Exploitation, Blaxploitation, Sexploitation, Horror and Comedy… you get all that and more with Shawn and Jonathan Lewis’ Black Devil Doll. Head over to the Sunshine theatre tonight for a midnight screening of this modern cult classic. I also heard that they’re giving away posters, buttons, etc… free crap is always a plus.

Heather thought that a Ouija board was nothing but an innocent child’s game. Little did she know, this child’s game would open a flaming door to hell and re-animate the soul of a recently executed black militant serial killer! With his spirit now trapped in the body of a trash-talking ventriloquist doll, Heather and her friends must fight off the unrelenting horrors and unspeakable deviant advances of a three foot killer with a taste for young flesh and warm blood. Can they stop the Black Devil Doll?
I truly love this movie. You can quote me on this: Black Devil Doll is one of the best movies of the last decade period. True, this may not be for everyone, but it sure as hell was for me!

To me, Lloyd Kaufman will always be the second worst boss I’ve ever had. For two months in the fall of 2004 I was Lloyd Kaufman’s personal assistant. He goes through them like tissue paper. By Lloyd’s own admission “I’m a terrible boss to work for. I’m doing you a favor for firing you!”
Lloyd’s visit to the store for a midnight Blu Ray release of Poultry Geist: Night of the Chicken Dead scheduled for Monday the 22nd has me nostalgic for those wild days of yesteryear. The coolest thing about Troma, hands down? The office!
THIS is AMAZING! Drop by sometimes, they’re all pretty friendly, if not busy, and will let you peek-a-boo if you’re a fan! Movie props abound, as well as Troma memorabilia from the good times and the bad. Continue reading
