Directed by Cliff Roquemore • 1977 • United States
Starring Rudy Ray Moore, Sy Richardson, Jimmy Lynch
The great Rudy Ray Moore created a worthy successor to his iconic Dolemite with this uproariously inappropriate horror comedy. He stars as Petey Wheatstraw, a nightclub stand-up and born player who, murdered at the peak of his comedic fame, makes a slick deal with the Devil in order to get revenge on his killers: he will marry Satan’s notoriously unattractive daughter in exchange for resurrection. But when Petey goes back on his word, he finds himself on the run from the Devil’s henchmen.
