Little Deaths caused a sensation on the festival circuit with its frank mixture of sex and horror. Both titillating and disturbing, Little Deaths is an anthology film with segments by Simon Rumley (Red, White, and Blue), Sean Hogan (The Devil's Business), and Andrew Parkinson (Venus Drowning). You can now get the controversial flick on DVD starting December 13th - just in time for some holiday cheer. More details after the break.
From the official description:
In "House & Home," written and directed by Sean Hogan, the ultimate revenge fantasy gets a kinky upgrade. Affluent couple Richard and Victoria (Luke DeLacey and Suibhan Harrison) have a particularly debasing sexual foible. They pose as religious good Samaritans and lure less fortunate women to their luxurious home, only to abduct and assault them as part of their "entitlement" to the good life. But their latest capture, a homeless woman named "Sorrow" (Holly Lucas), just might show that they've bit off more than they can chew...
In Andrew Parkinson's "Mutant Tool," Jennifer (Jodie Jamieson) is a former prostitute and drug addict trying to get her life back on track, but living with her former pimp/drug dealing boyfriend Frank (Daniel Brocklebank) isn't helping matters. Jen's seeing a psychiatrist, who suddenly has Jen taking a new medication. While warned of potential side effects, Jen starts experiencing psychic connections and shocking visions of someone behind plastic curtains – bound, helmeted, dangling in the air and in a painful state of perpetual sexual arousal. As these hallucinations intensify, Jen comes to realize that she's part (with Frank's collaboration) of a terrifying experiment in manufacturing – and bottling – the ultimate sexual high.
Written and directed by Simon Rumley – the indie sensation behind Red, White and Blue -- "Bitch" details the sado-masochistic relationship between receptionist Claire (Kate Braithwaite) and her docile and obedient boyfriend Pete (Tom Sawyer). Ironically, while Claire literally treats Pete like a dog – going so far as occasionally leashing him and having him sleep in a doghouse – Claire also suffers from a pathological fear of canines. But when Claire's sexual games become more than he can bear, Pete puts in motion a series of events that will not only give Claire a taste of her own medicine, but add new meaning to "going to the dogs..."
