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.

Rhinestone: Musical Hell Review #53 by MusicalHell

There will be no Know the Score this month, in anticipation of Moana and Hairspray Live reviews in December.  Until then!

Musical Hell Review: Descendants

Happy Labor Day, everybody!  Which means that (at least in the United States) it's back-to-school time, or has been for the past several weeks.  So we're taking a look at Disney's severely irritating contribution to the "teenage children of famous characters" trend, Descendants!

Musical Hell Review: Thumbelina

Hey, can you believe I've been doing this web video review thing for fifty episodes?  Neither can I, which is probably why I didn't plan anything special for this one. (Sorry.)  Still, I hope you enjoy my look at a sample from the Don Bluth dark age, Thumbelina!
