Located on a small expansion shelf about midway between the Third and Fourth Circles, Musical Hell is presided over by Diva, a minor demon charged with passing judgement on the worst musicals ever committed to film. (She still hasn't figured out if this is their punishment or hers.) Take a seat on the bench and have your earplugs ready, because court is now in session.

New videos posted on the first Monday of the month. Other viewpoints, news, and general ramblings posted when they crop up.

At the Source: The RMS Titanic

 So a little over ten years ago I started this weird little project of mine reviewing a bad Titanic cartoon. And guess what? Today we're talking about the true story that has inspired several musicals of varying quality. Enjoy!

Musical Hell: Mulan II

 Hey everyone, guess who's more or less back on schedule! (For now.) Anyway, at the request of my Patreons I'm diving back into the morass of Disney direct-to-video sequels with Mulan II! CAUTION: Off-model animation ahead. Proceed with caution.

Muiscal Hell: Mr. Quilp

 I'm back, better late than never! Or not, as what I'm bringing with me is surely one of the most ill-suited subjects for a musical comedy. It's a delightful romp with Anthony Newley as the villainous Mr. Quilp!

 Hey everyone, I'm going to be going on vacation soon, but I haven't forgotten you. Here's a riff to tide you over. Enjoy!

Musical Hell: Music

 Remember last year when Sia released a movie that pissed off pretty much every autistic person you know? Yeah, I reviewed it. But these other people reviewed it as well, and you should hear what they have to say:

Sia's Movie Music: An Autistic's Opinion (Paige Layle): https://youtu.be/Oa2EF8z2OM0
Sia's movie is out...and it's worse than we thought (Chloe Hayden): https://youtu.be/31y9j5Zl300
Sia's Movie: Another Autistic's Response Because Y'all Won't Listen (tianasao): https://youtu.be/xMWdA-Xif7I

And if this movie pissed you off (I know it pissed me off) you might want to consider sending some spare change to the Autistic Self-Advocacy Network.  

Anyway...here it is. Music. You may think you're prepared...but I assure you, you are not.

Musical Hell Review: The Country Bears

 Disney keeps us rolling through March, with one of the weirder examples of "Hey, lets take something we own and squeeze more money out of it!" that they've brought forth, The Country Bears! (May contain one or more of the following: disturbing fursuits, gratuitous cameos, Christopher Walken)
