Now on Blu-ray: Rudy Ray Moore's Petey Wheatstraw, The Devil's Son-in-Law

9 August 2016 7:00 PM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

Anyone who has ever been married knows that In-laws, even the kindest ones, are no joke. Now, just imagine if the father of your betrothed is the Devil himself. This is the predicament in which Rudy Ray Moore's Petey Wheatstraw found himself in Moore's follow-up to The Human Tornado, and the film proved to be a turning point in his career as a performer. Moore returned to the big screen two years after The Human Tornado with another one of his stage characters in Petey Wheatstraw.

While there is a whiff of social commentary in this low-budget spoof of the 2013 horror The Purge, only a comic performance from Bresha Webb provides any impact

“Daddy, they Purgin’!” So shouts Bresha Webb, whose comic performance in the ultra low-budget Meet the Blacks is so unpredictable and versatile it virtually makes up for the film’s many dull patches.
