My (water downed) Review for Black Devil Doll
Horror Movie Central | Peru Illinois | 12/18/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Plot: A black civil rights activist/serial killer named Mubia Abul-Jama, played by director Jonathan Lewis, is put to death in San Quentin Prison. When a dumb white girl named Heather fools around with a Ouija board, Abul-Jama's spirit takes over her white dummy and it is tranformed into a black doll with an afro and everything. He also still keeps up his old habits of gratuitous sex and murder.
My Thoughts: This film rocked. The movie starts off great with some animations that mentions how the film was rated X by an all white jury. The animations were all funny as hell and served their pupose. While all the jokes involved race, poop, or sex, they were still funny. In fact, the whole movie was funny. Everything from the shameless rotten cotton advertisment to the jealous ex-boyfriend White-T to the fact that the Black Devil Doll imagines the civil rights movement everytime he has an orgasm made me laugh.
From all the reviews I've read about the film, most people complained about how the females can't act. This personally didn't bother me at all since this was a horror/comedy. I thought it made the girl's lines even funnier since they were emphasizing certain parts of their sentences. It was obvious that the chicks weren't casted for their acting, but rather for their big breasts and good looks. I won't complain.
All of that plus a badass soundtrack and great editing made this a cult classic for years to come. I definently recommend atleast a few viewings of this film before you die.
Infernal Dreams Reviews BDD - Cult-A-Licious!

"Review by David Rupp - [...]
Black Devil Doll is another one of those movies I underestimated, and was bitch slapped back to reality by the amount of work that went into this fun flick. Let me just start out by saying the production values are very good, it looks and feels as it should. One of the first things I noticed about BDD is the music, one thing that can kill the feel of a movie is a score that is forced or just doesn't fit. No such thing here, the original music by The Giallos Flame fits the bill, funky 70's riffs put you right into a classic blaxploitation feel mixed with tension building scales. Combine that with some great camera work, on spot editing and more boobs than you can shake your stick at and you have a really well put together independent project.
You will undoubtedly find yourself in more than one instance where you may feel nauseated or offended. Unless you have a real sense of humor! Looking past that there are some good effects, great one liners. The acting is on the upside of indy casting, they at least aren't obviously reading a prompt, Heather Murphy does bring it to the table. The only thing I can really fault is the plot/storyline, it meanders at times and leaves much to the imagination as to motives & where it heads after Heather.
Over all I enjoyed Black Devil Doll, I recommend you at least check it out. It's a sick,funny movie with something for everyone. Make sure to keep watching the credits for the delivery fiasco and visit [...]. 8/10"
Power to the puppet!

"Since purchasing this DVD, I have watched the hilariously daring and viciously offensive low-budget blaxploitation-horror-comedy BLACK DEVIL DOLL about five times. I can easily say, without reservation, this is going to be my favorite straight-to-DVD indie film of the year. BLACK DEVIL DOLL is a new trash classic that will, I promise, become the ultimate party film and will not leave a dry seat in the house. A militant activist is put to death in the electric chair and then reincarnated in the body of a foul-mouthed 3-foot ventriloquist's doll--how can you not love that??? Mixing the darkest political humor of today's heated racial climate with scads of low-down, dirty puppet sex, director Jonathan Lewis has created a comedy masterpiece for those of us who still consider Rudy Ray Moore and Blowfly geniuses. See BLACK DEVIL DOLL by any means necessary!"
It's just wrong, in a good way!

"Black Devil Doll is one of the few movies to come out in recent years that can actually offend you, then make you laugh, then make you puke, then offend you again, then make you laugh, lather-rinse-repeat.
Shawn Lewis has created a cult classic in the purest sense of the phrase. This isn't a movie for everyone, but those that it's for can rejoice, it has everything we all scream for in an exploitation (blaxploitation) film.
Nudity? Check. Bad language? Check. Puppet poo? Check.
After years of hearing about Black Devil Doll, and all of the hype surrounding it, it's a rare film that actually exceeds the hype. You'll find yourself muttering "I can't believe they went THERE!".
The carwashing montage is definitely a highlight and is very well edited and constructed as well.
It's not very often that an exploitation film of this caliber actually has some artistic merit to it as well.
For the pervert, honky-jive a$$ turkey on your Christmas list, look no further than Black Devil Doll!!!"
