The Profane Exhibit is a film which I am eagerly awaiting. An anthology of extreme horror, The Profane Exhibit marks Ruggero Deodato's (Cannibal Holocaust) first directorial project in almost a decade. We are one short closer to release, as Marian Dora's (Zombie Nation, Cannibal) segment, "Mors in Tabula" wraps. Sneak a peek with this still:
In "Mors in Tabula," a middle-aged woman suffering from incurable cancer is offered an operation that could be her "last chance." But the surgeon has only his own desires in mind...
Other directors signed on to The Profane Exhibit include Michael Todd Schneider (August Underground's Mordum), Andrey Iskanov (Philosophy of a Knife, Visions of Suffering), Ryan Nicholson (Famine, Grave Encounters 2), special effects makeup artist Sergio Stivaletti (Cemetary Man, The Stendhal Syndrome), Coffin Joe (Awakening of the Beast, A Capital dos Mortos), Richard Stanley (Hardware, The Theatre Bizarre), Yoshihiro Nishimura (Dead Sushi, The ABCs of Death), Uwe Boll (Bloodrayne, In the Name of the King), and Nacho Vigalondo (Timecrimes, The ABCs of Death).
The official synopsis:
"Deep within the underbelly of Paris, there is a club which is the home of a secret, wicked society. At first it resembles an ordinary fetish or goth nightclub, but hidden within the cavernous building are many hidden rooms. One of which is known as “The Room of Souls,” a private gathering place of the world’s richest and most evil people. Their host is the elegant yet frightening Madame Sabatier. For their amusement, each member takes a turn and spins a true tale of their depravity: A good wife learns that her husband goes out at night to abduct and murder young women; A botched suicide attempt leads to a drug induced dream; A girl is believed to be possessed by a demon and her overly religious parents enlist the help of a corrupt reverend who has his own sinister plans; We are invited inside the deranged mind of a respected surgeon as he takes us on a guided tour of life, death, and everything in between; A young street prostitute crosses paths with a charismatic flesh trader and is forced to take an unspeakable journey of sex, violence, and murder; A nun is abducted off the streets of Rome and held captive for over a year turning her into a feral, murderous creature to be unleashed on society; A chance encounter on a fateful bus ride for an unsuspecting girl who dreams of riches and fame is her undoing; A man picks up a woman in a nightclub and soon finds himself at the mercy of a cult of women who believe consumption of their sacrifice will bring them to their highest form of female dominance; An unflinching look into darkest Africa where human life is traded for fortune and the most unspeakable atrocities are committed. It truly is a profane world, and this is THE PROFANE EXHIBIT. There are no boundaries."
