soaked finale.

    All of your rhetorical posturing about “the scene” means nothing to me. Playing the Passionate Cineaste and bemoaning the lack of attention to art-house fare in the “horror community” sounds like a humorless soapbox diatribe to me.

    I’m happy to support the Lewis Brothers and “Black Devil Doll”, like many other reviewers who dug the movie. You seem obsessed with disparaging me for this. I really don’t care; I just object to the insinuations about “shilling”.

    In fact, I opted NOT to review a recent horror feature made by a friend of mine because I thought it was terrible. Nice guy, bad movie. I could have sold a magazine article around that film. But again, I don’t shill. I WILL hype the hell out of something I love – and that’s why I started this blog.

    I wrote the BLACK DEVIL DOLL review because I loved what I saw and wanted to get the word out to others who might enjoy it. If you don’t, there are plenty of other films, books, and websites out there. Dig?

    Now let’s all just listen to some Nig-Heist.

    DS

  24. “My ambition is in between my legs. My motivation is in between hers.”

    That’s a good suggestion, and you defend yourself admirably. What is one to say…given the initial bursts of good press from the likes of Steve Romano, Uncle Creepy, and professional shill Chris Mayo, it would be easy to lump you in the same category. Given that and the length that we’ve known each other (What’s it been, 5…6 years now?), you know what I think and you know my tastes.

    I wouldn’t call it soapbox preaching, dude. You’ve got all of these dweebs bemoaning the lack of good movies and the death of the horror film, but they’re so busy looking backwards for a new trend to hop on to even catch a glimpse of the very good work that’s been coming out lately. Call it “art-house fare” or whatever, but that’s where the real action is coming from in this day and age. For example, take a good look at the message boards – these people go on all day about remakes and reissues, but ignore the good new stuff. So I didn’t like Black Devil Doll…at all. That’s life. You did, I can accept that…but did you even bother checking out Antichrist before comparing it to a Yes album?

    That said, let’s drop the issue and shake hands on this one. Siskel didn’t always see eye to eye with Ebert, either. I still have your address around here, I think you need a dose of World’s Greatest Dad.

    – DA

  25. just wondering if this is such a great movie…how come none of the stars really promote this movie on their sites aka myspace or facebook etc, if they do theres very very little of it or not at all.

  26. Black Devil Doll was entertaining in so far as fake tits are great in my book and it was entertaining for a neo-Grindhouse movie.

    David,
    Enjoyed your “Last House on the Left” panel at the Fango convention. The script sounded crazier than the film which is saying something.

    Lance,
    People have passion for certain films, and you need to understand this simple fact. The whole shill concept is an easy, bitter accusation to try to drown out genuine enthusiasm. Glad you enjoy reading the reviews on Severed, though.

  27. Hi Sal!

    Enthusiasm is one thing. Shilling is another. Severed Cinema is nothing but a shill site for lame-fuck movies a la Murder-Set-Pieces and Black Devil Doll.

    Employing Sal Alpino as a writer = The “Shill” Brand forever remains.

    Now quit trying to add David Szulkin to your Horror Movie Guy Pokemon Collection. You’re not gonna get a free copy of CAT IN THE BRAIN out of this.

    – Lance Dance
