Bloodsucking Freaks woof! The Incredible Torture Show; The House of the Screaming Virgins 1975 (R)

Virtually plotless Troma gagfest full of torture, cannibalistic dwarfs, and similar debaucheries, all played out on a Soho Grand Guignol stage (horror shows that allegedly contained real torture and death). Features “The Caged Sexoids,” if that tells you anything (a cage of naked cannibal women tended by a dwarf). Not to mention the woman who has her brain sucked out through a straw. Filmed in “Ghoulovision” and originally rated X. Intolerable for most. 89m/C VHS, DVD . Seamus O'Brian, Niles McMas-ter, Viju Krem, Alan Dellay, Dan Fauci; D: Joel M. Reed; W: Joel M. Reed; C: Gerry Toll; M: Michael Sahl.
