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.

Musical Hell: The Fearless Four

 Happy 2022, everyone! We're starting off the year with a bad German movie about a boring German fairy tale.


Also, check out how you can join me for some musical fun at sea next year! (COVID should be mostly done by then. I think.)
