Black Devil Doll from Hell and Tales from the Quadead Zone Coming to DVD!

Frequent BoGD readers know that I don't often publish press releases, but this one is definitely one of the coolest news bits (and quite appropriate for this blog) I've recently been asked to post. That and Louis Justin, head of the freshly launched Massacre Video, is a big time tape collecting maven and all-around nice guy from my exchanges on Facebook. Justin was able to procure these extremely rare features, along with Wally Koz's 555 (1988), for release onto DVD. Original VHS copies of Black Devil Doll from Hell (not to be confused with 2008's Black Devil Doll) have been known to easily trip over the hundred buck mark at auction and Tales from the Quadead Zone is virtually impossible to find. I've never seen these, but have always wanted to and it looks like my chance is coming! 

Rotten Cotton and Massacre Video along with Box Office Spectaculars are proud to bring you, for the first time on DVD, the epic Black Devil Doll from Hell (1984), written and directed by the mysterious Chester N. Turner. It would not feel right to just release Black Devil Doll from Hell alone, so we added Turner’s rare second film, Tales from the Quadead Zone (1987). Helen Black is a deeply religious woman who purchases a ventriloquist dummy from a local antique shop. This is not your typical dummy. This dummy is a possessed sexual deviant that rapes and kills! Be sure to pick up this film for one of the oddest viewing experiences you will ever encounter.

I saw the news about this upcoming dvd release over on Cinehound forum half an hour ago and this is without a doubt the best piece of news since 1970!!! Alright-alright I'm exaggerating but it's cool indeed. I have never found the video tapes either but have got boot DVDs of both films (from TrueGore). There's a really fun review by Joeseph A. Ziemba on Bleeding Skull here:

Yep! That review is what REALLY got me interested!

Ziemba also reviews Quadead Zone: you dare tread upon the staircase?
