I watched this.
I need a fucking shower.
A demented old bat with a slashed face runs boarding rooms in an abandoned playhouse with her cuddly toy obsessed dwarf-child. Little do the down on his luck writer and his wife who rent a room from them know that up in the attic is a torture room cum brothel that they keep kidnapped nudie women addicted to heroine in. The wife gets suspicious of all the men going in and out of the attic and the strange noises that emit from there, the husband does'nt notice cos he's too busy trying to get a job from various publishers. Unable to find writing work he resorts to a menial job at the local toy store run by a guy called Santa. It turns out that Santa is the local heroine supplier who keeps the Sinful Dwarf and his mother supplied with horse and toys. They need a new victim to force into prostitution as the ones they have are getting too out of it on all the smack, they see an opportunity when the writer is sent to France by Santa to bring back a shipment of "toys". His wife is
a pretty thing after all..............
I thought this was really boring for the most part, it is very Milliganesque. But the dwarf is a hoot and the sadistic scenes in the torture room are totally depraved. There's not enough of those scenes in it though, they are mostly saved until the end which is hugely entertaining. The rest of it is barely watchable, i got very bored watching the dwarf slowly going up the stairs step-by-step one at a time the first time he did it, but by the seventh time.....
And I really did'nt need the drunken show-tune renditions that his mother kept on giving to her gin-soaked friend.
All in all, i'd recommend it to fans of perv stuff like Wrong Way and the Big Snatch, it's that kinda film. Inept and outrageous.
