Wrong Devil Doll

Hey Shawn! I owe you an apology. My write-up was totally wrong about The Black Devil Doll.
My Bad. My apologies also go out to the couple who came out last night and were upset that
there was a Muppet Movie on the screen. That was not my doing. I hope everything is OK.

Oh Boy, do we have a show for you tonight.
Apparently, our jive-ass nurse can't make it so
you're all on your own. What you will see tonight will make you shudder. You will surely be changed. Use Google to find the nearest house of worship cause your gonna need it after seeing what we have lined up for you. Some of it will be nasty. Some will be very strange. You may even see your parents in situations that you never imagined. Sorry, no Barbie dolls singing Carpenters songs, but there might be a devil doll.
For about 20 odd years we've shown the DC area some twisted stuff, tonight is no exception. In celebration of us getting to the BIG 20 we present to you tonight a smorgasbord of eye tickling delights.

Black Devil Doll

This poster is most misleading.
The movie itself is a just-has-to-be-seen-to-be-believed.
If you're day....we'll show you a clip from it.
That's if you're lucky. Do you feel lucky punk!?
How bout tomorrow night? Huh!

Lots of Gaffs and Laffs-Unborn and Undead

Miami Horror is perfect fodder for illogical humor.
Aliens. Hot-on-the-trail investigators. Mad German
scientists in Miami. Female human with powerful ESP that can communicate with aliens and humans. Throw all that together and you got yourself one humdinger of a movie. There is one scene in the movie that the director loved so much, he shows it to the unwilling audience TWICE. That my friend, I think is why the title of the movie serves its purpose: Miami Horror.
