    The Sinful Dwarf

    So yesterday afternoon we decided to watch The Sinful Dwarf. Alison had never seen this and that needed to be corrected and I hadn't watched it since Severin had first put it out so it was definitely time to revisit. One thing that really struck me about it this time around was just how awesome the soundtrack is on this movie. It really helps to scuzz out an already super scuzzy movie.

    On top of that the scenes where the mother, Lila Lash, and her drunken friend are just hanging out drinking Beefeater Gin and revisiting past glories of their night club days wearing dirty old costumes and looking all the world like a pair of drugged out fucked up hookers are somehow just as disturbing as the scenes where the dwarf is torturing the pretty female lead with his cane in her girly spot.

    A few other weird bits that kinda stood out for me:

    - the crooked needle on the syrine he uses to inject the heroin into the girls - the fact that it's crooked just makes something very wrong even more wrong

    - the use of kids' toys throughout the movie, showing the dwarf to be of stunted mental growth and making him childlike in a sense, which contrasts with his peeping tom activities and his penchant for cruelty towards his captives - weird!

    -the rythm of his footsteps - normally you'd hear a 1-2 pattern when someone is walking but since he uses the cane, it's a 1-2-3 step which for some reason wigged me out a little bit. I dunno why.

    -the place that they shot it in is just so gloriously filthy, you kinda feel like you need a shower just looking at it - and the fact that Peter and Mary make sweet, sweet love in that bed? Eww. That bed should have been burned.

    I'm very happy to have this on DVD. What a rad movie.
    Rock! Shock! Pop!

    It wasn't nearly as bad or disturbing as I thought it'd be. For some reason I had it in my mind that it'd be one of those movies that would really bother me. It wasn't, it was actually a lot of fun. The weirdest part in my opinion was when the mom sang. Just bizarre.

    Not a fan I'm guessing? Not even with the SWV VHS art leering at you?

    And then you would have been extremely sad to learn that when that young bride does find herself alone with that dwarf all he really does is sweat and chortle.

    Rename this movie THE IRRITATING LITTLE MAN.

    I still havent't watched this either. Is the SWV version the XXX one? I have the Severin non-XXX one.
