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.

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