The World Needs More Dwarfsploit Films..., 7 May 2006
Author: EVOL666 from St. John's Abortion Clinic

THE SINFUL DWARF is another 70's era exploit/weirdy that really defies explanation. I will say that it's slow moving and doesn't really pick up til the end, but the whole concept is twisted enough to warrant a look at this one...

Olaf the dwarf (who another reviewer nailed it when he said that this freak looks like a psychotic version of a squished Jack Black...) and his mother run a boarding house. To supplement the minimal income that taking in boarders offers, they naturally lure young girls to the house with toy dogs, drug them with heroin until they are addicted, and whore them out to the local scumbags. When a couple moves in and the wife starts snooping around, everything goes to hell...

THE SINFUL DWARF isn't quite what I expected - as I stated before it's kinda slow and dull at points - but overall I'd say it's a must-see for any sleaze/exploit/sexploit lover. There's plenty of full-frontal nekkidness, and the sleaze-factor gets amped up towards the end as Olaf rapes the wife with his cane, and the last sex scene between client and captive is the strongest of the film. The film plays out kinda as a cross between BLOODSUCKING FREAKS (without the gore) and THRILLER: A CRUEL PICTURE (without smokin' hot Christina Lindberg) - but not as good as either of those films. Worth checkin' out - 7/10
