Black Devil Doll from Hell

Chester Novell Turner
USA 1984 / 88’

A sensual horror rooted in blaxploitation (during the film, we become aware of the presence of all of our senses that are being irritated by the production) that, rather against the filmmakers’ intentions, raises questions about the limits of decency in cinema. At its most basic level, it offers something to fans of art that goes beyond esthetic and moral standards. Just a glance at the story is enough. The main character in the film is a devout woman who gives up her faith because of the pleasant physical feelings she experiences with her doll. Chester Novell Turner convinces us that he is a fearless filmmaker. Despite the presence of religious subject matter, provocation was not the intention of Black Devil Doll from Hell. It is simply a wild film that should engender enthusiasm among audiences in love with midnight movies.
