Truly sleazy and depraved dwarfsploitation flick., 28 June 2005
Author: HumanoidOfFlesh from Chyby, Poland

"The Sinful Dwarf" by Vidal Raski is about a creepy,leering,evil dwarf named Olaf who uses wind-up toy poodles as bait to capture beautiful young girls so he can tie them up in his attic,abuse them and sell their pretty bodies into slavery.This little known sickie is as outrageously sleazy and depraved as they get.The title sequence is wonderful,the newlywed couple is genuinely sympathetic and there is enough sex,rape,torture and drug addiction to satisfy fans of sleazy grindhouse cinema.The nudity is often full frontal and the camera spends plenty of time lingering on the girls as they lie naked on dirty mattresses in their grime covered room.Torben Bille is very convincing as a sleazy dwarf and his grotesque grin is truly bone-chilling."The Sinful Dwarf" is often compared to "Bloodsucking Freaks",so if you like them dirty give it a look.This is surely mean and twisted piece of exploitation trash.7 out of 10.
